Most children love going to the zoo and seeing all the different animals. Is their joy coming at an expense to the animals?
|Zoos trap animals||Zoos are important|
|Is it fair that animals are trapped in their cages their entire lives so that people can see them? Is it fair to rob them of their happiness in exchange for ours? Is it fair that we don’t really know what goes on inside zoos? No. Zoos are inhumane and should not be supported.||Zoos are the only place where children can get up close and personal with animals. Children learn about the animal kingdom and see their animal books come to life. They are educational centers which allow for an understanding of animal species.|
