Ours qui tourne en rond, gorille qui mange son vomi... Il est temps de fermer les zoos - le Plus

Ours qui tourne en rond, gorille qui mange son vomi... Il est temps de fermer les zoos - le Plus | Animals in captivity - Zoo, circus, marine park, etc.. | Scoop.it

LE PLUS. Après la cohue provoquée par le documentaire "Blackfish", une polémique enfle dans le sud de la France. Le zoo de Fréjus serait mal entretenu et manquerait aux soins des animaux. Est-il temps de fermer nos zoos et autres parcs animaliers ?

Seht Khan's curator insight, March 30, 8:21 PM

  Here is a story of an elephant that was captured and  taken away from her native environment.  This elephant, ironically named patience, had to deal with years of being shipped around the U.S. to many different facilities and had her calf taken from her at an unnaturally young age.  The strain of captivity and being separated from her baby lead her to take the life of her trainer, John Bradford.  

  Not many details are available on the killing, however the article does mention a hook used to abuse the elephants and a disease that is only known to be contracted by captive elephants.
