    Boycott marine theme parks, rodeos, bullfights, and any other acts for our entertainment. Instead of visiting zoos, consider watching animals in their natural habitat. If you like watching animals in zoos, try substituting by visiting the Humane Society's "Black Beauty Ranch" a facility that rescues animals from the wrong hands.
