should they live in zoos or not. i think they should becuse they are dangorus
Timewalker

Con

I, as Con, accept. I will be arguing against elephants living in zoos.

First of all, elephants are dangerous, but there are many places where humans cannot enter. The elephants can live here, without harming any elephants. A safari is a good spot, for example. Many natural forests also meet this criteria.

Second, elephants are animals like us that have a working nervous system. We do not know if they are experiencing consciousness, but they do experience basic necessities such as a requirement for other animals. Most zoos do not cater to this need.

Safaris are better than zoos in most regards because a safari allows humans to view animals without any danger and it allows elephants and other animals to roam around in a very vast environment with little interference from humans.
