Cruelty found in hundreds of zoos and aquariums

Postby Pajarita » Sat Aug 17, 2019 9:54 am

Well, this is no surprise to me as I have known this ever since I worked in a zoo! Terrible places for animals... I took my grandson to the NYC Aquarium in Coney Island because he is fascinated by marine life and they were offering private tours called Wildnerness Encounter: Sharks (he knows A LOT about sharks!) and everything looks good but, personally, I found the 'bubble' aquariums too crowded and the place where they keep the zebra sharks was not much bigger than a bath tub! Why? So people can touch them!
