The lion is meant to be the king hunting for his prey, the fox is the sly and witty one, the deer the fast one birds sweet, swift and deadly...protection you provide is by holding back our freedom, but we live our lives better off without you deep in the fores.
We are preys and predators of one another. We don't need protection we can serve ourselves till our last breath.
We are of different shapes and sizes and posses different specialities.
Protecting us is a noble deed, but caging us is a big crime.It's supported by the law of the highest courts in your world. But o'man leave us alone it doesn't work that way in our world!
