for all the info head to the abc's website. the animal cruelty allegation report is in the news section, another story is on the 730 report website... its basically an ex employee who is griping about the death of a male black rhino in 1994 and female komodo dragon which must have been in 1995. the komodo was killed by tuka, the male. the greens party have seized on these deaths as a reason why taronga shouldnt have elephants! at the end of the day the zoo is about life, and sometimes death. the death of the male rhino who crashed into the fence was a tragedy-but all 6 females were unloaded succesfully in the same manner. anyway the zoo said it learnt from the experience and reviewed its procedures. and did anyone see the today show today? they were back at taronga and one of the hosts was in the exhibit with pornthip when she blasted him with a trunkful of water!!!
