Well then…

March 8, 2005

In an attempt to train its employees for potential animal breakouts, a Japanese zoo has taken to simulating a real lion with a person dressed in a lion suit.  Yes, a person in a lion suit.  Rawr.

CLICK HERE to see the video.  My favorite part is the attack on the mesh fence.  Or maybe the expressions on the giraffes.

    Oh my lord, surely that could not have been done in complete seriousness. ! I was crying the whole time with laughter. ROOARR!!! The griaffes faces are classic.

    I was spellbound! I almost forgot that it wasn’t a real lion attack. Boy, special effects just get better and better!

    In reality, I can only hope that they used real tranquilizer darts.
