Big cats at Rome zoo beat the heat with giant frozen meat treats8/25/2012
What better way to chill on a hot summer day than with a delicious frozen meat treat? Concerned about the comfort and well-being of their big cats during a recent record heat wave, keepers at Italy's Bioparco di Roma zoo in Italy prepared giant frozen cubes made from a mixture of water and meat. The tigers, lions and leopards reportedly took to the meatsicles like kids to ice cream, spending hours happily licking the refreshingly tasty (if you're into that kind of thing) treats and staving off heatstroke and dehydration. Talk about cool cats. [Source]
