    It's disgusting how zoos still have such stupid countermeasures. I mean zoos aren't new they've been around for a very long time. People have been falling into enclosures, animals have been attacking each other and their solution is... flares.

Those are signs a crucial matchmaking operation between two new Sumatran tigers is going to plan as the zoo plays a significant role in preserving the critically endangered animals. Their courtship could take up to 18 months…

    Mating Behavior of Tigers…
    Whether a tiger needs to convey its readiness to mate or its personal territory, it is most likely going to communicate this using its scent-rich urine. During times at which the female is ready to mate, she is able to increase her urine-marking activities. She will be sure to mark her territory liberally, ensuring that males within the area are aware of her state…

    Based on the Lion king logic system, her kids must be given the chance to avenge their mothers death. It could be cage match style.

    They used flairs and alarms to try to break up the fight. Are you kidding me? Are these zookeepers morons? Why weren’t they equipped with more effective tools in case things went south? Tasers, rubber bullets, etc. Because of the inept zookeepers, a rare animal died.

      'Morons' fits though I fear you have little experience of Britain's dopey snowflakes. The World Wildlife Federation considers Sumatran tigers critically endangered, probably when they're at London Zoo.
