So I don’t usually comment about things very often, but this whole bear bite thing has really got me upset.
Even though the bear isn’t going to be euthanized, now the activist, or whatever, are going to try to step in and they’ll try to maybe shut the zoo down. It’s all we really have left – they’re shutting everything down.
If the mother or father were paying closer attention to their toddler, these kinds of things shouldn’t happen and they should be going after them.
I’ve been a vet technician for 17 years and I have yet to see a wild animal bite happen without some kind of human stupidity.
I really hope that this doesn’t hurt the zoo, because we’re running out of things to take our kids to see.
I don’t believe it’s the staff’s fault.
I believe it’s the family stupidity.
And I hope that the family whose child got bit has this as a learning curve to not leave their child unattended.
My heart goes out to the zoo staff.
and I’m very happy that that the bear will not be euthanized. He’s already trapped in a cage, how much crappier can it be?
That’s my rant.
