Can you blame it? A bear on ice skates attacked two Russian circus hands killing one before the other shot the 5-year-old animal. This is one of those victim-blaming situations I try to avoid. I understand there’s some cultural importance to ice skating bears in Russia, so I’ll only say that I’m sorry for the family of the man who died. I hope he loved working in the circus. The report says they’re not sure what made the animal snap. I’d recommend starting the investigation with the logic that you’re dealing with a bear on ice skates. It’s also sad that the bear didn’t live to hear the news that the Obama administration has set aside 20,000 square miles of land for his kind in Alaska. That bear would have had plenty of room to skate around during its retirement.
