This short starts off funny but soon gets rather disturbing.

I don’t want to label Ron The Zookeeper as a bad short because it isn’t. I really enjoyed the style… which I think is claymation (correct me if I’m wrong) and its strewn with humour but there is something about a rugged looking man tossing off an animal which, though not real and done in a comedic manner, just didn’t stop being a little too disturbing. Some people may love this ‘boundary’ pushing humour but I guess I still have some limits. That being said, I do think that you should watch it and tell me what you think.
