Questionable Practices at the Calgary Zoo
DECEMBER 12, 2009
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. Another animal dies at the Calgary Zoo and more questions are being raised about their practices. 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.
