Oh, I'm sure she just wants to play.

phlegmmo: Oh, I'm sure she just wants to play.


Yep, she wants to play 'Eat the Baby'.

I don't think I could've watched that if it was my kid.

Those parents obviously have more faith in that glass than I would. I know it's most likely not going to break, but on that one-in-a-million chance, I think I'd have pulled my kid back a bit.

Exactly. I was a little freaked out just watching that.

I like the lady heard on the video: "That's like... um... almost, not... cool."

I had it turned down too low to hear that. That's funny. And true.

I wonder if the lion's reaction would be the same if the kid's parents didn't dress him up as a f*cking zebra!

calbert: I wonder if the lion's reaction would be the same if the kid's parents didn't dress him up as a f*cking zebra!


I thought the same thing. I could just hear the mama lion thinking, "Fun Sized Zebra? Is it Halloween already?"
 
2012-05-02 05:17:25 PM
Maybe they shouldn't have named the kid Lion Chow
 
2012-05-02 05:21:55 PM
I thought the lion was just interested in the kid until it fully opened it's jaws and tried to take a bite out of the kid's head. Too freaky for me, I would've pulled my kid away.

Yep. As soon as the lion starting pawing at the glass, my kid would have been moved well away from it.
 
2012-05-02 05:31:18 PM
I didn't hear anybody say anything about it almost not being cool. I heard two dumb women giggle and then one tell the kid to look behind him.

I thinks he wanted to rip off that sweater. Maybe she thought babby was a zebra.

Perfectly safe.
 
2012-05-02 06:23:24 PM

Mr. Fuzzypaws: Perfectly safe.


but still creepy. I think people don't realize that predators (even our lovely cat friends) are not well endowed with a sense of sympathy. They only respect that which is larger and more powerful than them. Everything else is food.

The level of stupidity is astounding. Never would I let an animal be put in a position to even even act that is was attacking a kid of mine..

Me too. The parental protective instinct would have kicked in and I would have picked my daughter up and pulled her away from the glass.

Man, every time I go to the Oregon Zoo I can barely see the lions because they are in the back corner. Guess I need to bring a small child next time.

To tutor it in the ways of righteousness..and procure some uncontaminated urine?
 
2012-05-02 08:51:50 PM
And you got these farking claws and these fangs, man! And you're looking at your claws and you're looking at your fangs. And you're thinking to yourself, you don't know what to do, man. "I don't know how to kill the bunny." With *this* you don't know how to kill the bunny, do you know what I mean?
 
2012-05-02 08:55:19 PM
That child needs my help WHY IS THIS GLASS HERE?!?!?
 
2012-05-02 09:00:51 PM
LOL! Imagine if there was no glass, the baby would be swallowed whole and most of the onlookers would get mauled to death. The Zoo would get sued out the wazoo and the lion would be put down. Luckily, there's glass and not broken glass everywhere. People pissing on the stairs, you know they just don't care. I can't take the smell, I can't take the noise no more. Got no money to move out, I guess I got no choice. Rats in the front room, roaches in the back. Junkie's in the alley with a baseball bat. I tried to get away, but I couldn't get far, 'cause a man with a tow-truck repossessed my car.

I have been at the zoo when a lioness launched herself full force at the glass where I was standing. After experiencing that, I came to a few conclusions that I would like to share.

1. That glass is damn thick, and extremely strong.
2. That is a very, very good thing.
3. I never, ever, want to be without glass like that between me and any lion that might be in the vicinity. They are big, heavy, and incredibly strong. A car would not slow them down a whole lot if they wanted the sweet creamy filling inside (you).
4. No matter how passionately or how cleverly you present the proposal, no zoo is going to be willing to give you a vendor's permit to sell fresh underwear right next to the lion exhibit.

mrlewish: The level of stupidity is astounding. Never would I let an animal be put in a position to even even act that is was attacking a kid of mine..


What would you do? Walk in there and beat the lion's ass? Scold an employee? It's not a nice thought, I know, but if a lion sees a small child, there's a good chance she'll want to chew it. She's a lion.

Ditto here, except replace "lion" with "enormous chimp." I went to the Honolulu Zoo a few years back and the chimps, for some reason, were going ballistic. One especially large male started getting running starts and launched himself repeatedly at the glass, making a thundering noise each time. I don't know if they were having fun or if they were distressed or trying to intimidate us, but it makes me realize how easily one ripped a woman's face off.

I knew I was safe, but it still scared the bejeezus out of me.

It looked like a juvenile lion, maybe even a male before his mane grows.

Most adult animals at the zoo learn that there is nothing they can do to the big monkeys on the other side of the glass and give up trying.

[ except Gorillas - they like to throw things and seem fond of throwing things against the window to make people jump - particularly when the people aren't watching them as happened to me with a date. ]

Went to the St. Louis Zoo while some family with younger kids was in town four or five winters ago. A male silverback was evidently threatened by the black jacket I was wearing (plus, I would assume, my stature), as he began to charge the glass and persisted for several minutes. I never felt in any danger, but the next time we went, they had strips of butcher paper hanging up covering from about knee- to neck-high, so as to keep the gorilla(s) a little calmer.

That was disturbing at a primal level. I had two overwhelming urges. The first was to try my damnedest to kill the lion, the second was to slap the hell out of the mom.

Btw, has anyone ever read The Veldt, by Ray Bradbury?

You can read it here

I think it's a New England ritual for parents to take their kids to the top of the shark tank at the New England Aquarium, and pretend they're going to throw their kids in there with the sharks.


Or maybe my parents had 'issues' with me...

 
2012-05-02 10:41:16 PM
I think it was the striped shirt.

"mmmm...delicious baby zebra."
 
2012-05-02 10:41:40 PM
Come on people, it's not that big of a deal. If you're willing to trust your car and driving skills when your children are passengers then being on the opposite end of an engineered barrier should be no different.

Oh, wait, you're upset because the big cat didn't get a midday toddler snack? Yeah, well, fark THOSE guys! Bunch of selfish jerks taunting a poor lion.

Reminds me of the Larson cartoon with the snake with bumps all over its head asking "Is it still there?" while the kid with Mickey Mouse ears looks into the glass enclosure.

That's why I always take a hippo with me if there are gonna be lions around.
