We think that our technology and logical thinking will protect us. But oftentimes, the power and presence of nature overwhelms all of our careful planning. When human beings bring wild animals into a zoo, they think that they have successfully tamed the wild. However, animals routinely break free of their enclosures, attack tourists, and find ways around zoo security.
Although we only see the most extreme cases broadcast on the nightly news, these incidents are common place in cities around the world. Ask any person who has ever worked in a zoo or with wild animals of any kind, and they will tell you. It’s an illusion that human beings have control.
As Jeff Goldblum’s character in Jurrassic Park famously says, “Life finds a way.”
What some of you commenters fail to realize that the majority of these animals were saved. Found either dying or suffering in their natural environment. After they’ve spent so long in rehab, they can no longer survive on their own. Grow up people, do your research.
