Horse Savagely Attacked By Lion And Tiger In Circus Stunt Gone Wrong

All around the world, people’s eyes are being opened up to the devastating reality of animal cruelty.

In days gone by, circuses were a popular form of entertainment, but they have decreased in popularity as people have become increasingly aware of the cruelty which is used to keep circus animals in check. In fact, many countries have banned them altogether. Now, shocking footage of a lion and a tiger attacking a horse in a circus stunt gone wrong has emerged. The incident, which took place in Cangzhou City, in China’s northern Hebei Province during a rehearsal, involved trainers attempting to coax a lion and a tiger onto a horse’s back. It had been fitted with a small platform instead of a saddle. Instead of cooperating as expected, the shocking footage opens with the lion viciously attacking the horse. While this happens, the lion is hit repeatedly with a whip as the circus trainers try to save the stricken horse. “The animals didn’t cooperate too well,” a spokesman said. “The horse kicked the lion, which began biting it in return.” The situation went from bad to worse when the tiger decided to join in on the frenzied attack, knawing on the horse’s legs. After a repeated whipping, the lion and the tiger were eventually drawn away from the horse, which, amazingly, was left with only minor injuries. However, the most shocking part of this incident was that the circus spokesman said that it was “normal”. The show subsequently went ahead as planned, and there was no investigation into the animals’ welfare. “Lions and tigers are wild animals,” the spokesman added. “They are different from horses. You can see from documentaries that they eat cows. This is absolutely normal.” Despite the animals’ aggression being apparent, the circus’ spokesman said that they posed no danger to staff because they have worked with them from an early age.

Keith Guo, PETA Asia press officer for China said that “it’s only a matter of time before captive animals lash out at their oppressor.”

“Big cats in the circus suffer mentally and physically every single day. When they are not performing, they are confined in cramped, filthy cages and whips and beatings are used to force them to perform.”

The footage was uploaded to Weibo, a Chinese social media site, and it prompted users to call on the government to tackle animal cruelty problems. “Shut down the circus! This is too cruel to both wildlife and domestic animals!” wrote Joyemiao. Check out the shocking footage below:

Woman Dumps Boyfriend After Being “Creepy” Close With His Sister

It’s kind of nice when a guy is close with his family. After all, a lot can be determined by how a man treats others. However, sometimes being close can be too close.

We’ve all probably had to deal with meddling parents, but what about a sister? Sometimes siblings can be overprotective of each other but for one Australian man, his sister was acting just downright creepy. Jacinta, a 30-year-old from Australia, tells the tale of how her boyfriend’s creepy sister ended their relationship. Jacinta says she had been in a relationship with a man named Jack and initially found his closeness to his tight-knit family endearing. He was a kind and sensitive man who “never had a bad word to say about anyone” and Jacinta fell for him. She understood that he and his sister, Mel, were close, but didn’t realize just how close at first. Their family home had lots of pictures of the siblings together and Mel was always very supportive of Jack, but it soon became apparent that Mel had few friends of her own and often showed up at Jacinta and Jack’s dates. “I started to notice that nine out of 10 times we went out, Melinda would be there,” Jacinta claimed. “She never seemed to go out with her own friends. She would always sit next to Jack. Would do whatever Jack said. Never had a difference of opinion to Jack. Never even fought with Jack.” She continued, “By contrast, my siblings and I fought like cats and dogs growing up.” If you’re wondering if this all sounds a little family, it’s probably because Rachel from Friends found herself in a very similar situation with her boyfriend:

Once, Jacinta claims that Mel was spying while she and Jack snuggled on the couch. Mel glared at the couple while holding a glass of while, and once Jack acknowledged her presence, she stormed off. Jack simply rubbed off the encounter by saying his sister was “not in a good mood”. However, things got creepier when Mel admitted her “dream guy” was her brother and Jacinta found her in his bed one day. “I was going to stay over, so I went into his bedroom and was trying to set up and she was asleep in his bed,” Jacinta said. “It was the straw that broke the camel’s back… I had to walk out of the room and ask Jack why she was there.” Jacinta reveals that Jack simply said “she does that sometimes” and defensively tried to convince Jacinta that it was normal behavior. Jacinta broke it off with Jack because of the creepy behavior and the fact that she didn’t want to be the one who came between him and his family. She claims she once ran into an ex-girlfriend of Jack’s and she told Jacinta that her only competition was Mel, which made Jacinta wonder if his ex had ended her relationship with Jack for the same reasons. “I like close families but it’s difficult to have a relationship with someone when there was always a third wheel… especially when the third wheel is from the same genetic makeup,” Jacinta said. Jacinta is now happily married. There is no word on how Jack, or his sister, are doing these days.

