The Truth about Zoos
Transcript of The Truth about Zoos
Why? Well here are a couple reasons:
zoo animals don't live in their natural habitat, they only show shadows of wild behavior
teaches people it is okay to lock up animals
people only spend a couple of minutes at each exhibit, looking for entertainment
Zoos = abused animals
their habitats are 100x smaller than their natural habitats
they can't live in their natural ways
If they get bored:
they start pacing their cages and be driven insane
there's a possibility of death!
Stressed out animals = not good!
Did you know?
stress levels sky-rocket in small cages
if stressed too much, big cats start licking chunks off their fur and eat their tails
Mood altering drug
symptoms of the disease include swaying back and forth while sitting
after the symptoms are noticed, animals are given the mood-altering drug, which makes them act normal for public viewing
National Zoo in D.C. fed their red pandas rat poison!
Tweddle Farm Zoo left dead animals to rot on the floors!
a fish can be paralyzed with too many camera flashes
There should only be 5 or 6 crocodiles in this enclosure!
