    Child homicide by dog or MOM?


    Pittsburgh police Major Crimes Lt. Kevin Kraus said the boy's 34-year-old mother placed the child in a standing position on a wooden railing overlooking the enclosure.

    A zoo spokeswoman and police said the wooden railing is 4 feet in height and the lower mesh barrier is 11 feet 4 inches above the open exhibit space.


    I vote MOM.

    What a tragic story.

    Is this where we get to sit in judgement of the mother based on nothing more than our own prejudices?

    I know how much we all like to do that.

    Took my daughter to the zoo, and we saw a man lift his child's stroller up onto the railing to the seal exhibit and tilt it so the child could see down to the swimming seals.

    I was less then polite when I told him what a mistake that was.

    It was sheer stupidity on the mother's part but her real punishment is that she's going to have to live with this for the rest of her life.

    I don't think it was homicide....but it was a pretty STUPID move by the mother! I always get so nervous if little kids are anywhere NEAR an area that they could fall into, especially at a zoo! I think she should be punished some way just for the stupid thing she did...
