So it's like Dumbo, but with less racism and more drinking?

Flash forward 8 years and the kids are taking a field trip to the zoo. One kid brags he rode that lion once. Lion lunges out and has kid for lunch.

Glad they're doing something other than drinking and getting into hideous wrecks in Russia.

FTA - While waiting for police, children petted and played with the cub, named Barsik. One boy even tried to ride it like a horse while it mewled and swiped at the air.

I knew an Armenian guy in college who went to elementary through middle school in Moscow, before headed to Stuyvesant in NYC for HS.

Dude was around the block and had some stories. The best stories came from Russia. Here is one:

One of his friends had an older brother who worked at the Zoo. As such, he found himself charged with caring for some of the larger animals in minor ways. Feeding the elephants. Changing the lions' water. Etc.

One day, they were blessed with a litter of bear cubs! 5 beautiful new baby black bears... that they didn't have room to house in the nursery. So the zoo was forced to either put one of them down or look for a suitable caretaker outside of the zoo. Needless to say, Older Russian Brother was more than happy to leverage his newfound experience dealing with these larger critters to get the privilege, some form of Russian contract was established, likely involving somebody's sister and a large amount of beets, and he proudly left work that evening with a baby black bear on a leash.

Fast forward 2 weeks. The bear has, obviously, grown a bit, but is still clearly a baby. He's walking it like a dog through a park in Moscow and a young man in his early 20s is walking his dog... also like a dog.

Except his dog isn't just a dog. It's a pitbull. That he fights.

This guy gets all up in this 18 year old kids face and says he'll pay him 100 bucks to let his dog fight his bear. Being 18 and 20 something respectively, (and Russian) the young men quickly reach an amicable arrangement and the die was cast.

The dog growled and spat and barked and feinted and lunged.

And the baby bear lazily reached it's paw up as if to pet the dog on the nose.

And completely broke the pitbull's jaw. The owner of the dog to which the broken jaw was attached scooped up his pup and wandered off, thoroughly disgruntled. Bear-boy, never saw that 100 dollars, but bear got a nice salmon to munch on that night.

Because... Russia.

/This story is the actual story, as related to me by the well traveled Armenian.

FTFY--if the determiner was just "Russian" and "Wild Cat", just about every Caturday would qualify thanks to a certain Russian fishing cat :D
