The Human Zoo

A Zoo in croatia has added a human exhibit to to their visitors, where poeple visiting the Zoo can get to experience what it feels like to be in a cage. That would be cool except for 2 things: 1) The visitors are allowed to go in and leave at will, which is soo not fun! They should be locked in there for days and get the same food animals get. You know, for the sake of the experience. 2) The exhibit has an enviromental message. "We wanted people to get a perception of how the animal perceives the cage," Anic told The Associated Press. "But we also wanted to inform people about all the ecological problems for which humans are directly responsible." One cage is for "good man," and is furnished with things made of natural materials — bamboo chairs, and water and fruit displayed on a wooden table. The other, for "evil man," has materials that harm nature — plastic chairs, and garbage in the corner, with a note above the mirror reading: "The most dangerous beast on the planet." Okay people, Bamboo = good, Plastic = bad. Got that you planetary dangerous beasts you?

Didn't the London Zoo already have an exhibit with humans?

David Garnett wrote a good short novel called "A Man in the Zoo" in the 1930s, which deals with this theme. His man was properly locked up. Worth reading if you can find it.
