Zoos are unnatural environs for any animal, especially elephants, who NEED acres and acres to roam. Very cruel to keep them in zoos, no matter how large the enclosure. Bottom line, it's cruel. There's also the matter of overbreeding. Look at Denmark zoos, recently in the news for killing several perfectly healthy baby giraffes simply because they had too many. Unconscionable.

Mixed feelings - we have brought so many species to the brink of extinction that we now need to protect them. I think perhaps sanctuaries/animal preserves are better than zoos. Seems that many zoos ill-treat their animals, and/or slaughter some animals to feed others. Either way it's not good.

Should Extinct species be brought back to life? (when science makes this possible)
