Edgar Espana Kara Lybarger-Monson English MO1B February 29, 2012 Questioning Ones Power In T.C. Boyle’s novel When the Killings Done, Dave LaJoy the so-called animal lover and animal rights activist, who by the way hates humans, faces-off with Alma Boyd Takesue, the real animal lover that is trying to restore “Eden” to the way it was before being infested by rats and feral pigs. Both Alma and Dave are interested in animal rights but have different ways in doing so, Alma even though she’d rather not kill anything has to eliminate animals from Eden because she is dedicated to preserving the species unique to Eden’s environment and Dave, on the other hand, is on a determined mission to “save animals” even though the way he goes
As early as page four, the characterization of Lennie’s uncontrollable strength was denoted by Steinbeck’s description of the way he dragged his feet being similar to “the way a bear drags his paws” (4). And just like Candy’s dog, Lennie had also died, but mark that in both cases, they die by means of gun from their best friends. George’s decision to kill Lennie goes back to the extended metaphor between Lennie and Candy’s dog throughout the book. After the death of Candy’s dog, an interpersonal discussion between George and Candy leads to one important moment. Candy tells George that he “ought to of shot that dog [himself]“(60) and that he “shouldn’t ought to of let no stranger shoot [his] dog”(60).
Lee also presents the build-up of danger through the actions of Calpurnia as she ‘block(s)’ Jem and Scout from harm. The use of this heavy and protective action emphasizes the fear of this dog suggesting that even looking at this dog was enough to cause harm. Lee presents a sense of danger through the monosyllabic, interrupted conversation between Atticus and Mr Tate such as ‘this is a one-shot job’, suggesting that the conversation between them is quick, building up the tension. The constant interruptions between the two men also emphasize that they don’t have enough time to even let each other finish due to the danger that is fast approaching them. Lee presents a sense of danger through the use of a simile: ‘he moved like an underwater swimmer’.
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,

This is the popular, growing trend of humanizing pets. In "The Dog Delusion," April Pedersen voices her displeasure with society's increasing obsession with how people view their dogs as not pets, but as important parts of the family, workforce, and culture. However, Pedersen fails to emphasize how the personal relationships that people have with their dogs can be very beneficial, even if some go overboard with extra luxuries for Fido. Pedersen finds the latest trend of viewing an animal as a child, alarmingly ridiculous. However, she fails to recognize the ongoing and misunderstood connection involving human beings and their relationships with their pets.
The Growling, howling, and snarling sounds that haunted my dreams as a child are still the sounds I think of when the conversation turns to wolves. The growling, howling, and snarling I’m referring to isn’t coming from wolves but the people fighting for and against the repopulation of the species. So what’s the truth about wolf reintroduction? Why is there such a heated debate? One side of the argument states they were hunted to the brink of extinction for a reason, the other side praising this majestic animal for its ability to live and thrive in the face of such adversity.
Running head: ANALYZING AN ADVERTISEMENT Module 2 Lab 2 James Crouch ITT Technical Institute EN1320 Module 2 Lab 2 Instructor: Lincoln Schreiber 7/5/15 The commercial I chose for this assignment is the SPCA Rescue the Animals commercial. The commercial shows the horrors that pets are subjected to by careless owners or just their day to day struggles to survive. The commercial shows actual footage of animals in cages that have not been fed or severely beaten and neglected. These images are heart breaking and disturbing. The commercial is designed to attract its target audience which is animal lovers.
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). This statement
