For one day only the glorious English tradition of subjecting defenceless animals to mindless cruelty and senseless exploitation in the name of pastoral entertainment shall return to the English Countryside! The 21st C Ethical Bear Baiting Bonanza provides the general public the opportunity to exploit Kitunda Argyle’s ethically-sourced semi-tame bear in a myriad of exciting and (relatively) safe ways. Try your hand at bear baiting! Watch him comically dance and prance! And if you successfully manage to Guess the Weight of the Bear, YOU can take him home to keep and do with what you will!
No bears are harmed during this performance (the safety of audience members however cannot be guaranteed)
