    You see the problem? Humans are trying to keep animals alive who nature deems to die. Nature isnt resilient we made that animal live That hippo needs to be surviving on it's own in nature period. Nature is always right. Nature messed up when it made stupid creatures to interfere with its work. Most humans are as dumb as animals. Their behavior proves this

    If aliens ever conquer, enslave, and stuff us in zoos, I hope they are this caring and benevolent. I would welcome new overlords in that scenario.

    Maybe she needed to be with her mom. Instead of a bunch of weird humans. Everything about zoos are how the slave masters would tear the black babies from their parents. It's the exact same protocol used to this day.
