The Russian football league has been criticised after a trained bear was forced to perform tricks before a third division game.

Turns out, the referee had to take the ball from the bear.

Before the starting whistle to the field brought a circus bear named Tim. Testirovanie animal wearing a muzzle.

Footage of a bear performing in front of fans before a Russian league match has been condemned as "shocking and inhumane" by animal welfare group PETA.

Elisa Allen, Animal Welfare Charity Director at PETA blasted the incident as cruel and "utterly out of touch".

Unconfirmed reports are even claiming that the stunt could be in preparation for something similar at the 2018 World Cup.
