The four-legged artist of the Big Moscow Circus was sent to the deserved rest due to his old age, told the animal trainer Irina Levitskaya.
A twelve-year-old goat named Yuronka worked at the circus for ten years. He was able to perform more than twenty tricks in the arena. One of the features of the horned star was the ability to open various locks, including door latches and zippers on clothing.
In 2019, Yuronka’s legs failed. He was worthy of retirement and came up with a kind of rehabilitation program. The elderly animal was equipped with a separate cage with bedding, was provided with fresh grass, vegetables, and fruits, and the trainer gives daily foot massage to his ward.
