I recently had the opportunity to hang out at Calgary Zoo, also home to a wide range of very life-like dinosaurs.
I always feel guilty visiting zoos, given that the enclosures are so pathetic compared with the size of a comfortable habitat for creatures in the wild. Keeping animals in captivity is just cruel, no matter how one spins the benefits of zoos. If all zoos closed tomorrow, it would be a good thing.
That said, there’s not much else to do or see in Calgary, and I figured a personal boycott wouldn’t amount to much. Hence, I have some pretty neat photos of the captive species, as well as the dino-statues. Enjoy.
