The idea of zoos is that these areas are a refuge for different species to be found there. In most cases the security that it has for the visitors is very good, however, the protection towards animals is an almost non-existent, to this is added the sacrifice and abuse.
There is a history where the animals are hurt due to the poor infrastructure they have in some zoos, or are killed by criminals or the workers themselves.

The captivity of crazy animals
The animals in zoos sleep and eat too, exhibiting a behavior that rarely, if ever, seen in the wild.
Large animals such as bears and big cats walking incessantly. Primates and birds are automutilan, and the chimps and gorillas become overly aggressive.
Animals in captivity do not show any interest in the reproduction, or, on the contrary, are obsessed with sex.
A study conducted by the Association for the protection of Animals in Captivity, concluded that 90% of public aquariums analyzed showed animals with neurotic behavior, such as interacting with boundaries that are transparent, take constantly the head above the surface of the water, spinning around an imaginary object, and recline on your side with frequency and rub against the floor of the tank.
Danger behind bars
It is presumed that in many zoos in the country, the animals have been poisoned, deprived of veterinary care and burned alive in fires. Many have died after eating coins, plastic bags and other objects thrown into their cages.
Other animals have been beaten, beaten and stolen by people who managed to have access to their facilities.
To natural disasters such as floods, fires, or hurricanes, animals are often abandoned to their fate.
Zoos know that a newborn animal will attract many visitors, which is why they accelerate constantly the reproduction of the animals, thereby achieving a surplus of adult animals who are less attractive by visitors.
In consequence, the zoos periodically exchanged, provided on loan, sold, swapped and stored adult animals that they don’t want.
Zoos of the future
The industry of zoos should cease to be a prison to become a refuge, where the rights and welfare of the individual animals are the top priority.
Indica to the zoo in your locality that the public will support this change and exígele that stop the reproduction of the species to provide a greater space to fewer animals and give place to the wild animals that have been confiscated from cages, basements, circuses, and reservations.
