Finding a way to share the natural world with the world’s most probing, curious animals human beings is complicated. But one zoo in New Zealand has found a way to let people gawk at wild animals while also putting people in their place.
The tables turn during Orana Wildlife Park’s Lion Encounter, which puts tourists in cages to view the wild animals.
The striking image has been making the rounds on the internet, giving voice to growing frustration with traditional zoo practices that keep animals in small enclosures.
“Love it! cage the people NOT the animals! View animals in THEIR own environment not OURS!” one commenter wrote.
