Should animals be kept in zoos yes or no?
No, animals should not be kept in captivity because they have the right to live freely in the wild. They are living creatures just like us and no one has us in cages. I don’t think it’s fair to the animals that we take them away from their families when they are babies. They don’t get to grow up with their family.
Why we should close all zoos?

Why shouldn’t we close zoos?
