Russian player hires real, live bear for son's second birthday party | inside World Soccer

Torpedo Moscow midfielder Kirill Kombarov has received mass media attention after hiring a live bear as entertainment for his two-year-old son's birthday party.

Rather than hiring the usual magician or clown, Kombarov thought it was a good idea to hire a bear from the circus for his young son Timofei's party.

The 27-year-old hired the bear, which is available for private parties and events, from the Stepan Nikulin circus after seeing it perform on television.

The bear has also been featured in several films, which has increased its popularity throughout all of Russia.

Kombarov posted a photo of Timofei riding on the back of the enormous animal on Instagram before quickly deleting it.
