Calgary Zoo Feeling Economic Pressure
FEBRUARY 2, 2009
Lanthier, a veterinarian and walrus researcher who took the helm in Calgary two years ago, says the cancellation of the polar bears exhibit might please some animal-rights extremists, but the reality is a blow to Canada's white bears. They had to cancel a big project that would have showcased polar bears and seals. But don't feel too bad for them. Dr. Clement Lanthier, Calgary Zoo president and CEO (is this a corporation??) sounds like a real jerk.
