This is not your typical Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey kind of circus. A video, believed to have been filmed at the Shanghai Wild Animal Park, has started to make the rounds on the Internet. It shows a bear and two monkeys in a bicycle race. After a push from the humans, the animals make two laps around a small track before one of the monkeys crashes into the bear and gets trapped beneath its bicycle.
The bear eats eats the monkey.
The folks at the circus rush over to try to stop the bear from eating the monkey, while others take the second monkey away from the scene.
It is not clear when the latest video was taken but Shanghai Wild Animal Park said in 2006 that the Olympic event had been scrapped following complaints and 'out of consideration for the safety of our visitors.'
