I have always loved the zoo. I love to see wild animals up close that I might not otherwise see in their natural habitats...Still, a small part of me can't help but feel skeptical. It bothers me to see that although the animal's habitats look fitting to their natural biomes, some still aren't big enough (for example: in my zoo, the leopard that always paces back and forth, the rhinos, etc.) I am very against circuses, as animals are turned into over worked robots forced into doing ridiculous stunts for the entertainment of the ignorant. Should I be against zoos too, or am I wrong in doubting them?
