Life Sentence.

Life Sentence.

Hi folks… infrequent posts shall continue for the next 2-3 weeks anyway, I’m afraid.

Taken during a visit to Berlin Zoo… I’m still on the fence over the ethical issues of zoos – sure they protect animals and perform conservation in the wild, however surely no one can deny the cruelty of caging up such a beautiful creature, even if it is for the benefit of the species as a whole.

I dunno … :-(

As far as I’m concerned if they ARE helping the conservation act then great but, to take your photo as a point, I’m not sure lions are on the endangered list.

I think the concept of Safari parks is a little better, at least then these animals have space to move around in if they choose to, watching a tiger pace a tiny holding is heartwrenching for me, much as I love to see such magnificent beasts up close it’s just not fair on them.

She (I’m guessing) certainly looks a forlorn figure. I’m with you in terms of I don’t quite know where I stand on the ethics of it. It is a sad state of affairs though when so little respect is shown for a species or its habitat that incarceation is potentially the best we can do for them. Your image certainly gets you thinking about it though.

Yeah, it’s made me think a bit, for sure…

Hi Alan, not had a look at your site for a couple of weeks and thought i’d check out what you’ve been doing only to see such a sad image. She looks miserable sitting there :(
