CINCINNATI- “Jurassic World” smashed box-office records over the weekend, but a particular scene has captured the imaginations of zookeepers around the globe.
Chris Pratt, of “Parks and Recreation” and “Guardians of the Galaxy,” stars as a Navy-veteran-turned-dinosaur-trainer. His character, Owen Grady, is the alpha to a pack of velociraptors, keeping them at bay.
The staff at the Cincinnati Zoo did their best Pratt impressions on Thursday with a few not-so-fearsome beasts, like a box turtle and Moe the sloth.
But the folks in Cincinnati didn’t start the tread. Over the last few days, other zoos and aquariums have tried Pratt’s approach to taming animals.
