Mom must share blame

In response to “Zoo filing blames mauling on mom” (Sept. 12), the African painted dogs should not share any blame.

They are wild animals kept in a small enclosure, not free to roam the vast landscape that was once their home.

I would stand wholly behind the zoo and its defense of the lawsuit. While the zoo may have been able to protect the public from a tragedy such as this, zoo visitors need to take responsibility for their actions.

No amount of money will bring the Durkoshes their son back. The simple fact is, his mother lifted him above the railing and did not hold on to him.

I wish the Durkosh family would allow time to heal and move on from this accident. That is the only thing that will make this better.
