One case of this being shown is when children see what is happening to these animals it very much hurts their views on life and societies actions. For example an article written by Jenson E. states, “It is hardly surprising to learn that most children visiting zoos are neither empowered nor educated by the experience of seeing captive wild animals so far removed from their natural habitat. Zoos present an entirely false view of both the animals themselves, and of the real and very urgent issues facing many species in their natural homes. This new research appears to confirm what we have said for many years. Zoos do not educate nor do they empower or inspire children to become conservationists”(Jenson E.).
Imagine you are taken from your home, mother, and environment to a small cage where everybody is looking at you, taking pictures, and having fun. Your owners sell you to a bad zoo where all animals only get food sometimes and the bare cages are cold because your getting too expensive to feed an deven take care of. This is why I take the position that zoos should be banned because they can cause Animal cruelty, Too expensive, and finding new homes. Do you want to do this? Probably not.
A zoo is a limited place where animals live in and are shown for people to visit. For a thousand years, people have kept wildlife in the zoo and it is becoming a common place for keeping animals. Nowadays, there are over 10,000 zoos all around the world and the number tends to rise gradually (National Geographic Organization). It is generally agreed that zoos are the best place for animals. In a zoo, people can spend time with their family or their friends because zoos also have many attractions for the visitors.
Animals who live in zoos may be ill-treated by zoo keepers and get hurt. Many people support zoos because zoos can provide a safe home and excellent care for animals. It’s true that most zoos have a comfortable environment, but we can’t ignore that some zoos are no better than hell that torment animals. There is an information from BBC World News about zoos in Japan. It shows that zoo 's keepers don’t give bears enough food so that bears have to fight for food from visitors and get hurt.
The first time I went to the Bronx zoo, I was really excited because I loved animals and seeing them was the next best to interacting with them. At that time, I never thought or questioned why these animals were behind fences and glass enclosures but today I understand why. Think this year thousands of locals and tourists will flock to Zoos all around the world in hopes of seeing animals one can only see in the wild, or on T.V. Some people argue that animals shall not be kept in zoos as they deserve freedom. On the other hand, some people argue that animals should be kept in zoos but put yourself in their shoes, how would you like it if you got taken from your habitat and family and got put in a cage, locked up where all you do is stare back into the eyes watching your every move.
Animals in the wild do not have this opportunity, so if one of the animals come down with a common virus that could easily be treated with medical care would most likely die if its body can not fight it off. So zoos do benefit animals health. Rachel Foodman commented to Teen Ink., “Some advocates say that zoos protect and save endangered species. With today’s advanced breeding techniques, animals raised in the zoo or other places of captivity are reproducing in vast numbers.” This example demonstrates that with zoos animals can come back from being close to being extinct. Without zoos most species of animals would be extinct right now, due to poaching and other illegal acts, the
Are zoos good? By:Tatum “With the prison walls of every zoo sit tortured souls with empty eyes and broken spirits” Therefore we should ban zoo. Zoos can’t provide the amount of space that a animal have in the wild. Meaning if the space does not suit the animal it will stress out causing the zookeeper to have to kill the animal. “ That means tigers and lions have around 18,000 times less space in the zoo then in the wild”.Zoos are becoming more dangerous for animals.
Zoos are sometimes seen as necessary but poor alternatives to natural environment. Discuss some of the arguments for and/or against keeping animals in zoos. From back in the 35000 BC until today, zoos are seen in different ways by spectators. Where one sees amusing and entertaining place, others see the horror of those poor caged animals. Boxed and shipped far away from their natural environment, set in zoos that can never have the space, food or excitement that they used to have in the.
There are three reasons why zoo is not appropriate for animals. Animals loose of freedom and unnatural habitats, surplus animals are killed and lead to animals’ trade, and zoos unsuccess education and zoos don’t serve conservation. Firstly, animals loose of freedom and unnatural habitats. According to the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals website. “Zoos are prisons for animals who long to be free in their own habitats” (Lee Morgan)1 Animals in zoos have limit area for living.
They are tamed and kept under submission using brutal tactics, and their spines are not made to withstand the load of heavy seats and passengers every day without rest. The same goes for animal tours such as tiger zoos, where you can take your photo with an adorable baby tiger. The tigers are continually bred so there’s a constant supply of cute babies, but when they are older, they’re often sold off for their parts to neighboring countries. If you are an animal lover, avoid the elephant tours and animal tours. Look instead for reputable rescues, such as the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai.
