I totally agree with you! It's very sad to see a wild animal kept in captivity
for human amusement- seems so uncivilized and cruel!
The snowleopard's native habitat is far up in the snow covered mountains. How
humane is it to keep an animal like this in 100-degree weather? An elusive,
secretive animal that seeks solitude and cold temperatures is in the middle of a
display in Salt Lake City. Sure, it's great to see it, but you could go online
and see photos and these animals wouldn't have to be miserable. I saw the news
coverage and the mother just panted and panted. Cats don't generally pant. And
here's her little cub out for the first time and there are people at the glass
viewing window all over the place. The poor mother has to be dealing with some
terrible anxiety. Zoos should be abolished. Animals should be protected in
their native habitat and human beings should stop being so selfish as to want to
use them as something to keep and look at. How selfish. I wish this poor
mother and her little one the best.
This is really a sweet picture. I love Cats and I love this photograph. Deseret
News always has the best animal photo's. Thanks :)
I think that is so great! The little cub is so cute!
The cub will most likely stay with its mother for about a year or so and then
get sent to another zoo for breeding
i hope he stays in the hogle zoo and they dont send him off to another zoo
Check out the Zoo web site. They have a little pic of him.
We want a picture!!
Shy and elusive. No photo!
