30 Days of Pictures: Day 15

A Picture of Something You Want to Do Before You Die

See one of these...in the wild!

 A little background to this story:  Some friends and I went to the Cairo Zoo with some Egyptian friends.  I guess Egyptians aren't as big into animal ethics as Americans are so lots of what we saw was horrifying.  When we saw the lions, some zoo keepers grabbed us and pulled us into this back room where a big lion was in a tiny cage and they kept poking it with sticks until it roared.  It was pretty terrible.


Oh, and don't forget...

oh my...that is really sad. We saw the same thing in Russia- huge bears in small cages or baby bears on leashes...uh its sad to think about. But do you really want to see a lion in real life without a cage in between you????
You can come here and you might see a mountain lion up in the hills. Actually a few have been seen in Berkeley just walking through the neighborhoods- which is kind of crazy.
