The Detroit Zoo is serious about its local NFL team.
On Wednesday, zoo personnel placed a Chicago Bear into the lion's den.
"We introduce new items and elements to all the animals at the zoo on a daily basis as part of our environmental enrichment program," animal welfare manager Elizabeth Arbaugh told the Shelby-Utica Patch on Wednesday. "We don't always use food. The key is to keep it unpredictable, like nature itself."
In our experience, we've found it a bad idea to feed wild animals raw meat that's dressed to look like people. Then again, we don't actually have any zoo experience. Let's just get back to football.
