Animals Gone Wild At The Zoo!

bear 2014 004What kind of a zoo could possibly have conditions exist where those attending the zoo are killed or mauled?  This particular zoo is found on the West Bank in Palestinian territory.  Where are the zookeepers, and why are the animals not kept at a safe distance?  Evidently safety precautions are not that important in some parts of the world.

Recently a bear bit off and ate the arm of a 9-year-old boy who tried to feed it during a school visit to a zoo. You mean he could actually stick his hand through the bars to feed this obviously hungry bear?  What a shame! Police said the Palestinian lad lost his arm at the elbow when he was attacked in the West Bank town of Qalqilya.The bear then devoured his limb.

The victim was being treated at a local hospital for his horrific injuries.Currently home to around 170 animals, the zoo is the only one of its kind in the West Bank and was built in 1986.

In January a tourist was mauled to death by three tigers in front of his wife and child, stunned witnesses have reported.Chinese media claims the father died after he entered the enclosure and walked towards the hungry cats as they were feeding – one tiger was shot and killed during the drama.Horrendous footage shows the visitor writhing in agony on the floor as the three animals bite and claw his body with their massive paws.
