This Zoo in China Puts Visitors in Cages and Lets Animals Roam Free

As a child, I never liked zoos or circuses because I couldn’t understand what was so fun in watching caged and humiliated animals.

There’s been much debate on the animal captivity lately, and it makes sense why – keeping wild creatures in cages i
