A spokesman said:"What happened Monday is really a one-time incident."Ummm, yeah. So far.
Stunned zookeepers say they have no idea why the bears attacked.Oooh, ooh, I know! It's because they're bears!
Dierenrijk Zoo management is not really helping the image of zoos around the world, in their reaction to this totally unavoidable incident.
"The animals are put together to challenge them like this to play with each other."WTAF?
"It's a piece of enrichment for the animal kingdom. The animals have always lived in good harmony with each other."Sure. Right up until the point that they don't. And then, because they are in an enclosed space, there's nowhere to flee.
"It's always gone well. We decided years ago to put the wolves and brown bears together. That's good for the animals and we also see no reason to break them up now."'Hey, look, we engineered the death of an animal through bad planning and starry-eyed ideas, but that's no reason we should change anything now, is it?'
I'm very glad these arrogant morons aren't in charge of something crucial, like an airline or nuclear power station.
