Are you kidding? I've seen them on 'You've Been Framed' attacking people and stealing things, no wonder they're locked up!

Actually to be fair I do generally agree.. But some animals are born in captivity and would not survive in the wild. This is due to zoos clearly but is nothing that can be changed now. In addition Twycross zoo do an amazing job and there animals have large enclosures.

If it weren't for the breeding programs in some zoo's certain animals wouldn't even exist anymore.

Couldn't see this on their website. Could you please add more details?
Last time it snowed I went and they didn't have this offer on Wasn't worth the full price either in the cold, with many animals hiding, but this is a decent price.

Gutted I love so far away!
I work near there, and there were quite a few cars stranded/stuck on the roads around there on Friday. If you do go, take care!

And lets not forget the breeding programs they have, they work pretty well.
Went last week when it was just cold and all the animals were in hiding. Wouldn't go even at this price

Yes, and risk crashing and/or being stranded. Wouldn't go for free unless I has a tank or a Mercedes G63 6x6
I've been to zoos in 3 different countries over christmas, i.e. cold but noit actually as bad as Uk today, and barely saw a thing. The critters will be snuggled up trying to keep war. Seriously, a bargain is only a bargain if it delivers.

Yep, cold for me too. Zoos are a place of pure suffering, just so people can walk around blissfully unaware enjoying themselves at the expense of animal cruelty.

Well it is a bit different, less water for a start!

The point of not supporting zoos is that they wouldn't exist in the future. I agree that unfortunately due to man destroying animals and their environment conservation IS necessary in some instances. Locking up all the animals that don't need such care and protection in the wild so people can gawp at them is cruel and unnecessary.

I feel for you,animals can be so selfish when visitors come out in the cold to look at them

Not sure it's as black and white as that. Many animals are perfectly happy/can enjoy being kept in captivity and if that is the case then people wanting to see them is reason enough (no different to people keeping cats/dogs/hamsters etc. at home). Though I'd agree not all animals.

Maybe you're right...the zebras did look pretty traumatised roaming the fields at Longleat last time I went. Probably uneasy with not having the occasional lion stalking/jumping out at them

I guess you're vegan too as they have a right to live and not be food?
Unless you can pay for my round the world trip, to see animals from around the world, along with my salary whilst off work to do it; I'll continue to go to a zoo whenever I like thanks.
Also zoo's do contribute to wildlife programmes and are great environments to breed endangered species to increase wild population.
I'll continue to support that too.

The vast majority of animals in a zoo are not endangered only a small handful are. Many of these animals do not know their natural habitat all they know is a concrete cell where they are laughed at and pointed at by humans.

Animal entertainment centres that’s all they are what’s the point of a breeding programme if the animals are never released back into their natural habitat? The breeding programs in zoos are used as a form of currency which Zoos used to trade for the next crowd-pulling exhibit.

That is nature,dont kid yourself mankind does nature any favours.A lion will kill a zebra for food because its hungry humans will kill for sport

They wouldn't be endangered if we left them alone,Im not a vegan I don't eat anything with a heartbeat and a brain.Im an animal lover,This planet does not belong to the human race,we are just self appointed managers of the planet.And what a fine job we are doing.Wildlife is not in existence for human entertainment.

I'm not here to argue about the ethics of zoos. In my opinion they are completely fine and are doing good for everyone. If you don't want them to exist then go ahead and attempt to stop everything killing them in the wild, such as poachers, climate change and urbanisation then maybe we can get talking.
Seems to be lots of millennial cynical do-gooders posting on this deal. Get a grip ffs.

It's not this country that believes rhino horn cures virtually every known ill on the planet.
We're trying to replenish what poorly educated and socially deprived take.
If it wasn't for the programmes that some zoo's run, many more species would be extinct.
If it wasn't for 'human entertainment' a lot of species under threat wouldn't get the exposure and ability to inspire the next generation of wildlife protection activists.
