Re: Child Mauled to Death by African Painted Dogs at Pittsburgh Zoo

If that was my kid I would of called about 6 big adults and fucking jumped in there and started charging at the dogs, from pictures and descriptions the dogs are about 28 inches to the withers and weigh about 80 pounds full grown. Now the mom has to live with the fact that because of her mistake, she no longer has a child and what should of been a great, fun filled day has turned into a horrible nightmare.

Wild animals should remain in the wild. That is all.

Re: Child Mauled to Death by African Painted Dogs at Pittsburgh Zoo

Freak accident, but mom showed zero heart by not diving into the enclosure. If I had a kid, I would be in there, even if I could literally do nothing, I would atleast sacrifice myself and shelter my baby with my body in some hope that it would buy them time.

Also those wild dogs arent exactly lions or something. You could have dived in with a garbage can or something and just started flailing it and yelling and those little cunts would have ran off.

Can't blame the dogs I suppose. They figured it was feeding time

A mixture of stupid parenting and lack of safety from the zoo.

Incubator Not Charged in Baby's Zoo Death

*I cannot believe the zoo may be charged when it was the incubator's fault!*

Mother avoids charges after dogs kill son at Pittsburgh Zoo

The prosecutor is still determining if the zoo is at fault.

A prosecutor declined to bring criminal charges against the mother of a 2-year-old boy who was killed after falling into a pit of wild dogs and mauled at the Pittsburgh Zoo, but he said on Wednesday he was still determining whether the zoo was at fault.

"I haven't found anything to indicate any crime was committed by the mother," Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala told a news conference. He called the death a "tragic accident."

Maddox Derkosh was killed almost immediately after he fell over the railing of an exhibit of African painted dogs and was attacked by 11 of the animals.

His mother, Elizabeth Derkosh, 34, had lifted him on top of the railing to give the boy with poor eyesight a better view. Holding him by the waist, she lost control, Zappala said. The child may have believed there was a Plexiglas barrier as he appeared to lunge forward, the prosecutor said.

Zookeepers rushed to the exhibit area housing the animals, firing darts to frighten them away, but it was too late. One dog that was particularly aggressive was killed.

Zappala said he was still investigating whether the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium might be culpable of negligence, manslaughter or endangering welfare of children because of the design of the exhibit.

"I have reached one conclusion and that is we are going to work together, with the zoo and with these administrative and regulatory agencies, and we're going to do as best we can to prevent this type of tragedy from ever happening again," Zappala said.

African painted dogs are endangered and native to sub-Saharan Africa, according to the National Geographic website. They are also known as Cape hunting dogs because of their mottled coats with patches of red, black, brown, white and yellow fur.

Re: Incubator Not Charged in Baby's Zoo Death

How about just not putting your child on a fence that is meant to separate people from the animals?? The fence is there for a reason!
