Circus Krone Celebrates Second Premiere Of Winter Season

And this is why animals shouldn't be forced to perform. The whole thing went down at a circus in Moshkovo in the Russian region of Novosbirsk.

Two lionesses - named Vega and Santa - entered the ring and were fighting aggressively before Mr Orlov enters the ring. Vega then turns towards the trainer and attacks him leaving him with arm and leg injuries. According to reports the lions will not perform anymore and some are calling for live animals to be banned from the circus.

The trainer said “Cases such as today are very rare, but animals are animals. Vega is five years old and has been wayward since childhood.”
