Another threat to the snow leopard is poaching. The leopards are hunted illegally for their pelts so that they can be made into luxurious fur coats and other items of clothing. The poachers aren’t always in it for the kill though; there are many collectors in Central Asia who almost die for a live snow leopard to
I am very much against foxhunting because I think it is a cruel and unnecessary. Foxhunters kill foxes only for ‘sport’ and amusement, and because of the exhaustion, terror and trauma inflicted on the victim, the death of the fox itself, is violent and painful. Foxhunters argue that foxes are pests and their numbers need to be controlled. They say that even controlled fox populations still cause problems. A survey financed by the Countryside Alliance showed that in spite of control, 30% of farmers had experienced significant losses from foxes in the preceding twelve months.
Since we were not able to cross the road we little bucks could only search for food in the low lying areas where there was almost nothing left growing. The dogs had taken most of what was left. The dogs didn’t like us very much always picking on us younger deer but they sure howled and ran when dad was around throwing his horns around. I hope someday my horns get to be that size. My older brother is always telling me how my horns will not grow unless I do something dangerous and heroic to make them grow.
Deer with CWD need to get killed so that the rest of the deer population can be healthy. Next, CWD has had many direct effects. It caused many people not to want to hunt or spend as much money due to the fact that a person shouldn’t consume any meat from a deer with CWD. This hurts many sporting goods stores that sell gear for hunting. Also, it hurts many meat processing companies.
Many turned into desperation, while having no choice but to eat their own horses, cats, and dogs. The worst part was the eating of rats, poisonous snakes, and dead bodies. Their water crisis only made it worse. Salt water disease resulted in their organs being drained leaving their brains out of place and in paranoia. A slow painful death occurred there.
Horse slaughter is a necessary evil, but the ways in which it is carried out are appalling. These inhumane practices must be put to a stop in order for slaughter to remain legal. If you were to go to a meat auction, you would see tiny pens crammed with horses. Some are healthy, though most are extremely malnourished. The sight of all 105 of an animal’s bones poking through its skin is disturbing.
However the Snow Leopard does compete with hunters who illegally hunt them for the selling’s of their organs. Over Population The Snow Leopard is expected to soon become extinct, and yes there are other species such as some of their small prey seeming to be overpopulating the area. The bunnies are said to be mass producing over in their habitat but only because of how quick bunnies and hare are at reproduction. On the other hand the larger prey are said to never be a problem of over population at this point because the snow leopard feed off them daily and because they don’t have a high
People need to change their perspectives and think, “what if I was that animal”. It is such a shame to see people kill cows the way they do. The “killers” say they do it in a quick easy manner, but they never stop to think what they are really doing. By hitting a cow in the middle of its head, and trapping it in a tight space is wrong in so many ways. Instead of using all the energy trying to kill an innocent animals, it is much more useful to
Many shelters across North America provide a place to take in stray and lost animals. This is where animals are kept for short periods of time until later the decision it made to euthanizing the animal. In the society we live in the demand of breeding of designer breeds of dogs is high. Everyone wants the latest breed of dogs leaving many of the unwanted pets homeless. This isn’t the case most of dogs are deemed unadoptable because the lack social skills and forced in surviving on their own.
In many areas, the wolves are nearly gone because they were killed by humans. Wolf recovery programs are reintroducing wolves to remote forests and many people such as ranchers are unhappy about these wolves. They say that the wolves will kill their cattle and sheep while others see the reintroduction as important in reestablishing a balance in nature. Dog history is as rich and varied as the dog breeds themselves. Research about their history indicates that all dogs originated from ancestral wolves, but careful breeding has created dozens of distinct breeds that highlight desired characteristics.
