Baby's Zebra Hoodie Vs. Hungry Lion at Oregon Zoo

by

On the fine line between "oh, that's cute" and "what were they thinking," an Oregon mom has attracted national attention for placing her zebra hoodie-wearing 13-month-old next to a lion exhibit at the Portland Zoo. And of course, the mom videotaped what happened next.

The video shows a lion scratching, clawing and lunging at young Jack Baltzor, but never leaving a mark on him, thanks only to some thick plexiglass.

"He [Jack] loves kitties, so he was waving and saying, 'Hi kitty, kitty.'" said mother Heather Baltzor. "We weren't scared at all."
