Melbourne exertion

Can I smell doughnuts yep I sure can I don’t know about everyone else but I’m going strait to 7 11 to get some Krispy Kremes but any way doughnuts are not why we were in Melbourne.we noticed different smells and sounds in the vic market there were all sorts of cultures Such as Asian polish German Italian Greek French Chinese and Aussie!!i found a fruit that i had never seen before called papaya and all sorts of meat bread and other stuff that you wouldn’t find in you local supermarket

Are zoo’s essential

Why do these animals have to suffer in a 30 m cage when they could have thousands of miles to run. Imagine if you were stuck in a cage for all those years not being able to run

Animals that live in the zoo are loosing there fight. So if they were let out of the zoo they wouldn’t survive because they were in the zoo for so long they would forget there natural instincts.

In a zoo you don’t get to see there natural behaviours because they forget how to be a animal cause there in the zoo were the can’t run, can’t hunt, food is provided

animals usually get taking away from there family to go into zoos.its like some kids from other countries get stolen and never see the family’s again however some are taking away from there families so they can increase the population.

So now hopefully you get my point that zoos are not essential
