Bear with me on this.

Wasn't Heminges in charge of the dogs at the Bear garden? Did he not
arrange a private display of dogs against lion in the Tower for James
and his daughters? Would the Bear gardens only have had mean bears? A
retired and tamed bear could easily have ambled across the stage at the
Globe, could it not?

Snake charmers still exist all over the world. Dancing bears, and all
that it entails to tame them too, are still exploited in Eastern Europe
and the Balkans.

Yours in the name of Pooh,
William S.
