A Circus Bear Attacks One of the Handlers

A clip has been making the rounds of a circus bear in Russia attacking one of its handlers.  A trainer has it on a leash as it rides down a ramp on a skateboard.  But then it starts pulling away, and things go downhill from there.

Two handlers start HITTING the bear with large sticks, and then it jumps on top of one of them.  The trainer keeps pulling on the leash and eventually the bear lets the other handler go.  The guy gets back up and seems okay.
