The only thing to fear is not just fear itself.

A zookeeper at the Out of Africa Wilidlife Park at Arizona's Camp Verde elected not to heed his own advice when he screamed in terror while dealing with a lion immediately after he told his audience that it's important to never show fear when dealing with lions.

It's pretty funny and an example of perfect timing. But is it too perfect? Do you think his line about not showing fear followed by his innate reaction to shriek like a little girl was real or was it staged for his show merely to get a laugh out of the crowd on hand? It's hard to think a seasoned pro would lose his cool like this, especially considering the fact the lion was behind a fence.

Something stinks here and we're saying it's not the droppings left after scarfing down a half-dozen steaks.
