Laidlaw effectively captures the plight faced by captive wild animals, even in major, apparently high-quality zoos. In four riveting chapters he explores first the general issues of life in captivity, then addresses specific, often severe, problems faced by polar bears, elephants, dolphins and Great Apes. A caged lion pacing back and forth on a worn path and dolphins swimming in unending circles are captive animals exhibiting stereotypies, or repetitive abnormal behaviors. These disturbing behaviors are a common sight in many zoos. Laidlaw effectively captures the plight faced by captive wild animals, even in major, apparently high-quality zoos.

I'm an author and an animal advocate. I hope my books encourage both kids and adults to get involved protecting animals.
No wild animals shouldn't be kept in captivity. It is inhumane to treat animals in a way not befitting of them, to place a wild animal in an enclosed environment against their will is one of those types of treatment. to explore as they see fit to do within reason. Short of that, they should be given time to integrate into a new environment slowly rather than confined to it immediately, so they could adjust. Either way, I don't think a wild animal should be kept in captivity against its' will.

Good Zoos! Bad Zoos!!
A large family of elephants ambles all day along a well-remembered route across the hot African savanna. Halfway around the world in a zoo in Alaska, a single female elephant paces back and forth in her cramped, concrete pen. During the sub-arctic winter, she lives alone in a dark barn.
As it plods great distances across the ice in the Canadian Arctic, a polar bear continually sniffs the wind, closing in on a ringed seal. In a zoo in Jakarta, another polar bear lies motionless on the concrete floor of its enclosure, panting in the tropical heat. Its fur has turned green from the algae growing inside its hollow guard hairs.
These scenes are at the heart of "Wild Animals in Captivity" - a book that focuses on wild animals living in captivity around the world. "Captive animals become stressed when they try to act naturally, but can't," the author writes. "In many zoos, you'll see them pacing, weaving, or sitting motionless. This is the animal's way of telling us that it's bored and unhappy. Wild animals need a rich and varied environment-things to do, space to roam, social groups, families to care for."
