-Although zoos seem to be a great way to educate ourselves on wildlife, in reality, they're not. They do not give us the real animals we're looking for. Most animals in zoos have zoochosis because of being placed in fake, inadequate boxes that only cause them physical and mental harm. They force animals into changing all of their life habits and personal needs.
If you want to see the real animals, in real environments, safaris and animals sanctuaries are the way to go. Zoos are not.

-A big issue is the treatment and keeping of the animals, they are kept in close quarters and abused which causes unnatural behaviors from the animals due to the inhumane captivity. Without these conditions/animals in circuses, less animals will develop mental issues and abnormalities due to the circumstances of which they are forced to live.
-Certain polls have been done that show it is very possible to get a unanimous ban on animals being used in circus acts, but there are still many people who support the entertainment opportunities it presents. 9
