Animal cruelty, even though it has decreased significantly over the past century, is still rampant. Through the use of hundreds of thousands of zoos around the world, those who have claimed to be stopping the capture and abuse of millions of animals have allowed it to go by unnoticed and even supported by the public. From premature death and bad health to unnatural habitats and the culling of surplus animals, wild animals have experienced extreme suffering due to human intervention just for the opportunity for the public to be able to see such ‘wild’ animals on a ‘fun family day out’. Premature death and bad health are two major issues that animals who have been stolen from their natural environment suffer. Captive animals are forced to live in tiny, filthy, desolate enclosures that cannot come close to matching the amount of space, variety and freedom the same animals would experience in their natural habitats. Orcas, for example, are forced to live in an area the size of a bathtub compared to the hundreds of kilometres they swim daily in their natural environment. Through the lack of these basic necessities, many animals experience…

We, as a species, are solely responsible for Earth’s sudden decline in sustainability. It is not how many of us there are, it is how we live…

    relation to their habitat. There are many bird species that are abundant in the the woodlands of Westfield. Where different species of bird are located, depends on the environment. An environment can have a completely different habitat than another environment. Because of this, we suspect birds to favor one habitat over the other.

    However, it can be assumed that these viewers do not understand how these animals get to these parks. Dolphins are captured from their natural habitats and forced to live in these conditions.

    When I was a young child, my parents took my brother and me to the Toronto Zoo, and I visited the site throughout my years in elementary school for field trips. I found a great pleasure in staring at these big, beautiful, and mysterious animals through the wide glass windows; and during the course of being adolescence, I marveled at the fact that, still, living in the city, we had the opportunity to be exposed to an animal in its “natural” habitat. (sites.psu.edu) However, amidst the entire fun…
