Animals trying to be people

Bobo‘s ENGAGING. His big interested eye looks delighted. He seems bright, glossy, happy. I like his insecure feet. I wonder how he feels about the cameraman. I wonder if he misses his parrotness. I wonder how his ancestors got trapped in the jungle.

Been thinking about animals on the internet, the animal awwwness movement in general. What’s in it for the well being of the species and the individual? Is it going to encourage or discourage the trapping of parrots in the Congo? Could go either way.

This isn’t about animals being people. It’s just unbelievably moronic and useless. I heard that the crew and cast ate wolf meat to get into the combative spirit.
