The Chiang Mai Zoo, which opened its doors yesterday, is attempting to drive traffic through their doors with a number of activities, events and gimmicks lined up over the next month.

The latest is Tiger, the eight year old red panda which was asked to pick the winning team tonight when Germany plays France in the UEFA Euro 2020.

Zoo staff left out two trays of food, each with a national flag jutting out of it, and allowed Tiger to choose which dish it would like to eat. Without hesitation, said zoo authorities, Tiger went and polished off his entire tray of German flagged food in five minutes.

In spite of Thailand’s ban on gambling, the director of the zoo said that zoo animals will be picking winning teams throughout the tournament.
