At zoos, the animals will be broken until the moment they die and bonding wonít be happening through a glass window or a fence or with anyone who is part of the cause of their misery.

One of the many broken gorillas at the Fort Worth Zoo in Texas. They have to deal with gawking moronic eyes and loud obnoxious banging on the glass all day.

People come to the zoo to have fun, itís as simple as that. People donít go to Sea World because they want to support orca conservation and people donít go to zoos because they want to support gorilla conservation - they go because they want to be pleased.

Thereís no bonding with animals at zoos, thereís no seeing what these animals are naturally like at zoos and thereís almost no useful learning that takes place at zoos. Zoos teach us that we can do as we please with the animal kingdom, as long as there is some benefit to be had for us.

If you want to know what animals like gorillas are like there are plenty of nature documentaries you can watch and books you can read without supporting their imprisonment.

If you want to visit animals who are held captive for their own good and arenít suffering from their captivity then visit reputable farm sanctuaries where rescued animals get to express themselves as they please and usually donít suffer from the widespread loneliness and depression you see at zoos. You can bond with animals at sanctuaries and interact with animals who once suffered horrifically but are now doing well and thriving.

Yet at zoos, the animals will be broken until the moment they die and bonding wonít be happening through a glass window or a fence or with anyone who is part of the cause of their misery.
