Considering that today was Darwin Day this news item seems appropriate:
BRUSSELS, Belgium: An animal lover was mauled to death by cheetahs at a zoo in northern Belgium, authorities and zoo officials said Monday.
It was unclear why Karen Aerts, 37, entered the cheetah cage late Sunday, Olmense Zoo spokesman Jan Libot said. She was found dead in the cage, Libot told VTM television.
I know why she entered the cage. Because she was a dumb ass who thought that her love of the cats would keep them from killing her. She was wrong.
Aerts, from the city of Antwerp, was a regular visitor to the zoo, which is 90 kilometers (55 miles) northeast of Brussels.
One of the cats that killed her was named Bongo. Aerts had adopted Bongo under a special program, paying for food for the cat, Libot said.
“Karen loved animals. Unfortunately the cheetahs betrayed her trust,” he said.
The cheetahs didn’t betray anyone’s trust, they just did what cheetahs do. If you’re dumb enough to treat them like domestic house cats you’ll find yourself removed from the gene pool pretty damn quick.
