Honey, I Dropped the Kid

Oh for crying out loud. A woman decided to dangle her two year old kid over the cheetah enclosure at a Cleveland zoo (what could possibly go wrong?). Whoopsie…he slipped. The child kaboomed 12ft to the bottom of the pit where the cheetahs just stared. Meanwhile, the horrified parents did the super hero act by jumping in for a rescue. In a kind “what now” scenerio the family waited to be rescued by head shaking staff. Zoo officials said the cheetahs didn’t attack because the whole episode scared the bejezzus out of them.

Oh Deer

Of all the stupid things a white tailed deer could do, jumping into a cheetah enclosure at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo is way up there. Nothing left but a carcass and some very happy cheetahs.
