Europe: Lions Under Attack





Zoologists, studying the patterns of lions and zebras for many generations, have begun a plan of integration between the two species and it is creating a stir among zoo keepers, visitors, and the scientists who instituted the plan.  Zoologists claim that it is largely a cost-savings plan and that lions have been maligned in the public mindset for far too long and captive breeding has eliminated the hunting instincts within them.

They claim absolute scientific data backing their finding that says that lions raised in captivity, particularly 2nd and 3rd generation, having no experience in hunting, that are well fed, will not attack zebras in the enclosures, saving valuable land and showing a strong responsible ethic towards saving the planet, reducing waste, and fulfilling a mandate of integration.

Zookeepers, however, report that once the lions are placed in the zebra enclosures, they inevitably are left dealing with the aftermath:  dead zebras, traumatized workers and visitors, and an ever increasing cry from the public.

In some European locales,  organized demonstrations and boycotts have arisen, claiming that it is not "safe" to bring their children, who are eye witnessing the devastation of the zebra within the enclosures,  by the lions.

Zoologists, certain of their scientific data, claim that zookeepers are not adequately feeding the lions, which only leaves them hungry and desperate for food, forced, in this sense, to prey upon the zebra.

In situations where the lions have been fed under the supervision of zoologists, including the measurement of food, but have still attacked zebras, the zoologists claim that the "negative energy emitting from the fear and phobia of the zoo employees" is creating an atmosphere of "violence and attack" from the lions. They claim that the protestors are actually increasing the risk to the zebra, with their "negative energy" and "refusal to protect the environment."

The zoologists point to their research, the conservation of land, and have issued a statement reinforcing their commitment to integration claiming, "we can manage this."

Behavioral experts have been brought in, who support the integration data,  to assist the lions in their new environment.  One such expert was recently hospitalized with an unconfirmed report of a lion attack but the surveillance video has been destroyed and the expert has declined to comment.

Zoologists have urged the public to "not add to the problem" by videotaping the integration program.

"Lions are not inherently violent", one zoologist stated, "it is the environment that causes the violence.  We must stop seeing lions as predators.  It is antiquated and it is morally repugnant. Behavioralists repeatedly show that lions are peaceful and tranquil creatures and should be treated as such. "  

The BBC reported that "an extremely prejudicial environment" is contributing to the zebra attacks by these 3rd generation captivity lions, citing the behavioralist claim that the "nervousness, bordering on phobia" of the employees, is causing the lions to attack the zebras.  In one recent headline, the editor wrote, "Zebra Hurt At Zoo; Mishandling Suspected" while another claimed "Lions At Risk of Public Demonization."

Update:  French and German media have reported that they will no longer be carrying pictures of lions attacking.  "Glorifying violence is not what we do" said Der Speigel in a release late last night.

If I'm understanding this correctly, this zoologist's assertion is that by captivity alone (osmosis) a 2nd or 3rd generation captive lion will evolve to "human" consciousness (awakening/enlightenment) and will choose to no longer act on their "repugnant" and primal urge *to survive* (stalk and kill). Instead it will choose to depend on the "calm and relaxed" delivery of a third-party, civilized, and morally processed diet.

Huh.

A "domesticated" cat, (I will define as a "tamed" carnivorous mammal), is provided food and shelter; but when left to their own accord, will act on their primal instinct and stalk and kill (birds, mice). What of this *common*, repugnant and violent behaviour? Is this too instigated by an nervous, paranoid pet owner?

I can't wait to hear Tania chime in on this one. :0)

"We must stop seeing lions as predators." - But why? That is EXACTLY what they are!
Full Definition of predator: one that preys, destroys, or devours; an animal that lives by predation.

Did these "zoologists" even go to school? What are they teaching over there?

@KC, Not a single quote comes up in Google search, so maybe this is a test. :0)

Hey Jude said...

"Further, a statement was issued today by Dr Merkel, chief zoologist, accusing the zookeepers of scaremongering by identifying the predators negatively as 'lions' rather than by the more positive and less inflammatory term, 'cat'."

I'm LOLing at Hey Jude's comment. It's sad but true. Merkel makes a great case for why women had long been thought to not belong in politics.

BobCAT said...

Nic, it's an excellent immigration parallel. Your first comment is still excellent to apply.

Cats are murderers! I have witnessed many, many stalkings and murders by cats. They don't always do it for food - they do it for FUN, even when overfed by generous hosts. Hosts that they even allow to pet their bellies, and reward with purrs.

