“There was this big cat like a leopard, a majestic creature. And then it was feeding time they threw out a bunny. It was a dead bunny. But it was a show and this leopard just went in and blood is going everywhere. And she’s very romantic, and she’s standing in front of me and I can tell she is really unsettled by it. I said it’s cool; we are going to keep going but in that moment I said there’s a connection and in that moment thanks to that poor rabbit; I found love.” He said.
