While I am on the topic of wild animals.....has anyone checked the height of the moat wall in the tiger exhibit at the zoo. I was there for the first time last year and remember walking up to it and stopping dead in my tracks because it looked all the world like the tigers were loose. Until I saw people walking closer and taking pictures, then I realized that there was a moat between us and them.
When I was on holiday last Christmas in Disneyland we heard a lot about the Tiger in the zoo in California that jumped out of its area and killed the fellow.
I am just wondering, because they have said that the wall at the zoo there was not tall enough. And apparently tigers do jump...and quite far.

At the calgary zoo they have a very tall fence with a heavy glass window between you and the preditors.

The zoo in Detroit is spectacular. I just don't want to be some one's lunch: in the wild or in the zoo, lol.

Don't tease them. If someone else is, call security.

When that story broke about the death in California, it seems I can remember the local news doing a story about the Detroit zoo. If I remember correctly, the tiger habitat at the Detroit zoo exceeds the the guidelines for safety.
