The issue of restrictions on dangerous dogs arose following the mauling death of four-year-old Ayen Chol. Leanne Pelen, in her opinion piece These dogs are guns without a safety catch, published in the Herald Sun, contends that the laws in Victoria must be changed to further restrict pit bull terriers and protect people. She uses a concerned, emotional and occasionally bordering on outraged tone to engage a broad audience of readers. In the same paper Rachel Andersson responds in a reasonable and sympathetic tone. Her opinion piece, titled With training and love, they are devoted pets, is directed at those who fear pit bull terriers.
Around the world there are Army’s like the one in this book, that do not care what they are shooting at or killing, even if it is a poor animal that has done nothing wrong. Lastly, people have many problems they will have to deal with throughout their life. In the book, Sophie’s mom leaves the sanctuary to go study Bonobos across town. While she is gone the Congo Army comes and kills the workers at the sanctuary but Sophie gets away with Otto. She has to take care of herself and the baby Bonobo.
I shouldn’t ought to let no stranger shoot my dog” (p 60). George takes this comment to heart, and this foreshadows George’s decision to kill Lennie himself later in the book. Lastly, the chapter in which Curley’s wife dies begins with Lennie stroking his dead puppy, which died because he petted it too hard. “When I’m doin’ my hair sometimes I jus’ set an’ stroke it ‘cause it’s so soft…Feel right aroun’ there an’ see how soft it is” (p 88). Since the reader knows Lennie likes to pet soft things, but he has a record of killing them when he does, it is obvious her death is imminent.
Even though many of these animals have been born in captivity, they still have their natural instincts and will turn on people when they have a chance. Every year in the news there is at least one story in the news that an animal either turns on its trainer, or somehow someone got into an exhibit and the animal kills that person. This paper will discuss the ethical treatment of not only zoo and circus animals, but also the animals in our own lives and what society calls ethical treatment. Everyone at one time or another have seen or heard stories on the news about the ethical treatment of animals and what people are trying to do to stop this treatment. Whether it is puppy mills or the wrongful treatment of animals in zoos it can all hit home for us.
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.
Later Grey Beaver was tricked into selling White Fang to Beauty Smith, who abused him and trained him to be a ferocious fighter. In a fight with a bulldog, he was badly injured and nearly suffocated when he was saved by Scott. Scott awakened his need to love and to be loved with care and patience. In the end he grew so attached to Scott that he followed him to California. White Fang learned a bunch of lessons in his hard life: (P15)Taking risks can be painful (P19)Live things were food, but
Dogs will be forced to take euthanasia if they were not adopted for a period of time. Approximately, there are 33000 dogs killed every year, this figure shows how severe the problem is. Identifying abandoned dogs’ owners is not a fully-fledged solution. Those iron-hearted owners will then be brought to justice and banned for life from owning a pet but without showing any repentance. However, it is an undeniable fact that they did escape from their responsibility.
Disproving Stereotypes Many people believe pit-bulls are violent, unsafe dogs. There have been numerous articles proving that but the TV show, Pit-bulls and Parolees, disproves that. Tia, the owner of the rescue, takes in all pit-bulls with or without a fighting background and rehabilitates them. The pit-bulls turn out to be friendly, loving, and safe dogs to be around. Similarly, Chinua Achebe, author of Things Fall Apart, disproves stereotypes.
“The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look on the murder of men.” (Leonardo Da Vinci). Animal cruelty and abuse has been increasing rapidly especially in countries that haven’t applied any animal right law; Indonesia is one out of many countries that haven’t see the impact of animal abuse in our life. I found this topic interesting because I am an animal enthusiast, lover, and activist; I’ve joined a lot of animal conservative group such as World Wide Fund for Nature Indonesia (WWF Indonesia) and Jakarta Animal Aid Network (JAAN) since 2013, My passion for animals has brought me into a stage where I want to protect their kind so that the number of human cruelty decrease. There are three main
Should Animal Testing Be Banned? Should animals be sacrificed for the benefits of humans? Every year, millions of animals are poisoned, blinded, killed in crude tests to evaluate the toxicity of consumer products and their ingredients. Animals rights activists believe animals have the right to live a healthy pain-free life just as people do, but sometimes that's not always the case. Animal experimentation continues to make living a pain-free life impossible for some animals.
