#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. However, the cruelty towards these animals is unbelievable. On today's factory farms, animals are crammed by the thousands into filthy, windowless sheds and confined to wire cages, gestation crates, barren dirt lots, and other cruel confinement systems. These animals will never raise their families, root around in the soil, build nests, or do anything that is natural and important to them. In some cases, they live without daylight.
According to Mayra Calvani in her journal in World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) mentioned that in Latin America and Europe, around 250,000 bulls die per year due to tortured and killed for entertainment purpose especially in bullfighting. (M.Calvani, 2008)². This shows that, keeping animals for entertainment purposes promotes animal abuse. Secondly, captivity also takes away animals’ freedom. Many of wild animals cannot cope with situation that they are taken from their natural habitats and placed in captivity.
Venezuela’s prison La Sabeneta is one of the worst prisons due to that they have one guard to every 150 inmates. Corruption and bribery is normal with the staff and 624 hurt and 196 murdered in 1995 shows the brutality of the prison when an inmate had a gun battle with the inmates. La Sante prison in France is well known for its high suicide rate with 124 suicides in just 1999. Some have even eaten rat poison to escape from living there. Many have become slaves while others only leave their cells for 4 hours a day.
Millions of animals are poisoned, blinded and killed every year in out-dated product tests for cosmetics, household-cleaning products, personal-care products, and even fruit juices. Imagine being an animal in a laboratory, having no control over any aspect of your life, living inside a locked closet, not choosing when and what you eat, what you do with your time or even deciding when the lights go on and off. This would be your life; deprivation, isolation, misery. Studies have shown that there are various biological differences between humans and animals in the way each react to chemicals, resulting in unreliable data and the health of consumers compromised for scientific values. Tests showed that when 12 substances were tested on rabbit and human skin only two out of twelve results were similar.
A Persuasive Essay on Animal Testing. Millions of animals suffer every year in experiments due to Animal Testing. Tests where different species (like mice, rats, frogs, rabbits, dogs, cats, hamsters, monkeys, fish and birds) can experience severe pain and distress. The way that animals are also bred, transported, housed and handled for these ‘experiments’ may also cause added suffering. Over 3.5 million animals were used in experiments in 2008 in the UK alone.
The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) estimated in 2007, that approximately 250,000 dogs were placed in a fighting pit nationwide ("Animal Cruelty"). In addition 40,000 people were involved in organized fights, while 100,000 people were involved in street level fights ("Animal Cruelty"). What can cause this practice to be considered a sport and not cruelty? And if proven to be a sport, what does a dog actually win? Freedom?
This is what happened in Russia in the early 1900’s. This is what happened in Animal Farm by George Orwell. John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton said it best, “Absolute power corrupts absolutely.” In Animal Farm, the animals, representing Russia’s people, were upset with the management of the farm. They were eating only enough to stay alive, so they finally had a breakthrough and Rebelled against the humans on the farm, representing the Royal Family in Russia. When the pigs came into power they had seven commandments by which all of the animals need to live.
The children and elders were the weakest so they died very easily. Out of the 7,000,000 that died, 3,000,000 were children. At the height of the Famine Ukrainian villagers were dying at the rate of 25,000 per day or 1,000 per hour or 17 per minute. http://www.faminegenocide.com/resources/facts.html, 5/22/2012. The Ukrainians ate anything they could get their hands on.
Throughout the past two decades, extreme animal rights groups have claimed responsibility for hundreds of crimes and acts of terrorism, including arson, bombings, vandalism, burglary, animal release, and harassment. These crimes have caused damage costing more than one hundred million dollars. While some activists have been captured, animal rights terrorism cells, are extremely difficult to identify and most of the attacks remain unsolved. Although it has been overshadowed by Islamic terrorist threats since September 11, animal rights terrorism still remains one of the United States most active terrorist movements. This paper intends to explore the Animal Rights terrorist movement and prove that Animal Rights activists pose a significant domestic terror threat.
Government figures show that three million animals per year in the UK alone are poisoned, surgically injured, driven insane, burned, irradiated, starved, electrocuted, kept in solitary confinement and eventually killed all in the name of research, in experiments that most people would find hard to even imagine. Indeed, the torture that laboratory animals are subjected to would be illegal under any other premise. Yet the military, pharmaceutical industry, universities, private research groups, charitable organisations and energy companies continue to carry out these daily atrocities with government and public support. In a nation of animal lovers, it is difficult to accept that were the public actually aware of the systematic and brutal conduct that these animals are subjected to, they would still be indifferent to or in favour of vivisection. Unfortunately though, the cruelty and suffering that is so rife in laboratories is always hidden from public
