I am of two minds on the ZOO controversy....I agree with Claudia that ideally, zoos should only have 'captive-born' residents and species that are in danger, to protect them...BUT....there just HAS to be appropriate and sufficient space and housing for these animals.

On the other is just sad to see these magnificent creatures stuck on 'display' for humans to gawk inappropriate surroundings!

Nothing is sadder than seeing animals in cramped lifeless surroundings, where they are bored in un-natural habitat....
