Gathered under the hashtag . Under the hashtag, thousands of people showed their reflection by sharing images showing the impact of these organizations on animals.
Deplorable images again, zoos again:
In one of the images, which had the greatest share in the avalanche of the reflections, the movements of a bear who lived in the zoo all his life after being released into nature caught the eye. The bear paced, just like in the zoo, in this new environment to which he was not accustomed. In another image 10 years living alone in a pool orca (killer whale) Kiska attempted suicide by banging her head against the glass. The reflections of these images, which cannot make you feel anything other than pain and anger while watching, still continue to come on Twitter. Here are some of these posts:
