Amazing Video: Lion paws at baby from behind protective glass
PORTLAND, Ore. (CNN) -
Thank goodness for protective glass. A lion at the Oregon Zoo in Portland clearly wanted to get at the little boy who was sitting outside the exhibit.
The child barely noticed what was happening but something about him sure got the animal's attention. His mother, Heather Baltzor says she wasn't worried. "We just thought it was hilarious. Some people were like, oh my gosh move him out of there, but he wasn't scared, if he was scared I would have picked him up. We didn't think, we didn't notice he looked like a zebra until someone told us that on Facebook. He looked like a tasty baby zebra."
Zoo workers say the lions often interact with young visitors and the glass keeps them safe.
