Believe it or not, China regulations ban animal performances in circuses.
Though that doesn't stop illegal circuses from still having them.
The Jinan Animal Carnival Festival had promotional materials that made it look like there were fire juggling bears, goat riding monkeys and tigers riding horses.
That all sounds ahmayzing for a cartoon or something but ridiculously dangerous and cruel in real life.
Animal rights activists estimate that hundreds of these illegal performances go on each year!
A member of an animal protection group in Asia that's been documenting the use of animals in shows said:

Ian Somerhalder is a seriously caring, seriously delicious hunk of man meat.
He cares a heck of a lot about tons of things, but one thing he truly loves are animals.
After hearing about a girl who threatened to kill her dog, he was obviously upset.
If you haven't heard, there was a girl who messaged One Direction on Twitter, threatening to kill her dog if they didn't follow her.
She even posted pictures of her strangling a dog!! Though they turned out to be faked.
In response, he said:

Either Discovery is getting creative and cruel with a new viral campaign for Shark Week or some prankster wanted to celebrate Shark Week in their own weird way.
We're assuming the latter.
On a Queens-bound N train, passengers were surprised to find themselves riding alongside a dead sand shark!
No one saw how the shark ended up on the subway, but one witness who was possibly one of the first on the scene, said:

The two women are facing animal cruelty charges following the death of a pit bull who was chained up outside in some seriously intense heat.
Two pit bulls were chained up in the womens' backyard and were slowly dying all day in the intense heat.

This isn't a play on words or some Sharknado reference…
A man really wrestled with a 7-foot shark! And won!
On Nantucket beach, several young men were fishing when one of them caught a large shark!
Elliot Sudal, 24, dragged the massive beast onto the shore, snapped a couple of photos with the shark and then released it back into the water.
We're so glad that he put the shark back in the water!
At first we thought it was a cruel act of a young man trying to show off his big muscles, but then we realized he was trying to return the shark to its home!
Check out the video (above) to see a young, jacked guy wrestling with a huge shark!
