...in der betäubt ein großer Wille steht. - Threshold
...she walked in through the out door.
...in der betäubt ein großer Wille steht.
Der Ausbruch war wunderbar werbewirksam.
Heini Hediger, Wildtiere in Gefangenschaft - ein Grundriss der Tiergartenbiologie, Basel 1942

Walton Ford - Der Pantherausbruch
1934 a black panther escaped from Zurich's zoo. He survived 10 weeks
during the Swiss winter until he was killed by a hungry labourer.

The animal pictures of American artist Walton Ford (b. 1960) resemble the natural science illustrations of former centuries. The captions explain the story, inspired by travelogues and old science books. 

Their content is always sinister, exposing ambush, destruction, human perversion and the struggle for freedom, mostly in vain, cruel agony as the result.

Hätte sich dieses Ereignis (Zürich 1934) zu Rilkes Lebzeiten abgespielt ...

Interessantes Gedankenspiel. Rilkes Gedicht entstand gut drei Dekaden früher. Bleibt die Frage, ob Walton Ford Rilkes Verse kennt...
