The Lehe Ledu Wildlife Zoo in China offers tourists an opportunity to travel through their zoo in a cage, while wild animals roam free around them.
Many people are hesitant to visit zoos because the thought of caged animals forced to live in enclosures can be quite depressing. If you love to observe animals in the wild, but would like to do so safely, you should check out the Lehe Ledu Wildlife Zoo in China.
In order to lure the animals to the moving tourist vehicles, meat is tied to the exterior panels. The vehicle is then driven through the multiple enclosures, luring animals with the scent of meat. This provides tourists with an up close encounter to the majestic creatures.
In addition to meat being tied to the vehicles, tourists are allowed to feed the animals through a small opening. Supposedly, live chicken is a favorite treat for the animals, as they often pounce upon the vehicles for their meal.
There are multiple warnings posted to keep hands and fingers inside the vehicle, many experts feel that the proximity of animal claws and teeth to vistors’ body parts is an “accident waiting to happen”
Despite the risks, zoo spokeswoman Chan Llang says ““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.” Although this sounds like an incredibly thrilling, but dangerous attraction, when the attraction first opened in 2015, it was sold out for three months!
