A two year old boy was mauled to death at the Pittsburgh zoo because his mother let him stand on the railings and accidentally dropped him into a pit of African wild dogs
. This story is so heartbreaking and makes me so sad, but I decided to write about it because I just don't understand how parents are so willing to put their children into unnecessary danger. It is no different from when Michael Jackson dangled his child over a hotel room balcony, he just happened to not accidentally drop his child. I don't understand why you put your child in a car seat to keep them safe, but then think it is a great idea to dangle them over wild animals or over a balcony railing. The zookeepers were incredibly fast and made valiant effort, but they could not save the life of the boy. The mother of the boy is currently being medicated for shock.
