It is, unfortunately, no surprise that the reality of life for zoo animals is often very far from what we would like to imagine. As children, many of us went to zoos to watch and admire all the animals that we would never have a chance to see in real life – after all, we visited zoos because we loved animals and wanted to see them up close. But, in reality, we often make a huge disservice to those very animals by buying tickets to these facilities.

Animals in zoos are often kept in captivity for no reason other than profit and paltry entertainment, although zoos may call this “conservation.” And, let’s face it, zoo animals are rarely happy and often they do not receive the care they require and deserve. Sometimes we are reminded of it very brutally – like in the case of Suzi the elephant.

According to a petition on Care2Suzi was one of the animals kept at the Lahore Zoo in Punjab, Pakistan. She was brought to the zoo in 1992 when she was six years old. Because of a shortage of funds, and the unavailability of other African elephants, she was forced to live her life completely alone. Suzi died on May 132017 – when she was only 32 years old. The natural lifespan of an elephant is around 60-70 years.

From the day Suzi arrived at the zoo to the moment of her untimely death, she never saw, let alone interacted with another elephant. During her last three days, Suzi was unable to sit and was kept standing for almost 98 hours. When she finally managed to sit down, it was only to take her last breath. The zoo’s administration did not disclose postmortem reports.

Suzi’s heartbreaking story is another reminder for us all that wild animals are not meant to live in captivity – which is something that you would think seems obvious given the tragic end to countless captive animals. Since the existence of most zoos has nothing to do with animal conservation and their educational factor is also entirely debatable, it’s time we stopped to rethink our support of those places.

In the light of what happened to Suzi due to the Lahore Zoo’s mistakes in taking care of the animal, the establishment clearly should not be trusted with another elephant. Click here to sign a petition against the Lahore Zoo owning another member of the species!

I really appreciate your inputs on my situation Dr happy and what could I do with-out you. Thank you in advance.
I was in a relationship with this guy for the past 1 and a half year.. We became close real fast and were very serious about each other… he’s German and was in the country for her internship.. he left after first 6 months and came back after a couple of months.. he said that he had come down for me.. WE started living – in.. We discussed faMILY, KIDS, future, moving to EU together.. everything was going good until of last August when I started to get jealous about his moves, I got controlling and things started to get worse.. we spoke about it a lot of times where he expressed how he felt but I was not able to understand why I was doing that.. During our discussion I would always say I did .. This February he called it off and since then I have been a mess.. I gave it a lot of thought and realised my mistakes and why I was doing it.. I tried talking to him .. begged him.. pleaded him .. but he says that he has lost all his feelings for me and would never get back to me..I was in my knees praying looking for help, them i fine a comment online how a spell caster help to restored relationship get ex lover back, ” so i decided to give a try coz i love my boyfriend so much. so i contacted Dr happy http://happyspelltemple.webs.com/ tell him all my problem and he gave me 100%guarantee that i will have my boyfriend back after the spell so i was gifted and lucky to have contacted him i did every thing he ask of me and to my greatest surprise a day after the spell my boyfriend call me and apology for what he did to me and ask for my forgiveness to come back again for me, we both are happily living together again plz Contact him urgently via.........
