There are many animals who do not belong in a zoo and cannot live a healthy life in one. They are stuck in captivity –sometimes small space– can have social anxiety from lack of interaction with other species of their own kind and constant encounters with humans. If they are brought to a zoo at a young age and sometimes later sent into the wild, they usually cannot fend for themselves. One example of an animal that should not be in captivity is a bear. Bears are naturally curious and wander. With limited space and resources, they cannot thrive in a zoo the same way they would in the wild.
