Zoo administration has banned examine animals

Recently, the administration of Antwerp Zoo to the previously existing call (not feed the animals!) Added another – animals do not examine. Signs with the inscription appeared on the cells from primates. The reason for this strange request was convinced employees of the zoo that gazes from their pets start to feel sad, and sometimes even turn in on themselves. Visitors are advised to avert their eyes (or retreat a few steps), even if the monkey itself is looking at them. It should be noted that such an unusual request of a confused Belgian zoo. In most cases, the proposal did not examine primates perceived as a joke. After all, the whole point is lost when visiting the zoo.
