World's most dangerous petting zoo


Want to cuddle a lion or kiss a bear? First of all, you're crazy. But if your heart is set on it, the Lujan Zoo near Buenos Aires will let you interact with animals inside their cages. Some activists claim the animals — many of which were rescued after being rejected as pets — are calm because they're drugged. However, zoo keepers insist that's not the case; the animals are just full. "We feed all the animals, especially the predators, so they won't feel hungry when a human is inside their cage," said general manager Claudio Nieva. (Good idea, Claudio.) Click through the images above and decide if the animals look so full they just can't eat another bite.

OMGosh. I really, really, really hope that the animals are NOT drugged. And I really, really, really can not believe how crazy people are!

This makes me so sad. Wild animals are not meant for petting zoos. So frequently animals in these situations or ones kept as pets act like the wild animals they are and hurt someone. Then the animal is shot. So unfair.

And wild animals NEVER attack for any reason other than eating....


These brainiacs better hope those animals are drugged.
