Cages are very confined and squishy and the animal would probably become quite aggressive trying to get out of the small cage. It is cruel to keep animals in cages because they lose their natural instincts. In their natural habitat animal’s hunt, kill, breed, hide from predators and live with their own kind. In cages animals are lucky to have another animal of their species in the cage. They are given food and practically forced to breed.
>>I will now inform you of the dangers of owning a wild animal. >The Humane Society of the United States's website tells us that >Exotic animals, by their very nature, are dangerous. Although most exotic animals are territorial and require group interactions, an exotic pet typically isolates and spends the majority of his/her day in a small enclosure unable to roam and express natural behaviors freely. These animals are time bombs waiting to explode. >Wild animals
No matter how much we may try to replicate their own habitat and surroundings in a zoo and it will never get to its full potential. Predators need to hunt and taking them from the ability to do so by taming, caging and drugging them is beyond cruel. A study in 2008 found that Asian elephants in European zoos have a maximum life span of just 18.9 years compared to 41.7 years for wild elephants in an Asian logging camp. We should just let nature take its course. Wild animals in zoos suffer unnecessarily.
Is keeping animals in zoos cruel? Background: zoos, endangered animals, roaming around their habitat Disagree: safe, enough food, protected poachers, Agree: natural habitat, no socializing Nowadays, in zoos all over the world, zookeepers are trying to protect endangered animals, by keeping them in captivity.

Zoo animals have to spend day after day, week after week, year after yearin the exact same enclosure. This
The wild animals will always be wild even though people raised them or kept them in their house. After considering both sides of issues, I strongly believe that people can not keep exotic animals in their houses, because the wild animals has their own houses, their own family, and the can be free in the wild without being controlled. An exotic animal is a rare pet, it is a wild species not typically kept as a pet. But nowadays, people around the world keep tigers as cats and kangaroos as rabbits in edition that they will learn from keeping the animals in their houses. Austin Setzer (2012) suggests before getting an exotic critter, people can look them on the computer or in a book.
• By zoo I think you mean animal prison. Besides robbing them of freedom: disease, illness, mistreatment by handler’s visitors and other animals, injury, psychological distress, injury to visitors, and the worst of all death of the animals. Good zoos are fine, but there are some zoos out there which most people don't even know exist which are illegal and the species of animals kept are not well looked after. • While I agree to a great extent to both of the previous statements I would also have to say that the one thing about zoos that is good is that there are countless people in the world that do not have the means or opportunity to see wild animals in their natural habitat and a zoo is the only way they will ever have the chance to do so. It is sad though the way some animals are treated in zoos; I personally think the board of directors of a zoo should be personally held accountable for the well fare of the animals in their keeping.
There are a lot of zoos in the world and millions of people visit them every year. But are zoos harmful or helpful to animals which are caged there?

Many shelters across North America provide a place to take in stray and lost animals. This is where animals are kept for short periods of time until later the decision it made to euthanizing the animal. In the society we live in the demand of breeding of designer breeds of dogs is high. Everyone wants the latest breed of dogs leaving many of the unwanted pets homeless. This isn’t the case most of dogs are deemed unadoptable because the lack social skills and forced in surviving on their own.
Although this sound good for us humans, think about the hundreds of animals killed a month, just so a major cosmetic company such as Maybelline can test a new batch of lipsticks. The conditions that the animals are kept in are appalling, and not to mention unethical. In some cases, the animals are kept in cramped cages and often go without food.
