Sad eyes and empty lives: The reality of zoos

Captive Animals' Protection Society Date of publication: 01/01/1999


A compelling documentary about the practice of imprisoning animals in zoos. All the major justifications put forward by the modern zoo industry are contested; from the ‘con’ in conservation, the myth that zoos serve to ‘educate’ people about wild animals, and the lie that zoo prisoners are adequately protected by the law.
