Zookeeper in Mo. killed when charged by elephant - SFGate

"Several employees were with Bradford at the time because Patience had a history of being aggressive, she said. The zoo has two female and two male elephants. Another female, named Connie, died earlier this month. Zoo officials said they did not yet know what would happen to Patience."

I'm conflicted. I grew up going to a great zoo and have enjoyed many other zoos around the country, but I am beginning to think that perhaps this is an idea whose time has come and should be gone. Let's move towards virtual zoos or holographic, interactive museums instead.

Dear Buck,
Just like online books....they can put as many out there as they want, but there is something about touching and directly sensing the real thing and its wholeness. Same thing with virtual porn and the real thing. ; )
Natasha ps zoos will stay.
