Bears Playing Hockey

As creepy and disconcerting as it sounds:



And yes folks, it's real:

Last fall the bloggers seemed wary that the videos were a CGI trick, but they’re not. Hockey-playing bears are actually something of a tradition in Russia. Terry Jones wrote in The Edmonton Sun in December 1998 of the Moscow Circus on Ice’s tour of Canada, and how three Russian Oilers — Mikhail Shtalenkov, Andrei Kovalenko and Boris Mironov — went to a small rink in Clive, Alta., for a photo op with the bears...

But questions of animal cruelty aside. Are you disturbed by how eerily close bear-hockey is to real hockey? Does seeing something like that make you wonder just how different we humans are from the animals over whom we supposedly have dominion?

It's fake. No bear paw, or for that matter ankle, would fit in a human skate. Ever seen a bear paw? It's about as big as a milk jug
