Taunting Wild Animals: A Natural, Unfortunate Psychological Desire in People
Clear back to our ancients--the feeling and thrill of hunting the wild beast out in the wild was probably one of the most natural highs of living. While we have to admit it's a part of our ancestral DNA--we have to learn how to control ourselves, too...
As unfortunate as it is, we've probably been to our own local zoos on more than one occasion and seen a group of kids trying to rile one of the wild animals who appear to be safely behind a glass or barred cage. While it may not be defined per se as taunting--kids like to have fun with some of the animals to see what the animal's reactions may be. Many of the wild monkeys and other primates zoos have react in silly ways to people who try to get them to react. That usually involves kids making funny faces at them or some other silly antic--with the assumption the primate will be amused by it and do a silly face in return. But how do we know what they're really thinking? I was at an Oregon zoo once that featured a wild Rhesus Macaque monkey who just happened to get vicious if you stared at him too intensely. In the regions of Afghanistan and northern India where they originate--perhaps a stare from what they think is a fellow primate might be considered a threat.
I was just glad a cage was there--because that Rhesus Macaque would have probably gone for the jugular had it managed to get free. Nevertheless, as a kid, I was never one to deliberately get animals at the zoo riled up. Maybe some of the school group field trips I took to the zoo were fortunate when the truly wild beasts (lions and tigers) were sound asleep in their human-created habitats to even care anybody was there to look at them. Since we can't analyze people on the spot, what makes any person standing nearby trying to get a rise out of one of those animals might be said to start at home somewhere and obviously in childhood. Perhaps playing with the family cat as a kid was a start to this possible psychological condition that compels people to "play" with an animal that could potentially bite or scratch. Pulling back just in time before getting scratched (or an eye taken out) probably creates that mentally unstable sense of risky thrill.
Those who work in the circuses may have that sense of hidden thrill...
So many circuses have been chastised for their treatment of animals behind the scenes--especially those who train and work with the tigers in one of the most popular acts within the touring circuses working today. A lot of those trainers have been accused of being abusive to the tigers, too, which have been both proved and not. But anybody who spends time training wild animals and sticking their head inside the mouth of one has to obviously be a little bit beyond normal. A lot of these types of people consider taming the wild beast to be the ultimate accomplishment--whether that be in reality or just in a metaphorical sense. I think it was the legendary actor Richard Burton who once said that he considered an audience to be akin to taming a wild tiger. Once you do--it's supposed to give you this phenomenal sense of control as Burton was known for on the stage.
People in that state of mind don't bother to think of the consequences in case they can't tame the wild beast. Because tigers are so mercurial, you can't always judge what's going to happen next. The most tragic case, as we all know, is in Roy Horn from Siegfield amp; Roy. They both thought they'd tamed their collection of tigers to the point of being able to interact with them in ways that seemed to be symbiotic. In reality, one little thing was misunderstood by one of the tigers (reportedly a little swat on the nose) who then ultimately mauled Roy to near-death.
While animal activists try to get wild animals out of the circuses, magic shows (and zoos)--it might give more credence to more careful investigations on what's really going on when the public goes home. The San Francisco Zoo obviously underestimated what a wild tiger can do when it's provoked by something as expected as rambunctious kids. All of that gives indications that nobody really understands wild tigers to the nth degree and how or when they might do something to put guests in danger. Plus, it's not just wild tigers but other animals unexpectedly turning on a dime in recent years--probably from years of being uncomfortable in their surroundings. It starts to make you listen up when animal activists say wild animals just can't truly adapt to a man-made environment.
Going back to the wild where the thrill of the hunt still exists...
Clear back to our ancients--the feeling and thrill of hunting the wild beast out in the wild was probably one of the most natural highs of living. While we have to admit it's a part of our ancestral DNA--we have to learn how to control ourselves, too. That sense of danger is always there in us, though, and you'll likely continue to see people get the urge to taunt a wild animal as they would with a toy for their playful family cat or dog...and getting a few playful bites or scratches in the process. There's a lot of evidence in a mutual peaceful understanding with us and animals domesticated--but people still think that it's an inherent understanding for even wild animals. If only we could find some way of bridging the gap through more research.
We'll have to keep in mind, too, that a zoo is probably like being in the wild rather than a safety zone. From the San Francisco Zoo incident--we can't assume any more that you're visiting in a giant bubble that automatically protects you from potential threats from any of the animals. It's a shame, really, when zoos are generally some of the most fun family-friendly environments around. And most of the animals have a peaceful life with people touching them and interacting with them.
Perhaps the mystery can be explained in wild animals having a radar to who has that natural urge to have the thrill of the hunt and who doesn't. When they detect who has it--they do anything possible to prove who has the upper hand over previous thrill-seekers who won out.
