The animals are held in tanks, large pools, or fenced off sections in the ocean. Though animal shows featuring dolphins and whales attract many people, it is cruel to capture these wild animals to force them to perform for crowds. Places such as sea aquariums or theme parks, like Sea World, promote the captivity of marine animals, when they should be free in their natural habitat in the ocean. Animals held in captivity lose their sense of self reliance and their natural instincts, because food and care is provided for them. It is cruel and wrong of the human population to enslave animals for the sheer purpose of entertainment.
What is more, zoos are like prisons for animals as they live in small cages and do not get necessary food. In addition, animals become very aggressive and unpredictable as they get older and often attack zoo keepers and other people. However, most people think that zoos help endangered species survive. But this is not true because most rare animals are extremely difficult to breed in captivity. Besides, in zoos, it is almost impossible to meet the animals’ natural needs.
The resulting anxiety and tension cause fights between orcas. In the wild, orcas have strong social bonds that may last for life, their social rules prohibit serious violence against each other, and when fights do occur, they can find space to flee. In captivity, there's nowhere for them to go, which leads to injuries and death.” (SeaWorld of Hurt) Besides fighting with fellow killer whales, Orcas are biting the bars, concrete and tanks to escape due to stress and anxiety. The diet of a whale in captivity is unlike the diet of a whale in the wild. PETA’s campaign SeaWorld of Hurt shares, “In captivity, orcas are unable to hunt and obtain water from their prey, so SeaWorld gives them gelatin, a substance that is not natural for them, in an attempt to keep them hydrated.
Dr Carl Meyer from Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology stated that mass levels of shark culling “runs the risk of ecosystem-level cascade effects where a general lack of sharks results in boom or bust in populations of species further down the food chain”. Furthermore when nets are used to trap sharks, often animals such as dolphins, turtles, whales and dugongs become trapped in them. Turtles are one of the most endangered species as a whole and are just innocent bystanders in this war between humans and sharks. We need to be careful of not affecting other animals in this quest to reduce shark numbers in the name of nothing. Sharks can already be caught legally by commercial and recreational fishers so any cull would be largely
Is keeping animals in zoos cruel? Background: zoos, endangered animals, roaming around their habitat Disagree: safe, enough food, protected poachers, Agree: natural habitat, no socializing Nowadays, in zoos all over the world, zookeepers are trying to protect endangered animals, by keeping them in captivity. The question is by doing so, do they really protect the animals or are they harming them. Some people claim that keeping animals in the zoo is not cruel as animals can get plenty to eat without having to worry about scarcity of food. 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.
• By zoo I think you mean animal prison. Besides robbing them of freedom: disease, illness, mistreatment by handler’s visitors and other animals, injury, psychological distress, injury to visitors, and the worst of all death of the animals. Good zoos are fine, but there are some zoos out there which most people don't even know exist which are illegal and the species of animals kept are not well looked after. • While I agree to a great extent to both of the previous statements I would also have to say that the one thing about zoos that is good is that there are countless people in the world that do not have the means or opportunity to see wild animals in their natural habitat and a zoo is the only way they will ever have the chance to do so. It is sad though the way some animals are treated in zoos; I personally think the board of directors of a zoo should be personally held accountable for the well fare of the animals in their keeping.
>In order to help you better understand the importance of why wild animals do not make good pets, I will explain how you can't take the “wild” out of wild animals, the dangers of having them, and share stories of why it doesn't work. >>First, I will explain why you can't take the “wild” out of wild animals. >According to Webster's dictionary.com >A wild animals is defined as an animal living in a state of nature; not tamed or domesticated. >Wild animals aren't domesticated simply by being captive born or hand-raised. It's a different story with cats and dogs, who have been domesticated by selective breeding for desired traits for over thousands of years.
The quality of the experiments was necessitous. In this study, Roberts (2007) states that, The anatomic, metabolic, and cellular differences between animals and people make animals poor models for human beings. Drugs that pass in animal test are not successful in human clinical tests. Animals as their matter are not germane to human health. Several can cause human diseases that can damage us instead of helping us.
Ethical Treatment of Animals Animals have played an important role in many aspects of this world; some look upon these roles with favoritism, some with disgust. Animals give live birth and are considered different from humans by some people because of their behavior. Some animals are consumed as food by humans and other animals or trapped for their furs. Many times people get animals as pets and neglect them. Some animals are pulled out of their habitat and are used as research; yet some humans think they do not deserve any rights because they are animals.
Trying to assess cruelty is made all the more difficult because we do not always know, and cannot always see, what becomes of the animals at night when all the people have gone home. Very often this is when the real process of confinement takes place. When animals are brought up in captivity, they obviously have no knowledge how to raise themselves in the wild. It often does not recognise other members
