I gotta just shake my head at this stuff. The walls and fences are there for a reason, people!http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_new s/2012/11/04/14922258-boy-fall s-into-pittsburgh-zoo-exhibit- mauled-to-death-by-african-pai nted-dogs?lite
Seriously, I cringe every time I see some small kid teetering on the edge of one of these enclosures. Do people just think they're invincible since it's a zoo?
And yes, I think people assume that because the animals are in a zoo they're somehow less dangerous. They think the same thing at national parks, where idiots think it's ok to smear jelly on their kids' faces to take pictures while the bears lick it off or get upset when their car is damaged because they got too close to the rutting buffalo. <more head shaking>
