    Mmmm that's a rather mild criticism of a zoo where three attacks have occurred. Does anyone feel that media comments would have been more critical if this had happened at Taronga or Melbourne rather than the Australia Zoo?

    Yes, I suspect that is very much the case. And there have been no further articles recently. I guess its an Irwin thing.
