Should There Be Zoos?

As we read Ivan the One and Only, think about how you feel about wild animals being kept in zoos.  Does your opinion change as you get further into Ivan's story?

No I don't think there should be zoos because the zoo owners take them away from their family,not only that it is disrespectful to "kidnap" Somone, but it also very lonely for the animal

I think that there should not be zoos, because animals have longer lives in the wild then they have in the zoo & when animals get put in the zoo they get taken away from there family.

No, I don't think there should be zoos because they don't give them the nurturing and care that they need. Zoos separate animals from their families. This makes the animals feel lonely and frightened. Secondly, wild animals in zoos don't get the exercise they need because they are kept in cages that are not big enough. Finally, I don't think there should be zoos because zoo keepers do not give the animals any affection. These are a few reasons why I don't think there should be zoos.

Some zoos are bad and some are good. Like zoos that are involved with conservation are good. But other zoos may not even have enough money to feed there animals properly. Sometimes they don't even get a companion. So personally I am against some kind of zoos and for other kinds of zoos which are work towards conservation.

There shouldn't be zoos because animals need space and they need to live a good life.

I think there should not be zoos because they keep animals in small cages and animals want to be free in the wild with their family and friends,but instead they are locked up in a cage.And that is why I think there should not be zoos.

I think that there should be zoos because it protects the animals from people who want to kill them (poachers).

I think there should not be zoo's because anyways the most dangerous animals live in areas that are far away from us and cant harm us. they are also with there family's and not kept at the zoo alone. As a person i would not like to be kept away from my family so I'm sure animals feel that way too!
