The plot thickens as the investigation of the fatal San Francisco zoo tiger attack continues. It seems the three young men were drinking, but the two survivors haven't been forthcoming about the details. Makes you wonder, doesn't it?
Meanwhile, a respected Northern California zoologist, Dr. Richard Tenaza was expelled from the Oakland Zoo last week for questioning the chainlink containment of the tiger enclosure. You may read about it here.
Professor Tenaza has long made use of the bay area's museums and zoos to teach courses in zoology at the University of the Pacific. Instead of welcoming dialogue, zoo officials asked him to leave the zoo. I've known Tenaza for 40+ years, and he is not an uppity guy. It seems the Oakland zoo is suffering from Tiger-escapa-phobia.
