Points in favor :-

  • Confining animals in enclosures is morally wrong. They belong to forests. Forcing space imitations can suffer them psychologically.
  • Bringing wild animals from forests and arranging them a stay in the middle of cities is potentially dangerous. More number of people will be in a vulnerable condition, if any wild animal escapes from the zoo.
  • In most cases, animal families are divided to place them in different zoos. This is completely unethical and causes a lot of trauma to them.

Points against :-

  • Some animals are becoming extinct. Hence human intervention is necessary to not let this happen. In zoos, these animals and birds can get food and space to live and to grow their species.
  • As more and more people are aware of animal rights, the conditions at zoos have improved a lot.
  • Some species cannot survive in the wild. Zoos are the only option to help them live.
  • Zoos protect animals from hunting, predators and starving.
  • Without zoos, people may not see many animals in real.

Conclusion :-

Instead of confining them and entertaining people in zoos, building more sanctuaries and allowing animals and birds to live and roam freely is ethical as well as practical.

    According to me zoo should be abolished because we everybody likes freedom , we don’t want confinement so animals also enjoy freedom. Childrens are looks good into their mother’s lap and animals are looks good into the forest. People goes to the zoo they enjoy , but when we see animals looks like sick we feel bad and people throw stone , stick etc to disturb it , it looks unhappy. If Govt take steps zoo abolished and animals leave in the forest . But forest department should take care of animals it should protect from illegal poachers. Sometimes we see group of herds leave the forest to search the food and people kills tiger, elephants etc . sometimes elephants run over by the train on the railway tracks. Forest security should take care of them. Animals also important in the world , everybody should take care of them.

      Rightly said Tinku! Zoos restricts animals from roaming freely.
