Last year at a zookeepers conference I was asked if I wanted to go along on a debut trip of American Zookeepers to join a cat walk which is a conservation effort by MYCAT to keep the Taman Negara park safe for Tigers and other wildlife. The Malayan Tiger may be the least known of the remaining six sub species of tiger and their numbers are down to around 250. Long story short, I was totally for the idea and a year later I found myself there with 14 other keepers. Before we went into the jungle we spent a day exploring Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, which is where the video report starts. Video one finds us at the bird park. I hope you enjoy the series.

SafariChick posted a topic in World wildlifeI guess this is off topic since it took place in the U.S. but it involves wild dogs, so I thought people would be interested if they had not yet heard about this. Very sad, wonder how the little boy fell in? I'm sure a major investigation will follow. Actually after reading the article again, I see it says the boy died and the dogs did attack him, but it's unclear whether he died from the fall or from the dogs attacking. I was sad to also see that one dog wouldn't come away from the boy's body "and police had to shoot him, Baker said." Baker is the president and CEO of the zoo. Does this raise issues as to whether wild dogs should be kept in a zoo setting? http://www.cbsnews.c...pittsburgh-zoo/
