This Dallas Zoo Lion is Clearly Trying to Devour a Small Child

Categories: Animal Welfare

The Dallas Zoo posted this clip to YouTube with the title "Lion Really Likes This Little Girl at Dallas Zoo." But that's pretty clearly not what's happening here. The animal is also not trying "to play with a little girl getting her picture taken."

That lioness is starving, and she's just stumbled upon a baby gazelle dressed in pink. MMM LUNCH.

Too cute but I think that lion may be racist

Our lions aren't starving. We promise. They love to eat. They even make us read them City of Ate every time there's a new post. - Laurie H.

If I were a lion and cruelly caged in I'd be quite upset as well.

Hmm...It didn't look like pouncing upon prey to me but I have the same lack of credibility the author has.

This could help the zoo out tremendously. Save on the food budget. Eliminate problems at schools.

Bad kids are fed to the lions.

Even the non-xtian ones.

@JaniceA  

Would this have anything to do with lions (or tigers) running around a tree so fast that they turn to butter?

@Montemalone I don't think so, girl.  I wouldn't take a trillion dollars to go on a date with that nasty little booger.

Myrna spends a little too much time on this site announcing who she wouldn't do.

@EricNicholson4@acidshock1. I was an animal control officer, animal health technician as well as holding a state issued wildlife rehabilitation permit when I was the director of the humane society for ten years but I would not say "clearly" anything from that video. (2 dogs and 5 cats here...)

@EricNicholson4 @acidshock1 I was questionable until I saw the last bit.  Duly noted.  Take bribe meat for the animals next time I go to Dallas Zoo with my son.  Good tip.

That's a relief. You rad SDS babes were incredibly easy in the day, and that was for a reason.
