    The film brings you the whole picture of how animals experience
    living in a stressful and unnatural environment, and how it effects
    their mental and natural life.Ensuring a good welfare for animals
    housed in zoos, is not an easy job. It might not even be something
    we will ever really get a perfect grip on. Animal species have
    evolved over many years and their physical, physiological, social
    and behavioral traits have been developed in order for them to
    survive as best as they can in their natural environment.In
    captivity, animals may face a number of challenges which evolution
    has not prepared them for and disables the animal to fulfill their
    behavioral needs. The absence of these, climate, diet, the size and
    characteristics of their enclosure or the fact that they have to
    rely on humans for their every need can cause an animal to feel
    stressed in which it starts to perform a stereotypic behavior.
    Repetitive, abnormal behavior is often regarded as an indicator of
    poor welfare and is studied as a coping mechanism, and measures of
    stress which can potentially go on to cause brain dysfunction. I
    believe, that the display of abnormal behavior patterns are not
    recognized enough by the public eye. That is why I have decided to
    make this documentary to educate you about what lies behind these
    stereotypic behaviors which we can easily identify, but might not
    have given a further thought about, or brought a negative judgement
    upon when visiting the zoo.
