Unsolved Mystery


Tragedy in Kyrgyzstan. An ice-skating bear goes beserk, leaving one man dead, another man seriously injured, and authorities completely baffled:
"The incident occurred during a rehearsal by the Russian state circus company troupe which was performing in Bishkek with the program, Bears on Ice," Ministry of Culture and Information director Kurmangazy Isanayev told reporters.
Isanayev says the bear, who was wearing skates at the time, attacked a 25-year old circus administrator nearly severing one of his legs and dragging him across the ice by his neck...
After the incident, the circus was cordoned off by police and emergency service workers.
It is unclear what prompted the bear to attack...

  1. Maybe he was sick of being made into a monkey.

  2. A bear that can juggle rings, while wearing ice skates. Yawn. But a bear that can juggle rings, while wearing ice skates, and all the while severing a grown man's leg and dragging him by his neck across an ice rink? Now thats talent!

  3. And to think this need never have happened if the Russian government had voted differently on the Skating Bears Unionization bill.
