Are zoos good or bad for animals? Everybody try to know more about something, but talking about animals we can know more about their life going to a zoo because there’s lot of animals from different places in a same one. In a zoo we can observe and know a little bit more of their habitats and the ways that they can survive in other places, because they have to fight against weather, stress, food and territory. Zoos have exist from ancient and always have had the characteristics that I already describe or simply for entertainment. I agree with zoos because that’s a way to preserve the different species but sometimes animals are not in excellent conditions.
Pi shows discontent with how people spoke of zoo's being prisons for animals, versus the safe-havens he saw them as. He expresses their thoughts as "..not the way it is" (16). Here one might question that the zoo is a metaphor for religion and animals being humans. Animals have needs to happily survive such as food, water and shelter; humans basic needs for happy survival are hope and some sort of belief. Animals in the wild represent "un-saved souls" and those animals who live within the safety of the zoo represent "saved souls" who are promised love and eternal-care.
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. The question is by doing so, do they really protect the animals or are they harming them. Some people claim that keeping animals in the zoo is not cruel as animals can get plenty to eat without having to worry about scarcity of food. Some people argue that keeping animals in zoos is cruel as animals are kept away from their natural habitat and there would be no chance for animals to socialize with each other.
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. PRO'S Zoos nowadays are not marketed as places of entertainment - they are places of education. Most modern zoos have their main emphasis on conservation and education - the reason that so many schools take children to zoos is to teach them about nature, the environment, endangered species, and conservation. Far from encouraging bad treatment of animals, zoos provide a direct
They look so calm and friendly with their graceful motions. People can not help but be curious as to what their thinking. Are the animals bored or do they want to eat people? It’s hard to gauge the state of mind of the animals. The animals have been removed from their natural habitat; however, the zoo does an excellent job recreating a false environment with the landscaping.
As a result, many children were raised with the belief that zoos are identical or better than natural habitats. By doing this zoos convince children that keeping animals in cages is good. Maybe we should stop calling them zoos and start calling them camps. This is what they are. They are camps that capture and hold animals.
Summary 2 Intensive animal farming has been the center of many questions from the general public, politicians and scientists. One of the main questions that arise is how animals are managed and handled during their life-cycle in small cages that barely fit them. Humans would not be able to suffer the many atrocities that these poor animals are having during their life cycle in a cage – tail docking for pigs and beak trimming for chickens are very painful and sometimes animals do not receive medicine to help and calm them. But many scientists argue that the definition of “well-being” is difficult to define because it depends on the animal cognition, motivation, perception and emotional states. There are solutions to better “well-being” of animals such as finding an alternative system to intensive animal farming; genetic changes the behavioral or physiological nature of the animal and therapeutic help such as tail docking or beak trimming.
People have yet to realize that their favorite type of deodorant or those good-smelling fragrances they like to put on were once tested on animals. These animals are forced to swallow or inhale large quantities of a test substance or endure the pain of having chemicals applied to their sensitive eyes and skin (Peta). Many times the results of animal tests are often not applicable to humans, but even if a product has blinded an animal, it can still be marketed to you. Many testing centers keep such animals out of their natural surroundings, until time to experiment on them. Throughout that time these animals become so unadapt to their new surroundings, they become less likely to return to their natural state which gives those experimenting more reason to test them.
Who would take offence at the sight of well-fed horses grazing on an acre field? Few people would see cruelty there, yet who would not feel sorry for a tiger in a circus trailer endlessly pacing behind the bars. By understanding that there is a number of possible conditions of captivity from national parks to battery pigs and by appreciating that we all have a threshold beyond which we will point the finger and say ‘that is cruel. There is nothing wrong with this attitude, it is perfectly rational point of view and those who hold it are genuine animal lovers with concern for animal welfare. I believe that it is cruel to keep animals in cages First of all, everyone has witnessed animal cruelty before, whether it is the neglect of a pet dog or cat or animals being captured and caged for unjust and unexplained research.
What is more, zoos are like prisons for animals as they live in small cages and do not get necessary food. In addition, animals become very aggressive and unpredictable as they get older and often attack zoo keepers and other people. However, most people think that zoos help endangered species survive. But this is not true because most rare animals are extremely difficult to breed in captivity. Besides, in zoos, it is almost impossible to meet the animals’ natural needs.
