I feel horrible for everyone involved in this story. I can't imagine going on after knowing I caused the death of my child - I can't imagine going on after bearing witness to a death like this child received. There are things in this world that can't be unseen and unheard.

Stories like this scar my soul and I'm glad they are so infrequent. No one deserves to die this way.

I guess the zoo is now closed indefinitely, any leads on why happens to the dogs?

An article I read said back in May they escaped their enclosure and the visitors were made to hide in a building until the keepers could catch and return all 8 dogs to the enclosure?

(This is not in reference to the zoo having any fault in the child's death, I'm just curious what happens now to the dogs.)

Yikes really? Scary.

I haven't heard anything about what they plan to do. all I heard last night on the news was they were still trying to reach a decision on what to do with them but if they've escaped before I can't imagine the outlook is good

The African painted dogs that mauled to death a child at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium on Sunday will not be euthanized, remaining instead in quarantine, the zoo's chief executive said today.

That's horrifying. That poor little boy. I'm glad they're not euthanizing the dogs - it would be blatantly unfair (and yet very normal for this country) to punish them for doing what came naturally.

I read a little bit about how these African Painted dogs hunt and kill and I can understand now why they wouldn't try to resuscitate him.

In most cases of zoo animal deaths if the animal isn't killed on scene to protect the victim, they do not usually euthanize them afterwards. Recently a couple of people (adults, who WILLINGLY climbed into enclosures) have been killed by zoo animals and none of them have been put down, thankfully.

Yes it's definitely not the animals' fault.

It does make you wonder though why we keep doing that to wild animals (except endangered species I guess).

I'm hoping that they will relocate the animals to another zoo.

I can see people calling for blood on this one, and I worry that if they are kept where they are people might try and take matters into their own hands. How easy would it be to throw poisoned meat into their enclosure if someone wanted too?
