Unbearable - Courchevel Enquirer
I don’t know if its just a French thing but Courchevel’s Marie discovered quickly that hiring a guy to parade around a black bear for the women’s FIS world cup giant slalom isn’t the most politically correct thing nowadays. After posting images on Facebook a torrent of negative messages arrived which resulted in the removal of the post.

Here is a sample

“When will these medieval practices stop? The place of a bear is not in a show, nor among a crowd, nor in transport; his place is in the forest with his homies. Moreover it is certainly not educational to show children a wild animal made slave of the man”

For anyone who loves animals seeing one being lead around by a stick is heartbreaking.

Maybe next year they can choose something slightly less tasteless. Maybe invite Donald Trump….
