I watch lots of youtube videos on Lions and Tigers and nothing prepared me for how immense and powerful looking they look up-close when I saw them at the Bronx zoo. it's night and day.
I like the zoo because they have many conservation efforts for many of the species they have on exhibit.

they could have used fire extinguishers like they did with the Tiger at the Bronx zoo last month to scare the animals away. terrible all around.

you didn't understand the situation, the dynamics of eating cat shit. maybe, I don't know, you should have asked the cat.

not really equating the two things, but it is tragic that the dog (an endangered species) had to be killed.
