There is a battle that goes on every time I step foot in something like a zoo...there is the experience of seeing animals that it is likely I will not see in the wild in my lifetime...and there is the guilt and sadness felt for these animals living in a cage...even if that cage is a big habitat...there are still boundaries...Wild Animals...that are Wild No More.

Travis, you really captured the sense of captive sadness with the lighting, the B&W exposure, and the grim expression on the subject's face. Well done!

Thanks for taking the time to look and comment. I sat and watched the few males that were out and about that early in the morning, and they all seemed to have a defeated look to them, only this male was moving around, and it seemed to do so in a way that made me think, this poor animal of the jungle has moped around this habitat in the same pattern for who knows how long...it made me sad and the animals expression felt the same as mine...

You just feel sad for captive animals, and then they're dwindling habitat in the Wild.

Interesting you mention Harambe...this was shot at Animal Kingdom, part of Disney...the fake African village that this part of the park is set in...is named Harambe Market...

In some ways everyone is a "captive" in some way. These poor creatures more so than us. Here in the DC area had a bobcat escape the Natl Zoo and DC went into complete "lockdown". "Ollie" recon'd the human world and returned to the zoo. Heh 3 squares, nobody shooting at me, a photo op......while sad and terrible to me and them...is it really safer outside?? But my heart saddens for these beautiful creatures. I say let's turn them all loose and let THEM decide who stays or goes.
Excellant Travis.

It certainly would be interesting, but to turn them loose in an urban environment when their natural habitat is anything but urban...I think they would all return to what they know...and most were probably born in captivity, and don't know life as a wild animal, they would survive like a domestic animal would if let loose....