Am I a (cat) racist?

with this kind mentality, is it any wonder that people stood by booing as a man attacked the police in a German airport? These people have been conditioned to believe if we just love enough and are understanding enough we'll all get along fine and masculinity is bad. I'm sure if the same thing happened at an airport in America it wouldn't take more than 2 seconds for several strong men to jump into action to help the police instead of watching and booing and filming. No wonder Europe has descended into madness.

@BobCat,

Re HJ quoting "Dr. Merkel".

1) It is evident I am still reading too fast. I can't even blame it on being distracted by ads, because I have installed an ad blocker on my Mac to help keep me "focused". :0)
2) When I was Googling quotes from Peter's post, most of the hits were about "Isis". Interesting, isn't it? It still didn't register that what I was reading was 'bogus'.
3) I put too much stalk in my source. Bad Nic!

I have discussed this concept with my two "tamed" carnivorous mammals.
They wish me to make it known that they object to the term "Tamed"
Citing precedent over the millenia they wish it to be known that they are gods and goddesses and, as was deemed their rightful position in life, worshiped as such by mere apes who managed to figure out which end of the pointy stick to use to make pretty patterns, with hardly any actual thought processes themselves but a lot of pointing and prodding by their rightful masters, the Feline.

In referring to the term "tamed" carnivorous mammals. it is presumed by Wingnut Cubert Picklebutt, the First Of His Name and Clancy Faladoodledoodah McHooligan the First Of Her Name, that the term is widely used to describe homo sapiens, creatures designed only to serve the wishes of their superiors, namely Felines, specifically in this case, themselves.

Although they have no desire to taint their claws or palate with anything less than the finest, most delectable morsels, they will on occasion take the time needed to show their sometimes useful servants, in this case me, how to control the environment removing pests, minimizing annoying sounds at OMG o'clock in the morning and generally making sure their superiors, in this case, themselves, are not disturbed in any way shape or form.

Unfortunately homo sapiens being what we are, slightly educated apes, we simply do not seem to grasp the concept of tranquility, an environment conducive for the sheer magnificence of their gods and goddesses, The Feline, in which they can grace us with their divine presence

Educating servants is neither repugnant, violent or, dare i say it in their presence. common?
It is a basic requirement if they are to be treated as the gods and goddesses that they are.
Eventually, with time and positive reinforcement, i am given to understand that we mere mortals, will be deemed competent to maintain a suitable living environment where Felines can contemplate the whichness of why, and how a speck of dust can impact a whole planet if not closely monitored, with hardly any effort from themselves, as they govern the very subatomic particles of space-time and the multiverses.
How their vocalisations, which may sound cute, or worse, funny to use mere mortals, keep the multiverses in perfect tune and harmony.

I must go now for i sense in their eyes an atom of impatience, an atom which could lead to the implosion of who knows how many multiverses if their needs are not met at once.

Their humble and inconsequential servant,
Tania

Hillary Clinton is an evil friggin witch. If I have to listen to her talk for the next 8 years it's just going to be one more thing that makes me want to vomit. Bernie Sanders...hello! What did he say? What did he believe? I never listened to a word he said because it sounded like he had just gargled with gravel 9 times in a row. VERY disgusting how the Democratic Party exploited the grief of a Muslim man and his wife who lost their son who was a member of the US army. Hillary you manipulator, ISIS kills mostly Muslims! The poor Mulsim man's son was killed at war due to Muslims fanatics on the other side of the globe. I hope Donald Trump wins...it will be just another thing that drives me absolutely f&ckin crazy to have to listen to Hillary and look at her evil exrpressions for 8 years!!!!!!!!

I watched the slowed-down micro-expression video. Hillary's initial smile when she is pointing at Obama looks identical to the Joker from Batman, who is a psychopath. What amazes me is that people don't see it...I cannot even look at her picture in the newspaper for a full second because she just looks so evil. Why the hell do people support her?
Even her recent comment about how children in the womb do not have human or Constitutional rights even one minute before birth...seriously, people who make those kinds of comments how would they feel if they were aborted one minute before they were born? It's barbarism not even thinly disguised. These people are base evil.

And the way it looks like Obama is trying to do some type of romantic slow-dance with her while she pats him on the back like she is allergic to human contact and then pan over to Bill and he looks like he's getting a little jealous...seriously, does this come with a barf bag? WTF! These people are so stupid and irritating!!!

