20 Unbelievably Wild Stories from Zookeepers
Zoos might keep their animals out of the wild, but they definitely don’t take the wild out of their animals. Zookeepers, aquarium workers and conservationists can attest to the fact that things get downright unhinged in their line of work, and we’re not just referring to the time some dolphins killed a seal and wore its skin on their faces. Humans can get pretty savage at the zoo, too — like the visitor who started throwing packages of store-bought meat into the lion enclosure, styrofoam and all.
To that end, we’ve rounded up some of the wildest things the animal keepers of Reddit have seen or heard on the job. Their stories will definitely make you respect the animal kingdom a little bit more.
