Animals should not be kept in cages because it is very cruel. They don"t have
enough space to exercise, they don"t learn life skills, therefore there are bad
consequences and they will be very unhappy.

No it isn't cruel to lock animals in cages because they can spread diseases to humans or run away from their owners. Animals are unpredictable and are hostile at times. Thus, why cages are not cruel.

If animals are kept in cages they will not have enough space to exercise. This is
cruel because they cannot stay fit which will lead to them being so unhealthy
and sick. Space is a big issue! It can lead to animals dying. We must stop animals
being kept in cages!

There are worse things in this world than a bunch of animals being locked up. No offense, but were talking about a bunch of mindless animals which only goal in life is to reproduce and survive. Look, care about your own SPECIES. Your a human, i'm a human. Just care about your kind and not a bunch of locked up animals.

If animals are kept in cages they will not learn any life skills. Animals are usually
hand-fed when they"re in cages. If they are let out into the wild, what will they
do? There is no one to feed them. They will not know how to hunt for food so
then they will starve and die. They also will not know how to make friends. For
example, if a tiger was let out into the wild, it will be left out of groups and will
get attacked.
It is cruel to keep animals in cages! They will be very unhappy! They don"t have
any company or anything to keep them occupied. Let"s say an elephant is in a
circus. They are kept in a cage all the time except for when they are
performing. When they are stuck in the cage they will be lonely, then they won"t
ever listen to the trainer. The elephant will certainly go crazy on stage and
attack humans. It all comes back to one main point. Animals should not be kept
in cages. It is so cruel!
In conclusion, animals must not be

Actually animals already know basic instincts such as eating. So it will probably survive in the wilderness. Anyways, animals should be locked up because they are a menace to society,in fact it also helps endangered animals from extinction . And for the love of god, stop caring about a bunch of animals that only care about themselves. Care about your own race,
