Hello Animal Lovers,
We have all played with cats before. When there isnt a laser pointer available, a shoelace or string is always handy to stimulate their natural pouncing instincts. But what do you do when you have a full cage of big cats like lions? They need stimulation and playtime too!
But a hulking full size lion sure can do a lot of damage. Oregon Zoo had a challenge in developing a safe yet strong enough toy for their big cats. They had a bunch of butcher paper on hand (for obvious reasons) so why not use that?
Playing with Lions
While you and your cat rely on a piece of string for entertainment, the Oregon Zoo needed something a little stronger for their lion exhibit!
