No. Wild animals belong in their natural habitat. Imprisoning them for profit is wrong.

Depends, but I feel most zoos are prisons.

A really good zoo with all facilities woud't do any harm as it's good for people and especially kids to come in contact with wild animals and be taught to love, repect, protect and care for them.

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.
