Famous Animal Tamer Valter Zapashny Passed Away

The brilliant tamer and the Peoples Artist of Russia Valter Zapashny has died, aged 80, in Moscow after a long serious disease.
      Valter Zapashny was born on April 2, 1928 in the famous circus dynasty originating from 1882. Together with his brothers Mstislav and Igor he established the outstanding circus team The Zapashny Brothers, which acquired worldwide fame with its ground-breaking turns, many of which have been listed in the Guinness Book of Records.
      As a solo performer Valter Zapashny for the first time in the history of the world circus brought together 38 predators at once in a show, and was the first tamer ever who managed to saddle a lion. The legendary tamer honoured with the title of the Peoples Artist of Russia left the stage only at the age of 70.
      The farewell ceremony will take place in Moscow on Thursday, August 30.
