So I’m sure everyone remembers the tragedy last year at the zoo.
You know when the mom held her toddler up on a fence and he fell in and was mauled to death.
They are suing the zoo. They are claiming it’s the zoo’s fault the mother was irresponsible. Oh wait…I’m sorry…the wording is that the zoo had ample warning people held their children up to the fence.
Okay…so if your friend jumps off a bridge do you do it as well?
There are signs and barriers for a reason people. To keep you out of the enclosures!
I am in utter shock at the gall of this family. Yes their son died; however, it was 100% the MOTHER’S fault. Not the zoo’s.
What do these people want? The zoo shut down? To cash in on their son’s death? To have an employee walk around holding everyone’s hand saying no-no that’s dangerous?
I am loosing hope for humanity. What happened to taking responsibility for your own actions? When did what you do wrong become someone else’s problem?
I read an article a few weeks ago where a mother climbed over a barrier with her toddler, the toddler was mauled by a bobcat (survived), and that mother was arrested. This mother holds her child up, he falls and is mauled to death, and they SUE the ZOO??? Does anyone else find that completely ridiculous? In the over 100 years that the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium has been in existence this is the ONLY instance of someone being dumb enough to drop their child into an enclosure with wild animals. You have to think if hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people manage to walk through those gates and not die…it’s not the zoo.
I’ve gone to the zoo hundreds of times in my almost 28 years of life, dozens of times with my almost 5-year-old twins…wanna know something? We’re all alive. Wanna know why? We follow the rules. I don’t hold my children up on barriers for a better look. I know how to tell my child no when it would mean them possibly dying.
I’m by no means a perfect mother. We all make mistakes. The difference between the mistakes the average parent make and what this woman did is that our mistakes have not resulted in our children dying. Use your brain, folks! If it’s in the least bit dangerous…learn to tell your kid no. Then you won’t have to sue our f*cking zoo. Jagoffs.
