For many people, the zoo is a source of fond memories and funny childhood anecdote like the swinging monkey, growling tigers and the others animals. Some people and I see zoos as prisons where innocent creatures are unjustly held captive. Firstly, animals shouldn’t be kept in zoos because most people go to the zoo purely for their entertainment and truly I think that animals weren’t created for our entertainment and it’s cruel to keep these animals in an artificial environment just for our benefit. Humans aren’t the only organisms occupying the planet and for sure weren’t the first. Even us, we wouldn’t be able to be trapped behind bars and the fact that people come to see you for their own amusement and entertainment. Secondly, animals shouldn’t be kept in zoos because animals should be allowed to enjoy their habitat and not a fake, instead of living in a zoo trapped behind bars like a prison living with whatever others animals the keepers want in the same enclosure. They need to be in their original habitat even if it’s dangerous for us because it will be more dangerous for them. Also an animal deserves to be freedom whatever they do because it’s for their surviving, they need it.
Finally, animals shouldn’t be kept in zoos because the foods in the zoos aren’t the same that they eat normally in their natural habitat. If you don’t like it, well too bad they have to eat it or they will die of hunger.
