Zoos are Animal Slave Houses

I don't understand why animal rights activists all own pets? They want to free Willy, save the polar bears, castrate puppies, but yet, they all imprison large collections of animals in their small homes. Were there any animals actually created for domestication purposes? It seems really mean, now that I think about it. I mean, I know we like touching animals. But, to keep one trapped in a human prison merely for our own entertainment? Perhaps farmers in the mid 1800s in the South just really had an affinity for Africans?

Actually, today's dogs and cats WERE bred for domestication. If you go out and find a wild dog, it's nothing like the dogs we have in our homes. Most of our pets at home are much better off domesticated than if we were to let them run off into the wild. Plus, they have the life! They get to be pet and groomed, they get fed regularly, they get all the sleep they want, they always have someone to play with them...I'd take that life.

I would agree that domesticating birds might be kind of cruel since we clip their wings and they can't really do much flying in a domesticated setting.

I'm sure someone stupid could make a claim that some Africans were better fed and better clothed in America than when they were in Africa. But, that doesn't make it right.
