  • Lion escapes from Tobe zoo, Japan.

    A Japanese zoo has gained global attention for a training drill designed to prepare staff for dealing with an escaped lion.

    “I think this is horrible and inexplicable,” Weyts told state broadcaster VRT. “I don’t understand why more attempts were not made to sedate the animal,” he added.

    Animal rights group Gaia said the attempts to put the animal back into its enclosure smacked of a “cowboy mentality” by the zoo and police.
    This is funny though :

    "I really need to see their 'escape drill' for a zebra," one Twitter user wrote.

            Iceland's
            Bear Necessities :

            After the 2008 polar bear incidents, a committee was appointed to make recommendations as to how authorities should react in the event of a polar bear coming to shore in Iceland. The committee reached the conclusion that it would be best to kill such animals, citing the following grounds for doing so: (1) the safety of humans and livestock, (2) the large polar bear population in the area from which polar bears are most likely to come (NE-Greenland) and (3) the high cost of transporting the animals back to their natural habitat. From an animal protection perspective, a fourth factor might be added to the picture – i.e., whether the animals are in poor or good condition upon their arrival. From this perspective, one might well ask whether authorities' first reaction shouldn't be tranquilise animals in order to assess their condition before making the decision to put them down or not. Wildlife protection and conservation associations abroad would likely be willing to bear the costs of transporting the animals back to their natural habitat. Iceland would then at least be making an attempt to help protect the species.....
