    hi steve

    i am heartbroken over witnessing these creatures, magnificent beings imprisoned. i understand they may even be safer than in the wild and live longer but it just breaks my heart…if only there were another way

    • Steve:

      @Gineen Yeah, I agree. The large cats exhibit is especially heartbreaking. It’s just a bunch of large cats crammed into 10 by 10 prison cages. What’s worse is that many Chinese visitors harass and throw things at the animals.

      I guess I take solace in the fact that those people are always the first ones to get attacked when a large animal escapes the confines of its enclosure.
