3. You assume that the tiger is sad and depressed

 

because you would be sad and depressed.

Why do we assume that animals and humans would feel the same way about "the wild"? For all we know, living in zoo might be an enormous relief for an animal. Never having to worry about food, water, and shelter might be a blessing. We don't know what the tiger feels, or if it feels anything in this regard at all.
