So here's the thing: my husband and I plan a trip to a zoo a couple of hours away maybe once every 5 years. We're planning on going tomorrow and suddenly I'm not sure how I feel about it. Yikes--going vegan started out to be all about food for me, because I was vegetarian for 26 years, I was already hip to the plight of animals--or so I thought. I had no idea that changing my diet would change ME so much. It's strange and something I should ponder and write more about.
I've always enjoyed going to this zoo. It's a "nice" one--enclosures so big that one isn't guaranteed to even see the animals, I don't know,,,,I'm really surprised at my feelings about this.
The truth is we'll go and I'll see how I feel. My husband is very understanding [he went vegan too, bless him!] and won't freak if we drive 2 hours and I end up telling him that i just can't do it.
I do know that I absolutely can't support those zoos with little enclosures or cages, so I'll not be frequenting those ever again.
Has this post even made any sense? I'm just kind of thinking it out here. What do you think? Do you visit zoos?
