“Why are there people in there?” children could be heard asking their parents in front of a sign reading “Warning: Humans in their Natural Environment.”
Zoo spokeswoman Polly Wills had a ready answer.
“Seeing people in a different environment, among other animals … teaches members of the public that the human is just another primate,” she told the Associated Press.
“We’re not that special,” says one of the eight human idiots on display in the London zoo.
I think I must agree.
Philosphically, however, it’s another attempt to put man on the same plane as the animal.
Created in the image of God? Nah, just another evolutionary dead-end. Like the chimps or gorillas.
And extra attention — and income — for the zookeepers.
