Would you ever try this?
As I watched this entertaining video, I wondered where the park officials were. Would they appreciate a zoo patron entertaining the lions and the other visitors in this way? Or would they immediately put a stop to this behavior? I know that aquariums always have a sign saying, “Do not tap on the glass.” The same principle might apply here.
I am guessing that we are supposed to let the lions be so they can follow their natural routines in their mock African environment.
After watching the video, check out some of the comments people have left. Many people think the lions were being tormented. While I was watching, I thought the lions looked playful, and as though they were enjoying this interaction. It seems to have broken up the boredom of their day.
