Writer's Block: Into the wild

If you could, would you set a zoo animal free? Which one and why?

As much as I dreamed about freeing zoo animals as a kid, I don't think I ever would, even if given the opportunity. There's just no way of knowing if an animal is sick, or if it's been living in captivity its whole life and can't function in the wild. And animals that were brought here from somewhere else in the world might not even find anything to eat on their own outside of the zoo. Plus, what is a wild animal going to do if it gets out? It might hurt someone, or even itself. It could get hit by a car or shot by someone who sees it on their property at night. There's just so many ways that freeing an animal from the zoo can go wrong.

In other words: getting older ruins your childhood fantasies. :P
