2. Parent's Opinion
I decided to talk to my parents about the Copenhagen Zoo. I was sure they would feel the same way as I did. Surely they would think the Zoo was being harsh. I was very wrong.
When I told the news to my mother she just sighed.
"Honey, it's okay," she said, " Zoos do this sometimes. Sometimes it is just necessary for them to thrive. It's nothing to worry about."
I was interrupted by my father. "Look, you heard your mother, it's okay. Tons of places do this. It might be the giraffe, the tiger, the monkey. It doesn't matter. It's part of nature."
"But other zoos offered to take it! People are giving money to help the giraffe! The zoo is bringing death to a healthy giraffe, when there is other options! Don't you understand! There could be an easy solution that wouldn't involve death, yet they are killing him any way! That is just evil!" I was practically screaming! How could my parents not understand! This was just unfair!
"I'm sure there is a good reason why they are sticking to their plan. Now, don't worry about this any more, okay?" My mother was trying to calm me down, it wasn't going to work. I wasn't backing down.
"You don't understand stand!" I screamed. I was raged, and I was normally a calm person. Even if my parents didn't care, I still did.
On that note, I stormed out of the room and up the stairs where I could be alone to think.
