Re: Outside the Lines Chat Thread ~ February 2017

A 7-year old boy pushed his hand through the wire net at Ähtäri zoo, got bitten by a wolf and now people are even more hysterical about any wolf than usually. (I got my fingers licked through the fence in 1990s by a friendly wolf who remembered me well because at that time I visited the zoo two or three times a year.)

Meanwhile in northern Norway...

Heikki, I just wonder, how did zoo staff allowed the beast to come so close to wire and child also (esp. child)? Don't they have a water-gangs?

I've understood that the boy strayed to a staff-only area and/or climbed over the outer wooden fence and found just the place where he could put his hand through the net. There are no water-filled moats in this zoo - 99.99 % of visitors know that any animal can bite but there are always some parents who set no limits to their spoiled brats.

This is a newspaper photo taken at a staff-only area:

2 years ago there was a child here in Brazil that stuck his arm inside a tiger's cage... he lost the arm. And the father was FILMING IT!

Guys, that's terrible! I don't mean we sholdn't talk about it. I have 1,5 year son, and I will have to explain him v.many things. Think, we start to understand our parents only when we have our own children
