The Reality of Zoos The following article was written by Michelle Carr. Confused Animal Lover from St. Louis writes, “I’m a huge animal lover, and I understand why the circus is bad for animals, but what about zoos?” Great question! Captive animals are deprived of everything that is natural and important to them, and as a result, they become bored and lonely and many even suffer from a condition called “zoochosis.” Some animals are so unhappy that they risk their lives in desperate attempts to free themselves. Animals are unable to thrive in small enclosures, especially with unnatural weather and climates. In reality, most people only spend a few seconds at each display, waiting for the animals to do something “exciting,” but they gain little, if any, true understanding of the animals. Traveling and roadside zoos are even crueler. Instead of going to the zoo, you can learn about animals by watching nature documentaries or observing the animals in their own natural habitats instead.

Animals in British zoos live in conditions 'as bad as those in the former Soviet Bloc' By Fiona Macrae Published: 00:40 GMT, 7 April 2012 | Updated: 00:41 GMT, 7 April 2012 Animals in some British zoos are kept in conditions little better than those in former Soviet Bloc countries, it was claimed last night. A major undercover investigation of zoos, wildlife parks, bird of prey centres and aquaria, revealed numerous cases of agitated animals and repetitive behaviour. Other animals were in a state of apathy, while many enclosures were dirty and drinking water was stagnant or dirty. A Bornean orang-utan living in 'horrendous' conditions at Dudley Zoo. Animals whose plight has been highlighted by the Born Free Foundation include a Bornean orang-utan living in ‘horrendous’ conditions and an Asiatic bear huddled against the wall of a bear pit at Dudley Zoo in the West Midlands. A panther, an elusive and private creature, was pictured in a barren enclosure at the zoo at the Drayton Manor theme park in Staffordshire. ‘It looks completely disinterested and that’s not how bears are.

Une loi contestée en France qui, ne se conformant pas au droit européen interdisant le gavage, est « le seul pays à [avoir] érigé la suralimentation forcée des palmipèdes en patrimoine culturel national », dénoncent Brigitte Gothière, Johanne Mielcarek et Estiva Reus, de l'association L214- Ethique & Animaux. Après l'entrée en vigueur de l'interdiction de la fabrication et de la vente de foie gras en Californie le 1er juillet dernier, les professionnels français se mobilisent, avec l'appui du gouvernement, pour contrer « le préjudice d'image » occasionné par la décision californienne. 1998: un rapport vétérinaire accablant pour le foie gras Des scientifiques interviennent en amont de l’élaboration des réglementations européennes de protection des animaux.

Are zoos a force for good or just plain cruel? | Nature Image Credit: Two women watch a giraffe at San Francisco zoo © sparky2000 In a new series of features, the Earth Times asks two leading experts to give their views on some of the hottest green topics of the 21st century. This week, we ask: Are zoos a force for good, or just an out-dated mode of animal cruelty? Tackling the issue head-on are Liz Tyson and Rosalind Smith. Liz Tyson is the director of the Captive Animals' Protection Society, a UK-based charity leading the campaign to end the use of animals in entertainment. Rosalind Smith is a marketing assistant at Newquay Zoo Environmental Park in Cornwall, England. With the internet, as well as DVDs, 3D TV etc, are zoos really necessary to teach people about animals in the 21st century? Rosalind: I would say definitely. Liz: No, not at all. A zoo shows the animal completely out of context, outside of its natural habitat and the ecosystem it was designed to inhabit. What are the differences between 'good zoos' and 'bad zoos'?
