Hello, Science Fiction fans...I am contacting this group because I am looking for a very short sci-fi story, I read about 20+ years ago. It's a great story...I never forgot it, but I did forget the title and author and I have been trying to locate this story for many years.

I think it was published in one of "The Best Science Fiction Anthologies" somewhere around 1970-maybe earlier?

The general story plot is about a guy who is traveling around in a ship like a zoo, that captures alien creatures from harsh environments to "save" them. At the very end of the story, he ends up returning a particular creature to it's home planet, which is a very hostile environment, kind of like a jungle where the chances of survival are low, because the creature is not doing well in captivity.

Anyway has any one out there hear or read this story? Please contact me if you know this particular story. Thank you.

I will move this to the Science Fiction section... you may have better luck there.
