• Short Summary

    Big cats and elephants are trained to do tricks at St Louis Zoo.

  • Description

    Titles read: "JUST TRAINING.. [sic]".

    St Louis, Missouri, United States of America.

    Various shots at St Louis Zoo shows leopards and lionesses being trained to perform tricks in a circular cage. A large crowd of people stand outside watching as the big cats do a circus style act of walking on rolling barrels and jumping over each other. We then see elephants being trained to dance while one of them turns a music box handle with its trunk. The music is 'I'm A Little Teapot'.

    Cataloguer's note: could be viewed as being degrading to the animals.
