While most people see a trip to the zoo (petting or otherwise) as a nice family activity, I can’t help but run through all the “what if” scenarios. For example, I can’t help but think, “what if the animals don’t like me? What if they escape from their enclosures? What if they attack me? Us? I can’t run that fast. Dammit, Mr. Noodle, I am doomed.”
In my mind, this is not an irrational fear and this video of when animals attack proves that.
Do you still want to take a trip to African Lion Safari and drive through the park? No thanks. I’d rather sit at home and watch Animal Planet where I know I’ll be safe.
