Luckily the lion had put himself on a low-fat diet, so he didn't attack.

The 2nd video lion with the 2 men was just rough playing wasn't an attack if it was they would not be walking out with just minor flesh wounds.
Exactly. That is the most disturbing part. Zoos are not doing enough to protect the animals or humans. There should be no possibility for zoo animals and humans to ever have contact like that. But the zoos just don't really care. If an animal gets killed in an incident like this, they have plenty more. So they just put up minimum barriers needed to protect the zoo from liability.

There is a moat there with a fourteen foot drop that you cannot really see.

People can complain about the fence but that zoo has been there a long time (maybe that enclosure as well) without issue but there will always be someone who has to try to ruin something. That pretty much applies to everything in life. Too many people have to be protected from themselves.

If shes already reproduced, it’s not Darwin’s theory. Every single thread about someone who dies doing something stupid people come on and make the Darwin comments and they’re really not reflective of Darwins theories or how evolution actually works.

That’s actually not the case. Zoos are designed to create a habitat that is natural for the animal as possible. That’s why they don’t have more and bigger barriers. I don’t think they should design zoos for the occasional mentally ill person in mind. This kind of thing it’s been going on for years and years and years at zoos. You just hear about it more because of social media. I remember reading a couple of decades ago about a mentally ill woman who had done one of those adopt an animal things through the zoo. She adopted a panther. She came to believe that her and the panther had a bond. So she hid in the zoo and went into his enclosure after the zoo close and was killed. There are a lot of mentally ill people in this country, things are going to happen like this once in a while.

Also people are attacking the zoo for “not doing enough to protect animals and humans”, but this zoo did protect both because they had a big moat inside the enclosure that she was not able to cross to get to the lion or the lion to her.

To judge by the look on the lion's face, he took one look at her oversized butt, thought "Mmmm, looks tasty!", then reflected for a second and thought, "Nah, the vet told me my cholesterol is a bit high and I have to cut down on my fat intake."
