[oc] I was already iffy about zoos but after taking this shot I don't think I want to go anymore

Reddit won't let me reply to as many comments as I'd like, so I just want to say a big thank you to all the comments educating me on the good that a lot of zoos do! I'll be checking out the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and other similar resources to find the zoos that do great conservation and educational work to help these animals healthy and happy and most importantly; alive.

Unfortunately it seems the zoo I was at is not accredited with them and does generally have a bad reputation (won't name them though just in case), but I'm definitely excited to get back home to Canada and visit some local zoos to chat with them and to learn more about the great work they do to take care of these animals.

Can always counts on reddit keep you in check. Thanks my dudes. Except for the foul-mouthed inbreds that do so in a much less kind manner in the dms. Those douche canoes can kindly continue to fuck off ❤
