Sir: However anachronistic and sophistical those responsible for London Zoo may be (Jan Morris's letter, 2 January), it is surely a bitter black humour that gives 'honour' (to the unfortunate young man who was so badly injured when he climbed into the lions' den) for an action that can only have been caused by illness.

His father's hope that the incident would encourage more serious thought about the failures of care in the community seems to me to be more pertinent.

Yours faithfully,


London, SE3
