While it may only be Wednesday, we have likely already found this week’s biggest idiot.
Upon visiting a zoo in Guizhou’s capital of Guiyang, one man apparently felt that watching magnificent beasts of the wild going about their business only a few meters away from him was actually pretty boring.
To spice up the attraction, he started jumping around and gesticulating, apparently trying to catch the tigers’ attention by making himself look like a monkey.
However, his performance yielded no tangible results besides making a fool out of himself with the tigers apparently having better things to do than care about the crazed spectator.
As you can see on the warning sign right beside the man’s head, provoking the animals is strictly prohibited, and can be very dangerous.
Luckily, no one (and no tiger) got hurt, so despite his outrageous actions, he likely will not make it onto the list of this year’s worst zoo visitors — which already includes a family plucking feathers from peacocks, a granny snatching hair off a camel and an asshole chucking rocks at kangaroos.
