It's clear that this image portray's the way we use animals as our "pupets" by controlling their bodies, movements, and activities in zoo's and circuses. This tiger is a great example about how we look at animals in cages and zoo's in a mesmerized state, but on the inside of the cage, the animal is unhappy. Like the poems of the jaguar and the panther assigned for this week, animals in zoo's lose their sense of freedom and wildness. We put them in unnatural situations where they feel foreign and out of place. The animal is surrounded by a fake environment that doesn't make them feel at home. The animals in zoo's don't have agency over their own bodies and consequently, they don't act like they do in the wild.
