Wow, this woman is supposed to be the representative of Seaworld and Busch Gardens. Watch what happens to the poor animal. She is so fired! This is the article;
During a segment on endangered animals on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC), a Swift Fox makes a break for it and narrowly avoids leaping on anchor Matt Lauer.
As Julie Scardina, the Animal Ambassador for Seaworld and Busch Gardens, attempts to pass the animal off to a handler, it tries to jump to the floor and misses Lauer by inches.
"I thought he was coming for my throat," Lauer said. But, don't worry, Lauer fans. [Are there actually any?] The anchor doesn't seem to have been in any real danger; it appears the animal was simply trying to escape.
