The Power of a Pencil to Show Life Behind Bars – YouTube.

“Menagerie” by Jonathan Hodgson takes us on a journey through an all-too-common zoo. A place where wild animals are held captive in small cages so they can be on display for our entertainment. Get a glimpse into what it must be like for these magnificent animals day after day, after day, after day. All with the simple tool of a pencil and an artist’s touch.

Maybe it’s time you visited your local zoo and looked through the eyes of the wild animals incarcerated there. Armed with our Zoo Check form, you can help us track abuses and substandard conditions suffered by animals in zoos, aquariums, circuses or other places that exhibits animals.
