This is really disgusting. Those poor animals. I shudder to think of what could happen (or should I say will happen?) here someday.

This is one of the reasons I always need to qualify the statement when I tell people I do volunteer work at a zoo. I am a great supporter of some zoos, but definitely not ALL. This is an example of the absolute worst kind. So sad.

Ride a lion and swing a bear cub is all I needed to read. I don't want to look. Very sad.
