The Lehe Ledu Wildlife Zoo in Chongqing, China is challenging the idea of what makes a zoo. In fact, it's really less of a zoo and more of a safari experience. Here, people pay to be caged while animals roam freely through the grounds. Patrons ride in the back of a van that has raw meat tied to it to lure in apex predators like lions and tigers. Once the animals are chewing meat from the cages, some visitors get the opportunity to hand-feed them with more raw meat or a even dead animal.