Man Claims His Apartment Is Haunted By A Demonic Baby And Has A Video To Prove It

Most of us are first introduced to the supernatural when we hear about ghosts as kids. Usually this happens whilst we are watching TV, or when a parent suggests dressing up as one at Halloween because, y’know, it’s a good way to save money on a decent costume.

Us humans are fascinated by ghosts, and the afterlife in general. Although there is no absolute scientific evidence that ghouls exist, there have been countless reports of sightings over the years and, since the invention of photography, questionable looking spectres appearing in pictures. My mom has always been a great believer in the supernatural, and when I was about eight years old, she made the rookie error of telling me a bedtime story that left me unable to sleep for months. It was about a ghost called the Grey Lady. According to my mom, she saw the Grey Lady whilst recovering from an operation. Legend has it that she was once a nurse who worked at the hospital and committed suicide after making a fatal mistake. She reportedly appears whenever there’s a crisis. Another story that resulted in me running into my parents’ bedroom cowering was about my grandpa. He’d worked as a gravedigger, and my mom, failing to learn from the Grey Lady incident, told me about something creepy that had happened to him. Looking back, this was her way of trying to convince me that an afterlife exists. She told me that one night my grandpa’s dog, who usually happily went with him to the graveyard, refused to go anywhere near its gates after seeing something he couldn’t. But now New Yorker Adam Ellis, pictured above, has claimed to have evidence of something a lot more terrifying than whatever spooked my grandpa’s dog and the Grey Lady. There’s a demonic baby haunting his apartment, and he’s got the pictures to prove it! Adam hasn’t just revealed that there’s a demonic baby haunting his apartment, he’s gone as far as to say they’ve got a name, and it’s as a terrifying as you’d expect it to be. The demonic baby is apparently called “Dear David”. Adam decided to take to social media to share the haunting with the world, and now thousands of people are eagerly awaiting his updates about what Dear David has done next on Twitter. “The first time I saw him, I was experiencing sleep paralysis and saw a child sitting in the green rocking chair at the foot of my bed,” Adam wrote. “He had a huge misshapen head that was dented on one side. I did my best to draw it.” “So, my apartment is currently being haunted by the ghost of a dead child, and he’s trying to kill me. He started appearing in dreams, but I think he’s crossed over into the real world now,” Adam wrote on the seventh of August. “For a while he just stared at me, but then he got out of the chair and started shambling toward the bed. I couldn’t move because I was paralyzed. (I have sleep paralysis fairly often. It sucks.) Right before he reached my bed, I woke up screaming.” “I had another dream a few nights later, where I was in a library, and a girl came up to me and said, ‘You’ve seen Dear David, haven’t you?’” the New York native wrote. Determined to prove that it was more than just a figment of his imagination, Adam began to record supernatural happenings in his apartment at night. Pictured below is one of Adam’s cats staring at a glass which has just moved of its own accord: The haunting eventually got so bad that Adam decided to move into the apartment above the one he had been living in an attempt to escape Dear David’s tyranny, but it was to no avail. When he moved into the new apartment, his cats went to his front door at midnight, causing him to believe that there was something supernatural on the other side of it. This is sounding freakishly like what happened to my grandpa! “If David is going to kill me, maybe I can at least get evidence on my phone,” he eventually concluded. Adam posted the resulting photographs on Twitter on the seventh of November, and to call them terrifying would be putting it mildly. To make matters worse, the New York man hasn’t provided any updates on the story since posting these pictures which, as much as I don’t want to believe it, could be evidence that Dear David has finally succeeded in his mission to kill him. However, it’s more than likely that he’s simply been spooked into silence. But it turns out that not call ghosts are as evil as Dear David. A “ghost man” was seemingly caught on camera saving a little girl’s life: We hope that Adam eventually sees sense and calls in the only people equipped to deal with this situation… You can keep up with the story by following Adam’s Twitter.
