Apparently people in China are so bored they're paying to turn a pleasant zoo experience into the stuff of nightmares. Visitors to The Lehe Ledu Wildlife Park in Chongqing City can pay to be caged inside the back of a truck that's decorated with bloody meat, then paraded through an open animal park full of apex predators.
We wanted to give our visitors the thrill of being stalked and attacked by the big cats but with, of course, none of the risks," said zoo spokeswoman Chan Liang. "The guests are warned to keep their fingers and hands inside the cage at all times because a hungry tiger wouldn’t know the difference between them and breakfast."
The tour was announced just a few months after an eight-year-old girl was killed by a circus tiger at the very same theme park, so this can only end well. Still, the once-in-a-lifetime experience is sold out for the next three months.
