They enjoyed a little freedom for a while.Now they are back in their cages to entertain mindless zoo spectators.'

I lived through one tornado and that sure was enough for me---horrible violence. My heart goes out to all those affected by the last tornados.

Sad for the animals, and yet another perfect example of why wild exotic animals simply should not be either taken out of their native environment and/or brought to areas where they were NEVER intended to live!
