Oh no you have just been shot by a tranquilizer dart and you 're put in a truck and you never see your friends and family ever again. Well that 's what happens when animals go to zoos. Zoos are harmful to animals. To begin with, Animals aren 't getting the right diet when they live in zoos. Also, animals are not getting the right amount of space.
Even the best zoos in the world cannot begin to even try replicating the natural habitat of one animal therefore; animals are often prevented from their natural behavior or doings such as running, roaming, flying, climbing, foraging, choosing a partner and being with their own kind. Zoos simply just cannot provide enough space. As saddening as it is to say this, zoos can in fact be miserable places for animals. A CAPS film called, “No Place Like Home,” shows us the conditions of animals being held captive in a zoo. The film took place at Tweedle Farm Zoo where sick animals were left untreated and the corpses of dead animals were left on the floor to rot.
But some zoos again are preserving and studying endangered species in captivity to save endangered species in the wild. For example the San Diego Zoo researchers are working to preserve living cell samples from animals. Hoping that one day they will have the technology to turn cells into full animals, which could allow scientists to restore endangered species. So zoos have had the choice how to save endangered species, ones what are quicker or ones what are not possible to do right now. No one is born to be prisoner.
Body One of the advantages of having zoos, is to provide protection to some animals that are endangered. Animals such as the Tiger, Pandas and African Chimpanzees are kept inside zoos in order to preserve their species and prevent them from going extinct. They are well protected from their predators which allows them to breed and, hopefully, repopulate their species in order to keep their species alive. One of the examples is that zoos implemented International Breeding Programs in order to help these endangered species breed. As the numbers of that
It says that most animals suffer with stress, boredom and confinement(Lin). This means that animals in zoos are living with problems. However, there is also evidence that supports animals can be better off in zoos. “Good zoos go to every possible length to ensure the animals in their care have a full and high quality life. A large part of this includes creating situations where animals feel pleasure, happiness and contentment as well as mental stimulation”(“Five Facts About Good Zoos”).
Zoos can help us learn about animals and help endangered species grow in population. Without zoos how will we ever be able to get close to a wild animal and learn about their natural habitat? If a animal is about to go extinct then how could we help them while they are being hunted? A zoo is a great way to hold endangered species so they don’t go extinct, and you can adopt a animal and give the zoo money to help them.All of this show that zoos should not be closed. Many people may still disagree but they should agree because zoos can save a animals
Zoo keepers are not hostile for getting animals in the zoos. Animals put in zoos can provide entertainment. Kids and adults alike can see and learn about their favorite animals. Children can touch or interact with the animals they fond of. All people can learn to resect the wildlife.
He even saw the coolie man’s face and writes “His face was coated with mud, the eyes wide open, the teeth bared and grinning with an expression of unendurable agony.”(pg.325). Unendurable agony, that image with forever burned in his brain and with that will be the guilt that maybe, just maybe he and the elephants owner could have avoided. The elephant’s owner went an hour in the opposite direction as his “must” motivated elephant ran through the town. He has no idea of the destruction and death brought upon the elephant. He will be informed and the guilt will fallow as well.
Allowing people to have pit bulls in their own care is question for many (Time). People should be able to own a pitbull for many reasons. Pit bulls are great dogs because they are good with most people, especially children. They are very obedient and some respond to commands if told to do so. They are also very helpful at times and easy to train.
The constant boredom Happy experiences not only causes stress but in some cases causes aggression. Aggression is something wild elephants only exhibit when a member of their herd is in danger. The fact that Happy sometimes acts in fits of rage shows that she believes that she is in danger (Tullis). Along with aggression, the constant stress that Happy is under causes neurotic behavior. “As much as 85 percent (of elephants in zoos), according to a 2013 study by the Honolulu Zoo -- develop disturbing neurotic behaviors, such as repetitive swaying and head-bobbing” (Tullis) The Bronx Zoo tries to argue that Happy does not have any of these characteristics, yet on numerous occasions former employees claim to have seen her exhibit these behaviors.
