"Safe Sanctuary" v. Stupidity

Guys, is the story at the link one that cries out for "Safe Sanctuary" or for a campaign to help some folks act with a bit more sanity?

He asked for a "full contact experience" and he got a full contact experience.  Promises made, promises kept.

RD, correct! That's why it is amazing that the guy sued the owner. The owner should be able to successfully defend the suit based on what you mentioned (noted in the story). That should be the result even if the agency can properly act against the owner.

The insane man lost his ear and scalp.
The zoo keeper lost his livelihood for $150 and probably facing jail time.
The Leopard wins this one and licks its chops after having a good taste of stupidity.

Gripe, there are such things as accountability and liability.
Money is not always king. If Sea World allows mentality ill patrons to jump into a tank of sharks and there is a feed fest, who is held accountable?

Another scenario.
If some nut asks to ride on top of your car for $150 while you drive on the expressway at 120km/hr. and happens to get thrown into on coming traffic when the breaks are hit, who is liable?
You know the answer, the driver at the wheel is responsible and held accountable.

I read this in my flipboard.

The client is a dickhead, but so is the owner who had absolutely no authorisation to let it happen. He will be fried, rightly so.

A first year law student might ask the court..."why was a person permitted to enter a Leopards cage? "
Obviously the zoo man was an idiot for allowing access.

Oh, because he was willing to pay $150 so all was good.
