The last time you went to the zoo, didn’t you want the lions to be more active? The great cats just lie around happy and well-fed in their captivity, without doing much to impress visitors. Well, in this video one man didn’t settle for just watching the beasts — he wanted to play with them.
No, this isn’t another video of a man climbing into an exhibit and being mauled, it’s one where the cats chase him around from the other side of the enclosure. Getting down on all fours, this man jumps around like an ape and plays with the cats from side to side, to the glee of many onlookers.
The person who uploaded the video, ShareBear, claims the man is her husband and that he makes everything more fun — including a day at the zoo. The younger lions run around with him, pawing at the glass and staring him down, in either an aggressive or playful manner, depending on who you ask.
The strength of the cats is pretty clear. These are young lions that have the ability to pounce and jump from side to side with amazing agility and power. The man would definitely be in trouble if the glass wasn’t there and they were a little more hungry.
