Animal Print clothing got banned in Chessington World of Adventures Resort. Animals would try to communicate with the people wearing those prints. Those animals would then scare away those people. This involves animals because they get scared as well as the humans. They also get confused.

At a zoo there is ZERO tolerance policy on wearing any animal print.  The animal print causes the animals to try and communicate with the person wearing the clothing.  People that are wearing the animal print clothing could come face- to- face with animals thinking you are another animal.  If you wear the animal print you could come face- to- face with white rhinos, giraffes, flimingoes, waterbuck, and several other animals at the zoo.  There are several other animal print that you cant wear.  You cant wear zebra pint, giraffe print, leperad print, cheetah print,  tiger print, spotted hyena, striped hyena, and finally african wild dog.

People that are wearing the animal print clothing could come face- to- face with animals thinking you are another animal. Witch is not a good thin.. It could become deadly.  If you wear the animal print you could come face- to- face with many animals such as the following,  white rhinos, giraffes, flimingoes, waterbuck, and several other animals at the zoo.  There are several other animal print that you cant wear.  You cant wear zebra pint, giraffe print, leperad print, cheetah print,  tiger print, spotted hyena, striped hyena, and finally african wild dog.

My insight on this is that I don't believe this is safe at all even though there is no one on the streets. Also, why aren't there police or people getting the animals together and getting them off public streets? Different countries other than where I live really confuse me.

We've all no doubt heard of the polite deer in the city of Nara that have learned to bow their heads to tourists in order to get food, but did you know that they also obey the law and know how to cross the road properly?
