I believe that animals should not be denied everything that is natural and important to them and have every aspect of their lives controlled and managed for the sake of human "entertainment." Animals at zoos are housed in cages that don't come close to the jungles, deserts, and forests that are their natural homes. They have no choice in their diets, mates, or living companions. What is a few fleeting moments of distraction for visitors means a lifetime of misery for animals. By signing my name, I pledge to boycott all zoos.
