Those are good points.
That's a good point, about it being worse for intelligent animals. I hadn't thought about that.

You're right, there are both good and bad parts about it!
That is sad for animals to not survive in the wild.
@Flower7 Yeah Flower so true it's sad.. The zoos could place themanimals out there but I can bank on them to lose their life and not beable to find food.. Least at the zoo they are fed and given water andthey get washed down with water if one gets dirty such as the elephants
The zoos I've seen have the open air enclosures, but the areas aren't big enough for the animals to run in. Especially not the big cats like lions and tigers. It seems unnatural for them to never be able to run around.
Yes, they most likely do live much longer in zoos than they would in the wild.
Yes, it would be very sad if the animals weren't even being taken care of.
Very sad for an animal to get depression!
Yes, but it still happens, I don't know how the caged birds feel
In some way, we are protecting them and giving them food, but still they miss their free flight
Yes, I'm sure they do!
Yes, survival in the wild definitely isn't guaranteed!
I think most zoo guests are very nice to the animals, along with the people who work there.
Also let's shut down all Zoos what happens then extinction of more animals and them need to be relocated to the wild which they don't how to live in and would face more problems.
That's true. Zoos do have a part in preventing extinction.
Probably the things learned by taking care of them in the zoo ends up being used in the wild
True, the wild can be very dangerous!
Few forgot that word
Ok, got it!
Yes, that's a big difference!
Lion Country Safari in Florida. Confined but somewhat free range The animals are somewhat tame. The 4000 pound White Rhinos are not chained. Tame like cows.The North Carolina Zoo is like Jurassic Park. Huge free range.The North Carolina Zoo
That's one way of looking at it!
