It is true that there are some circuses who don’t physically beat animals and choose not to harm animals physically, however there are forms of abuse other than physical that some people are unaware of. Because circus animals are abused beyond physical, all circuses should be set under harsher banning laws. Animals being locked in cages and taken away from their homes can be a form of psychological and emotional abuse. A research article, edited and cited by the Center for Cellular and Molecular Biology who are a biotechnology research establishment in India, discusses a study of the effects of wildlife in captivity, specifically the effects on the animal 's biology. The study, on Bengal tigers and leopards in Indian zoos, demonstrated stereotypical behavior of animals in captivity from stress compared to the biological and environmental factors the animals faced.
Animals need their space to roam and swim and play, but in zoos animals are kept in cages and are restricted and that has a negative impact on animals and could jeopardize their mental health and happiness, also living in a zoo can restrict animals from learning their natural behaviors that they need and is not beneficial to them, also habitats get destroyed every day and instead of putting the surviving animals in zoos, sanctuaries or nature parks are a better alternative, they keep the animals safe and sill give them the opportunity to live the life of a wild animal. If there is a better alternative to putting animals in a zoo where they aren’t forced to do tricks to entertain people or where they aren’t restricted from learning their natural instincts in the wild, why aren’t more animals going
While doing away of zoos completely may be too much of a steep step, a compromise may be able to satisfy both sides. An amendment of zoos may occur where zoos could only be for animals from hazardous environments. Instead of taking animals from their stable and adequate habitats, removing animals that’s home has being destroyed or deemed unlivable for the animal gives it a new place to live. This won’t fix the problems with zoos, but it will at the very least only affect animals with no place to go rather than all animals for the sole purpose of human
Animal cruelty is becoming an issue that is too big to ignore. It can be defined as neglect or the infliction of pain or suffering towards animals. One might notice that this is an issue that is becoming more common in zoos and aquariums. These places can be wonderful for the animals, but can also portray an awful life for the captive animals. No animal should have to go through the pain and stress that many are suffering through.
Because people think that, they support the zoos by giving them money to see these animals instead of going to animal preservations where the enclosures aren’t entirely man made. Animals that can function and survive in the wild should not be kept in zoos because the enclosures do not meet the needs of the animals living in them, zoos restrict animals from their innate behavior and their natural instincts, and zoos are expensive and damage animals homes. Enclosures in zoos do not provide everything the animal needs. In paragraph 6 in the article
Prohibiting all types of animal confinement for the safety of animals can be beneficial towards most animals, however, obviously affect the economy negatively. Hundreds of animals kept in circuses and private shows around the world are used as a source of entertainment, education, and profit benefits only. In a study, Marcellini found that fewer than 1% of visitors read the signs provided in zoos and zoological parks to educate the visitors about that specific
For a long time there has been the debate if Zoos, Circuses, and aquariums violate human rights considering that in certain cases they help animals from extinction. While that could be the case we also see that animals are unhappy, mistreated badly, and also they are only there for the sole purpose of human entertainment. On a personal belief I think that they do violate human rights, and they should be shut down. While they can save animals, there is way too much more evidence leaning towards it being bad. Zoos, circuses, and aquariums should be shut down.
Do you recognize that cute little animal you claim to love, well do you know that you are going more harm than good when you support zoo’s. I know you may think, “how could I hurt animals by going to a zoo” well did you know that a life of confinement doesn't compare to the life that animal would have in their natural habitat. When you support a zoo you are supporting the mistreatment of animals. Animals in zoos are forced to sit in small enclosure and are literally driven insane from frustration and boredom. You call yourself an animal lover but no real animal lover would stand for the mistreatment in zoos.
In my opinion, zoos, aquariums and circus violate animal rights and should be shut down and alternatively we can save and protect the endangered species by many other ways. The first step is learning about how interesting and important they are. Protecting the special places where they live since they must have places to find food, shelter and raise their young. Shooting, trapping, or forcing a threatened or endangered animal into captivity is also illegal and can lead to their extinction and we shouldn’t participate in this activity, and report it as soon as we see it. We should reduce our use of water in
If they’ve been brought in for human entertainment at a zoo, they begin to lose this need. In some cases, this can be a good thing, like if they need a population control. However, other times, this can actually ruin how an ecosystem works. Once whatever animal is being hunted stops getting hunted, then that population will begin to overpopulate and cause even more problems than what they started with in the beginning. This cycle is never
