Stop Crocosaurus Cove's 'Cage of Death' Park Attraction

What Australian Icon and Herpetologist Steve Irwin took years to preach and teach, is being let down by Crocosaurus Cove Park and its 'Cage of Death' Park Attraction - Love and Respect towards its Animals.

Such forms of "Animal Abuse for Entertainment Purposes" should be banned immediately and such parks should be fined for ill-treatment of the Animals they are breeding.

Everyday,crocodiles are subjected to immense mental stress and physical intimidation as dozens of visitors are lowered into Crocodile Tanks in the safety of a clear acrylic box dubbed the 'Cage of Death', making it a good source of income at the expense of the poor animal's privacy and safety.

One can see the videos showing the visitors
- making faces
- showing fists
- and even thumping the cage walls
to intimidate the crocodiles.

Not the mention the infamous incident when the cage cable broke,dropping the cage to the bottom of the tank, risking the lives of the visitors, and the shards of the broken cage which could have easily punctured the Crocodile's Eyes or even worse if swallowed by the Crocodile itself.

On the other hand,the poor crocodiles bite, bump and smash their head against the Cage trying to save themselves from the intruders(their natural instinct),often resulting in injury and mental harassment to the Animal while the visitors enjoy the fun.

For a little amount of money and a whole lot of publicity, a Park cannot lose its moral value and exploit an Animal which deserves much more Respect and Privacy of its own!!

      Animals arn't things that people can play with. Animals deserve privacy and care and to be treated with respect and given the treatment they well deserve. I don't necessarily like crocodiles as many accidents have occured in death or losing ones bodyparts but that doesn't mean one has the right to torture and a disturb an animal and work it up for entertainment purposes. How would you feel if you were that animal and people kept banging and threatening your place which is meant to be safe and they don't have to be stressed and its mostly unfair that some crocodiles die during these so called fun and games. I am ashamed that there are such people who get pleasure from such things. How dare you think its ok. Its not and its outrageous that people derive enjoyment from another's displeasure whether its animals or people.
