The Five Most Miserable-Looking Animals at the Arizona State Fair

Page 2 of 3

5. Petting Zoo Wallaby
We're willing to bet that you too would look just as sad as this Australian marsupial after being subjected to a nonstop stream of noisy children pulling your ears while screaming, as well as the occasional Affliction-wearing bro misidentifying you as a kangaroo to his girlfriend.

4. Caged Rabbits
These rabbits are so damn cute and cuddly, but we hate seeing members of the leporidae family pent up as a part of the fair's livestock exhibition. 

Thankfully, like most of the animals on display, they're up for sale for those who'd like to give 'em a good home...or cook 'em up in a stewpot.
