Pro starts in first round. No semantics or trolling. Pro must also pass on final round.

I personally see the matter of wild life, as that of human life, the wilderness is their home, and if you are being attacked by those wild animals when you're invading their houses, well it's their right to defend their homes. It's a natural instinct for both animals and humans to protect them selves from predators, and it's well known to everyone that most animals, not to say all of them, only attack when they are scared and feel fear. So if you don't invade their privacy you won't be hurt. As for humans, if they are attacked, they doubtlessly will protect them selves and fight back. We can't argue that if you are attacked by a killer or thief at your home, you'll fight for your safety and home.
So in that case why keep them captive, when we are the ones invading their homes, obliging them to attack us. And we can save everyone the trouble and let them be in their natural homes, and ourselves healthy in our cities.
Also it has been proved many times, that some kinds of animals if raised from the beginning of their lives they can be perfectly harmless to human kind.

1. Zoos act as an educational tool. Many kids can visit zoos first hand to learn about all different types of wild animals up close and personal.

2. Zoos often times act to prevent species from going extinct. Some species on the brink of extinction are actually saved by being protected from poachers and predators in a secure environment.

3. Keeping animals in captivity allows researchers more time to closely study and examine animal to learn all types of things.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct - Con. Pro forfeited a majority of rounds, which is rarely acceptable in any debate setting. Arguments - Con. Pro failed to present any rebuttals for the challenges raised by Con. This was a failure to maintain BOP by Pro and therefore Con wins.
