Haifans can rest easier

Lions, tigers, bears, and other large carnivorous animals at the zoo in Haifa, Israel, have been locked in bomb-proof cages to prevent them from possibly escaping during the fighting between Israel and Hizbollah. "If a rocket hits the open-air pen and one of the carnivores escapes into the city, it would not be a nice prospect," said the zoo's head keeper, Yoav Ratner. The carnivores are being contained in secure rooms similar to bomb shelters, Ratner said.

As an added precaution, working dogs have been issued gas masks. Just kidding. Or maybe not.
