ZSL London Zoo transported a very realistic replica of an Asiatic lion through the city Thursday to its new home — and drummed up some publicity for a new exhibit in the process.
I definitely just saw 4 @OfficialZSL staff carrying an unconscious lion past Trafalgar Square.— Madeleine (@MadeleineKBurns) March 10, 2016
Mulling if this is a good or a bad augur.
In the exhibit, children will be called up to help "treat" the injured lion by holding drips and tending to its injuries.
“Our replica lion is so realistic, visitors joining in the action will get an incredible sense of what it’s like for the teams working in India to rescue injured animals," ZSL's live interpretation team leader Ruth Thomas said.
All that knowledge is well and good now but didn't help the poor, confused commuters.