This is a good read and not long at all. It's Canadian, so a step away from American politics; however, JR states the obvious on all fronts: the consequence of being too PC from radical islam and terrorism, to BLM, cops and fatherless sons. This article really hits home how out of touch the The Establishment is and how their hubris is what is elevating Donald Trump and will quite literally get him elected.

I am 'Employed' by a now, 1-yr old 'Tom-Cat', who generously surprised me with the 'Gift' of a MOUSE! Dropped before my feet, just last week¡
While still 'intact' - With no signs of exterior 'injury' or 'wounding' . . . It was only upon my discovering that it had 'legs' that I realized it wasn't one of his 'Toy' mice!
The 'Ruckus' in the basement was his 'discovery' that we may have (had) a mouse/mice or two in the house . . .
But all that PLAY - Resulted in a broken neck!
Not to mention, extreme upset, when I took the mouse 'permanently' away from him!

I've since set a couple traps . . . I hope that doesn't make make me a 'Mouse-Racist'¿
And he's back to PLAYING with the 'Toy' ones!

@10:24, I can respond more in-depth to your question later, however Trump is running for President out of love for the country...yes he has his flaws, but no he is not an evil person like Hillary. Trump is also smart...very smart and strategic move saying "me and Putin will get along great...and he will respect me"..,brilliant actually. As far as Trump being misogynistic...probably in his personal life he is...he wants a trophy wife (although Melania is a very intelligent and kind woman, and I think she does--or did--actually love him)...but his other flaws like feuding with Rosie O'Donnell...it's not misogyny...it's pettiness. As far as is he anti-Muslim? No, I dont believe he is, and Dems who spin it that way...it's bull...he'a trying to keep ISIS sympathizers out of the country and the sad fact is you cant tell who is an ISIS sympathizers and ISIS kills mostly Muslims...do the Dems know that? Hey listen Obama didnt give a rats ass when ISIS forced 100,000 people up a mountain to either starve or be killed...do you actually think he cares if 20, 50, etc people get shot in an ISIS attack on U.S. soil. He doesnt. In fact his admin tried to spin it that "it wasnt that bad up on the mountain for ISIS's victims...there were some sheep up there, so no biggie. Just like baby's one minute before birth "arent human" and can be killed according to Hillary. My son was born 3 months early...right when he was born he had a personality, facial expression that he still has to this day and he is almost an adult now. So whatever...Democrats are evil. They are the Adolph Hitlers. Trump is a sheep compared to Democrat wolves.

And as far as the abortion issue, I don't judge people who have them in the first trimester...I get that some people are in dire situations and it is not my right or desire to judge, nor do I think they should be judged unless you have walked in their shoes, and you haven't and I haven't...it is a whole different ball game when you have a President who prosecuted the people who took undercover video of people (doctors) laughingly discussing the harvesting and selling of baby organs, and which way to crush an advanced stage fetus to get "a brain" etc. When I watched a few of those videos, I knew I was looking right into the face of pure evil. The nonchalance and light-hearted way it was discussed...look, even the Nazis knew what they were doing was wrong--they tried to hide it from the world, they were ashamed on some level. The people in those videos...they didn't care if someone overheard from the other table, etc. There was no shame they were laughing and nonchalant. And then the President prosecutes the ones who filmed it. That is good and evil turned upside down if I"ve ever seen it. I won't be voting Democrat. NO way.

Bobcat said...

This is a jumble, but here goes.

I watched Trump during the first season of The Apprentice. He is very hard working, smart and direct. He is also full of bravado. Everything is "The Best!"

He could keep doing what he is doing and make more money than he will as President.
He loves his country and is trying to do what he can to save it.
Hillary loves power and money and will sell out security and borders to line her pockets.

Donald is brusque and I understand how offputting that is to a lot of the voters. However, having lived in New York - the brusque nature is very common and how things work.

He gets stuff done. He gets union workers to give him honest labor for their pay.

He loves his country MORE than money in his pocket.
Hillary is the opposite.

I agree, Bobcat!

Trumps loves the U.S.A. He has no hidden agenda. He has no special interest groups to appease.

Hillary's agenda is exclusive, elitist, and covert.

Trigger said...

It is interesting that "behaviorists" think that lions are not naturally wild killers by nature, but peaceful when they get their basic needs met.

Does anyone remember the tiger act in Las Vegas that got violent because a tiger lost his focus on the trainer/owner, because it "reacted" to a woman in the audience?

A trainer was mauled on stage by his own tamed tiger.

It is interesting that a "woman" got the blame, not the tiger or the trainer, that came "untrained" and attacked the expert tiger trainer when he least expected it.

