What is wrong with Wild animals on Talk shows !

Okay, i see more and more talk shows where they invite this "expert" who comes there and brings along all kinds of wild animals and then proceeds to bring them out there and demonstrate things.
What is wrong with this scenario?
First off, WILD ANIMALS, are supposed to be wild.
This attempt tobring them out to talk shows is posed as an attempt to educate about these animals.
But what this act is actually eventually ending up doing is indirectly indicating that it is alright to chain and domesticate and cage wild animals.
Wild animals are supposed to be wild
.They are not suppossed to be caged that way or belted that way or be brought to shooting studios full of audience.
Even if one such animal is being used as their ''alleged" attempt at educating people about more such similar animals out there in the wild, It is still wrong, coz one animal eventually is getting domesticated and trained to understand that it will be fed for every act of listening to the human that will feed it .
This is much akin to teaching animals tricks.These tricks essentially are only for the amusement of the human viewers.Teaching animals tricks is essentially a self affirmation attempt of humans where they as humans are amused and feel better and feel a sense of achievement that they taught an animal a trick.The animal doesn't get amused by itself except for the fact that it gets a treat of food for each action that it performs, an action that it naturally is not inclined to perform. It doesn't really care about the trick at all.It just thinks of it as a food gaining attempt.It is like training lab rats to do tricks to be fed.This is just wrong.
So, yeah, coming back to bringing wild animals to television studios, there are far better and correct ways of educating the public.For eg videos of animals in their natural environment where we as intruders hide and video tape them while they go around behaving normally in their normal environment, rather than capture that animal, cage it and train it to behave in lure of a food treat and bring them to telvised studios to "EDUCATE" people.
Come on!Hyprocritical excuses to do wrong things is not acceptable.
