Les Belges imitent les Ecossais ?

Posté le Mardi 17 avril 2007 par lagrette

Ah, ces Belges, toujours le mot pour rire !

Apres que les Ecossais aient conseillé aux écoliers de ne pas regarder les Muslmans pour ne pas les offenser :

PUPILS and teachers have been told by an official body not to stare at Muslims for fear of causing offence.

voila que le Zoo d’Anvers recommande aux visiteurs de ne pas regarder les singes dans les yeux, parce que ça les rend tristes et ça les déprime…

Most people visit zoos to see the animals – but visitors to Antwerp Zoo in Belgium are being told not to look at the apes.

Instead, visitors are now confronted with signs telling them that making prolonged eye contact with the apes leaves them sad and withdrawn. Zoo staff reckon staring can result in the creatures becoming less sociable.

A spokesman said: « We are saying to visitors that, if our apes hold eye contact with them, then they should look away for a bit or take a step back. Our evidence shows that chimpanzees and other apes who have a lot of contact with visitors apparently tend to isolate themselves from their companions over the course of time. »

But the policy has bemused some zoo-goers, who while used to signs asking them not to feed the animals, are now wondering if this is taking animal welfare a step too far.

Dirk Woldt, a teacher visiting the zoo with his family, said: « When we saw the signs, we thought it was a joke.

« The next thing you know, they’ll be having to counsel the apes. »
