    We were at Hogle Zoo this weekend, and I am impressed with the changes at the zoo. I was telling the grandkids that when I was young, all the animals were in plain concrete cages with bars. Most of their habitats are more "natural" now, and they get better care (and sometimes diets) than if they were in the wild. Did you read the part where some of these animals would not even have survived otherwise?
    The zoo has spent a lot of money making these improvements.
    And if not for a zoo, where could most kids see polar bears, giraffes, and other animals?
    My only complaint is that a visit there is very expensive. I wish we could go more often.

    We ought to rethink zoos, allow animals to have more space and live in more of a natural habitat instead of a caged environment.
