In the story of the Evil of Animal “Rights”, the writer tells us that animals are being test every day which causes death to most of them. He says that it is not a right to kill animals. Then, he gives so many evidences to prove using testing animals are extinct. I think, using animals for testing give us new vaccine which makes our lives better. Without animals for testing, where would our lives be going?
According to the law animals have to be unconscious before they are slaughtered. Some animals are stunned just before by electrocution or a metal bolt drilled into the head. These methods are used because it’s a quick and a fairly painless death. More than one hundred and sixty-eight million chickens and around nine billion broiler chickens are killed for food in the United States yearly. The Humane Slaughter Act specifically mentions only cattle, calves, horses, mules, sheep and
It is impossible to know the exact number as in the United States of America where the majority of the experiments are happening it is not required by law to report how many birds, reptiles, cats or dogs are used. Animals that are unfortunate enough that they end up having a short life as 50% of the animals will die within 3 weeks of an experiment. Many labs end up shocking, burning, torturing or starving animals without pain relief, an example of this is baby mice enduring severed ligaments for up to 6 weeks without pain relief. One of the things with animal testing is that it is not tested on humans so the reaction to human could be different to an animal. In my eyes this method is unreliable and inefficient.
2009 - To minimize the chance that Mad Cow Disease could enter the food chain, the U.S. permanently bans the slaughter of sick cows. 2011- Scientists are still discovering and documenting the ways that mad cow disease can be spread. Swiss scientists now know that inhaling prions, which float in the air at farms, factories and slaughterhouses can induce the disease. This makes it virtually impossible for the disease to be stopped because there are no laws against prions floating around in these places. In order to avoid getting Mad Cow Disease, you should avoid eating parts of the cow that may carry the infection.
Pet Overpopulation Sonia Sykes COM172 March 18, 2011 David Searle Pet Overpopulation In the United States alone there are more than four million dogs and cats euthanized each year, according to a journal published by Siress, A. (2010). This is a result of very many unwanted animals, over breeding, and many different economic factors. Truth is, owning a pet is a luxury and takes a large amount of time that some people do not have to invest into their pets, so these animals are abandoned, mistreated, and surrendered if they are lucky to animal shelters. Far too many are dumped along desolate roads where the owner cannot be seen throwing their dog or cat away like trash to fend for themselves.
Each year, throughout thousands of animals are dying or being ridiculously abused. In 2007, there were 1,880 animal abuse cases in America. 1,212 of those cases were about dogs, 337 were about cats, and 470 were other animals. Harmless, innocent animals are being hurt, and being very harmed but crucial people with no intention of what they are really doing. They are beating poor animals senseless.
It was discovered by accident when a pet food provider taste tested the food on cats and several died (Hubbard pg. 40). This is a clear example of why we need to thoroughly inspect the food for not just ourselves but our animals as well. With all the different terrorist attack attempts that have happened in the U.S, because of the lack of inspection of our food we become an easy
One lab costs around $36 million dollars, this money can be used for many purposes other than torturing animals for selfish reasons. One animal dies in a laboratory every second, in Japan only two seconds and in the UK every twelve seconds, if we add Canada to the list how many poor animals will be killed then? Not only does Vivi-section violate animal rights but it can also be misleading since animals don’t have the exact same DNA makeup. So why are we killing 100-300 million animals each year, and not just killing them torturing them while they are alive and getting inaccurate results? Vivi section is not right there are many alternatives to find Vivi-section, to find out about their internal make-up scientists could always experiment after natural death instead of killing the animal in such a cruel
Many people are unaware as to what goes on in animal testing. Numerous products that are widely used were tested on animals, such as Crest toothpaste, Secret deodorant, Tide detergent, and many others. There is going to be a different reaction with some animals from the drug they are tested with, than the reaction to the humans. The Journal of the American Medical Association reported that 100,000 people are killed every year by prescription drugs and more than 2 million are hospitalized with serious complications from prescription drugs. Clearly, if we are going to make medical progress, a new approach is needed.
When taken out of cages their bones are so fragile they tend to break. Male chicks are no value to the industry so they are killed at birth. Hens cages are stacked in rows on top of each other so thousands of birds can be housed together with approximately five to eleven birds in each cage. Their is not much human contact, Birds fall out of cages, get stuck between them and end up dying from having no access to food or water. With waste accumulating, ammonia can cause burns to the animals skin, eyes and respiratory tracts.
