e tradition of “dancing” bears has existed in India for hundreds of years, since the days of the Mughul Emperors when nomadic gypsy tribesmen (Kalandars) would visit the palaces with a travelling menagerie of wild animals, including Sloth bears, which were forced to perform for the crowds. Unfortunately, whilst India developed and entered the 21st Century this practice continued, with the bears being used by Kalandar gypsies to entertain tourists around popular sites such as the Taj Mahal.
