1. Those tigers look thin.

2. Zoos are fucking stupid.

3. Capturing wild animals and using them for human entertainment is a super shitty thing to do.

4. This is not cool.

This is abuse and horrible.  Zoos are prisons.

Some zoos only take old animals to where they are given an easy life. Their maintenance is funded by people coming into the zoo.

Those tigers are not thin.

"Zoos are fucking stupid" wow such science you sold me

They weren’t captured for this purpose, they probably weren’t captured at all, it’s called rescuing. 

This is cool.

This is not abuse, it’s actually exercise if you think about it.

Zoos are not prisons. Zoos allow us to rescue animals, research them, and protect them from hunters and the dangers that we, as humans, impose on them.

I’m so done with all the shit about zoos on my fucking dash. 

Zoos literally save animals every day so why don’t you do your freaking research.

This comment is perfect^

Animals come to zoos as a result of 

  • being born captive
  • getting injured in the wild and rescued to live a healthy life in captivity
  • being rescued from black market dealers, private collectors, or the like who decide that they can no longer care for the animals or who had been illegally keeping the animals
  • being in a breeding program to increase their numbers because the animal is endangered in the wild

If you knew anything about tigers at all, you’d know that they are endangered in the wild due to poaching and hunting. It is of utmost importance that their numbers increase, or they will go extinct within the next fifty years. I don’t know what zoo this is so I don’t know their reputation, but the tigers look healthy, and this tug-of-war is good for them because some animals get stressed in zoos when they are bored. This isn’t solely to entertain zoo guests, it is to give the tigers something fun to do.

Zoos do not snatch animals from the wild without a good reason. If you want to protest animal captivity, go to SeaWorld and protest the orcas being kept there, they are far too large to belong in such cramped spaces and they are solely kept for entertainment.

Thank you and good day.

ALSO ITS NOT LIKE THEY’RE FORCING THE TIGERS TO GRAB THE ROPE, THE TIGER WANTS TO PLAY

Tigers play just like domestic cats play with each other, this is for the educational benefit of the visitors and the enrichment benefit of the tigers. Also word to the comment above. Tigers are endangered to the point that they cannot repopulate themselves in the wild, they need the help of captive institutions like zoos, where they live carefree lives free of stress and can breed and birth without fear that other predators and mating competitors will come along and eat their cubs.

Furthermore, these tigers are NOT thin. In fact, one of the ones in the large group looks borderline obese. People who know nothing about animals need to stop talking about animals.

Boosting the shit out of this because I’m so damn tired of whiney morons (who probably never get outside) bitching about animal’s rights when they really have no fucking clue.

DO YOUR GODDAMN HOMEWORK.

ALL OF EVERYTHING IN THIS COMMENTARY

LMAO man, like, zoos used to be terrible but that was ages ago. And sure, there are still shitty zoos tucked away in various places, but for real. Most major zoos nowadays are pretty awesome and are actually doing important work for conservation.

The Zombie Of St Augustine Florida

In the early morning hours of December 12th, 1963, a man and his wife were awakened by the screams of their nineteen-year-old. They raced down the hall into her bedroom. Their daughter had been lying on her bed when she saw someone at her open window. When the teenager approached, she saw a man whose eyes were sunk in and his gums were pulled back from his teeth.

The grotesque man was attempting to crawl into her room. The teenager said that he stank so bad that she could hardly keep from throwing up. The girl slammed the window on one of his arms and it came off at the elbow, falling into the room with her. When her father got into the room, he watched the man stagger off down the street toward a nearby wooded area. A neighbor across the street ran outside after hearing the girl’s screams and he saw the man as well.

The police were called and they spent the rest of the night searching for the man described by the terrified family. At daylight the next morning, the man was finally found. Minus one arm, the dead body was discovered in the woods, about a half mile from where he had attempted to enter the girl’s room the previous night.

The body was identified as a 61-year-old male who had died five years ago, who owned the house where the man and woman now lived with their daughter. The police investigated the incident and went to the local graveyard.  It appeared like someone had dug their way up and out of the grave.

When the local medical examiner looked at the body, the fingernails were caked with dirt, like he had been digging through the soil. The man was also missing a finger, which was later recovered from the cheap cardboard coffin the man had been buried in. Officially, the local police said someone, or possibly several people, had dug the man up as a prank and placed the body in the woods. They would never admit that the man had walked back to his previous home on his own. 

Police claimed it was a prank, but the witnesses to the incident that night said that not only had the dead man been walking, but that he was also growling. How this could have been possible, no one can say. Ghost tour operators on ghost tours in St. Augustine Florida claim the story is true.
