700,000 animals are captured and put into zoos each year. Just think about the number of lives we are ruining day by day. Firstly animals should be able to roam around freely, not be behind bars when their lives have just begun. Humans may see them as a treat, but they deserve the equality humans are been given. Imagine waking up to nothing but lifeless animals and cages till the eye can see.
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.
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. In addition to this, an article by Medium states that “these programs also breed a surplus of exotic animals that may too often be sold at auction, animals which have ended up at “canned hunt” farms here in the U.S. where canned hunts are legal” (What Happens to Surplus Zoo Animals, Medium). This
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
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.
Should we be keeping animals in zoos? How does that really help the animal? Can we keep them safe? As referenced in the text “The Impact Of Animal Protection,” human activities have been destroying animal habitats to make roads or more buildings, even hunting for sport! So to protect these animals, we’ve created zoos and nature parks for the animals, but are both of them really benefiting the animals?
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
These numbers have decreased a numerous amount since 1984, if Best Friends Animal sanctuary stopped what there doing today or never existed this number would have raised from 17 million animals being killed to where animals would be in jeopardy and maybe some even becoming extinct. This sanctuary has helped so many animals over the years to where they will find owners that will love them and not throw them out on the streat to die. Everyday an animal loses their family or dies, but Best Friends Animal sanctuary is a safe place for animals to go and find a loving, caring family. “By adopting, it means that each time you look into your pet’s eyes, you can feel good knowing that you truly did save a life” ( Best Friends). The differences that Best Friends is making is growing quickly.
In addition, circus animals put human lives at risk and are abused on a daily basis. Although supporters of circuses argue that circus animals receive necessary veterinary care, many circus animals die due to neglect each and every year. Defenders of circuses claim that “Under federal regulations, sick elephants must get prompt medical care and a veterinarian's okay before performing” (Nelson). Supporters of circuses dont see the harm of using circus elephants because there are laws that enforce circuses to give sick elephants veterinary care. However, it is very rare that the circus trainers abide to these guidelines.
That isn't bad because they don't get taken from their home. The video ‘no place like home’ says “Some animals from their home never return to the wild but instead they get sold to another zoo.” although they bring them back from endangerment they never come home after they get healed. In conclusion it should be clear why zoos should be banned because Animal cruelty,too expensive, and getting taking from their home. Do you think zoos should be banned? For?
The workers of SeaWorld try their best every single day to look after every species of animal, and in return, are now being hassled and abused for it. Although being held in captivity is not the best way for an animal to spend their life, it has its benefits. Without these animals being cared for by SeaWorld, many of them would be dead. SeaWorld has a rescue program, in which they recuperate thousands of sick marine and land based animals every year. They do not seize healthy animals for captivity.
