There was a reason the elephant was “chained up”, it was because “he might charge if you came too close.” (pg. 328) He understood that the elephant had no control and he felt sympathy. After fired a third time” (pg.329), Orwell say “it took him half an hour to die.” (pg.330) The elephant was incapable of defending itself from the power of the coolie. The rampage when “the elephant was merely ravaging their homes.” (pg.326) narrows down the capability of the destruction caused by the elephant. If it wasn’t for the destruction of the village, and the death of a coolie, the elephant could have prevented its

Both Orwell and Wallace utilize humans’ understanding and relationship to animals to bring their arguments forward in their essays. Both authors describe how humans tend to brutalize animals for humans’ personal gain. In Orwell’s essay, the author talks about a chained up, tame elephant that was shot to death with a “.44 Winchester, [a gun] much too small to kill an elephant” because the elephant “was ravaging the bazaar” (Orwell 437). Likewise, in Wallace’s essay, Wallace expounds on the happenings of the Maine Lobster Festival and about how lobsters are boiled alive and killed for humans’ culinary enjoyment at home but especially during said festival. Consequently, both authors address the abuse and unnecessary killing of animals solely for another species to selfishly benefit.
The story is about a man who is a police officer in Burma, and already he sees how much he is hated by the local people. The main moral choice comes when he is holding the elephant gun and is about to shoot and kill the elephant. This elephant has gone into a rampage and starts destroying the village it was in. It ends up killing a man and this gives the police officer every reason to kill the elephant. There would be no legal reasons he couldn’t kill this elephant.
Once workers from the sanction learned that there was oil under the park, the only thing they could think of was MONEY, MONEY, MONEY, and how fast they could get it. They began working under the table with SOCO, trying to get somewhat of a “pay day”. SOCO the oil company, perpective about the gorilla sanction is pretty negative, one of the representive from SOCO in the documentary said: “ Who gives a shit about a fucking monkey.” They are all about the money, but to me monkeys are more important than money. It’s crazy how the workers turned on gorillas that have loved them, for a piece of dirty
In Africa, a village of the name Sankuyo earned $600,000 from the 120 animals that were allowed to be victims of trophy hunting(Onishi). Without trophy hunting, there will not be as much money owned by these African villages and the villages will slowly decline to poverty. To add to this argument, lions have been seen entering the villages, where the ban has been placed, to find food because they would normally eat the elephant carcusses left by trophy hunters. The people of these villages are claiming to be poisoning those animals who trespass in order to save their own crops. Are humans really that much more important than these innocent animals?

Zoos are highly unsafe for animals. Every day animals are being forced to entertain the public. 62 orcas have died at SeaWorld for the entertainment of selfish people (Krushel n.p). Colin Bairone one of Tilikum’s old trainers said, “I think everyone has a better understanding of the natural world and the intelligence and social infrastructure of these amazing animals and that concrete pools are not a place for them to be,” (Baker n.p). Not only do animals die for the entertainment of the people, they often become depressed.
