Why I think zoos are bad

I think that zoos are harsh and horrible.

Firstly, animals have feelings just like us, so why do we treat them differently?  How do we treat them harshly? We lock them in cages, and we take them away from there family. My question is, why do we do this?  The only reason why animals turn on us and hurt us, is because we hurt them and they are just fighting back, and I don't blame them. Animals are just like us, so treat them nicely.

Secondly, animals have no space to do much in, its shameful really and cruel to the animals. Most zoo keepers are careless and have barely any feeling for the animals. It's tragic really yet we go and laugh at them, but in reality the animals are suffering. Is this really how we want to spend our lives, watching helpless animals?

Thirdly, it rids of natural animal instincts, meaning that they can not hunt, bathe or possibly survive, if let free in the wild. People don't think that much about it but this is one, of the reasons species are dying off, and the reason why we are getting more hunters around these areas. Animals need instincts to survive just like we need food and water.

Finally,  I have a question for you. How would you like it if you were locked  in a cage till death? Not so great is it This is what zoo animals do and its harsh.  If you really think about it, zoos are just jails for animals that didn't do anything, other animals are just confused cell mates. Well there where ways that we could have prevented this from happening but we chose none! hopefully you can see what I'm on about.

That is why I think zoos are harsh and wicked.

Hey Shaydon. I liked the way you made clear statements at the start of your paragraphs, then added relevant detail. Your use of rhetorical questions was good. Check to make sure that your sentences all make perfect sense. Also, take note of small spelling errors like: there or their or they're and where or were.
