I said on my previous post that we shouldn’t support #Zoos
as they lock up numerous #Animals
for no reason whatsoever and justify it with #CONservation
lies. Images like this prove that #CapivityIsCruel
as this #Bear
is suffering unimaginably. He belongs in the wild.
What possible reason can a #Zoo
have for locking up bears? Monkeys? Meerkats? Mountain lions? Birds and clipping their wings so they can’t fly away? None of these animals are #Endangered
. Learn to see through all the lies.
If a zoo happens to do 1% genuine conservation work, does that justify the 99% #AnimalCruelty
? If a zoo plans to rehabilitate and release one species of animal, does that justify locking up 5000 other species for no reason at all who will never be released and only exist for humans to pay to gawk at? #WakeUp
Our pleasure should never be at the expense of somebody else’s pain. Please see bears in the wild or not at all as this is wrong.
