They have one of those between here and St. Louis. My dad called earlier and asked if I thought my daughter would want to go. My parents took my son about 2 years ago and he really liked it. This kinda makes me wonder if we should go.

It is, I think, a warning that wild animals are always a little wild. The owner of the sanctuary can be expected to have a good understanding of this little idea, as well as intimate knowledge of the animals in question. That is, their health, their mental balance, etc.. Even with those advantages, she was attacked. The Crocodile Hunter, Steven, when alive routinely flirted with disaster. He was either blessed, skilled, or both. A point proved by this woman's encounter.

Indeed...its never safe whether or not one have been training or familiarising with a wild animal since young... There have been too many cases of such attacks even when a lion tamer or elephant tamer are doing an act and things went wrong just like that... Letting one's guard down is probably the most silly thing to do...They are animals no matter what and they have their instincts...
