Comment on the following statement:
| Is it fair to keep animals in zoos? |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people say that it is absolutely unfair to keep animals in zoos, whereas others do not agree. They believe that zoos are not really bad places for animals.
I think that it is not unfair to keep animals in zoos. First of all, they are well protected from their natural enemies there. Nobody attracts and kills them as it might be in wild nature. Second, I guess, they do not really care where they live if they get what they need. Usually they are well-fed and taken care of. Many of them can live as comfortable at zoos as they live in wild nature.
At the same time there are people who say that many animals suffer from bad conditions in zoos. Being cut from wild nature from the possibility to hunt to be themselves, they do not feel happy.
In my opinion these people have a point. Some animals need more space and some must hunt. Nevertheless, many animals have already been born in zoos so they do not really suffer without hunting in the wild.
In conclusion, I would like to say that there are different zoos as well. To my mind the main thing is how the animals are kept, not where. Good zoos provide animals with everything they need and they live happily there. Bad zoos violets all possible living conditions and make the lives of poor animals miserable. This should be changed as soon as possible.
