Fig. A young tiger who has been hand reared out for a walk with her rearer and emotional companion.   Wild animals are kept in captivity for a variety of reasons and in a range of environments, including zoos and circuses, scientific laboratories and also as pets at home. Caring for a captive animal takes time, money and knowledge to provide everything the animal needs, such as food, water and the correct environment, to prevent suffering and.

These ecological pressures have shaped animals’ food foraging behaviour. A species’ natural food types must be respected for the welfare of animals held in captivity (Newberry ; Young ). Very often, captive animals are given a very rich diet that greatly reduces their foraging behaviour and can lead to weight problems. CAPTIVE ANIMALS. Born Free is committed to preventing animal suffering and protecting threatened species in their natural habitats. We strongly oppose the exploitation and keeping of wild animals in captivity and campaign to Keep Wildlife in the Wild. We work to end any activities that negatively impact wild animals living in captivity.

Man and Animal in the Zoo. To our eyes, many animals seem to suffer from forms of mental illness. Whether they are pets, or animals kept in ill-managed zoos and circuses, they can become excessively sad, anxious, or even.
