Zoo bans animal prints to stop confusing animals

Yes, it’s true. UK’s Chessington World of Adventures Resort has hired Animal Print Bouncers to shoo visitors away from entering its premises with animal prints on — or cover up the offensive attire with a grey boiler suit.

Apparently, ever since Chessington introduced a safari-style tour that lets visitors get close to the animals, its zookeepers have noticed wildlife acting puzzled when they come in contact with visitors spotting similar prints to theirs, or drawing back in fear when they encounter visitors sporting prints of predators. We guess this makes sense somewhat?
