I'll discuss both shots here.

Original photo. I like it. Yes, for a zoo visitor a more organic home would be preferable. But we are talking about it as a photo. The dark rectangle frames and contrasts with the animal. The contrast brings out the fur. I like the head drooping over the bottom edge and breaking the line of the rectangle. I like the overall composition with the symmetry of the sides and the complete rejection of the usual rule of thirds composition. The enclosure and straight lines are making a statement of their own about zoos.

Photo 2 is quite different. The animal in a setting where we can forget it is in a zoo. I wouldn't say 2 is better, it has a different message.
