|A Zoo Where You Can Even Touch The Dangerous Animals|
|Last Updated ( Saturday, 24 July 2010 )|
A controversial zoo in Argentina allows tourists to have
extremely close encounters with some of the most dangerous predators in the
Visitors can even pick up the smaller animals and manhandle them at risk to themselves and the creatures. Shockingly there doesn't appear to be much in the way of safety regulations to protect either humans or animals and Internet blogs are littered with pictures of tourists with the animals.
Even children are allowed to enter the lion's cage and fondle a
range of animals that have the potential to kill or maim them.
Animal protection charity, The Born Free Foundation, has
condemned the zoo and issued a statement to urge tourists not to visit it.
CEO of The Born Free Foundation add : 'The zoo is, in my view,
placing the lives of its visitors at great risk by encouraging them to have
'close encounters' with dangerous, potentially lethal, wild animals.
