Costa Rica, known for its biodiversity, has decided to close its zoos because cages are bad for animals. Costa Rica’s Minister of the Environment, Rene Castro says the decision was based on childhood experience.
“One day, we took the parrot out to the patio, and a flock of wild parrots passed, and the parrot went with them… We fed her with food and affection. … all these things that we as humans thought she liked. And when she had the chance, she left.” Castro said.
Erin Burnett says she always thought that zoos were important, inspiring children to respect and love animals.
But, after reading about Costa Rica’s closing its zoos, she wonders whether the United States should follow suit.
