Sam Mazzola has been wrestling bears for years, but now his bear-wrestling act is coming to an end as his federal license has been stripped.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has also fined Mazzola almost 14,000 dollars for bear-wrestling without a license, refusing to allow an inspection of an exhibit, threatening, abusing and harassing federal officials.
Mazzola has been taking his act to college town bars and county fairs for the last 25 years.
