Caesar the Wrestling Bear and other animals belonging to Sam Mazzola have the day off, maybe the whole weekend. They were slated to be on display at the Cleveland Sport, Travel & Outdoor Show, which opens at the I-X Center today at noon, The show runs through Sunday.


"As of now we’re not comfortable with what we see and it has been postponed until further notice," said I-X president Bob Peterson. Signs will be posted at the I-X entrance to alert patrons.


Mazzola’s license to exhibit exotic animals was cancelled by the U.S. Department of Agriculture in November and he has a hearing in May regarding numerous complaints involving public and animal safety.


Mazzola, who lives in Columbia Station, said Tuesday that his partner has a legal license and he is authorized to conduct business under that license. USDA spokesman Darby Holladay said that Mazzola cannot exhibit his animals using another person’s license.


Carole’s note:  Mazzola was also offering photos with tigers at the show.
