first i did not read 2 sources, i am using my brain to do this:
imagine being stuck in a cage for most of your life. trapped not having freedom. zoo animals encounter this.they are stuck in cages having people give them food.when you think about it,animals are supposed to be in the wild,learning how to catch their own food. we humans keeping poor animals in cages for the rest of their life seems kinds unfair. imagine being in their position. being trapped,taken away from your family and friends,and most importantly not having freedom. how would you feel? using this i stand by my opinion that animals should not be kept in zoos.
another reason why zoo animals should not be kept in zoos is because of how they adapt. being in a zoo means you have to change your whole life style. new foods,new environment. being a baby in a zoo is a whole lot worse. if your a child just being born and only spending a month with your parents,before you get taken away,how would you feel? you would not know what its like to have a family,be loved,or learn how to do things you need to learn in the wild.
in conclusion,i suggest that animals should not be kept in zoos,because of environmental change,and adaption.
