Cages & Enclosures

Hello! ^.^ This is SilverDawn, to post on cages and enclosures. 

At zoos, large, wild animals are often kept in enclosures like this one.

That's a pretty bad enclosure.There aren't many grasses or trees where the elephant is locked up. However it is better than some.

This one is kept in a concrete-floored cage! Imagine if you were stuck in there, and you're not a three ton elephant!

And it isn't only large, zoo animals. 

Some dogs spend much of their life in a cage like this one!

But it is much worse for the birds. Dogs only stay in cages like that one until they get adopted. But look at the birds' situation. 
 

They spend all their entire life in there! :'(

Circuses usually have the worst cages.

 Animals should live in spacious cages - or preferably not at all!
