To incarcerate an innocent human in a cage where that person is ritually observed, provoked and mocked would be considered torture. To do the same thing to an animal, however, well, that's called a zoo. And look what fun these charming children are having with a gorilla at the Dallas Zoo, where the tykes really get a kick out of taunting the poor beast until it snaps. And by "snaps" we mean reacts in a manner far more civilized than a human probably would, given the obnoxious goading of these delighted youngsters. Remember, children are our future. Even these.
