BBC Reporter Hilariously Gets Mobbed by Lemurs

I get the feeling that being mobbed by lemurs might not have been what this reporter was expecting when he went to work today, but it happened anyway. Whether he was feeding them, which seems likely, or they were just extremely excited, which also seems likely, they didn’t hesitate to mob the poor fellow as they continued to jump back and forth. A couple of them even seemed to nip him a couple of times as they were probably looking for food. It didn’t seem like they were all that aggressive though so it could be that they were just playing around as it looks like and got a little too excited.

Some reporters that go out in the field live for this stuff while others would like nothing than an anchor position or a desk job where they wouldn’t have to interact with anyone or anything. I can see how a person might find field work a bit daunting at times but this almost seems like it would be fun.  The lemurs are a bit bigger than I thought they were but they seem mostly harmless and just very high-spirited, as you can see from their jumping and constantly climbing him. At one point you can barely see him for the number of lemurs that are hanging on, perhaps hoping for a treat.

Personally I think this would be a fun part of the job so long as you’re working with animals that aren’t known to be mean or aggressive. Obviously anything can get mean and aggressive if you give them them the chance, but at that point it would be time to simply stop the broadcast and try again later or find something else to do. Lemurs don’t seem like they’d be all that tough or really prone to being overly aggressive but I suppose they might be kind of irritating if they just won’t stop. He doesn’t seem to mind at least since he’s willing to stand in the middle of them a they’re jumping about and climbing him like he’s a jungle gym. This kind of job seems like it would lend itself to certain abuses and yet you see a large number of reporters that go out time and time again to deliver the news in a variety of ways that makes it look as though they’re having a good time or would rather be anywhere else.

It could be worse, right? I mean there are reporters that get splashed because they stand next to huge puddles and some jerk driving by thinks it would be funny to douse them. Then there are those reporters that don’t seem to think ahead when they’re near a coastal area and somehow don’t understand that a tide can come in very quickly.  Reporters in the field don’t have an all-around easy job at times but a lot of them at least know the risks when they step outside and get down to business. This guy at least had an idea of what he was in for.
