It’s wrong of course to hate an entire people because of what some do. If everyone did that, everybody would hate everybody, because Japan is not the only country that takes part in animal cruelty.
I’m sorry you have to go through that. Pay no attention to that kind of people. To be honest, it’s usually just their anger talking.
Some zoos do protect endangered species from extinction, that’s true. But it’s still robbing them of their freedom, no?
Do you honestly think that zoos will bring back species from the brink of extinction? Is denying the animals their freedom the only solution? No. It’s avoiding a problem using nothing but cruelty. Avoiding one disaster and causing another.
Yes, they’re not in danger of poachers, starvation, habitat loss, etc., but they’re still stuffed in cages for human entertainment and profit, which is why zoos started in the first place. Zoos are not there to protect animals. Zoos are there for humans to pocket large sums of money, and the imprisoned animals are the ones paying for this.
Where I live, for example, there’s a chimpanzee that has cancer. She’s not getting treatment, and to make matters worse, she’s in a cage (that’s more of a large container than a cage really) and she can barely see out of it. Lions aren’t properly fed and one of them has a huge scar on his face because they’re all constantly harassed by zookeepers with long metal rods. Not to mention harassment by visitors. Then there are the wolves with injuries on them that go untreated. That’s in my country.
Then you have the Copenhagen zoo that killed a healthy giraffe and made a show out of it, and as if that wasn’t if, they killed four lions after that. And that zoo in China where people throw shit like trash and snowballs at the bears for the fuck of it. Then, this has to be mentioned always, Surabaya Zoo. Don’t even get me started on that one.
A zoo is a prison. That’s it.
An employee is piercing puppies and dogs in the store.He has taken photos off his instagram account but several are still left up.He is openly defending his actions and arguing with people trying to get him to stop.I’m not sure of the legal issues involved but feel like this is really cruel and wrong and that surely someone can do something about it.

I’m not sure if this is illegal, but it should be. It’s cruel to do this to an animal. It’s not beneficial to them and it’s done solely for human entertainment. It’s fucking retarded.
I’ll report this. Thanks for your submission.
