Why do people have to stand so far back to make animals look bigger? That's the same as lying and it is freaking annoying.

Looks like if the cop wore his binos around his neck, they would hit him in the junk.

Its a crazy thought but the police officer may have just been standing there when the pic was taken and they arent trying to make it look big.
