A zoo is an indeed worth visiting place, because of the fascination it provides to the eyes by it’s variety of animals and birds. The world’s most rare animals are kept in zoos usually in order to show them to public.
They’re brought from different places of the world solely for this purpose. The animals are also well served by the zoo keepers. However, there is a reason often animals are kept under some kind of cage or similar protection in the zoo.
It’s because some of them are beasts and wild in nature, so it’s best interest for humans to keep their wild foes in the cage so they can’t hurt them. There are also zoo safety rules which every visitor is strictly advised to follow for their own safety.
Some visitors however, take these rules for granted or either overestimate themselves, or in other words underestimate the animals. They don’t really think the animals can seriously harm them so they breach the safety protocols in order to get more close and take even better view of the wonderful animals.
If you’re one of such people and got away with it, consider yourself lucky. Because sometimes there are consequences.

Another person immediately comes forward to help and starts to pull the person back away from the orangutan’s cage. But the orangutan wasn’t joking around.
He quickly transitions and catches the person’s leg. The orangutan wraps his both hands and one foot around his leg strongly and at this point the victim is drowned in fear.
The helping person continues his effort to pull him away from the beast. At this moment, the ape lifts his feet off the ground and twists him. But with the continues effort of the helper, he is finally set free from the powerful grip of giant ape.
How strong are Orangutans?
