Pi defends the zoo and attacks the common understanding of animals in the wild as free, and animals in a zoo as "unfree", for freedom in the wild is a myth: animals are restricted by their survival needs and their instincts. In the zoo, they live a life of relative luxury not having to worry about survival of the fittest.
