4 Times People Lacked Judgement at the Zoo

Natural selection at work

If you haven’t heard, a woman jumped into a tiger’s enclosure at the Toronto Zoo over the weekend to retrieve her hat. It seems that hopping into wild animals’ cages is an everlasting trend, as we continue to hear about these crazy incidents. Some of the bright individuals just want to be close enough to pet a tiger, and others want to cuddle a cougar. Whatever their intentions, some of these animal cage incidents end better than others.

Take a look:
 

1. LADY JUMPS IN TIGER CAGE AT TORONTO ZOO

This past weekend in Toronto, a woman jumped in a Sumatran tiger enclosure at the Toronto Zoo to retrieve her fallen hat. We can assume that the hat was a one of a kind, vintage hat encrusted in diamonds.

As you can see, fellow zoo-goers were not happy with this lady’s decision, with one man yelling at her repeatedly saying she was a “moron”. Thankfully, the lady is safe and she even got her hat back in one piece!
 

2. MAN JUMPS FROM CHAIR LIFT INTO TIGER ENCLOSURE AT CHINA’S HENAN PROVINCE

In this incident, the man in the video at China’s Henan Province attempts to do a somersault into a tiger enclosure from a chairlift… Not only does the man not complete his somersault, but also is saved by a massive safety net residing above the tiger enclosure.

After being caught by the safety net only slightly above the tigers, a zookeeper comes to rescue the man. According to the zookeeper, the man said that he didn’t do a good somersault… because that’s what matters.
 

3. MAN MEDITATES IN TIGER DEN AT INDIA’S GWALIOR ZOO

This guy truly takes the cake. After jumping a 20-foot wall to enter the tiger enclosure, the man walks around with confidence and stops to take off his shirt. One tiger even gets so intimated by the man that it runs away to hide. The man even goes as far as to shout at the tiger, urging him to come out from hiding. The man even pauses to take in the moment, stopping to meditate. At least he came out alive…


 

4. GUY JUMPS FENCE TO PET COUGAR IN OHIO’S COLUMBUS ZOO

This guy just really wanted to give the cougars’ heads a good scratch. The man hopped over the safety fence in Ohio’s Columbus Zoo to get to the cougars while repeating, “Here, kitty kitty kitty”. Basically, he treats the cougars just like his own. The cougars’ response is actually kind of cute…

No matter how cute animals at the zoo are, maybe do yourself a favour and just stay out of their cages. For your own safety.
