Thanks guys and doll .
Even though good zoos seldom (if ever) take animals from the wild any more, and even though good zoos treat their animals much better than ever and provide much-improved habitats for them, still- when I look into the eyes of a great ape, I feel a definite sadness. But then, if it weren't for this zoo, I'd never have seen a gorilla. And- except for zoos in general- most people would never see anything more than a few of their local wild species.
Like most people, I'm conflicted.
As this big guy probably is. But he does have his family with him- even though it was an "arranged" marriage.
