Large cat breaks out of San Francisco Zoo "PRISON" and is killed,
proving once again wild animals aren't commodities but sentient beings that belong in their natural habitats

All I can say is I'm sorry one person died but the San Francisco Zoo SHOULD LEARN FROM THIS. About 12 years ago on a one day trip to SF As I never go to zoo prisons did have time and thought I would stop by. I saw birds in larger glass enclosures then wild cats, some poor monkeys half mad and as I made my way around I was shocked and sickened to see a black panther cat pacing back and forth back and forth back and forth with a dull white flaked coat looking awful.

In the wild these beautiful black cats coat is sleek and shiny. I became so ill in seeing this that I left this prison right after but not before I went to make a complaint to the office.

When back in NY I wrote them about the small enclosures for display cats as when not on display the enclosures are even worst iron prisons, that wild cats are forced into for their entire unnatural lifetimes. My letter was ignored.

This cat can be a teacher to them that money should be used to LEAVE ANIMALS ALONE PROTECTED AS BEST AS POSSIBLE IN THEIR NATURAL STATE. THEY ARE NOT FOR THE AMUSEMENT OF HUMAN ANIMALS TO GAPE AT THEM IN UNNATURAL PRISONS. WHAT CAN ONE LEARN FROM SUCH UNNATURAL MISERY AS THEY COLLECT FUNDS. NOTHING THEY ARE NOT FOR OUR AMUSEMENT AND FOR PROFIT.

REST IN PEACE BIG CAT YOUR UNNATURAL LIFE OF MISERY IS OVER...

Editors note: The only time it is acceptable to keep wild animals in confinement, and I mean habitat friendly confinement, not a cage, is when the species is about to become extinct due to humans killing or hunting them. When the animals begin to reproduce and become abundant they are then released back to their natural habitat. At this time laws should be in place forbidding the hunting/killing of said animals and serious repercussions should apply to anyone breaking the law.
