My parents were resistive to freeing captive animals. Because they are not vegetarian and think freeing captive animals is a waste of money. On my Dad’s birthday, he received many kinds of gifts. I said I would give him a very special gift for his health and long life by freeing captive animals on this special day. Somehow he finally agreed to buy some native fish with eggs and happily freed them into the river. I could see he really enjoyed the moment of offering freedom to other lives.
