A 6-year-old girl from Saudia Arabia is recovering from near-fatal injuries – she was attacked by a Lioness.
The lioness was SUPPOSED TO BE ‘TAME’ – and accustomed to playing with kids. So parents allowed their kids to get close to the wild animal.
This brings flashbacks of Harambe in 2016.
A 3-year-old boy slipped into the enclosure an was left alone for 10 minutes with the 450-pound gorilla while his mother was temporarily distracted by her other children when the boy fell into the exhibit.
The young boy was dragged across a moat before being fatally shot by zoo personnel. During the 10 minutes, Harambe dragged the child through the water, propping him up when he sat, or pushing him down when he stood and then carried the boy up a ladder out of the moat onto dry land.
The mother of the boy was then subjected to harassment from social media, blaming her for the death or Harambe as she was not paying attention to her child with even celebrities weighing in on behalf of the murdered animal.
If there’s one place that a parent should be extra vigilant, it’s definitely a zoo which is filled with wild animals. We’re just relieved that this did not end up in the death of a child.
That was a BIG mistake. Here’s the video:
