U.K. Zoo Bans Animal Prints Because They 'Confuse' The Animals
September 27, 2013
You might want to re-think wearing anything animal print next time you go to the zoo. The Chessington World of Adventures in the U.K. just announced that they’re banning guests from wearing animal prints…because it confuses the animals. Apparently, the animals have mistaken visitors wearing animal print for actual wildlife creatures. The animals either run away in fear or get overly excited and, well, get a little too close for comfort.
This “zero-tolerance” policy is so serious that the zoo needs Animal Print Bouncers to enforce it. If a bouncer finds you wearing zebra, giraffe, leopard, cheetah, tiger and even hyena prints, you’re handed a grey jumpsuit to wear for the rest of your visit. So it’s basically on the same level as committing an actual crime. Looks like grey is the new orange everyone!
