I detest zoos as well. However, I would have actually liked to see someone like you working there over others who don't care for the individual animals. You could have been a force from the inside to illicit change. Although, I think that would have made your job very difficult. Also, you would be a guard against brutality and abuse of the animals. If an animal is suffering, your voice might be the only thing that helps that animal.
If you do take a position there in the future, there will be some vegans who understand your motivations. Unfortunately, a lot won't.
Yeah I totally agree, and I know what you mean about the way certain vegans feel..
I almost don't consider myself a vegan though, because that implys that I follow a strict set of rules based on an absolute morality.. That's wrong to me, I do what I think is right and don't do what I believe to be wrong whilst using reason to justify my actions. I'm meat/dairy/egg/leather/fur free but some other things considered to be non vegan I don't necessarily boycott.
sensai ross, forgive me for doubting you and myself
