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.
The first reason why there shouldn 't be zoos is because they make animals unhealthy. For example, animals live longer in the wild rather than in zoos. Studies have proven that elephants live longer in the wild rather than in zoos (Lin). This means that because zoos make animals unhealthy, they live a shorter life. Another way that zoos make animals unhealthy is that they make animals live in small habitats causing health problems.
It illegal to import animal hunting trophies. “Many animals imported as trophies are members of species protected under the Endangered Species Act (ESA), such as leopards and African elephants, the importation of endangered and threatened species is only for scientific research, enhancement of propagation, or survival of the species. ” (“Sport Hunting Should Be Banned”). If hunters really don’t want to give up hunting as a sport then there are many alternatives. Activities/sports that can provide a better outcome than hunting do exist.
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. Therefore, animals should be left in the wild and not sold for profit.
Everyone wants something in their life. A new phone, new clothes, jewelry, toys, and other luxuries. But did you realize the price tag does not show the full price? “Saving The Worlds”, and “The Race to Save the Elephants” by Mary Kate Frank believes that because of our negligence and cupidity, animals and environments are the ones actually paying for your decisions. Mankind are incessantly ruining their lives by obliterating their habitats, overfishing, poaching, producing pollution, and other nefarious methods.
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.
In George Orwell 's short story titled “Shooting an Elephant” presented an event that changed a countries civilization. George’s life in Burma, and the prejudice placed by the people he oppressed inspired his writing through the uses of setting, style, and theme. In George Orwell’s “Shooting an Elephant” Orwell no specific event influenced this piece rather it was an accumulation of many small events of prejudice and hate by an opposing group of
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.
Big game hunting should NOT be allowed. It can cause extinction, and can leave some animals with no habitats due to humans taking over their land. Big game hunting causes many different negative things to happen, but on of those negative things is that it can cause extinction. Currently, elephants are endangered because humans are selfish and want to take their ivory tusks. Humans have also depleted the tiger population down to less than 2,500 tigers in the whole world.
