Week 32 – Wild Animals In The Zoo
DID WE MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION, KEEPING WILD ANIMALS IN THE ZOO?
Some people may say yes, and the reason is that we could help to prevent species from becoming extinct and to provide educational programs; other may say that it is wrong and selfish to keep wild animals in the zoo, taking them away from their home and freedom. What do you think? I love going to the zoo, but I feel sad when I see the animals looking sad and lifeless. It makes me think that they don’t seem to like being kept in the zoo for some reason. Maybe you would say that I’m just being subjective. (Yes, I am.) There is no factual basis to support what I’m thinking. Who are we to speak for the animals?
If we could talk to animals and learn what they really feel about being locked behind bars, do you think that things would have been the same?
