A report I saw from the zoo said they were trying to use tranqs as often as possible, but in some instances the adrenal rushes caused the tranq to take too long and by then the animal was charging.

Do I think this is true for ALL of the shot animals?

No :/

Yeah, the article said they tried tranquilizers in some cases, but that they weren't always effective and the sun was going down. First priority is keeping people safe, I just wish the turnout had been different...
