I’m not a very big fan of zoo’s or aquariums.
And neither are the animals that have been captured and live there.
You know what?
The animals are finally acting out about their distaste for being on display in captivity:
Polar bear: “You people destroy my homeland, take me away from it, and now want to gawk at me all day long. Well, take a look at this…”
Read on for more crazy (and gross) videos of the animal union taking a stand against being on display.
Animals On Display
I know, I know, some people will say that we have zoo’s and aquariums so we can experience animals from other parts of the world, or because they were an endangered species, or because their natural habitat was being destroyed, or some other pseudo-glamorous reason.
But for me, it just makes me sad. If we didn’t hunt them to extinction or destroy their natural habitats in the first place, they wouldn’t need to be “rescued” (if you can call living out their lives as prisoners, essentially, salvation).
Have you ever looked into a lion’s eyes at the zoo? They look like their soul has died.

Have a great weekend, and maybe try taking a simple step towards living greener this weekend.
Start a recycling program. Plant some fall veggies. Enjoy the nice fall weather and ride your bike or walk to the store for football game snacks. Every little step counts…no matter what the nay-sayers tell you.
I think every little step toward living green is an awesome one… but eco-snobbery sucks! My goal is to help newbies learn the most important steps toward living green — individually and collectively. Personally, I strive to have as little impact as possible on Planet Earth while I'm here.
