Where are the Greens?

This weekend some friends of mine from Latvia came to see me here in Tallinn. As this was the second time they were here, naturally enough that there was no sense in showing off the city once more as if they had not seen the views already! So, I decided we could go to the Tallinn Zoo.

Guys, if you like and care for animals - don't go to this zoo! :( Of course, all of the world's zoos are some kind of prison to animals, but this is a sweatbox! Just imagine - a polar bear living in a cage not bigger than my room (and my room is not big) with masonry walls from 3 sides and the bars from the fourth. The ground is from concrete. And the only "amusement" is a pool of 3x2 metres with stinky water.
And the same with tigers, monkeys, foxes and others.

And how can we dear to call ourselves superior from everything alive?

Last time I went to a Zoo was Korkeasaari in Helsinki. I left there feeling sad. Even though most of the animals had decent place to live you could still see how many of them simply don't feel well. Especially the tigers.

You're absolutely right! But the difference between these two zoos is that in Helsinki the places at least seem decent for animals to live in, but in Tallinn they call up for an animal ghetto :(
