Shraddha Kapoor’s love for animals is no secret. While the actress’ social media handle is filled with posts on poodles and several other four-legged animals, it is her recent post that is winning hearts all over the internet.
While several people are battling anxiety and depression being locked down inside their houses during these days, Shraddha made use of this situation to explain to the world the plight of animals that are caged inside. The actress said that we should be a lot more sensitive towards these beings are their feelings too are no different from what we are feeling right now.
Sharing a collage of several caged animals on her official social media handle, Shraddha captioned the heart-wrenching image as, “So, you’re tired of isolation?
As COVID-19 has forced the world to quarantine, we’ve all felt the effects of isolation — depression, anxiety, loneliness. Animals experience these same emotions. As humans, we tend to lack empathy for others until we’ve experienced their situation ourselves. But now that we’ve felt the suffering of captivity, let’s extend empathy toward the other living beings that we share this planet with.
Millions of animals have been isolated for their entire lives. In isolation, these animals exhibit concerning behaviours including self-harm. Mental health is not a uniquely human trait. This is not normal.
So, you’re tired of isolation? These animals have been isolated for their entire lives. No living being should live in captivity. We are guests of this planet, not masters. #Repost @earth”
