Lion At Japan Zoo Tries To Paw Boy Through Glass

With the horrible story of Harambe the gorilla making the news, all over the United States, it is nice to have an animal/child story that doesn't end in tragedy.

In Chiba, Japan, a lion is making news for his poor attempt at trying to eat a small kid through a protective glass. Do not worry, the child was never in any danger, and the only thing that was hurt on the lion was his sense of pride. He makes a valiant dash at the yellow coat wearing toddler, but ends up with a face full of barrier and a dejected walk back to the corner of his pen.
