To some, it may come as a surprise that the negative impact of living in captivity can kill wild animals, and zoos often kill innocent animals under the guise of conservation. Many zoos irresponsibly breed animals, often by forcibly impregnating them, and then sell or “loan” out the offspring to other zoos and tourist attractions for hefty sums. Some zoos also practice “zoothanasia,” which is the killing of “surplus” animals who are no longer deemed suitable for breeding. While you might think that these animals need to be bred to increase their global population, in reality, animals born into zoos in no way contribute to their species’ numbers. Animals bred and raised in a captive environment can never return to the wild as they have been trained to rely on people for food and other care. Additionally, zoo animals are often inbred and releasing them to breed with wild populations could result in horrible genetic issues. And then there is the lack of adequate care and enriching natural environments that can cause the premature death of zoo animals as well.

A petition on Care2 explains how the Tierpark Zoo in Berlin is responsible for the death of two infant polar bear cubs who perished in the zoo within ten months. The first cub, named Fritz, died in March 2017 at the age of four months, and the second, who was not named, died early this January at the age of 26 days old.

It is apparent that something is not right at the Tierpark Zoo and the petition’s author would like to see an end to the facility’s polar bear breeding program and have the remaining polar bears sent to a reputable sanctuary. If you agree that the death of more innocent cubs should be prevented by stopping the zoo’s breeding program, please take a moment to sign the petition.

The simplest way to combat the issue of wildlife in captivity is by never supporting zoos or other attractions that exploit animals for a profit. And remember to educate your friends and family on the dangers of captivity by sharing this with them.

My boyfriend and I have been separated for four months now and nothing is happening. He\'s doing nothing.
He was having an emotional affair 3rd time second woman, so he kick me out. We went to relationship counseling twice. he said he needed to go to personal before he would meet us again. In counseling he admitted he loved me but not in love with me.I am beyond devastated. What should I do? And when do you think he will realize he\'s still IN love with me? I need this man to realize I\'m still that girl he met 6 years ago. I\'ve noticed lately in the last couple days he\'s kinda been trying to make me jealous, in a sense of telling me he\'s getting checked out at work, or flexing his muscles in front of me-- I\'m not sure if I should take this as a good sign or not? Every time we have a good day, or I say something about being with him, he always says "we\'ll see". Please help me i began searching for help and answers, then i heard about a man that can Cast a spell to remind him of all the things we have been through together, at first I was scared then i decided to give it a try, and like magic my boyfriend came back, apology and begging for forgiveness, thanks to this man, I’m posting this to help people with similar issues.email him Urgently...
