I chose this topic because people need to know what a lot of people in the world do to animals it just sickens a lot of people because of their cruelty. Animals do not deserve to die because somebody doesn’t want them or they were abandon I wish there were more people around the world that cared about animals like I do especially horses. I learned the more animals we save matters to some people. I’ve got a friend how has a lot of horses that she owns and I know she has saved more than 50 horses since she has started going to horse sales. Some people really do care about these horses that get slaughtered.
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.
(Economist,1) All because the on going battle to have horses legally considered companion animals instead of live stock. The United State Department of Agriculture has been “stingy” (McGraw, 1) to give out any information on horse slaughter. (Economist,1) except to say “Horses are livestock, same as cows and pigs” (McGraw,1) Many people around the country beg to differ. It can probably be agreed by most that horses are owned for recreational purposes, generally not for work any longer. However, it can be found in the far western states that horses still work dawn to dusk, the long hours of cowboys.
Joseph Canlas Bergen Catholic AP U.S. History September 26, 2011 The Impact of the Great Depression on Social Groups A decade following the end of World War II, tragedy befell the United States. With the transition from war to a time of peace, factories previously dedicated to the production of warfare supplies (i.e. ammo, artillery, clothing, vehicles) were forced to either shutdown or change their produce. Large amounts of money were used in the demobilization of soldiers and these incoming soldiers were in great need for re-entry into the work force. The size of the army was decreasing at the expense of the labor market, which struck its peak at 1.6 million people.
We will have to cover a lot of ground to complete our journey to San Francisco. By the third day tempters begin to get in the 80’s, fortunately the nights were cooler. It is not easy working the horses so long in the higher tempters and through the mountains. We switch the horses in the middle of the day so that they can rest. Saturday April 21, 1852, it rained all night long.
Each week and sometimes a couple days in a row we have to walk to places miles and miles away. We also build camps in only two to six hours. Before battle we gather our stuff so we are ready for anything. After all the sweaty, hard work, all I get to rest in is a tent with seven other soldiers. It is really crowded and people wont go to sleep because of the horrors of war.
Summary Preface and Numbering: “How Man? How Many?” Chapter 8 Death is not just a word that defines the extinction of life. Drew Gilpin Faust not only describes death in "This Republic of Suffering" but the magnitude in which death occurred during the Civil War era. She gives the meaning of death a whole new meaning in that it is something that we all do, just differently from one generation to the next. From 1861 to 1865, approximately 620,000 soldiers' lives were cut short, not to mention the 50,000 civilian lives that were also claimed.
But Peter Rugg seems to travel forever, without getting home. Catherine and her neighbors all heard noises from horses during the nights, so they decided to look outside for him one night, and Peter Rugg past by. Peter only stopped to ask the way to Boston. He was many times travelling in the wrong direction, and he always became angry at the people who told him the way because he thought they told him the wrong directions. People called him “the storm breeder”, because of the fact that he always was followed by the bad weather.
Saving part of our History I do not believe that we should have slaughter houses open in the United States for wild horses. I think that we should be protecting the animal that America rose in on. We need to save our wild horse population. Wild Horse Annie saw a truck go by hauling some horses and she noticed that blood was dripping out of the back of the trailer, right then she decided that she was going to do something to save the wild horses. She spent the rest of her life trying to protect wild horses.
He is a blessing to their family because he is the only child in this family who still lives. Two sisters and one brother have left the family which causes big sorrow to especially the mother who constantly has worn black clothes since their death. Sometimes he strays around in the town, being places where there are different sorts of activity. More or less willingly the parents are letting him go these places - but especially on Saturdays they keep an eye on him because the town can be dangerous as well with all the horses running in the roads, and on these Saturdays the town is dangerous due to people’s drinking. But still Nancy knows that overprotection isn’t the way to do it: “She knew that the world was risky and that she must risk her surving child to it as she had risked the others, and when the time came she straightforwardly did so”.
