Point one - I'll just quote what you actually said: "4. Having an off exhibit space of 1/3 of an acre for a single clouded leopard is a huge waste of space. That is an average size for an on-show lion exhibit. For off show housing of a species like that, 1,000-1,500 sq. ft. is more than enough." - you are saying that off-exhibit spaces should not be large, they should only be adequate. Point two: what a load of nonsense. Maybe this comes back to that old American-vs-UK immersion-vs-utilitarian debate but saying that using fences is "not something done in modern exhibitry" and "barriers should be kept to a visual minimum" is utter nonsense. That is your personal opinion on what a zoo should or shouldn't do. It is not even close to a situation of, say, living space or appropriateness of diet. It's like saying "movies should not have Adam Sandler in them" or "music should not be performed by Iggy Azalea" - that is my personal opinion, shared by many other people, but in no way is a movie studio "wrong" for employing Adam Sandler or a music studio "wrong" for letting Iggy Azalea anywhere near a microphone. Different strokes for different folks.
