Shanghai Wild Animal Park, the same zoo recently in the news for being guilty of animal abuse towards bears, is at it again with this year’s edition of their annual Animal Games. Over 200 animals and 30 different species are participating in over 40
circus athletic events, including pole-climbing for monkeys, a high-jump for dogs, and a parallel bars competition for the recently abused black bears. When the poor bears aren’t being farmed for their bile, or getting randomly kicked, they have to ride bikes and do gymnastics routines. Marvelous.
So we’re guessing the ill treatment received by animals at the zoo might now be justified, since they were preparing for their own Olympics? Somebody let those mammals know that eating bowls of bitter is the only way to win gold medals!
