I went to the London Zoo this morning. I shouldn’t have.
It was an old style zoo. It is clear that they are trying to refurbish some of the exhibits, but there is far too much concrete and steel to make me feel that the animals are at home.
The lowlight? A sloth bear who was trying to escape, trying to hide. He curled up against a steel door to the inside enclosure, as if to say, “let me in! Get me away from the people!”.
The day will likely look up from there.
