    Default Bears eat monkey at Zoo

    http://www.cnn.com/2006/WORLD/europe....ap/index.html

    Visitors reported that the grisly scene began as several bears chased the monkey, a macaque, onto a wooden structure at Beekse Bergen Safari Park.

    They said a bear tried unsuccessfully to shake the monkey loose, ignoring attempts by keepers to distract it. The bear then climbed up and grabbed the monkey, mauling it to death and bringing it to its concrete den, where three bears ate it.

    The park confirmed the killing. "The habitats here in the safari park are arranged in such a way that one animal almost never kills another, but they are and remain wild animals," it said in a statement.

    The attack occurred in an area of the zoo that contains both monkeys and sloth bears, a type of black bear found in the Asian subcontinent.

    The park said it plans now to move the macaques to another part of the park.

    Oh no, I really hope there were no children with the visitors, seeing that would traumatise them for life.

    I feel really sad now

    I remember my Mum saying that she went to a zoo with my Dad on their first date and there was a monkey cage covered in blood and guts. Apparently some bigger, vicious monkeys had broke into their neighbouring cage that had little shy monkeys in and killed them all

    Sorry, don't take this personally, or maybe do. But I'm putting you on ignore. Really cannot be bothered, have the time or inclination to read all the random crap you post everywhere.

    Those were jokes, with according smilies to identify them.
    When I laughingly remarked how "bad" we were being to you, you said "It's OK". So if you had felt really bullied and had thought the place to be unfriendly, you should have said it right away.

    Okey, but I really don't care. ppl can say whatever they want, it's their right, but they are not always right.

    You should probably consider that when telling everyone else how 'wrong' they are!
