It breaks my spirit to see a magnificent animal die in pain in front of all those people.
Folks, if you want to see a polar bear, go to the Arctic Circle. Animals aren’t happy in zoos.
I know you’re thinking, “But Lightning, you live in captivity and you’re happy.”
Even as a house pet, I have more freedom than a zoo animal. My owner takes me on frequent trips to the dog park, where I’m able to exercise my innate dominance of the canine kingdom.
I couldn’t live in an enclosure because I wouldn’t be able to be who I am.
