Drug manufacturers test medications on animals after they have been injected with viruses and diseases to see if the medications work on the animals. There are many companies who use animal research to test their products; unfortunately these organizations do not look for alternatives besides animal testing. If these atrocious acts were committed outside laboratories, they would be felonies. But animals suffer and die every day in laboratories with little or no protection from cruelty. It is immoral to
But not a lot of people pay attention to what happens behind the scenes. There has to be a cost to every benefit, whether it may be good or bad. In this case, it cost many tortured animals for farmers and food companies to become powerful and billion dollar industries. There seems to be no balance for these industries because they have sacrificed their ethics for profit. In one part of the video, I was glad to see that there are farmers out there who are willing to treat their cattle and herds ethically even if they were farming them.
If you saw a Pit Bull being walked by its owner at your local park, how would you react? Would you cringe at the thought of the monstrous thing and stay out of its way, or would you be compelled to ask if you may pet this wonderful, misunderstood creature? The general public would be afraid of the dog. However, the properly educated portion of the human race knows better than to conform to popular belief and succumb to the mass hysteria regarding this breed without first doing research of their own. Most people shudder at the thought or sight of a Pit Bull and consider them vicious atrocities, but I will show that Pit Bulls are innocent and really are just misunderstood.
I understand medication being tested on animals but the cosmetic industry should not test on animals because its animal cruelty, the testing is not accurate, and there are other ways to test products. First reason they should not test on animals is because it’s animal cruelty. In America animal abuse is illegal. Testing on animals is abuse! Everyday millions of animals are locked in small cages giving them only enough room to turn around, and they have makeup put on them, and thousands die from it everyday.
I chose this quote because it tells us that killing animals happens faster than someone gathering knowledge. Next, this book relates to society because many animals in the world are becoming endangered today. An example of this is the Bonobos from the book. Also, there are many problems in the world today just like the war in Congo. Around the world there are Army’s like the one in this book, that do not care what they are shooting at or killing, even if it is a poor animal that has done nothing wrong.
20 September 2012 Gahre, 1 When is Enough, Enough? “Clearly, our love affair with our pets has gotten out of control,” Buckhard Bilger argues in ‘The Last Meow”. Animal owners are taking spending to an entirely different level, paying upwards of $2,000 for root canals, chemotherapy and even radiation. Bilger believes that Americans over spending on their pets is outrageous. He is right; in fact the amount Americans spend on their furry friends is three times as much as the federal government spends on welfare grants.
Putting someone in jail for a few months and thats it does nothing. So that is where these stricter felony laws come into play! C. Think about it, to most of us our animals are part of the family. If a family member was abused or neglected then you would get a pretty hefty sentence imposed. Why not for animals?
There are a group of people who believe humans view animals as property and mistreat them due to their lack of intelligence. But there is also a group who use animals as a way of life and appreciate their contributions to the world’s ecosystem. This group looks at the human behaviors towards animals, and animal’s level of emotion, and the contradiction towards the treatment of animals. When debating the topic about animals first we will talk about human behaviors and thoughts towards animals. In the essay “Why I Hunt” by Rick Bass, the author talks about how the love of hunting and the landscape nourish his soul.
Some people argue that keeping animals in zoos is cruel as animals are kept away from their natural habitat and there would be no chance for animals to socialize with each other. Before we come to a conclusion perhaps we can examine what cruelty means. In Wikipedia, ‘cruelty to animals is the human infliction of suffering or harm upon non-human animals, for purposes other than self-defense or survival.’ Keeping animals in the zoo may not be ideal, but that does not mean that zookeepers in zoos are treating animal cruelly. For example, many zoos try to provide animals with an environment that is closest to their natural habitat. Zookeepers give the animals their food, while vets will provide the animals preventive medicine, quarantine and many more.
Since animals cannot speak and tell us that they do not want to perform every night in the circus, we need to speak for them and say this is not okay to do. The second reason I agree with Michaela is no animal should be deprived of everyday necessities such as, water, food, and rest. In my opinion, this type of training is inhumane and cruel. This type of training would never be okay in the human world, so why is it okay to do with animals? If you were not performing your job to your supervisor’s satisfaction, you would not have your food, drink, or house taken away from you.
