Anybody Read Jungle Book Lately????? by 


If so, one would think this fellows name would be Shere Khan, but no….this fellow’s name is Bagheera, or Baggy, as I call him. My daughter and I were visiting Cougar Mountain Zoo in Issaquah, Washington (USA). My daughter knelt down to take pic’s of Baggy’s brother, and Baggy immediately went into stalk mode. It was the most amazing thing to see the transformation. As soon as I told her she was being stalked she slowly rose to her feet and he slipped back into normal strolling mode just as quickly, which was a really good thing, since the only thing between us was large glass panels (thick yes, but still just glass) and a very thin perforated metal panel. I suspect if he had thrown his approximately 400 pounds at the panel or glass the results may have been less than wonderful!!

    Beautiful animal, unfortunatelly, they are kept for our amuzement in life prison. No wonder they behave neurotic.

  • Thanks so much Mary! Actually this fellow was displaying a very normal behavior, one you would see in the wild as well. I know some zoo’s are deplorable, but this little zoo is wonderful. The staff are constantly working with the animals and even allow a tiny bit of contact between some guests and the animals!

    I am so glad hearing that. I’ve seen on tv chanels animals kept behind glass and vistors (mostly children) were teasing them. When the big animals charged hitting the glass, the parents, instead of controling their children, were out of control, screaming and yelling. Then, I’ve seen adults mocking the animals, making fun of them. Totally disturbing….

  • That is so sad!! I’ve never been able to understand that sort of behavior!! We have several small zoo’s in our area that are all wonderful in that regard. Staff are constantly wandering around amongst the guest to watch for inappropriate behavior on the guests part. They are very protective of their animals, and are all involved in the endangered animal programs.
