Visitors to Hangzhou Zoo have reportedly developed a nasty habit of throwing snowballs at animals, who are none too pleased. Perhaps least amused of all are the lions, who, seriously, are way too high on the food chain to have to deal with this shit.
According to @wblbs on Sina Weibo, the zoo-goers throw hard, and the animals are annoyed enough to actively attempt to dodge the projectiles.
“Hard” may be somewhat of an embellishment though. Look at that kid in the above picture, who has the throwing form of a penguin, with half the grace. He would survive five minutes in the jungle, and faced with a lion, would crap his pants in 1.2 seconds, tops. I would pay to see that.
Don’t hurl snowballs at animals, assholes.
