When we really think about it, we have to admit that zoos around the world aren't the perfect places for the animals that have to live in way too small cages or enclosures with hardly any entertainment apart from the visitor who has to see them living in such conditions. Despite these problems that afflict all zoos, they do provide visitors with a selection of local and exotic wildlife. Anyway most of us like going to the zoo, especially kids.
