Dachshunds join the Ringling Brothers Circus

Six white Bengal tigers trained by 22-year-old Vicenta Pages of Florida, one of the few female tiger trainers in the world.

Three Asian elephants – the second-largest land mammals in the world and one of the most intelligent – stomp trunk to tail into the ring.

Five dachshunds perform tricks taught by animal trainer Diana Vedyashkina of Russia.

Wait.
