omg horror at the zoo

November 9, 2009

Real, live Animal Planet for visitors of the zoo, just ONE DAY after we were there—although I’m not sure I would have wanted to see this.

A baby deer, thought to be from nearby Rock Creek Park, somehow jumped the wall of the lion enclosure (it couldn’t have gone for Lemur Island instead??) and met its terrible fate.

A huge crowd had gathered to watch the terrible events unfold as the lions hunted and injured the baby deer, which had to be euthanized later because of its injuries.

It was like Bambi versus Nala. And Nala won.

There’s actually a video shot by someone who watched, you can check it out below but I warn you that it is waaaaay less uplifting than the Mambo Dog.

You can read the story from the Washington Post here.
