i was more concerned about the CPR skills though, there was no way the guy looked, listened and felt for a full 10 secs before proceeding with chest compressions. His fingers weren't interlaced, his elbows weren't locked, generally a poor show.
@ whitemouse - you do not interlace fingers any more - lower hand flat on chest with the second hands palm resting on the first hands wrist are and fingers pointing up - this gives a point of pressure.
They were fire fighters (in blue) and did a good job - got him breathing again.... no probs.
Circuses using any non-domestic animal are archaic, and deserve nothing but utter contempt. Shame the guy didn't put up more of a fight the lion would have gone for the throat and done the job properly. The police officer screwing up the killing of the lion just about sums it up for me.
...and breathe, it's Friday!
the little dog in the background I believe was trying to lick up spots of the guy's blood, justice indeed!
You would've thought that they would have a tranquillizer gun seeing as they are keeping live, wild animals. My feelings on this are not mixed at all, animals like that are and will always be wild, that should be respected at all times and only within it's natural habitat. If anyone is stupid enough to try and manipulate nature then can they really be surprised when things go wrong? Just another example of what happens when some believe themselves to be above the laws of nature.
