Questionable Practices at the Calgary Zoo

Critter News

Another animal dies at the Calgary Zoo and more questions are being raised about their practices. Incidents include a hippo who died in transport from Denver and a Turkmenian markhor, a species of wild goat, hung itself at the zoo after becoming trapped by a rope. Look at all these incidents that have occurred there (listed in the Montreal Gazette article in the above link).I I don't track zoos, but this seems like an unusually high number of casualties.
