    Your argument was 'we should ban zoos cos animals aren't for our entertainment' - but musicians and actors are animals who exist for our entertainment.

    Child actors are often very heavily pressured by their parents


    So zoos would be okay if we paid the animals, or gave them rewards e.g. food?
    We should ban zoos because wild animals, unable to consent, are forcefully taken from their habitat and paraded around in front of us for the sole purpose of entertainment which is neither necessary nor fair, I agree with these habitats being protected by conservation organisation to assist in the survival of these animals but places like zoos and seaworld (where animals are often mistreated and forced to breed) are cruel. Also, no way can you compare a crib, for babies to protect them from getting hurt to a cage where a grown animal cannot be free to live it's life as it could out in the wild

    This will be the next big thing for campaign groups now that the Sea World orca issue has been half taken care of. I say half as they are just the biggest name keeping orcas, there's other parks around the world doing the same.

    I've been to a number of zoos and I can see where people come from on this. Keeping large mammals in small enclosures isn't ideal. But in countries like the UK there's no real alternative. Sure we could open some large safari park with square miles of space for people to see them in a more natural environment but winter would be a problem.
