“Humanity’s true moral test, its fundamental test…
consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals.”


~ Milan Kundera ~

    Yes! Cannot visit zoos, not even the best in the world. Wanted to be a veterinarian growing up. Suffering of the vulnerable is unbearable: kids and animals.

    • Thank you Niriha, I feel the same way. I wish all zoos and circuses with animals and “sea worlds” would be forbidden. Animals who have committed no offense are cruelly imprisoned…
