The zoo was created so that people can see wild creatures in person – animals that do not normally live in the city or are endemic to certain places. For families and tour groups, this is truly a wonderful chance to have fun and meet these creatures but it can also be potentially dangerous since these are wild animals, after all.
Thankfully, the enclosures at the zoo are designed to keep the animals in their respective places, safe from harm in the hands of the tourists, and also prevented from attacking the zoo’s visitors while still allowing them to take pictures and watch the animals.
In a video shared on YouTube by HD-WORLD, animals could be seen attacking the tourists at the zoo but these aggressive actions did not directly reach the humans because of the glass enclosure. This makes us glad that zoos have glass enclosures to prevent these attacks – especially the ones made by the big cats attempting to prey on helpless humans and little children!
I could only imagine the fright these people felt upon realizing the animals had just attacked them! Check out some of the animal attacks here:
Even if zoos provide proper enclosures for the animals, it is always important for visitors to follow safely rules to prevent accidents which can be potentially deadly.
