    Animals are born with natural instincts that kick in at a very young age. If an animal is raised in a zoo it may not know what to do when released into the wild. These animals may not be able to survive. So which is best for the animals, the wild or the zoo? Honestly, I believe animals should live in the wild.

According to “The Impact of Animal Protection” the release of animals from captivity will be very dangerous since they’re just released back to their home, they will need their instincts that they may have forgotten how to use.

    Have you ever been to a zoo? Zoos are very popular and everyone has been to at least one, at some point in their life. They are known for showing off the wild animals, and educating you on them at the same time. I don’t think zoos do very well with that. To me, a zoo is a large business that captures wild animals and changes their lives forever. They hold them in captivity and don’t treat them like the should, like wild animals. Many zoos are businesses and known for only caring about the money,…

    in zoos and similar facilities are valid. The pro-rights group is correct in that the intentional deprivation of a being’s freedom merely to make a business of it is all but despicable. Even more, there is no reason to maintain zoos in such poor conditions that physically harm the animals being kept. That’s not to say, however, that the whole concept of animal captivity should be dismissed as cruel and unjust, as there are certain circumstances in which it can be justified. There are several…
