Persuasive Writing by Sonnie

Why animals shouldn’t be in captivity
I strongly believe that animals shouldn’t
be held in captivity. I will provide you with many
reasons as to why animals shouldn’t be held
in captivity.

Animals are born free and they should be
allowed to be free. Zoos are not the natural
environment for animals. The wild or jungle
are their natural habitat . In zoos, animals are
kept in enclosures and in cages.this makes
the animals sad,bored and depressed because
of the limited space.Would you like it if you got
kept in a cage or enclosures?


  1. Kia Ora Sonnie,

    I agree with you. I don't like to see animals kept in captivity, especially if they were born in the wild. I think it would be different if the animals had been born in the zoo and didn't know how to survive in the wild. I think Zookeepers have to work with hard to make sure animals aren't bored, sad or depressed. I have seen some documentaries where they try to create special experiences for animals in the Zoo. Have you seen any documentaries about this? My answer is no, I wouldn't like to be kept in a cage or enclosure!
