This one really isn't 'Kickass' but it creates a perfect opportunity to reiterate ;
**** CIRCUSES AND ZOOS.
edit ; some people are asking why i hate zoos.
i'd like to start this off by saying I know this fact is talking about the mistreatment of an elephant. I know zoos do not treat their animals like circuses do (for the most part - can't speak for zoos in more questionable areas of the world) , so my opinion on zoos is not based on this fact. just my personal opinion.
but i hate them because, aside from the animals there that are either endangered or unable to survive in the wild, they take animals and basically put them in jail for near the rest of their lives for the entertainment of others.
I support this opinion by inviting you to imagine being taken out of your home, put in a cage and left there to walk in circles in a mock version of your home while another species stares at you all day.
I'm pretty sure that would be very unpleasant for you. I believe that animals feel the same way.
I can't imagine any healthy animal would choose to be in a zoo.
My feelings just come from how that animal feels inside. They were not born to walk in circles for entertainment.
I hope this answers your question and I'm open to discussion on this topic.
