Dr John and I took our grandkids to the zoo this afternoon. This zoo has many animals a number of endangered ones. I felt sad at the animals in cages, camels, bear, lions and tigers plus more monkeys than the Milwaukee Zoo. There was one white bird there that I read the description about. In the wild it is a social bird and is usually in a flock of 40. It sat in that cage all by itself. The children enjoyed the animals,so I am torn. It is nice for the children to see animals that they would never get to see,but animals that roam to be cooped in such a small unnatural area seems cruel. I like it at Disney where they are able to roam about, but you may not get to see them. Disney of course has more money. I know that the more modern zoos have the animals not in cages.
We did get a chance to eat with my daughter at lunch as she was on her way to an appointment and went by a McDonalds close to the zoo.
I am going to close now because I have grandkids waiting for this computer to play Roller Coaster.
