Surely wild animals should not be kept in captivity. All over the world, wild animals are forced to live in zoos for our entertainment. In my opinion, this practice is unfair to the animals themselves and should be banned.
Firstly, life in captivity is unnatural for wild animals. For instance, they are unable to hunt or breed as they do in the wild. This causes them to lose the natural abilities they possess.
Moreover, in captivity, wild animals have a lack of space to roam. For example, captive animals are often kept in cages or small enclosures and some event in chains. This has a negative effect on their welfare.
On the other hand, keeping animals in captivity protects endangered species. For example, some animals would become extinct without human intervention. In particular, those whose natural habitats are disappearing. In these cases, keeping animals in zoos is beneficial because it protects them from extinction.
To sum up, I strongly believe that wild animals should not be kept in captivity. To my mind, they should be allowed to live in their natural habitats. However an exception can be made if animals are endangered.
