Dancing Bear 1.jpg
Young man with his dancing bear near Ankara, Turkey. The standard method of training involves forcing a thick iron ring through the nose, which causes considerable pain when yanked. The bears ?dance? in an attempt to avoid the pain. Alternatively, music is played whilst the bear stands on hot plates, where it will dance to stop being burnt. It will then dance whenever it hears music..
