KillerAttackParrot: Smelly Pirate Hooker: Why the fark do people not understand that safety warnings apply to them, too? It's not like a speed limit or some stupid rule that is annoying and seemingly designed only to give govt entities an excuse to fine you.It's an actual safety measure designed to keep you from dying. I've seen people prop their very young children on the railing at the zoo. Idiots.You know how many people are killed in zoos every year? You know how many are killed in auto collisions every year? Idiots.
mama2tnt: Really? No one has posted this yet?[scrapetv.com image 298x484]
almostsane: Lollipop165: monoski: R.A.Danny: Why haven't charges been pressed against the mother?ThisIf she didn't sue the zoo, I would say let her go without charges. Its a tragedy enough, and obviously a stupid (really, really really stupid) mistake. Taking personal responsibility for killing your own child is punishment enough.But now that's she's trying to shift blame onto the zoo... I saw make her pay. She's obviously learned nothing.Seconded
KillerAttackParrot: AngryDragon: An intelligent or wise person can make the distinction between a rule that has minor consequences (traffic fines) and one that can be deadly (dangling your child over hungry wild animals).Yeah, because heaven knows no ever gets hurt or killed in auto collisions. You realize how stupid that statement is? How is it that whenever you talk about driving people turn into blithering idiots without an inkling of rational thought?
Ego edo infantia cattus: If she gave a shiat about the kid, she would have jumped in and fought the dogs to her last breath. She may have even done that shiat on purpose. It would an easy way to turn a unwanted kid into a million bucks. She should charged with manslaughter, or at least reckless endangerment of a child.

And I can't imagine that a full investigation would turn up as much neglect on the zoo's part as there was on the mother's.
GreenSun: Easy Money:1. Pump out a crotch fruit.2. Go to a zoo.3. "Accidentally" get the kid killed by the animals.4. Cry and mourn and blame the zoo.5. Win the public's emotions.6. Sue the zoo "so that this tragedy will never happen again to another family".7. Profit from the degeneration of personal responsibility's importance in America.
Begoggle: Maddox died Nov. 4[blog.cassiopeia.ca image 400x314]A firetruck came to rescue him but it looked like this
Smoky Dragon Dish: pestluvr: R.A.Danny: Morsel. HAHAHAHA!!Really though, being a dad, this farking crushes me. He trusted his mommy, and I'm sure his last thought as he was being torn to shreds and in agonizing pain was "Mommy will fix this"....oh, that's OK, I really wanted to stay awake with my thoughts tonight.This too. :(
Rurouni: Not sure if this has been mentioned but this is some biased pandering scumbag journalism too. Notice the wording of the title of the article. "...zoo blames mother for boy's fatal mauling." Not "mother is suing zoo for son's death, etc".
groppet: She must be related to the two dumb dumbs that used that slingshot on a tiger at that zoo in San Francisco last year.
NotARocketScientist: The zoo should put up a sign that says "Do Not Drop Your Children into Animal Enclosures" so that people like her are fully warned....
R.A.Danny: Don't get me wrong, she most likely was just really REALLY stupid, and is heartbroken that her stupidity resulted in the death of her kid. It's damn sad. She really needs to be taken out of society if she is in fact that stupid though.
gaslight: Dumb question: why wasn't this person arrested for endangerment causing death?
jshine: Guns n' Farkin Roses: I don't want to come off all "Internet Tough Guy" but how does she or someone else not jump in right away and start wrecking shop on these dogs until help comes? At least pickup the kid and start screaming at them hysterically, maybe kick a few of them in the gunt.Depending on the drop, the fall might have incapacitated her immediately, in which case the gesture would have accomplished exactly nothing. Fighting dogs is one thing -- maybe heroic -- but fighting gravity is just plain dumb.
itsaidwhat: R.A.Danny: Why haven't charges been pressed against the mother?That's the missing piece. Child endangerment. She should be charged with that crime. Or at least dingo fishing without a license.
R.A.Danny: Morsel. HAHAHAHA!!Really though, being a dad, this farking crushes me. He trusted his mommy, and I'm sure his last thought as he was being torn to shreds and in agonizing pain was "Mommy will fix this".
bborchar: grimlock1972: R.A.Danny: Why haven't charges been pressed against the mother?They would have to prove she deliberately dropped the kid and that is not an easy thing to do.It doesn't have to be murder. There are other charges such as child endangerment and even criminally negligent homocide.
TheDumbBlonde: People that name their children other people's surnames deserve to have their babies eaten by dingos.
onzmadi: It is people like this waste of oxygen that we lose things like zoos. Its tragic the boy? died but using this as an opportunity for a payday is just beyond awful. I hope the mother gets Lou Gehrig's disease.
albuquerquehalsey: [www.gamechangers.com image 513x563]Damn thats a pretty dog. Shame that if you bread them for tameness, they would probably lose their marking like those foxes in Russia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domesticated_silver_fox

EnormousGreenRageMonster: Needs more signs like the Sydney Aquarium Croc exhibit...[evolution-control.com image 800x600]
AirForceVet: TheDumbBlonde: "A dingo ate my baby!".I was visiting Australia around the time after Azaria Chamberlain's death by dingo and was amazed the Australians all assumed she and her husband killed the baby. The general public there just couldn't seem to believe a wild dingo could take a nine-week-old baby and eat it. The jokes they made were dark and funny though.As I'm from Florida, a baby getting killed and eaten by a wild animal isn't unknown. Seemed like the Australian media whipped the public up into a frenzy that the parents killed their baby, instead of believing the more logical cause.Glad our American media doesn't do the same thing here, mates.

mike_d85: The_Original_Roxtar: the morsel in question[www.wtae.com image 640x480]Did... did they really provide the news a picture of them allowing him to play with heavy equipment?I realize the possibility that he was perfectly safe in that situation (keys removed, trained operater supervising, etc.), but that is a toddler with it's hands on the controls of what appears to be a bulldozer. Given the circumstances of the child's death, it may have not been the brightest move on their part.
mike_d85: darth_badger: I wonder what the animals poop looked like?At least one of them had glasses, so it probably felt like one of those portraits that stare at you.
Well I use Mac/Linux...: Ostman:I was dropping a letter into an office in a builders yard for my boss in May, and the gate was locked as it was early. So I hopped the gate and walked around the piles of timber to the office. Where his guard Alsatian was sleeping. The dog did it's very best to let me know it didn't want a fight (although I don't know why, it was 3 metres tall at the shoulder and had teeth like knives...I think). Lots of snarling, barking, ears pinned back, etc.For my part, I did my best to let it know I was hop ...This is very true. My sister called me one day and said that she was out with this guy from work who lived a few minutes from my house, and he remembered that he had left his dog outside in the back yard. She asked me to run by his house, let myself in the backyard, and open the back door for the dog. I agreed. She gives me directions and I head over to the house. I open the side gate on the fence, walk in, and see his dog chained up in the back. It's a full grown German Shepard. It stands up and starts barking at me, and I immediately pull one of these:[24.media.tumblr.com image 320x240]
