Ever stop to wonder if suicide isn't exclusive to the human species?

A lifetime of lion can take its toll.

Masturbating lion misjudged the length of the rope. :(

he caught his neck in some wires or ropes that should not have been there. tragic accident, for sure. but it was also a shiatty zoo he did not likely enjoy being in as well.

Supangkat insisted that the death was an accident and not due to negligence.

LOL, lion should have stayed away from those cables.  He just should have known better.  It's not up to us to provide safe environments for the animals.

We had that happen to a ferret at the pet shop where I worked. We decided to give it a dumpster wake after my idea of a Viking funeral was overruled by management.

Wasn't Dead Lion an 80's hair band? They had a hit called "When The Children Cry".

unclear why the guards didnt' have him on suicide watch before this

As if they could have it on suicide watch after this?

Meanwhile at other zoos: " Behave or we'll send you to the death zoo."

I don't like animal abuse. But I'm waiting for the Papillon reference.

Dead lions aren't much fun
They don't come when you call
They don't chase squirrels at all
Dead lions aren't much fun
My lion died late last fall
He's still rotting in the hall
Dead lions aren't much fun
Mom says lion's days are through
She's gonna throw him in the stew
Dead lions aren't much fun

I don't think it is. I think any thinking species may want to end a miserable existence. There was video of a Moon Bear who essentially committed murder and suicide. She'd been being used for years in a Vietnam bile farm. They basically strap the bars down in a metal  cage / coffin, insert a tube into their stomachs and milk out the bile. They keep them like that for years. It wasn't made clear on the video if she was pregnant when they captured her and gestated there, or if they ran a breeding program as well (or maybe it was, I don't understand Vietnamese). Anyway, the video shows them letting her out of this coffin briefly, with her baby. She snapped its neck and ran into a wall head first until she was dead. Very graphic.

Came to ask why a dead lion would need a cage in the first place.
 
2014-01-09 05:53:19 PM
Doesn't an orca let its fin droop when in captivity? A sign of giving up because of confinement. The first step towards suicide.

Beached whales and dolphins would make me say that it's not.

It's not, at least in one case.  The wikipedia page for "bear bile" had a reference to a mother bear breaking out of her cage, strangling her cub, then running head-first into a wall until she died.  The reference is a dead link now, but it's probably out there on the googles.

I lived in Indonesia for four and a half years. If I was unable to purchase a flight out I'd hang myself aswell.

Sad story bro:

We had a dog when I was a kid. One time my family went on vacation for a week and had a neighbor boy taking care of our dog while we were gone. We got home from vacation and couldn't find the dog anywhere. Called the neighbor boy and he said he had gone to feed her a few days before and found her hanging from her chain. Apparently she had climbed on top of her dog house and slipped or something and was hung by her chain.

I was glad. I hated that dog.

At least he didn't have to live a thousand days as a lamb.

a tiger whose food was laced with formaldehyde

I was once reading about the toxicology of formaldehyde, and how some people have tried suicide by drinking it. I gotta tell you -- if ever you want to die in the slowest, most painful way possible with the doctors completely unable to help you, turning your stomach into a leathery football is a good way to do it.

I need a stiff drink after reading that. Uugh.

Funny, for some reason I initially misread that as "DetroitLion."  Not even joking.

\not even remotely in Lions territory, but my brother & cousin absolutely worshiped Barry Sanders growing up

This is what makes me think there's no God.  The extended-use farms like this, crappy zoos with lame enclosures, etc.  Even in some sort of karmic situation, the animal will lose anyway.  But, at the same time, I wish those beasts being treated/held in an unfortunate manner get their chances.  Certain people are assholes.  Can't we just get rid of them in the Roman way?
