  • They shouldn't be locked in cages or any small place

    I think animals should be in zoos because they are going to be extinct if not. But I do not like what some zoos are doing. The cages should not be for animals. Animals in zoos need enough space. But some zoos are abusive and should be banned. While others that care for animals should not be banned. Make enclosures that resemble the wild and be with actual families. If no one can do this, then send animals to natural reserves. I disagree with what zoos are doing with the animals, so please do everything to make them happy or zoos shouldn't exist.

  • There is a lot of lions in the wild so it will not make a difference

    Lions are in a lot of place that we have not be or seen. The lion is a big cat that hunts and kills its prey really fast and provides that meat to the rest of the pack. All the people feel sorry for them because they think the animals dont deserve to be there. Lions kill and do bad in the wild and the same goes to the people in prison, they do bad things but locked up for the same reason.

  • No, they shouldn't.

    Now, we have had incidents of people getting killed or limbs lost because of animals. It is not their fault! The fault goes to the person who was messing with it. So, they should be locked, just in a bigger cage. Also, increase the security night and day to get less of a risk of an injury. Like I said earlier, it's not their fault.

  • They should be kept in zoos

    They will not live in the wild with people killing all of the animals that they have in the zoos.Also all of the kids that are little can not go out and see them by exploring the wild that is dangerous to have a two year old out side in the wild to try and find a hippo for example.

  • I pretty much agree

    As long as they are treated well. With the right conditions, they should be in zoos. There is no harm, except for that European zoo with the giraffe and the lions. The animals are out of harms way. They will most likely have a longer life span than being in the wild.

  • If it's a good zoo, YES!

    In a good zoo, animals are fed, cleaned, given a family and lots of love. They have good veterinary care, plenty of food, no natural predators... People see it as a prison, but in reality, the wild is very dangerous. There are thousands of predators, competitors for the scarce food, termites, fleas, not to mention in the wild, some parents eat other parent's young. I believe that many of you should read Life of Pi and see a certain paragraph on the author's point of view, as it sums this up quite well.

  • Animals should be locked up in zoos

    Animals should be locked up in zoos. This is because of the fact that zoos are entertaining and educational. Not all animals should be locked-up in zoos, but some should be. The zoos should have regulations and measures put into place so that the animals are treated well, and are happy.

  • Zoos are conservation points.

    Yes, animals should be locked up in zoos. Thanks for the loaded question! Most of the animals found in zoos today have been born in captivity. Also, in many zoos there are endangered species being held in custody in order to implement breeding programs so that they can be reintroduced to their native habitat.

  • Yes, life in a zoo is better than life in the wilds


    Just as housecats live longer than strays, virtually all
    wild animals live longer in captivity. They never go hungry. They never need to
    fight for their food, and if they get injured their wounds are tended. They are
    cared for if they become ill. Finally, when they become old and slow, food and
    water are still available to them, and they need not fear being taken down by a
    young lion. Zoos were built to educate and entertain humans, but from an animal’s
    point of view, they provide a long and healthy life.





  • Animals should be locked up in zoos.

    Zoos are an important part of our culture and they are a good way for kids to learn about animals. Kids can see animals even if they do not live in their native countries. Everyone can remember childhood field trips to the zoo and all the excitement that came from these excursions.

  • No no no

    Why do animals have to be locked up for our amusement or to make money. They are living creatures equal to us some are even smarter than us. I think its just wrong. I know that some of them could go extinct but thats our fault to cause we hunt them for money.

  • Animals should be free

    Animals need to be around three habit and they shouldn't be separated by there family.Just in case if you don't understand I will put it like this let's just say that image if it was you and you were separated from your family and your honme and you were in a cage how would you feel.

  • I say no

    Why should animals be locked up its bad for he heath and hygiene and the would get less food and water as if they were in the wild they get their self as much food they need same as water it is so sad to see them in the zoo upset and angry i love animals so much <3 <3

  • No its not right

    I dont think that anamals should be locked in cages because then they might not get food and water also they might have a worse life and not a lot of freedom that they can have in the wild and if they get realessed into the wild they will not be good

  • No its not right.

    Its not okay because it hurts the animal and it is not being nice that they need stay in a cage and they do not want to be free and live the life
    they want and if you go in the cage to give them their food they might what to attack you.

  • No its not right.

    Its not okay because it hurts the animal and it is not being nice that they need stay in a cage and they do not want to be free and live the life

  • Animals should not be locked up in zoo's

    Zoos are for fun not education, which means we are locking up animals and hurting them for our amusement. Imagine being locked up, how would it feel.....Depressing. Being locked up can be depressing, boring and cause strange behavior, which includes banging head, swaying side to side, being bored, and depressed. So how would you like it? And this is why animals should not be locked up in zoo's. Think about it.

  • Cages, Oh heck no!

    Despite their professed concern for animals, zoos can more accurately be described as “collections” of interesting animals than as actual havens or homes. Even under the best of circumstances at the best of zoos, captivity cannot begin to replicate wild animals’ habitats. Animals are often prevented from doing most of the things that are natural and important to them, like running, roaming, flying, climbing, foraging, choosing a partner, and being with others of their own kind. Zoos teach people that it is acceptable to interfere with animals and keep them locked up in captivity, where they are bored, cramped, lonely, deprived of all control over their lives, and far from their natural homes.
