TRY TO RELATE TO THEIR FATE: SAY NO TO MILL MOUNTAIN ZOO!!
Send the Animals to Sanctuary
We believe that wild animals belong in their natural habitat and should not be caged for our entertainment.
We believe that wild animals in zoos suffer physically and mentally as their complex social, behavioral and physical needs cannot be met in unnatural humanmade environments. Many animals in zoos show signs of distress, such as pacing or rocking backwards and forwards repeatedly. Experts say that this abnormal behavior is caused by the stresses of being held captive.
Presenting animals to zoo visitors as living exhibits teaches children that animals can be manipulated in order to fulfill our own curiosity about them. It suggest that animals have no right to be treated as individuals who think and feel for themselves. It fails to recognize that animals have their own needs to be met for their own purposes.
