Do you think that it is inherently cruel to keep undomesticated animals in captivity?


Often we see people bashing zoos and other situations where exotic animals are kept in captivity. My personal view is that the vast majority of the animal kingdom (with the possible exception of some higher functioning animals such as Great Apes, Elephants, Cetaceans, Corvids, etc.) CAN be kept in captive situations such as zoos and potentially still have a good quality of life. This view extends to exotic pets. So, I would like to hear the community's opinion on the subject. Please provide clear and concise answers, and be willing to defend your position.
