    Meerkats, lions fail to pick winner of World Cup final


    by PressTV

    Meerkats and lions at Germany's Erfurt zoo have failed to pick a clear winner for the World Cup final between Germany and Argentina.

    In an attempt to predict the outcome of the upcoming awaited match, two footballs representing the teams were placed in the meerkats' outdoor enclosure. The gang of meerkats was quick to run up to the Germany ball, completely ignoring the Argentina one. When the exercise was repeated in the animals' indoor enclosure, the meerkats instead picked the Argentina football and gave the Germany one a miss. The meerkats' much bigger neighbours - the lions - were also given a chance to pick a winner, but they didn't seem to be able to make up their minds either.
