TripAdvisor stops selling tickets into SeaWorld; Airbnb offers ethical animal encountersStarTribune at MSN.Com #Espa_OlDecember 1, 2019
Have you gone on an elephant ride during some distant getaway because you adore the laconic beasts?
Animals held for the entertainment of visitors may be deprived of socialization with others of their kind, forced to live far from their natural habitat or fed an unhealthy diet.
Hospitality companies across the country are increasingly taking note — and taking action.
October was a good month for animals — and the tourists who love them.
People can go bird-watching in South Africa, or enjoy vegan wine and cheese while visiting rescued farm animals like goats and chickens in Sonoma.
Also, TripAdvisor announced that it stop selling tickets to ” any attraction that continues to contribute to the captivity of future generations of cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoises),” according to a news release .
Destinations like SeaWorld, which TripAdvisor put on the no-go list, are pushing back, arguing that they rescue animals in distress, help them recover and return to the wild those that can survive.
Paying customers help support that work.
Zoos, including the Minnesota and Como zoos, spend resources on animal research and conservation around the world and educate the public.
But as more tourists focus on animal welfare, travel companies make adjustments.
As I picked up my morning coffee, I scoped out the place for possible prey. A new cock to suck from a suitable guy was on my breakfast menu. I made eye contact with a good-looking 30-something but quickly realized that he was a former conquest. As he approached to say hello, I raised my hand like a traffic cop and shook my head no. He stopped and retreated, obviously disappointed. I was looking for some fresh meat. However, I was so horny and hungry for cock and hot cum that if nothing new was to my liking I would go back to the 30-something, but I had to act quickly, as always.
