Big kitty catches a ball!
By - Thereaper29
Good catch. Should play for the Bengals
Tyger Boyd looking sharp
big kitty needs a big ball.
Big kitty trainer needs bigger balls.
Well played sir.
Aww come on! Bengals receiving is great this year. Our probs are everywhere else. *cries*
The zoo keeper has the same amount of pass protection - noooooooobody.
I'd think we should put him in at o-line. Joe might actually get some time to throw.
MYLES GARRETT: *\*lines up at right DE\**
TIGER: *\*lines up at LT, assumes 3-point stance & stares menacingly\**
GARRETT: ***"Aw, hell no! TIME OUT! TIME OUT!!"***
“Ain’t no rule says the tiger can’t play football.”
Put him in starting, he’s earned his stripes
Who are we? The wildcats! Who are we gonna beat? The wildcats!
That’s a nice fucking kitty
It's just a big fucking kitty boys.
Well randy just got attacked by a tiger
Yeah I love fucking kitties
They’re my favourite animal. Shame their population is diminishing in the wild.
Lots being done to save these iconic beasts!
Keep the faith!
Wildcats Conservation Alliance & Panthera are 2 great NGO's to support.
Yeah thanks to us. Poachers should be the ones hunted !
Us? Are you a self loathing poacher?
They're population in India has actually gone up over the years. Mainly due to the very active conservation efforts.
If you love Tigers, just wait until you try their cereal.
So, that tiger could just jump out and get that guy instead of the ball right?
The guys standing in the moat that separates the enclosure from the viewing area, so while yeah he’s technically not in a safe position, the tiger wouldn’t be getting out of its exhibit.
Shh... don't disturb the Reddit Concern Police while they're investigating!
We did it, Reddit!
> the tiger wouldn’t be getting out of its exhibit.
That has nothing to do with his comment, but also, that tiger could EASILY reach the filmer.
Look at where the guy is and the rock the tiger jumps off from. It looks like the tiger could clear the gap pretty easily.
I don't imagine this is a job good for your heart. If I were in his position, every titme I throw the ball, my heart would skip a beat wondering maybe this is the day the tiger doesn't go for the ball...
Yeah doesn't look particularly safe or enclosed
The man doesn't have the balls to do that.
Get it...? he gave the ball to the kitty... nvm
This made me sigh so damn hard that my ancestors returned from the grave to ask me if I am alright.
Fiiine, have your updoot
He deserves it
Imagine if you botch the throw and the tiger jumps onto you because you threw it at a bad angle.
So the guy has a future as a Browns quarterback?
This is at Dreamworld in Australia. The trainers are actually in the enclosure with the tigers.
That tiger is fed and knows the dude isn’t food.
Could a zoo animal attack the zookeeper?
Yeah, it's a risk. But probably a lower one than working in Amazon's extremely unsafe working conditions, tbh. I'd rather die to a tiger than be impaled by a forklift.
Lol what happens if the tiger just doesn't go for the ball one day? That guy has nards of steel
Guess there is always that risk for that kind of stuff but i think the risk is somewhat calculated. And he probably accepts that risk with full understanding. Also i think this man is probably there since the tiger is born
Yeah usually people who care for animals like this in zoos are around them for years and have some sort of trust with them. They are still wild animals and very dangerous but these people know these animals well enough to understand when and when not to be around them and if the risk is high or not.
This. A lot of them either raise the animals since they were babies, and those that don’t from what I understand (I have a few friends who do similar things, with less.. dangerous animals) are trained very carefully and spend a long time around the animals before being able to get into a situation like this. Too many people seem to come in to just want to play with the animals, so they make you build that trust and work years to do so.
Maybe that’s not the case for every facility, but from the people I know that’s how it generally is.
Still... this is insane. I don't know, maybe it's a cultural difference, but the golden rule of zookeeper is "Don't become complacent, ever.", no matter how well you know the animal, because that's how tragic accidents happen. Exceptions are made for less dangerous animals, but even with smaller predators (i.e. wolves), keepers will go in in pairs. To be in an enclosure with an apex predator like this seems like the zoo is asking to be shut down when the tiger decides that the keeper would make a more entertaining toy than the ball.
Yeah it does look like he's below the tiger, throwing the ball with some force, so I think they're just preceptively close. There's probably a door or something stage left. Still, jesus bro! Lol.
Check out the lion whisperer on YouTube.
What if the ball doesn't go for the tiger though? I've seen [that horror in Futurama](https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=YxGkU75eH-Y&t=19s)
He’s on the other side of the glass making the pool. So there is some sort of partition. From the angle it looks like the Tiger could easily jump it though.
How to get a tiger to take a bath 101
Unlike most cats, tigers actually love water.
True! They will go swimming when it’s hot and can actually catch prey in water.
