Taunting zoo animals shouldn't get you dead...
When I woke up this morning it was all over the news that the guys that were attacked by a tiger at the San Francisco Zoo taunted the tiger prior to the attack.
I will say that taunting any wild animal probably isn't a good idea, but it shouldn't get you killed when you visit the local zoo. The news report said the men were drinking and smoking pot, again, this shouldn't get you killed at the zoo.
It shouldn't matter what you do at the zoo when it comes to animal attacks. If they did anything short of climbing in the cage with the animal nothing worse than getting kicked out of the park should have happened to them.
It just pisses me off that people are trying to deflect blame for this to the people that were attacked. The fault lies with the zoo and only with the zoo. It's their responsibility to secure these animals and make sure they can't have you for lunch.
Besides, I don't like cats!
Oh yeah, one more story caught my ear this morning...it seems that a song called "Temperature" by an artist named Shawn Paul caused seizures in a woman whenever she listened to it....that crap causes me to go into something similar to a seizure also...when I hear it on a radio I move as fast as I can to change the station...someone that didn't know any better seeing me do this might think I was having a seizure also!
Have a nice day!
