|Warning: The pictures on this page are violent and graphic!
Our visit to the Toronto Zoo showed us that the zoo has a dark side. Animals are given the opportunity to behave as they normally would in the wild - and some of them abuse that privilege.
In this case the offender was a large grizzly bear that attacked without warning. If violence makes you squeamish - we urge you to look at these pictures anyway. It isn't every day we get to witness a bear mauling as it's taking place.
In this attack the victim survived. We can learn from that - and know what to do if someday we are attacked.
Our Trip Journal brings you this information as a Public Service.
