This is the height of human barbarity against a zoo animal. It’s about as low as humankind can get in their relationship with animals when they hack off the claws of a young lioness at a Palestinian zoo (Rafa Zoo, Gaza). The reason? So visitors can play with the lion without being scratched. It is totally sick and I say damn these people. Damn them to everlasting purgatory at the end of their days.
You know what they used to remove the lioness’s claws? They used shears after pulling a shroud over her head and sedating her. The whole thing is utterly bizarre as well as sick. After all, the lioness has teeth so how they think they can make the lioness safe to play with by simply hacking off her claws is beyond my imagination.
Perhaps they’re going to hack off her teeth as well. The park’s owner is Mohammed Jumaa. He justified the barbaric mutilation by saying that he was:
“Trying to reduce the lion’s aggressiveness!”
I’m sorry Mohammed but you are liable to make the cat even more aggressive because of the pain she suffers and because she will compensate by biting more. You are a complete idiot and you should be vilified by everyone who reads your ghastly story.
The zoo insists that the procedure didn’t hurt the cat. Good for you, guys. If it didn’t hurt the cat then let’s try it on you. Let’s chop of the end of your fingers and see whether you feel pain. How about that?
Sometimes, like many others, I despair at the behaviour of humankind. Collectively there is a mass of gross ignorance. Mohammed is a grossly ignorant individual. In a better world the zoo would be shut down. Mohammed the fool would be unemployed and the lioness in the first place would not be in captivity but roaming the wide open plains of perhaps the Serengeti in Africa. Shame on you all who have shamelessly abused this magnificent animal.
