The Tregembo zoo has had it's issues in the past. As I remember, they have had animals stolen from there. Someone on another occasion broke in and severely abused some animals. Sure...they "think" it wouldn't happen, but thier "thinking" wasn't able to prevent any of the other reckless situations from happenening! Sorry, I don't buy it and frankly they just don't come off as looking like the most intelligent bunch running that place.
As for all of the "armchair animal rescuers" out there criticizing how that zoo escape was handled, IF you knew anything about lions, tigers and bears...and ...IF you knew anything about wild animal sedation, you would realize that killing those animals was the only possible way to protect the general public and their children from a very real disaster of being mauled to death by very powerful, scared, disoriented and desperate animals. I would never want to see any animals senslessly killed, but not every situation of this magnitude can carry a fairy tale conclusion!
