A bear sits alone at the bottom of a concrete pit while children gawk at him.
The image, which seems almost like something out of a sad fable, perfectly captures the desolation and deprivation of zoos that cater to human entertainment.
Peter Marlow snapped the image at Russia’s Kaliningrad Zoo in 2001. Sadly, nearly 15 years later, bears still appear to populate enclosures like this. As a more recent video shows, zoo bears stand on the edge of a platform and beg for the apples amused visitors throw to them.
