Today is depressing. Not sure if its the grey weather holding the proverbial, ‘Spring carrot’ from us or it could be reading this story first thing in the morning pre-coffee. After reading that article, my first thought is “WTF is wrong with people?” I guess I’ve reached my limit for hearing about sexist, misogynistic, backwards places where this happens FAR too often! The punishment for the asshole who did this to her, didn’t satisfy me either, because as she mentioned he received painkillers before being blinded and she had to give up the financial compensation she received! But then again, I usually disagree with this ‘eye for an eye’ form of punishment. I think prison with very hard labor and a full apology with financial compensation from the perpetrator himself would be better.
This was another story that made me sad, even though the title is kinda funny. Why is it so depressing ? Well, it just made me think that maybe the monkeys are throwing things at people because their just plain fed up with living in a box where hairless apes gawk at them all damn day! I know if I was them, I would be planning a revolt! LOL.
“But they get free food and shelter and will probably live longer than out in the wild” you might argue.
But y’know what? Their wild animals and shouldn’t have to live in a prison cell for the rest of their lives, no matter how many free bananas they get out of it! I’m not against zoos per say, they’ve saved many species from extinction and provide rehabilitation to the sick and injured, what bugs me is that humans are rapidly forcing every other species to live in these man made structures so we can spread in number and kill their environments.
I just worry in the future there will be no more wildlife and forests, only concrete kingdoms and man-made parks and zoos. Does anyone else worry about this? Is there no way we can have a peaceful coexistance with animals?
Anyway, now for some happier news. The picture in this post is taken from Metro.co.uk. This baby monkey was adopted by a white dove and now the two are inseperable. Aren’t they a cute pair?
