Wild animals as entertainment
I feel that sometimes when wild animals are used as entertainment, it is a good thing. It can educate the public and also get city people up close and personal, so that they can appreciate them. They may, in turn, decide they are worth protecting. Such as, protecting habitats and willingness to live in close proximity with them. Unlike those who profess to want to save them, just not in their back yard and not if any are "used" in the entertainment industry.
I will support good zoos, and even support wild animals being dragged around to talk shows. In my opinion (though I may cringe at times) it's educational.
What do any of you think about wild animal being exploited on television?
