Quotes

Chairman Peter Levine said: "This discovery represents a significant milestone for both President Energy and for the country of Paraguay.  "
"The problem is that Far Cry 2 was done in Africa" he said. "We started to look at different places."
...He tells us that they have more routine, because members of the public can come and feed them. "Because there are set feeding times, we try to break up their day with different things so their minds aren't focused on it and they are kept mentally challenged."
"Changes were also immediately made to the tapir habitat after the incident to make it a protected contact habitat for staff."
