Animals should be freed from zoos

Balacafa

I have done this debate twice now but my opponent has either forfeited or provided a very weak argument each time. This time I am making it so that only a debater ranked better than me (in terms of elo and win ratio). This will ensure that I can debate this topic properly. As Con I will be arguing that animals should be kept in zoos. Therefore, Pro will be arguing that animals should be freed from zoos and returned to their natural habitat.

The phrase "makes you compromise with moral values" in the sense is that we have to sacrifice our moral values in order to gain success but the thing is that by sacrificing our moral values it is not possible to gain success permanently. The reason is that real success is not present in...
