Caged animals in zoos are deprived of their normal society, their families and mates.
Tigers canâ€™t run, birds canâ€™t soar the sky, monkeys canâ€™t swing through the trees, and elephants canâ€™t roam over large distances.
Animals which would naturally roam for tens of miles a day, tread the same few paces. Some of the fastest animals on earth live in pens so small that they could not gather pace to a trot, let alone full speed.
Some zoo enclosures deprive the prisonersâ€™ most basic behaviors including exercise, social interaction and bathing.
