Offering another clear example of why we can't have nice (probably unethical) things, the mother of a two-year-old who fell into a zoo's cheetah enclosure yesterday is accused of dangling the boy over the exhibit beforehand.
After being pulled from the cheetah pit, the toddler was reportedly sent to an area hospital with a leg injury.
In a statement, the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo said it plans to file child endangerment charges against the boy's parents and that the cheetahs did not "attempt to interact" with the child.
"I think they were just curious as to what was going on and why somebody was in the pen with them because it's not every day that somebody is just in the pen with them," a zoo visitor told WKYC. "And everyone else is screaming and they probably got scared."
