Lion rides horse in China freak show

The huge male lion clings on to the terrified horse – but this big cat is not about to devour his prey. Keepers in China are training lions and tigers to ride on horseback for tourists.

In one the nation's most notorious zoos, spectators are treated to a bizarre display as the lion leaps on to the horse's back.

Then it rides around the ring while a trainer with a whip keeps it moving. A tiger then jumps up on to the same horse.

The pictures are from a zoo in Xiamen in Fujian, South-East China. They come after bears were shown riding bikes during an 'Animal Games' in another zoo.

At the Xiogsen Bear and Tiger Mountain Village in Guilin, live animals are fed to tigers as a show for tourists.

Bears have also been made to pull cars in races against humans in Jinan. Via
