SAO PAULO, Brazil -- Police are investigating a series of mysterious deaths by apparent poisoning at the Sao Paulo Zoo, where 10 animals died in a two-week period.

An elephant, three chimpanzees, three tapirs, and three camels were found dead between Jan. 24 and Feb. 6 at the zoo in Brazil's largest city. A tapir is an endangered, hoofed animal that is a distant relative of the horse and rhinoceros.

At first, police suspected a possible serial animal killer, spreading poison in cages at the zoo, one of the world's largest. Now authorities are focusing on a more mundane theory: rat poison.

this is so sad. I'm pretty sure the rat poison is to blame, but the zoo should definitely be more responsible and take more precautions in this matter.

I think we can file this one under biological terrorism.

Gee first thought in my mind was PETA.

Why would PETA kill these animals? It's an animal rights organization. Sure, they are against keeping animals in zoo for humans viewing plesure, but why would they kill these animals?
