"It's new in zoos, the idea that animals can think and feel."

I've often found it odd to watch zookeepers at work. The majority seem to act as if they're working at a mall, cleaning the salesfloor, straightening the mannequins. Only very rarely have I come across a zookeeper who acts the way I imagine I would if my job was to care for animals...treating them as if they had some degree of intelligence and sensitivity.
