I can't stand people like this. What a dufus. There was someone who helped pull her away after seeing the cat grab her. If I was a bystander I'm not sure if I would help her if I could. You can call me callous, but I'm allergic to stupidity, especially stupidity this extreme.

I'm glad the zoo isn't talking about destroying the animal.
Destroy it? I say double itís meal for that evening. Jesus sometimes I think people at zoos are on the wrong side of a cage.

Hope this will be a lesson for others....but it won`t.

This reminds me of one incident at a Zoo in India. One guy actually put his hand inside the cage with a camera to take close-up photograph of a leopard. Leopard jumped and removed the hand from body of that man. That guy died after 15-20 minutes on the way to hospital.

She probably won't sue given that she's apologized to the zoo and admitted her lax in good judgement.

No, My guess is she will do the talk show circuit, and make as much money she can, off of it.

Itís not just that. Many homeless shelters are known to have crime including sexual assaults and theft. Many people feel safer out on the street then in those shelters. I wish people would walk a mile in their shoes before judging them.
