There are tons of nature reality shows out there.
And nature is unpredictable, and reality TV is super fake most of the time, so of course it'd make sense not every wild animal encounter on TV was actually that random, or wild.
Like on Animal Planet's show Call of the Wildman there are some disturbing reports claiming that the rescued animals are not only planted there by subcontracted handlers, drugs have even been used on them!
That's right, drugging animals just so they can be on TV easier!

We already knew Lily Allen was in Africa shooting new video for Air Balloon, but now we're really intrigued.
The English recording artist and actress posted an amazing picture of her sitting on top of a zebra, writing:

Wow this is so crazy and pretty sad!!
A veteran zookeeper was attacked and bitten several times by a zebra at the National Zoo a few days ago.
The zookeeper was okay, but bleeding pretty badly (check out the blood covered zebra above, the red stain on his shoulders). The attack must've been intense.
All the commotion must've scared a young gazelle in an adjoining enclosure because he ran away super fast, sprinting headfirst into

Damn! Look at those wild ass foals!
Those are some wild ass Wild Asses!
They look like donkey-zebras (zonkeys? debras?) and they're just so stinkin' cute!
Five Somali Wild Ass foals were born at the Saint Louis Zoo and they're extra special because these wild ass Wild Asses are endangered!
They are from the desert areas of Eritrea, Ethiopia and Somalia with less than 1,000 living in the wild (ass)!
So every single one of these little asses is not only super cute, but also super important for the survival of their species.
Who here likes cute asses? Who wants to watch them jump and jiggle around??
Check out the video (above) to see some asses shaking at the Saint Louis Zoo!

Awww! Look at that little cutie prancing around!
A healthy baby Okapi calf was born at Dallas Zoo back on August 14th.
The little babe was named Almasi and though born weighing only 47-pounds, she's now up to 190-pounds!!
Just this past weekend she finally made her debut at the zoo's outdoor Okapi habitat.
The vice president of animal operations and welfare at the Dallas Zoo said:
"Almasi’s birth is another major success in efforts to ensure that this incredible animal species survives. The Dallas Zoo has a long history of caring for and learning about Okapi, and we will continue to be a leader in the fight to educate the world to protect these animals."
That's so ahmayzing! Way to help the species out, Dallas Zoo!
Check out the video (above) to see this cutie shake her zebra butt!

Ever since his initial Home Alone fame started to die down, Macaulay Culkin sightings have been a relatively rare experience.
So it's pretty darn random that he popped up down in Mexico… Tijuana specifically.
We wouldn't believe it if it weren't for the photographic proof… Macaulay Culkin participated in a donkey show!
Now before you start throwing up, it wasn't that kind of donkey show.
He was partying down in TJ with
