Hamilton compares lockdown to animals trapped in a zoo

Hamilton compares lockdown to animals trapped in a zoo

Lewis Hamilton believes the current self-isolation lockdown due to the coronavirus outbreak should make people think twice about visiting zoos in the future, as he compares his current situation to an animal in captivity.

The pandemic has led to millions of people around the world isolating themselves at home in order to protect themselves as well as curb the spread of the virus.

Hamilton is no different, and has been vocal about criticising those who are not taking the situation seriously, as they continue to lead normal lives and gather in large numbers.

As he sits at home, he has compared it to being an animal caged in a zoo.

“If you are home on lockdown, perhaps you can feel a little of what the animals in captivity go through everyday, their entire lives stopped from them," he wrote on Instagram.

“In future, please don’t go to any zoos or circuses because this is what our money goes to supporting. #nomorezoos #freedom”

Hamilton has long been a supporter of animal right and in the last few years has adopted a plant-based diet.

He was due to compete in the 2020 Formula 1 season, going for his seventh world championship to put him alongside record-holder Michael Schumacher, but several races have been postponed due to the outbreak of the deadly virus.
