Although some animals grew up in zoos and behaved very docilely, their instincts are still there, especially when encountering prey, which can easily lead to wild awakening. A zoo in Linfen City, Shanxi Province in mainland China recently held a special “Tiger-Rabbit Handover” ceremony to celebrate the transition from the Lunar Year of the Tiger to the Year of the Rabbit. Two staff members held a rabbit and a tiger cub in their arms and handed over. Before, let the rabbit almost become the New Year’s Eve dinner.
According to comprehensive land media reports, in order to celebrate the transition from the Lunar Year of the Tiger to the Year of the Rabbit, Linfen Zoo held a “Tiger and Rabbit Handover” ceremony. Two staff members held a rabbit and a tiger cub in their arms, allowing them to “handover” for the New Year’s Eve. Unexpectedly, the little tiger sniffed it first, then stretched out its paws and poked its head out to bite the rabbit. The sudden change shocked the on-site staff, they hurriedly called to stop and pulled it away, and the camera began to shake.
In order to avoid further accidents, the staff no longer put the rabbit and the little tiger together, but hugged one in each person’s arms. They simply said a few words to the camera and then ended hastily, finally ending the ceremony. After the picture was exposed, some netizens laughed and said, “It was a cutscene, it almost became a Chinese meal”, “The rabbit in the year of birth is really very dangerous”, “There is no danger, but luckily stop it in time, otherwise the rabbit I really can’t see the new year.”
Some netizens believe that zoos should not follow suit and hold similar handover activities. It is not very meaningful, and it is indeed prone to uncontrollable incidents. Manic. Human beings do this kind of self-indulgent ritual, okay?
