This 2-year old boy in yellow jacket did not have any idea that visiting a zoo may put him in life endangered situation, thanks to the strong glass cage that everything is safe.
Enclosed in the trap for so long did not make this feline loose its animal instincts, as soon as this little kid turned his back on him, he tried to paw him and charged him with great force. If it was not for the strength of glass cage the result would have been catastrophic.
The boy visited this zoo in Chiba, Japan over the weekend
Although zookeepers claimed that the intention of the lion was not to harm. But who can tell? Watching him jumping from behind made us skip our beat for a while. Isn’t it??
As per the chief executive of Born Free USA, Adam Roberts, the result could have been ugly. He stated “Lions are the natural predators and the child in this video, especially when turning his back to the massive feline, became a prey in the animal’s eyes.” He added “The firm glass wall held the lion inside his enclosure, surely frustrating his innate instincts. If the barrier had not held up, the consequences could have been catastrophic. ”
Fortunately, the glass wall helped preventing this mishap from happening.
