Below is a guest post by the animal and human rights activist and supporter of free software Luis Leonel.
While Danish children are exposed to dissections of defenseless and innocent animals in zoos of DENMARK after they were found “surplus”, and consequently, are taught to despise the right to life of animals, in URUGUAY, five-year-old children from the school Santa Elena are taught to respect that right.
Scientific Director of the Copenhagen Zoo in Denmark, Bengt Holst, after they slaughtered the giraffe Marius, said they teach Danish children the “real world”. What is the “real world”? The world of children watching the dissection of “surplus” animals in zoos or the world of children returning turtles to the sea?
