                Many zoos’ today are faced with the issue of having to either euthanize the young offspring or disrupt the natural breeding cycle of animals that can lead to serious health issues. While on the one hand the argument can be made contraceptives are more humane and acceptable in the eyes of the general population. Euthanasia allows for the natural cycle of mating and parenting to happen. Animal are able to keep one of the many things that are lost when they are put in captivity. These are both viable options that can help to regulate the population and diversity of animal population in zoos’. This debate is something’s that can really be seen from both sides and understood. The real question is what is more natural, and what is better for these animals that have been taken away from their natural environments?
