There is an ongoing debate about the benefit to society vs how detrimental to animals it is to be kept in zoos. Some say that zoos are the only way modern people can view animals that would otherwise be in the wild. Others say that it is cruel to raise wild animals in a zoo?s limited surroundings (cages, etc.) so that they would never be able to survive if released.

The big difference is that humans get paid to do it, and they are in that job by choice, they could get another job.Also they can choose how to reward themselves with how they use their pay. Animals are not there by choice, so it is not the same
The human species is no different from the animals in that many feel caged in the job that they may have found. Additionally, many humans do not feel the freedom that you may perceive. Animals may tell us they are there by choice if they could talk
I understand that some humans feel stuck in their job. I also realise the reality that humans have made this planet what it is, and animals get the short straw. Why should we feel quite happy that they suffer just because we do just?
while some presume that happiness is found in suffering, others know that this is not the case
Natures rules provide an order of superiority. The strong are elevated to a position over the weak
the outcome is that some remain weak through duplicity
I do hope that you do not have any pets at home. If you do, then you should turn them out immediately so they can have the space for a true high quality life.
PerrySpark: So glad you felt in a position to judge. I have pets, rescue pets only and they are in a truly higher quality of life then before. They were sick and I paid money to bring them back to full health.
