Glad he stays home. Also read the article at the site about that woman who 'despaired over not finding a job' and climbed several hurdles to get into the bear's enclosure. She was mauled. A pity she did not have the brains to realise she put the zoo staff's lives in danger, not to mention the possibility of someone having had to shoot the bears to save her life. Tut-tut...
