Dear Editor, I would like to respond to Hans Wergin’s letter about abandoned dogs. I strongly disagree with Hans Wergin and feel that his idea of making people register as dog owners is of little value. The government should take other actions for tackling this severe problem. According to SPCA, the stray dog population in Hong Kong is escalating continuously. Dogs will be forced to take euthanasia if they were not adopted for a period of time.
I wanted to blame them for my sick dog and for all the other sickness in the world.” Although he doesn’t want to blames his parent and their previous generation to have born in a poor situation, he doesn’t have any order choice. On page 13, Junior writes “Poverty doesn’t give you strength or teach you lessons about perseverance. No, poverty teaches you how to be poor”. He means that the poverty just
Her opinion piece, titled With training and love, they are devoted pets, is directed at those who fear pit bull terriers. She argues that the restrictions on pit bull terriers are both unnecessary and unfair. Pelen uses emotive language and imagery to tug at the reader’s heart strings and convince them of the dangers posed by pit bull terriers. She uses phrases such as ‘tragic death’, ‘senseless and needless’ and ‘viciously attacked’ to help the reader to visualise the attack. She uses an anecdote detailing a dog attack on her own family to establish her credibility and knowledge of the issue.
It is inhumane to keep animals in small enclosures like that where they wouldn’t even get room to stretch their legs or get the chance to behave like they would naturally in the wild. The more intelligent animals (dogs, cats, pigs, primates etc) suffer from severe cases of loneliness because they lack the rights to run around and be free. How would you feel if you could not run around in a free environment? My second argument is using animals for testing cosmetics. It is estimated that over 1 million animals are killed due to companies that test their products on animals and those companies tell us that they use animals to test the safety of their products.
By far, the most common breeds focused upon are the pit bull type breeds. BSL relies on the premise that all dogs of a certain breed are vicious by their very nature. BSL might require an additional registration fee for certain breeds of dogs, requires the dogs to be muzzled in public, or completely forbids the keeping of those dogs. Breed-specific legislation applies only to dogs of a certain appearance, not to any and all dogs. It does not take into account how the owner has raised, trained, or managed the dog.
Disagree argument with Chu Hsien-jer After reading “Film Addresses Taiwan’s Lack of Respect for Animals,” I find that I disagree with what Chu has said. First of all, Chu claims that “[w]e have animal protection laws, but Taiwan's law enforcement is far from satisfactory.” Chu brings out the issue only, but he doesn’t tell us how to solve this problem. On the other hand, Chu talks about the impairing animal in the interview throughout his life experience, whereas his father’s friend abandoned several pet dogs and some of which suffered from a skin disease to show us we overlook the right of animals, but be curious how one man’s experience can represent public. Furthermore, Chu tries to use terms such as “always” and “anything” in the following sentence, “Consider conversations [held between people who live in Taiwan] are always about real estate prices and the stock market. Because people don't care about anything but economic development, they overlook animal rights[,]” to emphasize his own theory by this form of hyperbole.
[animal-testing.procon.org] Researchers in Aston University have made it known that it is not worth taking the lives of these animals for testing, because the things we’re trying to make happen with human bodies is very different from the animal body. The anatomic, metabolic, and cellular differences between animals and people make animals poor models for human beings. There is a big percentage from the 1950’s up till now that animal testing is flawed by not being correct when it is given to the people it is for. So why not just stop the animal experiments that are not just killing, but also torturing the animals.
The owner also has a possibility of receiving a dog that has been pu through dog fighting. While the new owner doesn’t have to teach the older dog much if the previous owner taught the dog well, such as housebreaking and training stages, the owner still has a chance that the dog could have been beat and this will most likely mean the dog is aggressive that is really scared. While all dogs should have a home and be treated right there are many people out there that take their anger out on their dogs and fight their dogs for money. Other good reasons to buy an older dog is the fact the owner won’t have to spend as much money on shots and being sprayed or neutered. While buying a puppy, the owner will have to spend a great deal of money for worm shots neutering and other vet visits the puppy will need.
Chimpanzees and tigers or exotic animals are not domestic animals and therefore people should not be allowed to keep them. Owning these animals as pets can be extremely dangerous. People who keep them may think that they are doing well to the animals, but in real sense the animals belongs to the game parks. Protecting these animals from poaching, killing and ignorance can only be curbed by having proper systems and structures that ensures that these animals are well taken care of and protected in the parks. Risks involved The risk factors that comes along with keeping such animals are so high compared to the little advantages that people may claim to be getting from them.
According to Joyce Tischler of the Animal Legal Defense Fund, she says “there is nothing good for them in entertainment”. This is absolutely correct; why do the animals that are wild have to be playing roles in movies and not being free? This is only one fact which proves that animals shouldn’t be having roles in films/movies. Another reason that animals shouldn’t be working in films is that, according to “Beasts of Burden”, many animal-rights advocates believe that pushing a wild animal to behave in a certain way at a certain time is unnatural, stressful, and potentially dangerous for the animal. This means an animal can be stressed out and because of this have health problems, or even die!
