We here at Great American Outdoors cannot stress enough, that whether you are out in the woods, or at the zoo, you must always exercise extreme caution around wild animals. Just because you might have seen a pretty girl petting a tiger in a video on YouTube, doesn’t mean that you can do the same thing. Wildlife biologists and zoo employees are individuals that have been around animals for years and if you ask them, they will always tell you not to get too close to them, as they are very unpredictable
Experience has taught us, that no matter how tame they may appear, they are, and always will be ‘wild’. There is a certain amount of unpredictability inherent in their nature that requires a great deal of caution and deference, no matter how tame they seem. Even domestic animals are unpredictable. Domestication is a process usually requiring thousands of years of genetic selection of wild animals for traits such as behavioral changes which render them safer to interact with. Safer nonetheless should not imply safe, as even domestic animals can be unpredictable.
