Is putting animals in zoos cruel?


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

    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.
