    Did they actually eat him or did they just bite him?

    Like piranha!
    Well at least the meerkats ate well; although considering the average child these days I'm not sure if such a high-fat diet is really suitable for them. Though I supposed if it only happens once or twice it won't cause too much long term harm.

    The random nature of Pokemon GO should help ensure that pokemon revolve around different pens so the feeding should occur more at random - simulating natural feeding patterns and food access and the increased food supply could well mean that zoos don't have to put as much finance into feeding as they once did.
