This photo I took in the zoo. 2013. // Фото сделано мной в зоопарке. 2013 год.
In one of my last blog posts I published some photos of animals at the zoo, I feel that it is wrong. I recently changed my opinions about circuses, zoos, sea worlds and so on. Just sometimes you don't think about some things. I was very influenced by the documentary "Blackfish".
I think it's not necessarily going to the zoo or circus for entertainment. Especially it's not very fun to look at the sad hungry animals. I become sad when I look at animals in a cage. I understand them. And you would have been happy if you were spen all life in a cage? Animals become aggressive because of this and show their aggression in humans. If you want to learn more in detail how many accidents (including deaths) occurred with the trainers and orcas, I advise you to watch "Blackfish".
I once had a desire to visit the show of orcas or dolphins, to swim with a dolphin. Now I don't think I want it. I don't want to get involved in all this. Make animals do what they really don't want to do.
At the same time keep the animal as a pet for me is quite another. After all, it's even better for some animals. For example, I've heard that cats can't exist without the help of people. So it is so important to take care of our little friends. All good and evil is returned back to us.
Here are some photos of animals that are free, what I found. What could be sweeter?
