Do you think the zoo should alter the ape cage?
No. Do you want to go back to concrete block cells with iron bars for containment.

 

 

Nope, I don't think we should cage animals for our entertainment.

 

Seems the cops are investigating the parents.  What law could they possibly have broken?  Are children required to be tethered at the zoo?

Is it just me or is the Donals awfully defensive and testy when things don't go his way?  And this guy wants to be the president?  Press conferences will turn into whine sessions when he gets his feelings hurt, poor baby.

it's you. I thought he was having fun and everything did go his way. He raised 5.6 million the press implied he was exaggerating as per the dem talking points. He proved they were the ones making false charges. I see nothing wrong with the press going after him. I just wish they would show the same aggressive reporting with Hillary and all fund raisers starting with the Clinton foundation. I wonder what they give vs what they take in in donations.

 

 

Not my take.  I thought he came across as a whiny bitch.  If he thinks this will help his campaign, watch how the fawning press turns on him.  Gloves are off.  They have no reason to not dig deeply into everything he has said in his life, including the rape of Ivana.

 

You know the RNC is not happy with it.

San Francisco zoo had a tiger enclosure that worked well for something like 15 years.
 
Until some kid was throwing rocks at one of the tigers.  When folks weren't looking the tiger jumped vertically 15 feet, and hunted that kid and his friend down.  The tiger got the friend first. Story was the friend got the idiot to stop throwing the rocks. The tiger was picky too, it passed on other humans, looking for that one pair.
 
Cops shot the tiger.
 
So - should the zoo be liable? It was the stupid teen that caused it.

 
I think so.  The zoo engineered that cage to allow the public to throw rocks at the defenseless animals.  When you become the custodians of God's creatures, you have a high degree of responsibility that goes with it.
 
 
Agreed, I wonder if TMSail can bring himself to agree with a couple "libs"
I agree with a suit in this case. Because the tiger escaped the containment and the cage did not meet federal standards. Not so with the gorilla. The kid deliberately climbed in. I like seeing an unobstructed view. We have a similar set up at tropic world at Brookfield Zoo. Completely blame the mother. My kid repeatedly states he wants to go in the water with the gorillas and I'm holding his hand until we leave the danger zone. Kids do not become aggressive climbers overnight. The mom had to know her child's tendencies.

Personally I thinking tiger story pretty cool. Not that anyone died but the fact that the tiger hunted down its tormentors. Karma is a bitch

Absolutely.  Play with the bull, get the horn.
