Freedom is something that most of us know and do not often appreciate enough.
It is not something we ever went without, it is something that we’ve had and just understood to be a normal part of our lives. But for animals, freedom is not always guaranteed, even if these beautiful creatures are meant to live in the wild.
There is a lot of debate about animals in circuses, zoos, and roadside shows. As many of the establishments and groups have been discovered to treat their animals poorly, many advocates work hard to free those animals.
Lily the bear has been living at a roadside zoo in Maryland for the last 10 years. She was stuck in a tiny cage that was clearly not big enough for her.
Because her confinements were so small, she constantly walked all over her own waste and droppings. The space was so tiny, she could not get any exercise and had become severely overweight.
But with the help of the wonderful people at PETA, Lily was retired from the zoo and is now going to live the rest of her life as she should.
She was retired to The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Colorado and got to enjoy her first steps outside of a tiny cage. Now she can roam and enjoy her life, no longer needing to entertain others. With their help, hopefully, her weight will soon be under check and Lily’s life will be stress-free.
