Should the concept of zoos should be nullified?
This topic is something I actually debate with someone about at least 3 times a year.
I THINK ANIMALS SHOULD BE VIEWED DIFFERENTLY THAN THE WAY THEY ARE NOW.
Let me explain…
OK let me re-iterate that one more time, just to make myself perfectly clear….
Humans should look at animals like this:
Birds don’t belong in cages. Bored, lonely, denied the opportunity to fly, deprived of companionship.
Many birds become neurotic in cages – pulling out feathers, bobbing their heads incessantly, and repeatedly pecking
A Canadian Police study found that 70 percent of people arrested for animal cruelty had past records of other violent crimes.
Alligators on farms may be beaten with hammers and axes, sometimes remaining conscious and in pain for 2 hours after skinning.
Cows produce milk for the same reason that humans do- to nourish their young – but on dairy farms calves are taken away at 1 day old
1 day old calves are fed milk replacements (including cattle blood) so that their mothers’ milk can be sold to humans .
Snakes and lizards are skinned alive because of the belief that live flaying makes leather more supple.
The skins of unborn calves and lambs – some aborted, others from slaughtered pregnant cows – are considered “luxurious.”
4 to 5 million animals die in shelters every year.
Larger animals have clamps attached to or rods forced into their mouth or anus so they can be painfully electrocuted.
Horrifying killing methods are used to keep the pelts intact that can result in extreme suffering for the animals.
Tens of thousands of horses from the United States are slaughtered every year to be used for horsemeat in Europe and Asia.
Dogs used for fighting are chained, taunted, and starved to trigger extreme survival instincts and encourage aggressiveness.
For medical experimentation animals can be burned, shocked, poisoned, isolated, starved, addicted to drugs, and brain-damaged.
More than 100 million animals every year suffer and die in cruel chemical, drug, food and cosmetic tests, biology lessons, etc.
When valid non-animal research methods are available, no law requires experimenters to use such methods instead of animals.
In the 20th century 27 animals went extinct.

Point made. Case closed. Please help us change life for these innocent animals. They do not deserve this. I wouldn’t want to be trapped in a cage. I don’t think life would be worth living if I had to see bars around me every single day, without freedom and having my entire life controlled for me. Animals DO have souls and feelings and they can understand what’s going on around them. Please, what right do we have to take control of their lives.
Some organizations that are fighting for animal rights and freedoms are:
