WATCH: Drunk man jumps into lion’s cage to ‘shake hands’ with the animal
HYDERABAD: You may have seen/watched people doing crazy stuff while under the influence of alcohol, but this Indian man went a miles ahead by jumping into lion’s cage to have an ‘amicable handshake’ with the wild predator.
A 35-year-old man, who had a few too many drinks, climbed into an actual lion’s den at a zoo, reportedly in an attempt to shake “hands” with a king of the jungle.
The man, seems relatively calm in the video, shot in May 2016, and amazingly got away without any injuries thanks to the staff at Hyderabad Zoo in India.
