This past Friday’s assignment for Photo Friday was “Animals”. Posting late. Better late than never I guess!
This past January took me to our local zool. It’s a beautiful zoo by all accounts, where the animals are extremely well cared for and provided beautiful habitats, but still, zoos make me a more than a little bit uncomfortable. This big fellow especially made me uncomfortable. He is clearly contemplative. He is CLEARLY thinking. While zoos are better than extinction and are great places for learning, I bet this guy hates it in there. There’s simply not enough enrichment that can be provided to animal like him to make up for being captive.
Please leave a link to your entry in comments if you are playing so we can check out your work!
Coming up on Photo Friday:
4th September: Author’s choice: The Wisdom of Age shown in the Face

Then a break as “Author” (creator extraordinaire of Photo Friday) is having surgery. We wish her the best for a good outcome and a quick recovery!
