The murder of Sumba the lion, and the massive escape of the Tbilisi Zoo - WANTING FREEDOM

In December 2013, an albino lioness named Cleopatra gave birth to four cubs born of her forced union with Samuel. One of them, surely, was Sumba. Sumba and his brothers, who quickly became stars for visitors to the Tbilisi Zoo, were condemned to live without ever knowing anything like freedom.

But one day, a storm opened the door of his cage and took advantage of the opportunity, just like many other animals. The floods of the last hours had devastated the city and had ended the lives of several people, human and not human. 60 stray dogs lay drowned in a nearby refuge, while dozens of hunters chased the lions, tigers, bears, hyenas, jaguars, caimans, and wolves escaped from their prison, lost and surely frightened; but at last free wandering the streets of the city.

Other less "fearsome" animals were sedated and sent back to their cages. By then many others had also drowned, trying to escape. Sumba, on the other hand, was shot dead in the head . Someone had stolen his life as a trophy. Perhaps the very people who decided that they should be born prisoner were those who ruled that they did not deserve to live free. Simply put, in a world where other animals are exhibits, there was no way out for Sumba or her classmates. leakage. The world out there belonged to those who had been locked in, punished for their freedom in a place where their only possible place was a cage.

This story happened yesterday. It's happening right now. Animals that never had to live in a prison within a city, are persecuted and killed in their streets while writing these lines.
