Way back when, the nation of Bhutan had a national zoo. But because Bhutan is a Serious Buddhist country, people complained that animals were being kept in cages instead of being allowed to roam about, made a spectacle of, etc. So the zoo disbanded and all the animals were to be released into the wild. The zoo keepers opened the gates of the Takin enclosure and went off to free more animals. The next day they came back, and the Takins were still there. They came back the next day, the Takins were still there. They kept coming back, and the Takins kept staying there. So they made the Takin enclosure into a national preserve, and the Takins lived happily ever after without ever having to worry about someone opening their gates and letting in small annoying children ever again.
