Well, that's a long response, thanks for taking the time, I'll try and address your points one part at a time.

I did not say the zoo world was wise at any time, what I said was that there have been many pioneers in animal behavior and husbandry that have not only laid a foundation for modern husbandry technique but put it into practice. What has happened time and time again is that these people are seen as "radical outsiders" by the establishment and their ideas and work are either suppressed OR if the success is recognized, the establishment then copies it... poorly (copy of a copy). Leaving us with this rich history of real movers and shakers in the husbandry and behavior realm who not only wrote about their discoveries and techniques but in some cases put them to work with amazing results.

Context is important, for you as well.

I am not an Academic, I am a high school dropout who works with his hands.

You are stating the obvious with your husbandry/pet/Zoo rave out here, I agree.
End response part one.
