Have You Seen This? Feeding llamas: A horror movie

Posted March 27

THE FARM — Ah, childhood, where zoos and feeding animals sounds like a magical mystery tour of delight and wonder.

Nothing could be more wholesome and pure than connecting with nature and animals and understanding the circle of life, right? Wrong — dead wrong...at least in the case of one forever-traumatized boy at the Tennessee Safari Park.

This poor little dude was probably psyched up to sit in the car and feed some llamas while surrounded by his mom, dad, and little brother. Bonding time is important for families after all. Feeding llamas probably still seemed so great when little brother was gleefully leaning out the window with his bucket of food, placidly feeding one of the hairy beasts in question.

But as you will see, the experience was absolutely not the ideal for big brother.

In the video, the camera pans over from the pleasant part of the feeding to reveal a horror movie starring an aggressively hungry lama and one sobbing kid. And despite my better judgment, the whole thing is hysterical.

Now, I usually don’t hold any truck with laughing at the pain of others, but I couldn’t help laughing my guts out when I saw this kid’s face. (And no, I don’t feel good about it.) To make us feel better for enjoying this child’s personal horror movie, let’s just say that it’s also important to have a healthy respect for nature and wild animals.
