Yes. A 3 Year Old Chinese Girl Named, Xiaoyan Walked Over A Tiger Pit With A Tightrope. One day the girl loses balance because of high wind and dangles from a cable anchored to the high wire and attached to a harness she was wearing.

Should of been a lava pit, and no rope tied to him :)

are her parents stupid ?
I personally would not let my child do something as stupid as that!

O.o silly Asians and on another note if she did fall she would die of impact before any tigers got to her so really it is just a 3 yr old walking a tight rope

Not that I'd want to watch, but I don't personally see any problem with this provided the girl actually wants to do it. She should have a full harness and etc, but that would defeat the 'stunt' point of the act, and her age is only another facet of that point.

This sort of spectacle is, truth at least as I know it unbeholden to ye, how a lot of people around the world earn enough simply to put food on the table.

And to think that Asians made Pokemon... Psh. No wait, that was Japan. Eh.


Anyways, wow... I see that as amazing, but abusive. What the hell is her father thinking? Is he out of his mind? Seriously, thank god there's a rope, else she would've been tiger chow.

That looks a bit.... unsafe. I seriously wonder what her parents were thinking ._.

I feel sick right down to my stomach.

That's actually pretty uninteresting.
I bet if I trained a bunny with a pancake enough times, it could make it through a tightrope with a rope on it.

Unsafe? Yeah, I guess. But I don't think they're lazy enough to make such a weak rope. The shaking would be kinda unsafe, but I don't actually think a 3 year old would be hurt by that.

I saw this in the paper. There's something wrong with them seriously,

"Let's go and watch a child risk her life!"

That there is insane. Her parents are crazy.
A 3-YEAR OLD?! Her father is turning her into a circus freak at such an early age! D=

That was pretty radical. It reminded me of like, some intense training thing, and it's kind of cool that people actually do this stuff.

I can understand why it'd bother people, but she had a harness on and nothing actually happened, so whatever.

And as Cassino said, some folk need to do these sorts of things so that they can survive. Is it abuse? Probably, but wouldn't it be worse if the child starved, or got unwell because the family couldn't afford to pay for medical care?

I don't know why people are finding this sickening, it's just one stunt. I'm sure people would be fine if there was a world class bike stuntman who just happens to be five years old.


Also the tigers are fake.

I saw that that is not cool. That is scary. If I had a kid I would not let them do that.

As she's in full safety gear, there's nothing actually wrong with it. I find it fine, as long as the girl herself wants to do it.

And at the age of 3, actually doing it means you want to. At that age, if you don't want to do it, you are absolutely not going to do it, no matter what everyone else says.

I definetly agree. The parents and the kid had a choice whether or not to go with it. If she was afraid, then she wouldn't look so calm in the video. Also, when the fell off the rope, she didn't freak out (as I would have done XD), so I have a feeling that she practiced/prepared for this.

I loved the tiger's reactions to the little Chinese kid walking the tightrope :D

Holy crap what??!! *imagines an innocent little girl in tights crossing a thin tightrope with nothing but angry hungry tigers underneath*

*watches video* Oh. Pssh. xP The girl had a harness, there were people with her, the tigers looked totally calm-and amused-and to top it all off they were in a public park or something of the sort with several people watching. How awful. :P

*reads article* HUNGRY tigers??

...I'm pretty sure they prepared for that-nobody is that insane...right?

Oh well, as long as the girl was willing to do that I suppose it's not that bad.

Hypothetically: If the harness broke, and the tigers mauled the child, I'm sure there will be several bills -- not including the funeral costs or whatever they do there.

This, children, is why we don't let our 3 year-olds watch Jackass. :p
