At the Lehe Ledu Wildlife Zoo in Chongqing, China, it’s the humans who are locked behind bars while the animals get to roam around. Visitors can book a tour where they will be locked in a cage in the back of a truck and driven through predators’ enclosures. Raw meat is hung on the sides of the cage, to encourage the animals to come closer. Zoo spokeswoman Chan Liang said,
“We wanted to give our visitors the thrill of being stalked and attacked by the big cats but with, of course, none of the risks. The guests are warned to keep their fingers and hands inside the cage at all times because a hungry tiger wouldn’t know the difference between them and breakfast.”
While this isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, the tours have been extremely successful so far and are already booked up three months in advance.
