Tiger’s got my girlfriend’s…sunglasses

BEIJING, May 13 — Attempting to retrieve his girlfriend’s dropped sunglasses, a man jumped into the pool of the Northeast Tiger Area at the Shanghai Zoo last month.

After his girlfriend’s 3,000 yuan ($429) sunglasses accidentally fell into the pool, the man immediately ordered zoo staff to cage the tigers so he could fish out the sunglasses himself.

Seeing they were hesitant, the man then claimed that he would jump in regardless, which forced the workers to comply to ensure his safety.

Stripping down to his white briefs, the man jumped into the cold and dirty pool in search of the glasses.

Despite his questionably brave efforts, the man came up empty handed.

A zoo worker who witnessed the event said he had never seen this kind of thing happened at the zoo before.

This article is from 2007, but the hypocrisy is in the fact that Jack Hanna should have known better than to take wild animals onto talk shows or out to schools.  We believe that it’s a monkey-see-monkey-do world out there and when people see celebrities, like Jack Hanna, taking cute baby wild cats into TV studios, they want to be like that guy, and will pay to pet exotic cats too. If not for the demand for cub petting, that has been caused by all of the showing off on stage and in film, there wouldn’t be incidents like the Zanesville Massacre in the first place.  What is even worse is that DC staffers tell us that Jack Hanna has become the mouthpiece for the ZAA which is a collection of second rate roadside zoos, in our opinion, and as such he has been trying to thwart our efforts to pass the Big Cat Public Safety Act.
