Zoo-millionærs call to parents: Keep your kids from surfing

Parents should not take their children to the zoo.

this is the sound of the cash announcement from the uk a millionaire Damian Aspinall, who is chairman of the Howletts Wild Animal Park in Kent, in an interview with The Sunday Times.

- I know it would hurt me just as much as any other, but it is my honest answer. There is no excuse for zoos today. Parents take their children to the zoo, when they are small, and when they grow up, they have been influenced to believe that zoos are in order, he adds.

in zoos, according to him, trying to hide the extent of the disease and that the individual grower baby animals only to kill them later in order to ensure a smooth approach of the adorable baby animals in honor of the zoo guests.

That the criticism comes from a zoo-owner, is surprising, and the 59-year-old Damian Aspinall, whose father, John, founded a casino empire, is then also that he can be accused of double standards.

I admit my own hypocrisy. We have the same problems as all the others, he admits.

he has, however, used a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales to pay to send a number of animals back to their habitat.
