I see them more as prisons.

When acquiring animals, they are contributing to cimenes against wildlife and poaching.
Zoos should change their business to engage in conservation and animal rescue, instead of profiting from them.

If zoos provided a good sanctuary to rare or abused animals, then that would be great. To have a zoo with animals contained, merely for spectator pleasure is a form of enslavement and abuse in its own right.

I don't like zoos, as, among other things, they put profit before the welfare of the animals.

I don't go to them, nor do I like them!
