Zoos are some of the most impressive and fascinating entertainment attractions in the world, but some are actually really bad for the animals locked inside of a cage. These animals are removed from their natural habitat and forced into a man-made enclosure that generally contains far too much concrete. Unfortunately, the animals are generally in a deep pit of depression, and some end up perishing in their cage. Sometimes things go even worse, though, as accidents happen, and innocent people get hurt along with the animals. Here are ten of the most horrifying zoo incidents of all time.
Binky The Polar Bear
In 1994, Australian tourist Kathryn Warburton decided she just had to scale the safety fences erected around the containment area for Binky, a 1,200 pound polar bear. The bear decided to grab hold of the girl, breaking her arm and tearing her flesh.
Melody The Tapir
In 1998, zookeeper Lisa Morehead was feeding Melody the Tapir, who was recently a new mother, when the animal attacked. The tapir attacked, causing Morehead to suffer internal injuries, including a punctured lung, and lost her entire left arm, too.
