They say I'm the fastest thing on earth, but when will they let me stretch my legs?

Artist's Description

Taken at Ebeltoft safari in Denmark with a Nikon D700 and a 70-200mm lens with a 17mm tc(340mm)
Evolution in the wild has always meant that survival of the strongest individuals, will continue to strenghten animals ability to exist in nature.Bearing this in mind, it makes you wonder if the zoos of the world are in the process of purpose breeding specimens which suit human needs and don’t necessarily possess any of the survivor instincts needed in nature?
The Cheetah cub is a good illustration of my point.Why does it have to be the fastest thing on earth if it is only allowed a confined area to run in and all of it’s food is served?Speed,survival, hunting ability and instinct will through time disappear in zoos in exactly the same way as man’s degeneration of dogs and other household and agricultural animals already have done
