• Ban the zoos

    Zoo should be banned because their enclosures are to small, they are forced to breed, animals get sick because of different climates and human handling, they get poked and proded, also over half of the animals are born in captivity and a few years ago a zoo admitted to killing monkeys because they were to dare to run and keep so they shot the monkeys and left them to die!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Ban All Zoos.

    They are horrible. Animals should not be treated the way they are in zoos. They get crammed up in ttight spaces, and fed the wrong food. They survive WAY longer in the wild than in zoos. Animals should not be treated this way. Zoos are horrible, and animals should rome free.

  • ;lo ;p .Ll

    Is they take good care for the animals.As you know in Edinburgh zoo the pandas have had babies for all we know the pandas could be dead hunted and lots of animals would be dead what would you do if it was your children that was getting hunted would you just sit there. Cretan animals like the Scottish wildcat are breading well in zoos but in the wild they would die and they are only 400 wildcats left in the world
    They're hundreds of animals that are going extinct. So why would you want animals extinct. So, what if the zoo isn't the best in the world. At least the animals have a place to stay. Also over 500 million people visit a zoo a year. Now those of you who said no.

  • Zoos should be banned.

    In zoo animals live in cages. It is like putting them in captivity. Animals can't live in their natural way. Animals should be in the wild, where they belong. If they are living in zoos, they are never going to learn how to hunt, or how to deal with their lives by themselves.

  • It's not right

    Animals should not be cramped in a little space for there whole life, Owend by humans who will toe hire them. It's really not fair. Like how would you like being locked up in a cage for your whole life? That just teaches people to do bad things with animals. For example kids will see what they do to these wild animals so when the kids see one they will try to do it but they will get hurt.

  • Cruelty to animals. That Is zoos

    Zoos don't care about the health of animals. They just want animals to get money. Taking animals out of their natural habitat is cruel (unless their habitat is destroyed or their species is nearly extinct). The only purpose of a zoo is to entertain the human race. We should ban zoos.

  • It's not fair

    Would you want to be taken from your parents and sent with people you don't no to be looked at for people's enjoyment . Because that is what we are doing in zoo's , how cruel are we . Its like a jale for animals that have not done anything . How do you think we are making them feel .

  • Zoos = cruel

    Zoos make it so that animals are unable to develop necessary skills they develop in the wild! Some zoo animals are born in a zoo, raised in a zoo and die in a zoo. All without seeing the outside world! Isn't that really sad. Do the zoo keepers feel no pain to see helpless animals in captivity?

  • Zoos hurt animals

    Lots of zoos have feed machines where you get the feed to give to the animals the animals take all the food that they can fit in their mouth then eventually barf because they ate to much and also people and kids going to the zoo will knock or tap on the glass to see the animals when there is a sign that says not to. Finally, lots of people and even zookeepers (GASP) yes even zookeepers abuse the animals like when you get your picture taken with a boa a lot of kids and people play with the snake and the snake will slither away and think to its self I don't want a part of this I am very conscious of animals and always want the best for them, Bookster101

  • Zoo must banned ):

    Because animals should have freedom and have a chance to see the wild the zoo capture the animals and lock them in the little enclosure the animals feel sad being lock up as you people are happily in the zoo see the animals being lock up. You heartless creature this is not what the animals want those people who works in the zoo, please let the animals go.

  • Zoos shouldn't be banned!

    Are u crazy!? ZOOS ARE THE BEST IN THE WORLD! They protect the endangered animals and then they release them to the wildhttp://www.Debate.Org/search?Q=Zoos shouldn't be closed
    I rather died then see a poor meerkart. Students will be offered places in good universities and have a well-paid career. So yeah! Umm

  • No, we shouldn't.

    No, I don't believe we should ban zoos at all. Zoos are a great place for families to go to and an excellent place for children to learn and see some animals up close that they wouldn't normally see. Zoos are a fun and safe place for kids and a good place for animals, too. We should not ban them.

  • No. Zoos should be habitats for endangered animals.

    There are many animals that have become endangered due to extreme hunting practices in other countries. Zoos provide a safe place to rehabilitate a potentially lost species, and preserve it for future generations. Once these animals are gone they will not come back. At least we get the benefit of seeing them up close. Zoos should be held accountable when negligence causes the escape of these wild animals, because no matter how beautiful and majestic, they are still wild animals with the ability to kill. As long as we have a Species preserved in a safe place, we can preserve the Species.

  • We should not ban zoos.

    We should not ban zoos because of the educational benefits we as humans receive from them. Most of the animals in zoos are very well treated and live much longer than they would in the wild. Being able to visit a zoo and see rare and wild animals is an amazing experience which should not be taken away from the public.

  • No, we should not ban zoos.

    This is a tricky situation, but there are a lot of good zoos out there. Zoo keepers raise some of these animals from birth and they would never know how to survive out of captivity. Zoos are also a good place to learn and study about different animals. Where many would die in the wild, they are given a chance to thrive in a zoo.

  • Zoo's should not be banned

    Zoo's should not be banned because people want to see animal's that live in certain part's of the world. And animal's have aid when they get sick or hurt. People who love zoo's would love zoo's to stay. Also to have the chance to see predator's without geting to close. That is why I don't like zoo's to be banned

  • Animals should stay in zoos and not be banned

    Zoos should not be banned because young children might never have another chance to see rare animals ever again unless they go out into the wild just to see animals you would be wasting a lot of money to fly or drive to the wild besides, zookeepers take very good care of their beloved animals as if they were their own children. And children in 20 years time they would ask us what is a zoo. That's why i think zoos should not be banned.

  • No, Don't Ban Zoos

    We shouldn't ban zoos because some endangered animals live there and are able to breed :). They're a great place for families to visit and they are educational too. If there was an animal that was extinct in the wild it might be kept in as zoo and children could only be able to see that animal in a zoo.

  • We should not ban zoos

    No, we should not ban zoos.

  • Don't Ban Zoos!

    Zoos educate people and can help breed endangered species. They allow us to learn about animals we don't know about, and how to conserve them. I do, however, think we should ban circuses. They mistreat animals and sometimes even hurt the animals. And at zoos, we can also stare at the animals in awe, because they are majestic.
