I was really hoping that video didn't come to some horrible conclusion like some of the crap that is out there on the web.
I was watching the clock...going ...ok...5 seconds to go and we're in the clear.

I thought the parents' comments were a nice touch.  Especially the Dad's salt comment.

I remember going to the San Antonio zoo and watching the big cats watch the little kids.  It was obvious they were thinking "lunch!"

The video folks were completely oblivious to the hazard they were in. Either cat could have lunged through the window. Guess they were more curious than hungry.
