Monkey Town and former Tygerberg Zoo are cases in point. Animals are stressed, live in appalling conditions, and are malnourished. I was horrified by the despair I saw in a chimpanzee rocking backwards and forwards in the middle of an arid enclosure. These are intelligent beings. How dare we treat them like this.
Yes
No animals to be used for entertainment.
No testing on animals.
All animal training centres (including the police and military) open for inspection.

Zoos and circuses are antiquated, outdated prisons for innocent animals and should outright be closed and banned.
In this day and age the internet can provide far more educational information. Physically viewing miserable animals in poor and unnatural conditions and in ailing health is not condusive to a positive learning experience and the whole business is cruel and unkind to these sentient beings.
Yes
I have done so on the animal protection act page

Animals in zoos are prisoners and are not kept in their natural environment. They are taken away from their families and homes and forced to live in cages and small spaces. All zoos must be closed. if you want o see animals watch national Geographic on TV or go to a game reserve. Close all zoos.
Yes
Close the zoos, they don't belong in today's world. How terrible for the animal to have a bunch of humans staring at them and mocking them. Very cruel.

Those who mistreat any animal should face the same consequences and punishments as those who commit crimes against humans. Humans have no more right to be on this earth than animals do. All creatures should be treated equally and with dignity.

Wild animals should not be kept in captivity, this act in itself is cruel. If it is an unavoidable evil than serious measures need to be taken to ensure the proper care and handling of animals in captivity.
Yes
An Amendment Bill to strenghten the Animal Protection Act is long overdue.

Animals are not provided with their ethological and social needs. They are kept for human entertainment.
Yes
The animal protection act is outdated and must be amended and strengthened. Government have been saying they are doing this for years, but no action. Come on South Africa!

Our responsibility once we domesticate, imprison or use animals for entertainment is to care for them with respect and love.

No.
They don't really care about any of these animals as they are only seen as money makers. No animal would be happy and willingly choose to spend their live in captivity regardless of how they got there in the first place.
Yes
Animals are here with us,not for us. Stop exploiting them.

Small enclosures compared to the wild. They are lonely, bored, depressed looking. It is unnatural and animals are not meant for human entertainment.
Yes
Stricter laws need to be put in place to protect our animals.
