Zookeepers told me that most animals are locked up inside their cages at night and are only allowed outside when the Zoo is open. These unfortunate animals include elephants, giraffes, tigers, zebras, orangutans, siamangs, sun bears, moon bears and probably more. Warehousing animals for over 16 hours a day in small concrete and steel cages with nothing to do and no natural materials to experience is the worst kind of animal cruelty. I feel terrible that my family’s visit to the Virginia Zoo is supporting the cruel treatment of the animals I love.
