He was rescued

He was rescued...
But he wasn't free...

A rescued leopard struggle's in a squeeze cage... For space... Literally! For he was stuck there for space and in between two cages with other leopards. The other two terrorized this young leopard as they were residents there for a lot longer...
Often I wonder if it would be just better to let go of a conflict animal instead of trapping it's body and spirit. Often this notion of a zoo, orphanage or a shelter are triggered solely by the human sentiment of sympathy or compassion. But it is at the cost of the animal's spirit.
We have long altered the course of nature as a superior species with the capability of changing things. But have we taken it too far for nature to cope up?
These zoos or shelters ideally are meant to educate. But that's the last thing that is practiced in them. For a visit to such place is solely recreational in today's times. And if they are serving the purpose then, why torture the animal.
I have closely seen the animal rescue market. Yes, I call it a market, because very rarely do they address an issue with the point to solving a problem. And then I wonder if they are scared to solve the animal problem as they would then be out of business?
I recently shot this image and was saddened by the state of the animals. For I saw this leopard and it's state, I saw male Pandas stuffed in a fancy enclosure and all they did was mark their scent on every place the other males marked theirs only to do this all day long, a Himalayan Vulture in a cage smaller than my bathroom, animals drinking water from tourist water bottles as their enclosures remained ignored and many other victims like these...

I know the lobby will term this post a rant but it is an opinion I shall still express...
