Would your cat enjoy a ride on your Royal Enfield?

The roar of motors.
In India, Royal Enfield motorcycles regularly go crashing through walls of fluorescent tubes and diving through flaming hoops. I've never spotted a Royal Enfield in one of the "Wall of Death" stunts so popular in America.

But I couldn't resist bringing you the picture and video shown here of lions going for a thrill ride on the circular walls. These were featured recently on Boing Boing, where my daughter Anna spotted them.

They appear to show different lions, different cars and different riders. But one thing they have in common: in both video and still photo, the lion seems to be enjoying the ride.

Humans aren't the only species that enjoys a thrill. Click on the image below to see the video.

    Looks like animal abuse to me. Fortunately we progressed over time to the point where this type of abusive exploitation of animals against the law in most countries.
