Some bizarre things happen at zoos. You’re talking about a location where animals are housed, so there must be some off-the-wall situations that arise for sure. Today we’re sharing some of the most bizarre things that happen at zoos to help you laugh, shake your head, or even drop your jaw at some of the most bizarre things that have happened at zoos.
Napoleon and Antosia
These two donkeys shared a long standing relationship and while this means having intercourse, the zoo was upset that the donkeys were “getting it on” in front of guests. So the zoo separated Napoleon and Antosia only to get flack from the public.
A petition was signed by 7,000 people citing that it was more psychologically damaging to the donkeys to separate them than it was to have them mate in front of guests at the zoo. Eventually the zoo reluctantly put the couple back together in the same enclosure.
Rhino Weed Guards
Apparently one zookeeper that was in his late 50s decided to use the rhino enclosure at a zoo to grow his cannabis. You see, who would check the rhinos that closely to notice it and up until someone told law enforcement about this zookeeper’s cannabis garden, no one noticed it!
The zoo was very upset about this and the zookeeper obviously committed a crime so he had be seen in front of a judge for his consequence while the zoo tried to regain it’s family-friendly reputation after having this coverage be all over the news.
The zookeep spent many years tending to his weed garden and making cash on drug deals with his rhino enclosure weed garden.
Poor Gus The Raccoon
Many zoos are considered petting zoos or at least have an area where visitors can pet the animals, well one raccoon decided to pet a human! That’s right, Gus the raccoon was lent out to a photographer where they did a commercial having Gus run off with a girls bra, and the raccoon was also photographed snuggled up to a half-naked woman.
The raccoon returned to the zoo very different than he was originally. He now liked to touch female guests’ breasts and was just never the friendly Gus he was before.
