When was the last time the MIGHTY tiger roamed freely under the open sky?
What is the SLEEK leopard from sunny India doing in FREEZING England?
How will the HUGE rhinoceros stay in a SMALL, cramped cage?
And why, oh why, is the ENORMOUS elephant eating tiny BUNS in the zoo?
Leopards and cheetahs, bears and antelopes, monkeys and deer...it's the same SORRY tale. These animals from India have been CAGED for the amusement of people – to be prodded and poked and teased!
It's upsetting. It's shocking. It's breaking our hearts.
What are we to DO?
Well, we have written letters – a whole SHEAF of them – to the owners of menageries and the zoo, asking them to STOP this cruelty NOW. To give the animals the food, the care and the freedom they deserve.
But ARE they reading them?
