Unethical Zoo’s (graphic)

Even though there are millions of animals that have already lost their lives for the human food chain, unethical Zoo’s continue to support the unnecessary breeding and killing domestic rabbits to feed to their captive wild animals (wolves, snakes, dragons, cheetahs, big and small cats) as TREATS.

“A couple of weeks ago, Leigh and I put Damai’s rabbit up on a tree limb. Each of the various cats in the Zoo get a rabbit for dinner on Mondays, big ones for lions and tigers, small ones for smaller cats such as caracals and fishing cats. The rabbits arrive frozen from a supplier that specializes in prey animals for exotic species. We thought that putting a favorite treat in a difficult to reach place would make it even more exciting.”

This rabbit does not appear to have been frozen however; when reported to the local Humane Society and investigation could not prove if the rabbit was alive or dead.

Zoo’s also provide paid feeding tours so that families and small children can watch the domestic rabbits be torn apart and eaten.

Despite the warning, most in the crowd were children, who got all the best spots in the front.

Snakes are fed on weekly and not on daily basis. Python is served a live rabbit every week and other snakes are given parts of cow’s stomach.
