Who Should Be Caged?


anecdotal stories
Detroit’s zoo director hired four new security guards—to protect the animals from man.
In the past two years there, a baby Australian wallaby left the protection of its mother’s pouch and was stoned to death; a duck died with a steel-tipped hunting arrow in its breast; a pregnant reindeer miscarried after firecracker-hurling youths bombed the frantic animal into convulsions. Visitors have dropped lighted cigar butts on the backs of alligators, laughing at the reptiles’ reactions as the ashes burn through their skin. Finally, the zoo’s male hippopotamus choked to death when someone responded to his open-mouthed begging for peanuts by rolling a tennis ball down his throat.

The zookeepers wonder: Who should be caged?

“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake.” – Matthew 24:9
