An open car window

By | August 10, 2017

An open car window almost led to fatal consequences at an already controversial zoo in China.In a video filmed by a fellow zoo visitor and posted on the blogging site Weibo, a group of Asiatic black bears can be seen rushing to the open car window. Witnesses say a child was in the backseat at the time.

One bear momentarily pokes its head into the back of the car, before the zoo, via loudspeaker, instructs the car to roll away.The Weibo user who uploaded the video claimed she saw the family feeding the bears from the car window. “Before the car was attacked by the bears, there was a window open and they were feeding the black bears,” she posted.

At Badaling Wildlife Park in Beijing, visitors are able to drive their cars through the attractions, getting up close and personal to the wildlife. The zoo also features several circus-like attractions. Online photos show large cats jumping through hoops of fire and balancing on rolling wheels.

The park has a strict policy against allowing visitors to roll down their windows, according to signs posted around the perimeter.Another sign reads: “Treasure your life, do not leave the car.”Last year, at the same zoo, a woman died after being fatally mauled by a tiger.
