The problem of keeping animals in zoos has recently been a popular topic for discussion. While some people believe that zoos are useless and dangerous for wildlife, others believe that zoos are very useful and educational.
In my view, some animals should be taken from their natural surrounding and put into zoos. There are several reasons to support my opinion. First of all, zoos help save endangered species.
The animals are protected from poaching and severe climatic conditions. Apart from that, animals do not die from hanger because they always have enough food in zoos. Specialists monitor the proper nutrition of animals, for their vitamin balance, for females during pregnancy and feeding. Furthermore, zoos are good for entertainment and education. People can come to zoos and see rare species of animals that do not live in their country or
Or children living in the city can see and touch the pets that usually live on a farm such as cows, sheep, goats, chickens,
turkey, ducks, horses, rabbits.
However, opponents of this view say that animals are stressed and exhausted in zoos. Often in large animals such as a lion or bear very small cells, their nutrition is not always sufficient, frequent travel from place to place adversely affects the health of animals. They also argue that animals live in poor conditions. Dirty cages and animal`s feeders can become a breeding ground for disease-causing bacteria, which in turn can damage animal health in zoos.
It is hard to agree with their opinion because veterinarians treat animals and constantly monitor their health. They periodically make them vaccinations, collect tests, add the necessary vitamins. Besides, now the authorities have allocate a lot of money to zoos. Owners of zoos can expand their area to arrange large waltzes for animals, so they are not crowded into small cells. There ate large cages in zoos now where the animals feel comfortable.
As already stated, I am convinced that some animals should live in zoos. After all, I wanted to say that people should gently treat the wildlife.
