Toddler Miraculously Released Unharmed After Being Lifted by Giraffe During Wildlife Drive-Through

A family’s drive-through safari experience at Fossil Rim Wildlife Center in Texas took an unexpected turn when a giraffe picked up their 2-year-old daughter, Paisley Toten, by her shirt and lifted her into the air. The incident, captured on video, left the family shaken but grateful that Paisley was released unharmed.

According to Jason Toten, Paisley’s father, they were feeding the giraffes when the incident occurred. They followed the center’s safety guidelines, which allow only giraffes to be hand-fed.

Fossil Rim Wildlife Center emphasizes the importance of following safety protocols during drive-through experiences. The website states that visitors should only feed giraffes and maintain a safe distance from other animals.

The incident serves as a reminder of the importance of respecting wildlife and adhering to safety guidelines when interacting with animals in their natural habitats.
