None of these animals belong here. They should be free and happy.

All animals deserve to be happy and free. Animals don't belong in zoos or circuses!

Animals belong with their families and communities in the wild, where they can run free, roam across long distances, and live as nature intended.With only 0.055 square kilometers of space, the Manila Zoo “has nothing to offer animals except a life of deprivation, misery, and loneliness.I strongly criticize Manila Zoo for providing substandard care to animals. What a Zoo.

So what did you expect, that they would love to be behind bars? Its a terrible crime to keep any animal caged or confined. The zoo concept should have become obselete by now. Animals should be in their natural habitats. But in that case where would the money and the salaries come from?!!

I don't believe in cageing any animal they should be allowed to run free in there own land.
