In the article Zoos The Historical Debate it states, “Red Pandas died after ingesting rat poison.I can 't imagine how they found the rat poison. Also it states, , “Azavark have limited diet that zoos have a hard time fulfilling.” If they don 't have the right food don 't bring in these animals. And if that was not enough, the article continues to say “Zebras At the National Zoo Washington DC.starved to death because of insufficient or incorrect food”. This means the zookeepers are not trained well that means animals don 't
This is often because there are many sensationalized stories about these animals, most of which were because owners were not providing care, or the animals were not suited to the owners abilities to provide care or space, thus creating a problem. There are many more bad owners of cats, and dogs, and these pets are just as likely to become problems. To be fair many people are not suitable owners for exotic pets, and many people are not even suitable owners for cats or dogs. As well many people do not understand that when they say "Nobody should own any type of Exotic Pet" they may be lumping such animals as Rabbits, Hamsters, and Budgies, into that
Keeping wild caught animals is unsafe. According to the article, “Keeping Wild Caught Animals - Unsafe, Illegal, Inhumane”, it is very dangerous to own wild animals because their wild instincts could kick in at any time. Animals can grow to be very strong, which leads to the animals being disastrous in their new home (Should Wild Animals Be Kept As Pets?). Animals are very unpredictable many times if people don’t know what to look for. Many people do years of training and still don’t know how predict the animal’s behaviors (Wild Pets).
It threatens the survival of endangered species and causes a life of misery and agony for many animals because the trade is so lucrative to poachers. Another type of animal cruelty is neglect. This abuse usually happens to the animals in the zoo, the animals with irresponsible
Lastly, people can also harm animals in various ways other than slip-ups with drugs. During the summer, people love to go watch drugged up animals as they walk around in their cramped exhibits. According to Good in Zoochosis:what really happens to animals in captivity, “Over 175 million people visit zoos a year, causing animals to become stressed, bored or frustrated, a term called ‘zoochosis’” (Good). Zoochosis is described as the abnormal actions of animals due to being held in captivity. Because zoochosis is caused by the terror people bring, the children and families that visit are harming the animals.
Why people should not keep exotic animals as a pet. Nowadays people favor to keep exotic animals as a pet. the reason that why people shouldn’t keep exotic animals as a pet, simple way of making unusual choices have an impact in our ecosystem and exotic pets a simple choice made with bigger issues faced. In my own idea based on my observation people tend not to have exotic pets for three reasons; the first reason is it is dangerous to have exotic animals as pets. Most exotic pets is domesticated Corrine (2013) claim that “not only weird looking or unique but also they are wild, that makes them dangerous to handle, because they are not domesticated”.
This requires the ‘torturing’ of animals and most likely the killing of them. Animal testing can be a very cruel process, in most cases animals get harmed during the process ("Product Testing: Toxic and Tragic."). So is this ethically correct? On the other hand, what would happen if we wouldn’t use animals to test the new products on such as TBHQ. Most likely if we hadn’t used animal testing for TBHQ, people would have suffered themselves from the consequences.
Furthermore, visitors' reckless behavior of throwing improper food or other substances can be a safety hazard for zoo animals. On the other hand, many zoo-owners are mean with money spent on the scientific design of zoos' construction, resulting in a lack of adequate protection for visitors. Even if the design of the zoos' construction has greatly improved, zoos are still dangerous for human beings for some unpredictable factors. Presumably, you still remember the case that a male visitor died from being attacked by a tiger in Ning Bo on 29 January 2017 due to his intention of sneaking across the area which the tiger inhabited in order to steal a ride. Chances are that danger lies in recklessness and unpredictability.
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.
Furthermore, the furious and stressful elephants may also cause injury or even death either to the people in charge of zoos, visitors or even to the animals themselves. As such, there are regulations to protect people and especially animals from such risk. There is Tort Law and also The Animal Welfare Act 2006. Tort Law governs liability of management of a premise such as the zoo. Negligence and occupier’s liability is the main branch of tort law which is the most relevant to accidents in zoos.
