Why is this lion trying to eat a baby on live TV not a big deal?

Thursday August 11th, 2016

There’s a video that’s been going around the past couple days of a lion attempting to eat a child on a Mexican television show. Sounds horrifying, right? Then why did everybody but the kid act so chill?


Look at those smiles. Did they not just see a fierce predator attempt to quench its thirst for blood?

Or maybe this is just how you deal with a lion attack. I don’t know, I’m not a zookeeper.
