I don’t think I have ever seen anything as pitiable as this sketch by a girl of a tiger crying in a zoo

I don’t think I have ever seen anything as pitiable as this sketch by a girl of a tiger crying in a zoo:

crying tiger

She says she hated going to the zoo after she saw the poor tiger pacing back and forth in its cage. And I am sure she saw tears in its eyes. It is just disgusting and utterly shocking how we as so-called adults are doing everything in our power (and we have far too much of that) to destroy every other living soul on our planet. The feed accompanying this astonishing sketch warns us that Sometimes children are wiser than adults. Not only wiser, but clearly far more in tune with our planet.

The child is father of the man;
And I could wish my days to be
Bound each to each by natural piety.

(William Wordsworth, My Heart Leaps Up)

As for myself I cannot stand zoos, and I believe they should all be banned forever. Here are a few sickening examples why:

composite vile cruelty to animals in zoos

Just who do we think we are? The most intelligent species on planet earth? What a laugh!


Wild life parks with plenty of space for animals to roam in are another story altogether. At least the animals have plenty of room to roam around in. Thank God for small blessings.

Examples are:

Le Parc Oméga, Montebello, Québec, Canada (CLICK photo for lots of lovely pics!):

From time to time, I shall be posting more environmentally sensitive topics here on LBK&M, in spite of the fact that they have nothing to do with Linear A, B or C.

    1. Indeed… but more like horrifying and deeply shocking. Is there no end to human barbarity?


  1. Thanks Richard, this is a subject close to my heart as you must know. Cruelty to animals seems to be rife in all countries and I also object to it most strongly. These humans, if we can call them humans , should, IF caught be treated the same. “LOCKED IN CAGES” and treated the same as animals. I watch several programmes on T.V. where the authorities are trying their best to catch these people but they have a never ending job on their hands. I will re-blog this after your Linear A Lexicon Richard.
