A Harley biker was riding by the zoo in Washington, DC when he saw a little girl leaning into the lion’s cage.
Suddenly, the lion grabbed her by the cuff of her jacket and tried to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents.
The biker jumped off his Harley, ran to the cage and hit the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch.
Whimpering from the pain the lion jumped back letting go of the girl, and the biker brought her to her terrified parents, who thanked him endlessly.
A reporter had watched the whole event. The reporter, addressing the Harley rider, said, ‘Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I’ve seen a man do in my whole life.’
The Harley rider replied, ‘Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger and acted as I felt right.’
The reporter said, ‘Well, I’ll make sure this won’t go unnoticed. I’m a journalist, and tomorrow’s paper will have this story on the front page. So, what do you do for a living and what political affiliation do you have?”
The biker replied, ‘I’m a U.S. Marine and a Republican.’
The journalist left.