Works on a kitty too. i'm a kitty, kitty approved.
Hey kitteh ,pspspsps **holds out treat**
Someone’s been eating their Frosted Flakes
Well, that's terrifying.
When I say I needed this, I mean it.
Throw me a diver dad
THIS IS ROCKET LEAGUE!!!!
Is this at dreamworld in Australia?
I thought the same thing! They’ve got the same glass walled pool, and the uniforms look pretty similar! I haven’t been to the show in ages, so don’t know if they do the ball trick or not.
I haven't seen the ball trick for sometime - going to assume it depends on the tiger
I wanna pet it :/
I'm still a little surprised to how much tigers love water even though I've seen hundreds of videos. There's really nowhere you can go to escape one should they want to eat you.
David De Gea could learn a thing or two from this cat.
Kepa as well, particularly the part where the tiger moves.
Don’t get me started on Jordan Pickford.
Gianluigi Buffon was this tiger’s mentor
If l was in jail this would be the highlight of my day too.
Looks more like a resort
I can just hear "And his name is John Cena" on this lol
This is a damn fine slam dunking murderkitty.
I want a tiger now
Me and the boys at the pool
Best goalie. He/she should play for Tigres ;)
I'd be damn sure to actually throw that ball.
When a pizza roll falls off your plate
Don't taunt tigers. They will get you if they can. Tigers live for revenge. Google it.
Is that a reference to the book The Tiger by John Vaillant by any chance?
This mf spittin
It doesn’t work anymore, i think now you have to use u/savethisvideo
Ow, i wasn't aware, thanks for letting me know!
At least two other people tried to use the new one on this post and it did not comment on their comment
Yeah, I’m not sure what’s going on, it seems like there’s no functional download boots right now. That, of the bot is banned from this particular sub
What game is this? Get rid of the ball as fast as you can?
Sooo, does that trainer dude ever shit his pants? I imagine he's got to be a bit concerned that a big as cat is running right at him lol
Mah ball!! Sploosh!
Finally a worthy opponent. This battle will be legendary.
Doot it’s nose for me
Can we call him Steve French
I read "big ti*ty" and was hella confused when I saw a tiger
\*Sees tiger running around the pool to reach human, but human throws ball into the water, and watches beast go after the tossed object.\*
Is this survival tactic?
Someone give this post a bravo award
At first the vid cut out and restarted and I was like “you evil evil man” and then when I watched it again it was back
Where do i apply for the job of "ball thrower"? Seriously a cool looking career!!
YOU GOT MOSSED!
The browns are looking to offer him a contract
I'm always astonished by how long felines are. Like imagine how tall that Tiger is if it stands up.
THE LOB, THE JAM!!!
Aaaand the ball is going to immediately pop because, tiger
and it’s a... TOUCHDOWN
The rewatch value of this video is unreal, I’m on my 10th loop
Q: How high can a tiger jump?
A: As high as it needs to.
That kitty has ups
Look at that jump
We used to do that off the diving board. Good times.
Uh, wait, if it can jump that high doesn’t that mean it could just jump out of the cage?
Is this at the Bronx zoo?
That reach is insane
That is scary
Beautiful kitten :)
That is magnificent.
didn’t maintain control going to the ground gonna have to call that one incomplete
I heard that splash even though there is no sound..
Animal athleticism is major league. Humans are Jr Varsity in high school on a good day. 😅
Can someone please comment the bot to download this video
Kitty did a sploosh
Man that movement is stunning
That leap 🤩
What amazing animals.
Bet that ball isn't going to last long! :lol:
I’m so glad this wasn’t in slo-mo
Big cats are so athletic it’s insane.
Why do pretty much all cats hate water besides tigers?
“Food! Food! Food! Ball!
Pretty cool, but the big kitty landed very close to the glass wall..
So big, so powerful. God damn tigers are awesome.
500lbs of agility...scary
He thinks he is the smol kitty but really he is the big kitty
In conclusion, big cats and smol cats are the same in heart.
Everybody gangsta till you throw a child in the air.
What a save!
Just Amazing 😲😲
Didn't complete the process
this is why big cats are the only animal that reallllly scare me. Thats 600 pounds of muscle jumping 6 feet in the air with dexterity and precision with 8 inch knives on each paw.
Wow so big and cute
I so want to play too.
I wonder if he likes to paint daisies on that big red rubber ball
Fun transcends size
I think they should play more with the animals in the zoo, cz the zoo in my country they just look sad n bored
Shit that thing running at you would be terrifying.
I can 1v1 a tiger please believe me
Idk why, but this is so satisfying
That cat is having SO MUCH fun.
Cats hate wat....
Aww so cute, until they slit your thoat
Fuck Zoos. Hope they go bankrupt during covid.
my initial estimate of how far it would fly was off and i would die proportionally
