There are a lot of tree hugging do gooders that claim zoos should be banned for caging up wild animals. This short video demonstrates how wrong this class of people can be. While living in Oregon I visited the Oregon Zoo 200 days out of every calendar year. I logged nearly 1,000 visits in all, photographing every animal in their wonderful collection. The zoo’s policy of stray, orphans and injured animal was heartwarming. They embraced an opportunity to save an animal’s life and even though permanently injured they gave them a safe comfortable life.
The video I’ve attached below is such an example. This orphaned cougar cub stood no chance of survival on his/her own. Someone brought the cub to the Oregon Zoo the rescued cub knowing it would get only the best of care. Bravo for those involved in conservation!
