Deciding which team to put down some money on for the Big Game? Perhaps heed the prediction from a Big Cat.

Kijani, Fresno Chaffee Zoo’s resident lion, chose San Francisco as Sunday’s victors.

With two bloody bones inside boxes bearing the logos of both the 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs, Kijani went right for the local team, which Zoo Mammal Keeper Misha Brown claims wasn’t a setup.

Kijani’s prognostications have been right before; he correctly chose the Philadelphia Eagles over the New England Patriots in 2018.
