He killed the three children’s cat because Octavia thought the cat was eating the chickens. The narrator explains that Octavia was mistaken the entire time: To increase his discomfiture the march of events tended to shift the blame of ravaged chicken-coops from the supposed culprit who had already paid full forfeit; the young chicks
Rabbits are routinely blinded by having various products forced into their eyes. This is call the Driaze test. Does not guarantee human safety, but, protects companies from political lawsuits. Factory Farming Over 10 billion animals are slaughtered annually for human consumption. Of the 10 billion at least 6 billion are derived from broiler chickens, which are killed after 9 short weeks of life.
The Problems of the Food Industry Zach Reinhardt Honors Health, Mrs. Kost October 24th, 2012 In modern times, our food industry has a ton of problems. The book Chew on This, by Eric Schlosser and the movie Food Inc., by Robert Kenner proves that our food industry indeed does have a problem. Everything from the harassment of farmers to the cramped spaces in the chicken coop is because of our need to capitalize on food. Both the book and the movie shows just how big of an impact the food industry had on our society. The main difference between the book and the movie is that the movie spent more time talking about how the food industry affects modern-day society.
Summary 2 Intensive animal farming has been the center of many questions from the general public, politicians and scientists. One of the main questions that arise is how animals are managed and handled during their life-cycle in small cages that barely fit them. Humans would not be able to suffer the many atrocities that these poor animals are having during their life cycle in a cage – tail docking for pigs and beak trimming for chickens are very painful and sometimes animals do not receive medicine to help and calm them. But many scientists argue that the definition of “well-being” is difficult to define because it depends on the animal cognition, motivation, perception and emotional states. There are solutions to better “well-being” of animals such as finding an alternative system to intensive animal farming; genetic changes the behavioral or physiological nature of the animal and therapeutic help such as tail docking or beak trimming.
'gestating' rather than 'being pregnant'? Factory farming is an industry that houses many animals and these animals live short lives due to a painful agonizing death. Farmers use different terms of words because it makes their job of killing animals seem more professional and it doesn’t scare people away from meat. Farrowing means the production of a litter pigs. When female pigs become pregnant they are put in farrowing crates so they can't have much room to move.
Why Eat Organic Meat Do you eat organic meat? If you answered no to this question, you are just like other millions of Americans who are oblivious to the fact that non-organic meat is not only bad for you, but is also bad for the environment. Non-organic meat also promotes animal cruelty in some cases. A few reasons why you should eat organic meat include the fact that producers add hormones and other chemicals to generic meat brands; today’s factory farms pollute our environment, and the abuse and ill treatment of animals is often an occurrence for some factory farmers. According to the nutrition labels in today’s generic meat brands such as Great Value, Oscar Meyer, and Hampshire Farms, preservatives and other chemicals such as sodium phosphates, sodium ascorbate, sodium nitrate and hormones are added.
By definition, factory farming involves animals stored in cramped, hot, disease ridden cages, crates or other confined spaces to produce eggs or other foods for humans to consume. The definition of this debate is whether factory farming should be put to an end. I am supporting the fact that it should indeed be put to an end. Why? #1 point, cruelty Well, first of all, About 500 million land animals now in the Thailand are raised for dairy, meat and eggs each year and they all got killed in more than 400 slaughterhouses from the factory farming that are exist around the country.
When the experiment ends the animals are usually euthanized. Animals trust and depend on humans, and hurting them is not right. Due to the harmful effects experimentation has on animals, the government should rethink their decision to continue keeping animal experimentation legal. The first argument is about the harmful chemicals being used; different amounts of chemicals are tested on hundreds of animals everyday. The Environmental Protection Agency pronounced that almost every chemical must be tested before being imported into the United States.
Because of fast food a lot of people are unhealthy, obese, and use mass production to feed everyone. Chicken is the most popular meat that is used in fast food, thus resulting in mass production. Another reason for mass production is the fast growth of population in America. Because of mass production many chickens and other animals are injected with hormones so they can grow bigger, fatter and heavier. Mass production may not be perfect, but it is not bad.
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.
