Wildlife Reserves Singapore, or WRS, has appealed to the public for better behavior after a video of a teen trespassing a rhino exhibit circulated online.

The operator of the biggest animal exhibits in Singapore said today that it was aware of a recent TikTok video showing a teen trespass into the Singapore Zoo’s white rhino exhibit and discouraged copycats.

“We are aware of a social video that is circulating online which shows a visitor trespassing and encroaching into the space of our white rhino exhibit,” it said in a statement about the video posted to TikTok by “Ralph Wee.”

“This is a reckless and mindless act which is socially irresponsible, extremely dangerous and simply disrespectful to wildlife and our animals. We appeal to the sensibilities of the social community out there – let’s not encourage copycat acts – this can put lives in danger,” it added.

The 13-second clip opens with Wee pointing to the stickers spelling out: “What’s Ralph thinking about” then cuts to him rushing into the animals’ enclosure to do a backflip in front of two white rhinos. He then jumps back out through the logs and barriers enclosing their habitat. It is not known when the video was taken.

“Who’s man is this,” the caption reads as nonsensically as the stunt it describes.

Neither WRS and Wee had not responded to Coconut’s messages seeking comment as of publication time.
