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."
