The story of the tiger, the lion and the elephant waiting at the side of the highway for transport after their circus truck burst into flames sounded almost like a scene in a movie when I first heard it – and it has lingered with me ever since.
Towards the end of last month, a circus truck belonging to Cirque Mondo from Montreal was travelling along a Quebec highway when a fire broke out. According to the reports, the truck was completely destroyed in the blaze.
Thanks to a cool-headed trainer and animal protection officials, the animals were unharmed. The two big cats were moved into cages, while the elephant was tethered to a lamp post. Apparently they were pretty unfazed by the whole thing, despite the fact that a blazing circus truck must have been a spectacular sight.
If only they could speak – just imagine what stories of circus life those animals could tell! Imagine this as a scene in an animated movie, where the main character is a rare Bengal tiger that is on the run from some ruthless poacher. He takes refuge in the circus and makes friends with a lion and elephant, but the poacher gets wind of him, and will stop at nothing – even arson, to get him…
Hmm, I reckon this is why I play slots, and don’t make animated movies! In keeping with today’s animal theme, try Vegas Palms‘ brand new game. It’s the first in the Untamed series, featuring the magnificent Bengal Tiger in its natural habitat. It’s a visually gorgeous casino game, and if you release your wild side and play for real money, you could get some fabulous wins!
