Tigers in cage

It was Mid-November 2013. I and my fellow Biology mates of Asia-Pacific International University, Thailand had an excursion to Sriracha Tiger Zoo, which is located in Sri Racha, a city on the outskirts of Pattaya, a city in the Chonburi Province of Thailand, which is about 60 miles from Bangkok. 

Well, i am particularly fascinated with natural settings of the zoo, however, i feel we greedy humans polluted the earth and destroyed or stole most of the habitat. I personally feel that animals should be in a protected park such as a national park or a wildlife park, for many it is a death sentence here. I strongly feel that, zoos should become a place to rehabilitate animals that can no longer survive in the wild. 

Sorry for the tigers, those wild canines confined at a short and narrowed space. It can only walk to the right, return, and to the left, repeating this pattern indefinitely like a machine. Those animals deprived of its natural habitat, not have enough room, and deprived of its natural social structure and companionship. Beside, treating animals in an appropriate way than keeping them healthy. It's possible for zoos to keep animals in perfect physical shape, but in conditions that cause the animals to display serious behavioral problems. This mostly results the loss of the natural ability, such as hunting for food themselves.
