ABC Wednesday - P


P is for Pachyderm. Honestly, I really hate to see these animals stuck in a zoo.

Yeah me too...
I guess zoos are fun for kids, but they usually leave a sour taste in my mouth..

We had an incident at the San Francisco zoo where a big cat got out and attacked the kid who was taunting it... Sad outcome...

We had our own tragedy with the bears the summer before last, where a young man fell from above into the bear enclosure:

When I visited a few days ago that enclosure was empty.

I have misgivings too but fond childhood memories and I guess the best are educational.

I have the same feelings here too. I do like the chance to see the animals closer than I would ever get a chance to otherwise.
Amazing stretch the Pachyderm has.

I love the zoo on one hand but hate to see the animals caged up on the other. They are such amazing creatures!

I know what you mean but this guy (or girl) looks like he's having some fun. Do I see a smile?

That is not the way they should be living.

Feel bad for the animals, too, though sometimes I think they might be safer than in the wild.

This one certainly looks sad.

I agree - elephants are creatures of wide open spaces and deserve better. They must get bored out of their skulls. Still lovely to see them, but I wish they had more space and more to do.

Very original P!

Nothing worse than seeing stupid patrons pelting lions with peanuts through the fence. i hate to see them penned up too - but I love your photo of this elephant.
