Why we love zoos

"Why we love zoos" appeared as an opinion piece in last Sunday's NY Times. Read it here.

Personally, I nearly always feel conflicted when I visit the zoo. I often do enjoy going to a good zoo, like ours here in Milwaukee County, but I never escape without feeling some guilt at the conditions under which zoos keep "wild" animals. Worse, I've been to a number of really bad zoos at one time or another.
