Celibacy is illegal

For animals in zoos, that is. Moved by the "plaintive mating calls of ... lonely animals" in zoos, Dhananjay Mahapatra of the Times of India finds that the "enforced celibacy" of zoo animals is "against rule 37 of the Recognition of Zoo Rules, 1992."

I know plenty of college kids who would surely wish that the state had as much consideration for their carnal needs as for those of zoo animals. We're all caged animals inside our skins, and the zoo is civilisation. Or is that a terribly pseudo thing to say? Never mind.
