Perhaps the zoo keepers could have intervened. In human society if you kidnap and rape, you go to jail. So give the baboons a trial and put those found guilty in a cage. Then again, maybe that won't be a good idea. They would get out and do it again, and kill everyone the next time. And the ones in the cage might get sexually restless, and you know the rest. One monkey is cleaning itself in the cage, bends over to pick up something... So bad idea.

I think this one did the right thing. But it is almost that way with humans where you get executed for defending your family. I hated the story were some teens provoked a big cat, the cat got out, and it was put down. It seems they shot the wrong one. The 2-legged "cats" are the worst kind sometimes. If I remember right, he was wanting to sue for injuries sustained while trespassing in a closed zoo. That was all while on probation for drunk driving or something.

How many other countries have big zoos to entertain people the way we do? We don't have to go to other countries to see what they have, we can spend thousands to bring their animals here, spend thousands more to keep their environment like their home away from home, just for entertainment.

Shame, really.
As I've gotten older, these kind of events have had much more of a saddening effect on me.
Think Im becoming one of those weirdos that care more about animals than people.
Won't try to rationalize it: Suffice to say, it's how I feel...
