Brave Service Dog Stared Down A Pair Of Lions Who Were Up To No Good
This may be the bravest service dog we ever seen.
A good boy named Jetson accompanied his human to the Indianapolis Zoo when a sneaky pair of lions decided to take a few swipes at him from the other side of the glass. Most of us would be freaked out if not eerily uncomfortable knowing that only a few inches of protective glass separated us from shreds, but Jetson — knowing he had to be calm for his person —cooly observed the grumpy kitties like it was NBD.
Jetson's mom, RJ, 15, posted the video of the encounter and can be heard saying, "Jetson, you're awesome."
RJ explained to FOX59 that she doesn't typically bring her service dog to zoos because most do not recommend bringing outside animals because of the stress it can cause everyone involved. However, the Indianapolis Zoo is very accommodating to visitors with special needs.
"I was pretty surprised by the way Jetson acted, I thought he would've been a bit more curious as to what the lions were trying to do. I was surprised that he just looked and sat down," RJ told FOX59.
Good boy, Jetson. Way to not lose your cool when kitters misbehave.
