How I Feel About Zoos

I went to the LA Zoo over the weekend. It was fun, but I find zoos bittersweet and emotionally confusing. Here are the three basic categories of animals at zoos:

1. Animals whose normal routine is really not thrown off by being in a zoo.

2. Animals that are confused or undecided about the whole "being in captivity" thing.

3. Animals that really shouldn't be in zoos because they are intelligent enough to know what's going on.
