Hooray for the Circus?

Cages will cross into city

Stench from all these mobile cells

Deny soap, giving no pity,

Evil, why make sleep in short spells,

During each trip huddled on floor

Re-crossing border just crossed days before.

    It’s heartbreaking the way wild animals are treated over there. You are so right to bring it to our attention. It used to happen here too, but thankfully no more.
    I used to be unhappy about the zoo too, but these days more and more of these places are about breeding programs for endangered species.

      In zoos – or rather nature sanctuaries – too, there is a case to be made for preserving wildlife found injured or orphaned, or rescued, and unlikely to make it in the wild. Cages are simply not on.
