Today we went to the Zoo..
I have such mixed feelings about the Zoo and every visit is always bittersweet. On one hand, I hate seeing the animals in small, unsatisfying enclosures, I don't like seeing the big cats overweight and out of shape, and I really don't like seeing animals pace their fences. On the other hand, I just love watching animals interact. Also, if it wasn't for Zoos, children wouldn't be able to see animals up close at a young age and instill that passion for living creatures and nature. And then even if some of us chose to boycott the zoo, it still wouldn't get shut down and just end up having a smaller budget for taking care of the animals. So with that said, I begrudgingly share these few pictures.. (Since I can't help but take them!)
