Last week i visited a zoo in our country. While we enjoying by watching the animals some persons throwing the stone on the animal and make them angry and the enjoy the angry of the animal. Why they are acting like this?. If we got wounded we are crying and immediately going to the hospital and cure it. Where animals should go?

it is human nature to see others happy and also unhappy. we want our close people to be happy. similarly we want our distant people to be not happy. similarly animals which are kept away from us--we feel happy in teasing them. animals were in forests. we have taken away their forests for our residence. so animals are at our mercy nowadays.

may be. But i don't think it is the right answer. Teasing is a bad thing. If we tease students then it will become as a crime. why the rule is not applicable to animals.

hello rules are there to prohibit torture to animals. Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act is there. That is why many times circuses are not conducted because animals are exposed to torture there. true in zoos people should not tease them. many times they offer eatbles to animals which is also not advisable.

Doing that to animals should be considered animal abuse and violators should be punished just as if they were doing that to another person. These animals in the zoo have already been taken out of their natural habitat sometimes for us to gawk at sometimes to keep them from becoming extinct they should never be mistreated. Look at it this way if you had your baby in a playpen and people came over to visit and were looking at it you would not want anyone to throw toys at it. It is just the same these animals depend on humans do not mistreat them or go to jail. That is just the way I feel; animals should have rights too. They are living and breathing and they do have feelings too. People who do that should be put in a cage and let us throw rocks at them and see how it feels.

Already animals are feeling in a jail environment. We want freedom in our activities but the same thing we are not giving to animals. We always put them in cage and enjoy the movement with our teasing habbits.

i feel very bad, when i see such incidents, that is not right at all, imagine, what if one day the animals and birds on earth asked a wish to God ,to show the people on earth how they feel and suffer when we treat them, and He granted them, what is our situation , what can we do? then the people can understand the suffering of the poor creatures. Any ways we should realize, it, God has given us, the knowledge , we should not misuse it.

They are not understanding the poor creatures feelings. That's why they are making the mistakes. Some people rectify it and others never comprise with it.

Hi, Some people become happy by giving trouble to others. `I think the people throwing stones on the animals in the zoo are of such type. They have the fun in doing this. They don't care about others feelings or the animals. They are very cruel and selfish. They are always think about their happiness.
