☆You Are There★
You wake up the next morning in a strange environment. You're laying on a cold concrete floor with many others. You will never see your family again. You will never be the same again...
Life is life--whether in a cat, or dog or man. There is no difference there between a cat or a man. The idea of difference is a human conception for man's own advantage. - Sri Aurobindo

★The Surabaya Zoo in Indonesia☆
WARNING: If you are very sympathetic towards animals please don't read this next part...
"The Surabaya Zoo in Indonesia is called the Zoo of Death, and is a living nightmare for the animals there. It mistreats the animals so terribly, that they don’t even get basic care, nutrition, or proper living conditions. 25 animals die each month from unnatural causes, and most of the other animals are starving."
The picture of these poor tigers to the right and below this text, is one of the many animals that have starved to death at this zoo.
The question is not, "Can they reason?" nor, "Can they talk?" but rather, "Can they suffer?" -Jeremy Bentham
"If I had it my way... there wouldn't be a single lion or tiger in captivity anywhere in the world. They never take to it. They're never happy. They never settle down... You can see it in there eyes." -Hugh Lofting
