Wild animals are captured and brought halfway across the world to a place that in no way resembles what once was theirs. In captivity animals face challenges which life has not prepared them for. Confined behind cage bars they are trapped. Four walls separate them from doing all things natural including hunting, roaming, and breeding.

In general, I don’t believe that juveniles can be born evil or bad. Environmental factors carry a lot of weight when it comes to how children develop and grow into adults.
