A circus fell into chaos after a group of lions turned against their trainers.
At first a single lion pounces on a male performer. The music stops and a hose comes out to help push back the big cat.
The audience goes quiet, and it seems like the trainers may have things under control.
Then everything goes wrong.
A pair of lions double-team the trainer and the circus becomes a mad house. The audience panics as more trainers armed with hoses and poles scramble to break up the fight between man and beast.
Eventually the trainer escapes, but the show is clearly over as much of the crowd flees the chaos.
More and more circuses around the country are closing for good as allegations of animal abuse are dropping attendance to record lows.
Do you think animal circuses need to become a thing of the past?
