Animals are not source of entertainment. They belong to their own habitat and once they are out of their comfort zone they tend to lose their health, appetite and the will power to live life in captivity. Obviously who would want to live in a captivity! One should always think in the same way similarly as they are treated as pets.
Animals don’t deserve to live in Zoos to entertain Humans, neither beautiful majestic Orcas deserve to perform at Sea World for what they are not meant for. These artificial caged enclosure is not enough space for the wild animals to survive. This is specially for those species who roam in larger distances in their natural habitat. According to the sources, Lions and Tigers have 18000 times less space in the zoos than they have in the wild. Let alone Polar bears have one million times less space as compared to their own habitat. In such artificial habitat, majority of the animals suffer from behavioral problems, that is because of the less space given to them. How devastating it is to see that these beautiful animals die prematurely, majestic animals like Elephants live in the wild three times more than those in the zoos. 40% of the lion cubs die before they are one month of age, 30% of cubs die before they are six months old and the reason behind these deaths are the lack of predation. In the wild, they hunt for themselves which is another form of their physical activity unlike in the zoos. One of the majored reason of anxiety and behavior problem. Circus, Zoo and SeaWorld are all the something, they provide unnatural habitat, a place where the poor animals are trained horrifically, tortured till they learn the specific tricks, even the beautiful beast (Tiger) if they are unable to perform a specific trick they start having seizures and yet they are hit by hard iron rod, none the less, even the beautiful Orcas are taken away from their families, kept in a captivity, starved till they learn the tricks, given a limited amount of tank where they keep roaming around with other orcas in depression.
Captivity is unhealthy even for Humans, no wonder we tend to seek diversions in any way possible. But, what about the poor animals, who cannot speak up for their rights, who cannot raise their voice what they want and neither can they complain about the space they are living!
How ironic and yet we complain about ourselves and our lives!
