a few weekends ago i visited a local zoo and for the first time in a long time i felt bad for the animals behind the cages. it was that bad. normally i am not bothered much by caged animals if they are being well taken care of and are not more depressed than the humans who visit. the animals were not interested and some didn’t even bother with keeping up appearances.
seriously, the zoo was a mess and the animals were lifeless. several times people wondered if the animals were real or stuffed. it’s really bad when one can hold out food to an animal at the zoo and it will hold up a sign back saying: no thanks or in the case of the bird up top giving peeps the i’m gonna git you sucka look.
