Leaping Lions! Creative Zookeeper Makes Toys That Big Cats Love

Zookeeper Beth Foster has to find unique ways to keep the big cats enriched at the Oregon Zoo so she used butcher paper to create toys for them. She created a rope that she lowers from the roof of the predator exhibit and the lions love leaping to try and catch them just like a smaller cat would. The toys keep the lions mentally and physically fit which can be a challenge for the zookeeper.
