Sexton talked about the changes that have been made to save the lives of animals that are unwanted and therefore killed because of the space that was taken up. Sexton begins by giving a basic definition of what is animal overpopulation. “Pet overpopulation occurs when there are more domestic cats and dogs than there are people who want them as pets.” (Sexton, J. (2011)). Sexton states facts about how much kittens are birthed a year in the U.S. Companion pets such as dogs and cats have to be euthanized because they are unwanted.
Slaughterhouse and Factory Farm Cruelty and Neglect Animal cruelty may be defined as “deliberate abuse or simply failure to take care of an animal.” “It is where people do not provide adequate care for animals in their charge.” (animal neglect law and legal definition). Common slaughterhouse and factory farm methods include both animal cruelty and neglect. sixteen billion animals are killed every year to meet the demand for animal products when at the same time, domesticated pets treated with the same manner as those in slaughterhouses and factory farms result in animal cruelty charges to the owners (cruelty to animals). Protective animal laws of livestock animals are different from those of domesticated pets. A factory farm is a large-scale industrial operation, housing hundreds or thousands of livestock animals, such as chickens, cows, and pigs, in extremely crowded conditions and treats them as inanimate economic commodities (what is a factory farm).
Horse Slaughter Although people for horse slaughter may argue it’s humane and not wrong to put a horse through slaughter, most people against slaughter will disagree. It’s been found the entire process, from the auctions to death, are very inhumane. Undercover films have been made showing the actual process of horse slaughter. The Doris Day Animal League site states, “Callous treatment at the slaughterhouse often results in prolonged suffering. Panicked horses are often prodded and beaten off the truck and into the kill-chute.
Darryl Phillips Mr. Leggett English 4 28 April 17 Behind the Scenes In Animal Testing Animal experimentation is a serious issue that many people oppose, whereas others try to justify the inhumanity behind it. Because of the controversy surrounding this topic, it has caused much frustration in companies and labs that test their products on animals. There are currently many organizations such as PETA (People for the Ethical Treatments of Animals) and IAAPEA (International Association Against Painful Experiments On Animals) that oppose animal testing and try to resolve this issue by providing people with knowledgeable information about what is really happening to these animals. Over one-hundred million animals die in labs worldwide every
At least 5 billion US tax dollars are poured into animal experiments every year. Rabbits are routinely blinded by having various products forced into their eyes. Although the test does not guarantee human safety, it protects companies from potential lawsuits by their consumers. Laying hens are usually kept five or six to a fourteen inch square cage, and as many as 20% die of stress or disease from these living conditions. Of the ten million cows kept for milk in the US, at least five million live on factory farms in conditions that cause tremendous suffering to the animals.
They are used to test cosmetics, household cleaners, and other consumer products. Hundreds of thousands of animals are poisoned, blinded, and killed every year by cruel corporations. Mice and rats are forced to inhale toxic fumes, dogs are force-fed pesticides, and rabbits have corrosive chemicals rubbed onto their skin and eyes. Everyday in countries around the world, animals are fighting for their lives. Animals don’t deserve to be treated this way.
Uses of Animal Testing research paper Animal Product testing is cruel and inhumane. According to the International Humane Society, animals that are used in experimenting are forced to over-feeding, inhalations, food and water deprivations, prolonged periods of physical restraint, and are burned. Animal testing is wrong and I believe that animals should not be exposed to this type of torture. In Reston, Virginia, there is a company that buys and uses large amounts of monkeys for animal testing purposes. One shipment that they received from the Philippines on October 4, 1989 started to get very sick and die extremely quickly.
Using dogs to fight can serve as entertainment, money making, ranking in gangs, and gambling. People have to treat these beautiful animals horribly to make them mean so that they become the most aggressive dog. There should be no remorse for people who are intrigued by dog fighting. Better and more entertaining activities are in this world other than watching an animal go through these cruel and horrible punishments. The American Society Prevention of Cruelty to Animals dates’ dog fighting back to the 1750’s (ASPCA).
Dr Patronek, a professor at Tufts University, conducted a study in 1999 stating that hoarders see their animals as children and that no one else can care for them (Characteristics of Animals Hoarding). Hoarders also think if they seek help then their animals will be euthanized. Randall Lockwood the Humane Society of The United State’s vice president for research and educational outreach says that, “hoarding is very often a symptom of a greater illness, such as obsessive- compulsive disorder [anxiety disorder]. For most hoarders, it is likely that their actions are
Behind it was a mirror” (Martel 39). People are known to be unkind to animals in zoos where even on accident, many animals die every year from consumption of unsuitable objects. However, there is also a more meaningful side to this topic. Humans act just as relentless as animals when they are pushed to the edge of survival. This is seen in the final chapter of the book on Pi’s second account of what occurred on the life boat.
