    It is depressing. It's a very powerful photo. Shows exactly why zoo's shouldn't have animals caged. I'd like to see a zoo where each animal has exactly how much roaming space they need to be fully healthy in the wild. Say a lion or something, and they literally have a couple square miles or what have you as their "cage". A 30 x 30 foot cage is prison, and inhumane. Will it ever happen? Doubtful.

    She has the look of "please get me out of here" in her eyes. Great shot.

    Very moving photo. Poor thing :( The eyes seem to say "I hate my life... someone please help me"

    Nice shot. I think I'd crop it a little tighter to get rid of some of the white on the left. The eyes are great.

    Personally I agree with the above comments, the eyes do say it all, but to me they say; "I pity you, thank god for the humane people who put this fence between you and me."

    Then again I'm weird.
