For example in kids stand up to zoos in captivity states animals are getting too expensive to feed so the zookeeper's just wait for somebody to notice and sell them to another zoo. This shows that having too much animals can harm the animals and make them starve to death and even the whole zoo. Some even sell them to another zoo even if there is family or friends. Now you might say this is a good thing selling them to have a better home, but is it really a better home or is it a bad zoo who needs animals to get visitors. I say any zoo is bad for animals.
Dear, Zoo Manager I oppose to animals being in zoos because if they were ever released they wouldn’t have the knowledge to hunt or get food for their cubs. Zoos just isolate animals in little exhibits and don’t treat animals fairly keeping them from their natural habitat. James Nolen said “Animals have a right to be free not stuck in cages being used for entertainment.”. Therefore, what he is referring to is that animals should not be used for any sorts of entertainment to amuse humans. They are just suffering and us humans don’t understand how training them to do things like that; it is difficult for them to learn those curtain moves.
Many captive breeding centers put animals in small enclosures and take complete control over their lives. These animals lose all freedom that they would have had if they were still in the wild and in their own natural habitats. This has a negative impact on these animal as being in a controlled environment and not being able to roam freely causes animals unwanted stress and sometimes can even lead to depression. Furthermore, ‘ A 2015 study published in the Journal of Applied Ecology concluded that unless animals in the wild are protected, captive breeding won’t make a
They need space to roam and live like they 're supposed to live in their own habitat. Every animal has a different habitat. People might think this is a good idea if they love animals, but it 's just not good for the animal or the owner who is keeping the pet. That’s why people should not own exotic animals. Many people don’t realize how many diseases an exotic animal can carry.
This causes health concerns for some animals. According to The New York Times, Dr. Georgia Mason and Dr. Ros Clubb have recently found out that, “ The problems- including high infant mortality and a tendency to pace around and around in the cage-are directly related to the size of the animal’s home range in the wild.” This proves that some animals are not getting the proper living conditions they need in order to be healthy and survive. Animals that are placed in these habitats do not get the skills they need for when they are released back in to the wild. James Owen for National Geographic News in his article, “Most Captive-Born Predators Die If Released” shares information from the University of Exeter in the United Kingdom, “The odds of animals such as tigers and wolves surviving freedom are only 33 percent.” The same article also mentions animal behavior
I think that zoos should not be allowed because they need the freedom to roam around without boundaries of zoo walls. Animals in captivity may live longer but they have the lack of the quality of life, don 't get their natural instincts to hunt, and may not have the right care that they need to be able to live a happy and healthy life. The animals in captivity may live longer but live an unhappy life due to lack of freedom due to zoo walls and other animals. According to Petakids.com “In the wild, elephants walk up to 30 miles each day, bears are active for up to 18 hours a day exploring their home ranges for up to hundreds of miles, and tigers and lions love running and climbing and will roam many miles to hunt.” This being said animals in captivity don 't live up to how they 're supposed to act and don 't let animals run free for miles and miles and zoos prevent animals from doing this. When an animal is in captivity they lose their ability to hunt for there food.
First, these animals are dangerous and they can end up attacking their owners. Secondly, these animals are born in the wild, and are meant to remain in the wild because they will have enough exercises, and get the right food. In addition, chimpanzees and tigers are unpredictable and they can end up attacking their owners or anyone near them. Therefore, people should not be allowed to keep exotic animals like chimpanzees or tigers as pets due to the severity of the issues they can cause, and the problems they have with their owners. Therefore, keeping exotic animals should be banned completely because, the number of injuries and diseases reported to be caused by exotic animals are on the rise, and the death tallies are even much
Humans are the cause for almost all of the animals who have gone extinct, but yet other people don’t want to help save them? From 1970 to 2012 our animal population has dropped by 58%. That my friends is why we need wildlife conservations. Think of all the animals being poached, such as tigers, rhinos, and whales and then tell me you don’t feel bad, because you don’t want to save them. People who argue against conservations, saying they don’t work are full of crap.
Zoos might help with protecting these endangered animals, but it turns their mind into something else. When animals get moved into these small spaces and caged to be viewed by hundreds of people, that might drive them a little mad. Even though zoos try to give animals enough room to roam, fly, run, climb and swim, It doesn’t seem to be enough. Due to this, many larger animals have been seen not behaving as they would in their natural environment. Making their natural instincts become suppressed and even forgot over time.
Although zoos are fun to visit, animals should not be held in captivity because the breed can become overpopulated, they do not know how to survive on their own, and they are being abused. While it is true that some species are going extinct; animals in zoos, however, can become overpopulated sending animals to their deaths. According to an article by One Green Planet, the text states that “Surplus animals can also be animals that the zoo no longer finds profitable, cubs that were a big hit the year before might be replaced by newer, younger animals. Since zoos are not responsible for lifetime care of animals, they can get rid of the animals who are no longer profitable or useful” (The Shocking Truth About What Happens to ‘Surplus’ Zoo Animals, One Green Planet). This shows that zoos will sell their animals to their death to gain business.
These cages are not big enough for what is normally needed. Such as the proper veterinary care, and have the correct amounts of food and water, that they need in order to survive. There are many puppy mills throughout the United States, so the puppies that are sold are not traceable, because of just how many there are. In one
Tiger Cubs Aren 't Disposable Amanda Whelan, a passionate Care2 member, has a problem with that. To Whelan, tiger cubs aren 't disposable objects that can just be thrown away, and that 's why her petition demands that the Massillon tiger cub mascot tradition ends. Obie tiger cubs have been subjected to hell on earth since the early 1970s. The screams of the crowd, blinding lights and loud sounds from the band are hellish for tiger cubs with sensitive ears and eyes -- cubs who wouldn 't naturally leave their mother 's side until they were over two years old. The cubs will often lose control of their bowel movements because they 're so scared.
Another incident happened on August 11, 2005, an eleven day old elephant named Bertha died in surgery at the hands of Ringling Bros., the circus tried to cover up the death and birth but failed due to animal rights activists. July 26. 2006, a four year old elephant named Benjamin was swimming in a pond on a “break” and didn’t obey when he was called to get out, instead he swam the other direction. The trainer then jumped into the pond with a bullhook and swam after Benjamin, the elephant had a heart attack and died. According to an official USDA Report, the trainer’s use of the bull hook “created behavioral stress and trauma which precipitated in the physical harm and ultimate death of the animal.” Bullhooks, poor conditions, endless performance, and premature deaths are all things that go on under the big top.
“Health issues resulting from reduced genetic diversity, such as squished snouts, which cause breathing problems later in life. And breeders often instruct buyers to feed their pig a diet that amounts to starvation. Many pigs come in malnourished and emaciated. Underfed pigs also suffer from weak immune systems, sensitive skin and hoof problems (6 Reasons Why Teacup Pigs Are Not Pets. )” Some of these breeders do not care about how these pigs are bred, “overwhelming numbers of rescued mini-pigs.
