What did I do to deserve this...The world needs to wake up and act right by 


As of 6/23/2014..1125 views

I went to the zoo yesterday (10/13/2011). The zoo is one of my favorite places. My favorite animals are there..big cats. This at potawatomi zoo in South Bend, Indiana USA. Shot in black and white with fujifilm finepix S 1000 fd camera. I usually take shots that do not have bars in them, but this to show how the lions get frustraded about being caged up. Too bad our world is full of assholes who want to kill these great animals!!!!!

I love to capture photos of everything. My favorite things to take photos of are nature, fall, and big cats. I hope one day big cats can be free to roam again. They deserve to be free like us.

    Fabulous photograph and your message is to the point. Thank you for bringing this message to masses, who still believe it is OK to keep a wild animal caged

    The UK government is currently voting on banning animal performances in circuses. That is a good thing, it is time we stop this cruelty.
    Let us not forget Zoo’s too, the two words “Good” and “Zoo” just do not go together, from a moral, humane or caring perspective.

    Zoo’s are just another form of Circus, both are a form of ENTERTAINMENT at the cost of the mental and physical welfare of the animal.
    Human’s often forgot they are animals too. How would we love it, if we where enclosed in a small room, thrown food occasional and thrown a mate to produce offspring now and again; then remove the offspring from the parent to sell to another Zoo and call that conservation. Nothing humane about Circuses or Zoo’s, no matter what their PR says. There is more to animal welfare, than throwing them inappropriate food which messes with their dietary requirements; provide inadequate shelter in an unfamiliar and strange environment. Often the young are taken away from the parents and group, which causes deep grieving and stress to the animals, just as it would do to us. The grieving and suffering is now proven, but humans still chose to ignore it, for the purpose of Entertainment

  • I really appreciate that…Glad you feel the same way about these great animals as I do…☺☺☺☺☺☺

    beautiful shot, but I despise zoo’s, these animals who are used to the open expanse of their world where they hunt and continue the circle of life now are captive for human enjoyement how sad! but your work is beautiful.

  • It’s like they are puppets for our amusement…it ticks me off. They deserve to be free. TY Charlena..I really appreciate you taking the time to view this..☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺
