Youtube got a bug up it`s ass and took this video down, Sorry. Their lame excuse was that it violated their `Shocking and Disgusting` policy, Yet they have not taken this same video down from CNN of Fox news` channels.

Youtube is hypocritical, If they are real `rules` they should apply to everyone equally, Regardless.

"You f*ck with a lion, you take your chances."

I`m amazed you didn`t make any sort of derogatory remark towards felines!!

"Why is Sea World ok and not circuses?"

As far as I know, Sea World does not force any of their animals to perform anymore.

chicobartend- he was trying to drown out peoples screaming for his child I`d imagine.

All those little kids, traumatized for life.

I don`t know if circus animals are really abused by their trainers, and I feel a lot of other people don`t know really either, they just assume so. Why is Sea World ok and not circuses?

Love how some of the cat say on their spots...lol. He totally deserved what he got, he started it anyway, the lions were just defending themselves, you poke a sharp object in my face and I`d jump all over your ass too. And if I were being attacked by a lion I would stay with the people with water hoses.

This is why Ringling Brothers opened the circus this year with no animals... its cruel and stupid... if you want to see a lion, TURN ON DISCOVERY CHANNEL OR FLY TO AFRICA. You put me in a small cage in my own feces for 10 years, then poke me in the face with a pole and see what I do...

I like how after the guy almost got both his arms ripped off, the first thing he does is fix his jacket.

Honestly, though, I don`t know how there could have been any other outcome when you poke a lion in the face.

ledzeppeloyd: Perhaps you don`t know this, But most all circus and zoo animals are bred in captivity, They`ve never been in the wild. Those animals would never survive in the wild, But that doesn`t make them `tame` either.

@CrakrJak
can you honestly say that circuses are not bad? taking animals out of the wild and training them to do stupid things for the amusement of others. I`m not talking about dogs either, because they have been bread from wolves for thousands of years. teaching you dog to roll over or sit is one thing but taking a lion exactly like you would find in the wild and bringing it vigorously around the world to do the same thing over and over again?

Not all circuses treat their animals badly and even those that don`t still risk the wildness of their animals coming out from time to time.

Making a blanket statement like `Circuses are evil` is just stupid, Even pets sometimes bite their owners.

Kalimata - What a great sense of indignation you portray...that seems like a lot of practice rather than innate ability. If I had to guess, you are probably the last pompous ass at the coffee shop looking around and thinking to yourself "Where did everybody go???"
Now, all that said, I gotta admit I was cheering for the lion in this little scenario.
BTW - kinda weird hearing all the English being spoken at a third rate Ukrainian circus...

I kind of laughed at the screaming crowd, especially the kids. This is what wild animals are like kids. They aren`t clowns, they can and will happily kill you. Funny how the whole crowd just leaves the place, like the lions are going to escape and get to the crowd. Gee, you weren`t so scared before it started attacking, even though you knew full well it could happen. I don`t just blame the trainers, I blame the stupid audience.

Seriously Edimesic, that`s a huge leap to make.

I absolutely love it when I see this happening, and have no problems when people die doing this either.

It is rewarding to see when an animal which has likely been abused, mistreated, and exhibited for our amusement finally rise up and dish out some hell on those who have hurt it. Matadors who are gored and killed by the bull, a blast to watch. Elephants, a very intelligent animal, smashing their mahouts because of years of beatings, I giggle.

Am I an immoral bastard who thinks this because it`s cool? No, I`m a human being who is disgusted by the way a lot of people treat the animals of this world, and I love it when I see these folks get their comeuppance. Animals are not ours to do with and treat how we please, they deserve our respect, and those handlers just didn`t respect the animal.

yeah i think the guy went too far with the lion when he poked him in the face. you can actually watch the lion`s expression go from mildly irritated to "OH HELL NO!" and then he attacks.

Totally agree. They really got what they deserved. I mean who wouldn`t defend themselves if someone backed them into a corner and hit them in the face with a metal stick? I hope they learned something from this. They were just lucky no one died.

@ Collegebound:

That`s a very sad expectation you had.
You`re probably one of these people that
listens to Death metal and watches violent animes,
because it`s dark which is cool, apparently.

Idiot.

It amazes me that people still go to and support these things. It`s very clear here how circuses abuse their animals.
Wild lions are not meant to be tamed, and it`s sad to see one who is.

so would id be the only one in that crowd that would be screaming `go for the throat` or something? cuz i mean they do kinda deserve it; playing with a carnivore and pretend that its just a cuddly little lion is just wrong. they take the reality out of the wild and put in the fictional idea that `you too can train animals and nothing could possibly go wrong`. sure they know the risks, but still, its kinda stupid when youre playing with an animal that is twice your size and four times your weight.

I woulda said the same thing. Or even something like "Good! You deserve it you non-nice individuals!"

Oh dear, how surprising. That nice fluffy little thing you taught to do tricks has got a tad upset about the way you treat it. But no doubt the lions will be shot and the trainers get some more, so it`s all good.

This is why circus`s should be frowned upon and shunned. Even possibly banned. What purpose does it serve to poke caged lions around? Sooner or later a wild animal is going to snap. If it`s not a lion, it`s a rogue elephant, or a wild gorilla... It`s a recipe for disaster.
