BSL was made to try to regulate specific breeds of dogs. Usually, BSL targets breeds that are thought of as dangerous breeds. Proponents of BSL claim that BSL is a great way to reduce the threatening pit bull breed (www.animallaw.info, 2007). People who support BSL usually have imagined pit bulls as vicious dogs bred just to fight. BSL is slowly being seen as ineffective laws because leaders of communities are being educated more about pit bulls.
The issue that should matter to everyone is how they’re managed. What that will look like is yet to be seen; whether it will be managed by the hunting community, state agencies, or natural processes will be the next major hurdle in the reintroduction of the wolf. One thing I do know is that the plan needs to protect the tax payer from footing the bill for individual’s interest. By instituting a few measures immediately we can take liability off the general public and let the special interest group’s work out the details with WDFW. These measures should include: Wolves caught in the act of predation of domestics should have consequences strong enough to stop the behavior, owners should also have consequences if they don’t make every effort to use non-lethal methods to deter wolves from preying on their animals, and any act of predation on public lands should be at the liability of the user not the
In the article “This must never happen again” by Cathy Martin, Coldstream in The Age, published on June 9th 2011, she is telling the reader that only humans are only dominant enough to declare themselves owner of all other animals, which leads them with a huge role of responsibility. Cathy Martin would rather see meat prices go up instead of seeing the animals get hurt and harmed like they did shown on Four Corners. I would have to agree with this because it is wrong in so many ways with was done to the cattle. I would also feel sympathy for the 1200 peoples’ lives and jobs depend on the live export trade but maybe the ones that are to lose their jobs could help form a new authority to oversee the strict new standards relating to the future slaughter of Australian animals. The last argument supported in this issue is the use of the restraining boxes; a restraining box is used to restrain animals and to “stun” them quickly and accurately before slaughter- and in which a ‘stun gun’ is to render the animal unconscious.
If these are the morals and values that we uphold as Americans why do we not grant the same rights to mans best friend? In recent history several dog breeds have come under fire from the media and have been subject to legislation outlawing particular breeds, which means that individual dogs that have never done any wrong or harmed a human are being punished. Dog breeds including Pit bulls,
When the Act was passed, the meat packaging industry had to succumb to continuous inspections and investigations by the Agricultural Department which would be paid for by the meat packaging industry. Furthermore, the Act would require stamps on meat products that were sent to market for public consumption. There have been many amendments created to correspond with enhancements in the meat industry. The Federal Meat Inspection Act was established to warrant the health of American consumers. It abolished any diseased or contaminated meat before the consumer gets it.
Joyce A. Hill Introduction to Human Resources – 15 Instructor: Cynthania Clark Individual Work Week 3 Going to the Dogs August 5, 2013 What is your position on this issue? Provide two or three reasons to support your argument? My position on this issue is that I think HR was right for denying Elizabeth Booth request. One reason I think this was a right decision is because all people don’t like animals, usually if you aren’t a true pet lover some people don’t like being around animals, the smell of them or anything. Sometimes dogs bring fear to a person and that is unhealthy for the workplace.
Also statute makes it a crime to allow the death of a child or vulnerable adult under S5 of the Domestic Violence and Crime and Victims Act 2004. Also, under the Dangerous Dogs Act 1993 Greener 1996 was convicted for failing to secure a dangerous dog. Common law sets out that a crime’s actus reus can be committed by failing to perform a contractual duty such as in Dytham 1979, and in Pittwood 1902. The actus reus can also be commited by omission when there is a close relationship, such as in Gibbins & Proctor 1918, and when there is a voluntary assumption of a duty, like in Instan 1893 and controversially Stone & Dobinson. The miller principle can also be grounds to convict on omission where the person has created the problem and not done enough to prevent a serious offence from occurring.
This natural urge could be taken to the extreme that one overindulges in pet ownership. This could mean owning too many pets, not properly caring for your pets or overbreeding your pets. All these overindulgences are the reasons the Humane Society of Southern Arizona exists. They are based on the idea of rehoming homeless pets, providing care for animals in need and reducing pet overpopulation. The opposite of this urge would be to not have any pets at all.
Police dogs are often referred to by the term K9, which sounds like the term canine, a word that generally refers to the dog. The intentional injury or killing of a police dog is a felony, subjecting the perpetrator to harsher penalties than for those involved with animal cruelty. Depending on the case, the perpetrator may be charged the same as if a human officer were injured or killed, and one of the reasons being is because these dogs are very valuable and can cost anywhere between $10,000. A good number of forces outfit dogs with bulletproof vests, providing the dogs their own police badges and IDs. Furthermore, a police dog killed in the line of duty is traditionally given a full police funeral and burial just as they would for a human officer.
Animal cruelty comes in many forms and has many grave consequences. Therefore it should be acknowledged and stopped. Neglect and abandonment are the most common forms of companion animal abuse in the United States. “Other dogs and cats are deliberately abandoned by their guardians to fend for themselves in the wild or on the streets” (Regan, 84).
