北极熊的眼泪你看见了吗?

2016-07-27    来源:BBC Newsbeat    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

近日网络上一组“世界上最悲伤的北极熊”主题照片引起了网友的关注。该照片由动物权益组织拍摄于广州正佳购物中心的水族馆,该组照片展现了一只被囚禁的供游人观赏拍照的北极熊的悲惨状况。据悉,该水族馆还有许多其它的海洋和极地动物,由于购物中心工作人员缺乏动物保育知识,这些珍贵的极地动物只能持续遭受着悲惨的人工监狱生活。目前已有网友呼吁游客自觉抵制这类虐待动物的小型购物中心。

 

请看BBC Newsbeat 的详细报道:


World's "saddest" polar bear kept in Chinese mall

世界上最悲伤的北极熊

Animal welfare campaigners are trying to free a polar bear that's being kept in a shopping centre  in China. He's called Pizza and has been dubbed the "world's saddest polar bear" after videos emerged of him slumped on the floor of his enclosure.

动物权益保护人士正在努力释放一只被囚禁在中国某购物中心的北极熊。这只北极熊名叫Pizza,在一段它趴在围栏里的地板上面的视频发布后,被称为“世界上最悲惨的北极熊”。

 

Nearly 400,000 people have signed a petition to close the "ocean theme park" at the Grandview Centre in Guangzhou. It is also home to beluga whales, walrus calves, a wolf and arctic foxes.

将近40万人联名请求关掉广州正佳购物中心的“海洋主题公园”。这里还关着白鲸、海象幼崽、北极狼和白狐等动物。

 

Animals Asia started the petition releasing a video that looks like Pizza is crying as tourists stop to take photos.The charity says the aquarium's owners made "no attempt to create an environment that would meet the needs of any living bear" when it opened in January.

动物权益保护组织Animals Asia发布了一段游客围起来拍照时北极熊似乎在哭泣的视频。该动物慈善机构称,自水族馆1月份开业以来,该水族馆的老板始终没有为北极熊创造一个适宜的生存环境。

It claims Pizza is living in cramped conditions with "nothing natural". The owners insist they have made improvements because of the petition. And they have asked Animals Asia to suggest how they can make the animals lives better.

Pizza一直生活在人为搭建的狭窄拥挤的空间里面。该水族馆的老板还坚持声称在收到来自各地民众的请求之后已经对Pizza的生活条件做了改善。而且他们也向动物权益组织Animals Asia咨询了如何改善这些动物的生存条件。

 

But Animal Welfare Director Dave Neale thinks the staff don't understand how polar bears should be kept. "Grandview are genuinely shocked by the international outrage at their aquarium and the awful facilities used to house animals." "As is so often the case, I believe that the cruelty is as much about a lack of knowledge as commercial pressures." 

但是动物权益保护组织的负责人Dave Neale 认为这家水族馆的员工根本不懂如何喂养一只北极熊。该购物中心对于发生在他们的水族馆残忍暴行以及其圈养动物的糟糕条件和设施感到震惊。“这种情况经常出现,我认为产生这种残忍事件的大部分是由于缺乏商业压力方面的常识”。

 

But the charity insists it is cruel to keep the animals in a mall. "There will never be a time when polar bears can ever comfortably be kept inside a shopping centre and certainly not in the small glass case that currently houses them," says Dave Neale.

但是动物慈善机构坚持坚持认为将动物圈养在购物中心本身就是非常残忍的行为。Dave Neale说道:“北极熊根本不可能在一个小购物中心里面舒适地生存,更不可以将它们圈养在一个小玻璃格子间里”。

 

"However, if allowed, then we will work to improve the welfare of the animals. "As far as we are concerned we are working for the animals. "We cannot turn our backs on them."

“但是只要情况允许的话,我们会努力改善和保护这些动物的权益。我想我们正在努力保护这些动物,我们绝对不会抛弃这些可怜的动物”
