THERE IS A TIGER IN THE BATHROOM' 🐅
'There's a jungle cat in the bathroom!' - yes I'm quoting The Hangover but unlike that movie, this clip is real and depicts a thirsty circus tiger in a bathroom in Russia much to the surprise of this man who realises he needs to get by.
Sadly the circus has a prestigious place in national culture in Russia and many of the acts have historically used animals. Animal activists have been fighting to end the cruelty for years but have struggled in a country where fur coats are prized and hunting is part of the national identity.
Tigers are commonly used, painfully declawed and forced to jump through burning hoops even though they're terrified of fire. As reported recently in a story that shocked the world, Russia also has performing polar bears in their circuses that they chain and muzzle and force to 'sing' and dance 😒
and keep fighting for #AnimalRights
as wild animals deserve better than this. They are not our slaves or prisoners and they are #NotPets
. They don't exist to entertain us. They were #BornFree
so we need to fight to give them their #freedom
back as it was never ours to take.
