While some days feel like you’re being thrown to the lions, or rather, tigers, the feeling pretty much stays metaphorical. Sometimes we do stupid things because alcohol told us too and our bodies feel like they’ve been savaged by a tiger, but again, not actually. Well, the lady in this video, taken at the Toronto Zoo, decided that her hat was worth going into a tiger’s cage to get. And the man she gets into a fight with decided he needed to let her know just what he thinks of her decision. And the tiger is pretty much like WTF.
While that hat looks like it is definitely worth enough money to risk your life over – hey, $5 is $5 – I’m going to have to agree with the well-spoken gentleman who calls her out. That is French, right? Why in the fuck would someone think, “Oh, it’s just right there. I’ll jump down and get it real quick.” There’s no word on whether the genius with a death wish is in trouble, but the zoo is looking into it and an official had this to say, via CBC:
It was very irresponsible of this individual to jump over the boardwalk and [she] could have easily injured herself by exciting the animal in this way. The situation could have been much worse.
No shit it could have been worse. She might not have had a head to put that oh so dearly beloved hat back onto. The zoo went on to explain that the staffer tasked with watching the tiger also watches a few others so was not there because they were watching another pen. Honestly, sometimes it’s quite eye opening to see these things because it makes you wonder just how some people have managed to make it so far along in life based on their decisions. Then again, the things I do when drinks are involved probably rival this lady, so I’m not one to talk, but even at my worst I wouldn’t jump into a tiger cage for some fucking hat. It’s called common sense, but it clearly ain’t so common.
