Famous Russian animal tamers "The Zapashny Brothers" at work

For Edgard and Askold Zapashny the circus is much more than a workplace, it's a second home. It’s where they grew up with a big extended family. The two brothers were quite literally born to the circus, both their parents performed in the ring. A sense of duty compelled them to continue their father's dangerous legacy and become animal trainers rather than any other circus act. Circus life is both demanding and even dangerous; it takes a special kind of courage to stand up to wild and unpredictable animals.
