Viral Video: Zoo Lion Tries to Eat a Baby Wearing Zebra-Like Stripes

"Jack is coincidentally dressed like a baby zebra in his black and white striped hoodie."

Do zoo animals get enough to eat? In January, the Blaze reported this viral video face-off between a lion and a 3-year-old. Lucky for the 3-year-old, there was a thick layer of Plexiglas giving her the confidence she wouldn't be harmed by the male lion.

Now, a lioness at a zoo in Portland, Ore., also gets frustrated when she can't get at her black-and-white stripped prey sitting on the other side of the glass. It's not a zebra the lioness is trying to reach -- it's a baby. Mom caught it all on film.

Watch as the baby is initially unaware of what is going on behind him but at the end notices the lion with a rather calm reaction:

Here's another angle of baby Jack enjoying himself behind the Plexiglas wall:

In the YouTube description, mom writes:

At the zoo in Portland, Oregon the usually lazy lioness, Kya, tries desperately to eat my son through the glass. Jack is coincidentally dressed like a baby zebra in his black and white striped hoodie. He is brave though and calls her "kitty kitty". That's my boy.

Someone in "Lion Tries to Eat Baby Part 1" says "that's, like, almost not cool", and mom seems to have gotten some other negative feedback on the footage she took. She voices a bit of this frustration in the description of the second video, writing "Jack was in no danger so save yourself the carpal tunnel."
