A zoo in Belgium is asking visitors not to make eye contact with its chimps. http://www.heraldnet.com/stories/07/04/19/100wir_a2monkey001.cfm?refresh=yes It can cause them to lose interest in their own species. The chimps, not the visitors, we hope.

A Dickens’ World theme park will open soon with, what else, great expectations. http://www.heraldnet.com/stories/07/04/19/100wir_a2dickens001.cfm?refresh=yes The London-area park comes complete with rat catchers, pickpockets and wenches.
