For many people, especially children, the zoo is the only place where you can see real animals that live in the wild around the world.
Therefore, family outings or school field trips to the zoo are very popular. Common learning about the animals, their habits, what they eat and how they live, is certainly very instructive. And very interesting, especially for children who are fascinated by nature and the joy of meeting animals. Even smaller cities try to create places where children are able to meet outdoor critters.
However, as it turns out, not all children are interested in exploring nature. We do not know what drives children to exhibit such great cruelty despite their young age. It scares everyone, as we associate children with purity and good beings who stretch a helping hand to every creature. They bring home mice and hedgehogs found in the forest. It seems that cruelty to animals is the domain of adults,or people without feelings.
Unfortunately, this is not always the case, and you’ll find this out on the next page.
