I think that the current definition is wrong. Most modern zoos take more scientific (and also more animal-friendly) approach. Amusing the public is not the main purpoce of the zoos anymore. Biological study, preservation and breeding of the animals are becoming more and more important nowdays. Vitaly Volkov 08:27, 6 May 2008 (CDT)
