• Short Summary

    Unpleasant item about circus tigers being made to race each other and jump over hurdles.

  • Description

    Titles read: "SEE! THOSE TIGERS".

    Sydney, Australia.

    At a circus we see Captain Flyger, tiger trainer, getting two tigers out of their cage and into a caged enclosure in the circus tent. He brings three visitors into the cage - Cyril Angles, Australian racing commentator, and a couple described as 'Cousin Shirley and Uncle Tommy'. Natural sound as Cyril and Tommy act scared while Shirley calmly makes notes and says she thinks one of the tigers would make a lovely fur coat.

    C/Us of the tigers snarling. Then Cyril describes the race between the two tigers as they are made to run around the cage and leap over hurdles - it's quite horrible. Cyril then comes out of the cage and acts scared when one of the tigers comes up towards him on the other side of the cage.