Who gets the blame when wild animals go wild and attack someone? Surely, not the experts, but the society of ignorant citizens who don't understand the difference between wild behavior and tame behavior.

What is questionable? The behaviorist theory or those real life photos?

Esther Tarkus said...

Its funny to read how hillary and donald (speaking about peace and natural instinct) were part of this conversation about the question if lions are peacefull when fed enough and if their natural instinct dissapear after some generations in captivity.
Iam from the Netherlands and never heard of putting zebras into lions habitats, so like others i do wonder where this was practiced. But reading the article i asked myself....how many generations of people have been on this planet???? (I would have no clue tho) but isnt it that humans still use their natural instinct when in certain situations or just when basic needs are rare and needed.....they also will kill to survive if needed, maybe not all....like someone justly commented.....that some will just standby and watch and do nothing....i do see that happening in vids ive seen and find it horrific to see how people can see bad happening and just do nothing. There is so much complaining from the people but non are motivated to do something about it.....i find it really scary to live in such a country which citizens who dont seem to care only complain about what it is costing them or those they love.....everyone else is non of their business.

Someone said....hillary is a wolve and donald a sheep.......how are you so sure donald isnt a wolve in sheep clothes??? Still undiscovered?! I havent followed all of the things but have seen things passing by.....wasnt obama elected because everyone thought he would make a better difference???? At least thats what i remember from those days......a black president was elected and he would bring betterness (if thats even a word haha) for the American peolpl, but can you now say he did???
Who says that this wouldnt be the same for donald trump? Who now seems like a good choice (if you only have choice from either one of them) but iam not an expert whatsoever but i just have a bad feeling seeing this man acting, just like i have with hillary......power makes people different...
Back to the lions....i dont think natural instinct disapears with generations....as long its not necessary to use it it maybe seems like not present....but in the right circumstances and need it it will appear.
Sometime animals held in captivity will act on instinct base or just out of fear (treaten) when they find it needed.....there are many examples.... last i heard of an elephant trowing a rock to a girl, which she died from....we had a gorilla (Bokito) at blijdorp, rotterdam, who escaped and attaced a woman, at berlin two lions escaped, nobody got hurt.

Evelyn said...

Hi, this is off-topic but am seeking advice. My husband cheats on me and told me he would stop if I start keeping house better. Do you think he is lying or should I take him at his word? Thanks in advance.

Me2l said...

Question: are his lips moving? If so, he's probably lying.

You need to study statement analysis, then you could be sure when he's lying

Evelyn said...

Thanks Me2l for your response. I'd like to believe his lips are telling me the truth. But last week it was I forgot to sweep up some of his bread crumbs. This week it was I didnt fluff his pillow just right and I placed his snore-guard on the left side of his reading glasses on the night-stand instead of the right. So of course, I find more phone numbers in his brief case, lipstick on his collar, used condoms in his pocket....the sad thing is I WANT this marriage to work. If there are any men out there, please tell me if you think he'll ever be faithful? Thanks, I am devastated but hopeful.

Me2l said...

You want the marriage to work? When will it start? And how? You can't force someone to love you, and a serial cheater is not in love with you.

Evelyn said...

Thanks Me2l; it is confusing because I love this man. I do everything for him. He tells me he loves me but his frustration with my housekeeping leads him to stray. I started laying out his clothes for him, I heat his toast to the exact golden brown he likes with butter just beginning to melt, I put toothpaste on his toothbrush at night for him, I rub his feet. I have tried everything but the housekeeping is no good he says. I know he loves me, his frustration gets in the way. He gets very upset about his snore-guard being out of place. He has sleep apnea, so I understand. I will try harder.

Me2l said...

Sock

Evelyn said...

I DO lay out his socks everyday, and night, usually I place fresh socks right next to his snore-guard.

Esther Tarkus said...

You're not his mom....you're his wife.....and if he doesnt respect you as that and treat you like you say he does, you should no that isnt love and you deserve better as a woman. We easily say we love someone....but how can you say you really love someone if it makes you misserable and feeling incompetent and other negative feelings, that isnt love.....that sounds like depandency....and that aint love.

Evelyn said...

Esther Tarkus, Thanks, but I DO love him. He was my knight in shining armor. He cant help it...he says women just throw themselves at him. All he expects is good housekeeping. He just bought me a dozen roses and a trip to a spa. He is an absolute peach when he is like this, and I have reason to hope for the future. He is my everything.
