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.
• 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.
Zookeepers give the animals their food, while vets will provide the animals preventive medicine, quarantine and many more. Furthermore, many zoos share the mission of educating the public, protecting endangered species and breeding them. However, there are some zoos that might be purely profit-driven. The zookeepers treat the animals very cruelly, by hitting the animals if they misbehave, by keeping them in small cages and forcing them to perform in front of the audience. Animals in zoos feel that no habitat can beat their natural habitat.
Ethical Treatment of Animals Animals have played an important role in many aspects of this world; some look upon these roles with favoritism, some with disgust. Animals give live birth and are considered different from humans by some people because of their behavior. Some animals are consumed as food by humans and other animals or trapped for their furs. Many times people get animals as pets and neglect them. Some animals are pulled out of their habitat and are used as research; yet some humans think they do not deserve any rights because they are animals.
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. For example, a tiger being captured , his habitat is wide open savannas, how would he feel being locked up in a cage that has little, let enough space for running around, hunting or surviving. This is just another sign for the restriction of freedom for animals, for those who don’t understand the seriousness of the situation towards the animal, let’s just say it was you, caged up, no space to really roam around, nothing to do, you would go insane after a while, this is exactly the same for tigers and many other types of animals. People may argue that animals seem fine when they’re caged up at a zoo; the fact is this is only part of the whole picture. Trying to assess cruelty is made all the more difficult because we do not always know, and cannot always see, what becomes of the animals at night when all the people have gone home.
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.
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.
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.
‘Experimenting with animals is worthy as it saves human life’ INTRO: Using animals to advance scientific knowledge understand disease and develop and test new medicines and life saving cures is a very controversial topic in today’s society. Whilst some go to extremes such as using violence to protect animals, others see no moral problems with animal testing for medical research as it is benefiting humans. FOR: Animal testing in the past has proved to be very successful, as it has developed vaccines to diseases such as TB, rabies and mumps. Every medical therapy has evolved from animal research for his reason it is believed that Animal testing is a good thing. If a doctor wants to use animals for research they have to prove that the harm of the animal equals the benefit it will give the human, also, through legislation all lab animals must be protected form cruelty of mistreatment.
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? I strongly believe that we should not keep animals in zoos because captivity is not natural for them and it is a constant stress to a wild animal. Keeping animals in zoos harms them by denying them freedom of movement and association. What is more, zoos are like prisons for animals as they live in small cages and do not get necessary food.
