Problem

Maltreatment of zoo animals

Other Names:
Zoo mismanagement
Inadequate zoo facilities
Nature:

Animals are frequently placed in zoos in unnatural habitats. Confined areas, little natural light, inadequate temperature control, improper diet and stress-inducing proximity of spectators, are some of the conditions experienced. Inadequate companionship of their kind and abuse by keepers are additional factors contributing to animal illness and mortality in zoological parks or research centres open to the public.
