French family almost gets Darwin award after getting out of car in safari park
A French Family came dangerously close to receiving this years Darwin Award. In case you are unfamiliar with the award it is a tongue in cheek award originating in Usenet newspaper around 1985. They recognize individuals who have supposedly contributed to human evolution by selecting themselves out of the gene pool via death or sterilization by their actions. In simpler words natures way of getting rid of stupid people.
Now back to the French family. They were visiting a Dutch Safari park and something in their very stupid brains told them it would be a great idea to get out and take pictures of the cheetahs. Now understand this was a drive through park where the cheetahs roam free.
Beekse Bergen is a drive-through African wildlife safari park, in the south of the Netherlands, where visitors are under strict instruction not to leave their cars.
The family also included a young child the mom can be seen picking up the child and shooing off a cheetah. So the mother almost gave the child a Darwin Award before it is even known if he is stupid. The cheetahs are the fastest animal on the planet. And the family is very lucky that they were not hungry.
The video was taken by a Dutch family behind the stupid family and they could not believe what they were seeing. The family was able to get back to their car and escape the curious perhaps angry cheetahs and avoid the Darwin award, for now.
A spokesman for the Beekse Bergen Safari Park said they make it very clear that it is unsafe to get out of your car at the park.
