Russian bear stunt condemned by animal welfare group PETA

He’ll be jailed for this!’ – Russian fan throws live rooster at manager

Footage of a muzzled bear dancing in front of spectators at a Russian football match has been condemned as "inhumane" by a leading animal rights group.

While the game may have been overshadowed by more grandiose fixtures across the continent, Saturday's Russian Professional Football League (RPFL) schedule saw Mashuk-KMV take over FC Angusht Nazran in the big battle for 12th place.

Mimi Bekcechi, head of campaigns for PETA Australia, slammed the footage as "inhumane and utterly out of touch".

As revealed by the BBC Sport, PETA director Elisa Allen considered the move to be a unsafe one as well.

She said: 'In addition to being inhumane, using a bear as a captive servant to deliver a football is downright unsafe.

Man City escape transfer ban for Garre case
City are waiting to discover if they'll be hit with a transfer ban, according to reports in The Telegraph and The Daily Mail . City countered that Garre held an Italian passport and was therefore entitled to move after his 16th birthday.

The bear is Russia's national symbol and has just this week been incorporated into the country's premier league logo.

"Bears are wild animals and as such have very specific and complex needs".

Russian Federation is the host nation for this year's tournament, and the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) group have urged the country to stop abusing bears.

The group director delved deeply by describing the situation, hence giving support for their stance-why they consider the move tormenting for animals.

There's rumours the bear was to be used at the first match of the FIFA World Cup - however organisers have distanced themselves from the suggestion.
