She has to die to get the award.


EDIT: I'm sure this idiot will sue the zoo.

Screw that!

Barriers are in place for a freaking reason. I'm sure they would have signage to indicate NOT to cross the barrier for your own safety. Instead of sending prayers to this woman they should send her a dictionary so she can look up the words on the sign.

All that aside the jaguar doesn't belong in a damn zoo to begin with.

I’m for electrifying the human side of the fence. In fairness, we’d be disappointed if a big cat didn’t have a go when it got the chance. They’re fascinating to us partly because they are so dangerous. One zoo worker told me that the jaguars were the most unpredictable of the lot.

Make the human visitors travel about in cages, let the animals roam free.

Jurassic World...

And how it was filmed...

The fictional "hamster ball" was supposed to be made of aluminum oxynitride glass. That's a real material and very strong, but very expensive to make. The prop had no transparent ball enclosure at all, it was computer graphics. But, could you do something like that with acrylic? Rather than a ball, just a go-cart with acrylic cab?

I wanna say "play stupid games, win stupid prizes". But I'll go with every Zoo is a petting zoo, unless your a pussy. She was not a pussy, until she was mauled by the 200lbs Jaguar.

You know how much damage an angry 6 lbs cat can do to you?

Now imagine if that cat is 200 lbs. 8O

There's only about 15k of these critters left in the wild. The zoos are necessary to preserve the species.

I guess what I'd want is to see the animal not in a cage but in a more natural enclosure with a few acres for it to roam around.

You could, but acrylic is heavy and scratches easy, and shatters spectacularly. Polycarbonate is harder to work, but also more scratch resistant, and cracks rather than shatters.

Zoos do not to preserve species. A cage is still a cage. Charging admission doesn't change the cage.

Natural protected environments are the way to protect species. And more than one species at a time too!

Perhaps bounties for poachers are the way to go. :twisted:
