Dartmoor Zoo, found in south west England, is offering patrons a once in a life time opportunity, to experience the raw power of a lion or tiger without getting their faces clawed off. For the low price of $30, you can see if you have the strength to separate a block of meat from a lions death grip. Here's something you should know, it will never happen. A freakin RUGBY TEAM went up against this lion and LOST. You think you and I or Joe Somebody over in the UK has a shot in hell at taking a lions dinner away? Nope. None.
And all of the animal rights activists saying this is "cruel" and are petitioning to shut the zoo down need to shut up. This is no different from picking up a toy at a dog park and playing with it. The dog gets some exercise, you realize how strong someone else's dog really is, you have a laugh and you move on. I won't pay someone $30 to play with their dog but I might if their dog was a lion! It's getting fed regardless, this is just away to engage them physically and mentally, making them work for their dinner, LIKE THEY WOULD IF THEY WERE OUT IN THE WILD. I'm all in on this. Maybe give the lions a few days off so the animal doesn't get annoyed that he has to do this for every meal, but as long as you're taking care of the animal? What's a game of tug-of-war going to do? Worse things are happening with our wildlife to be upset about than a zoo making sure their animals are in shape. Thank you, next. @Traceahamilton
