Are Zoos Unethical By:Kalynn Deppe An issue that has been hotly debated since the brink of zoos has been whether they are ethical or not. Although some believe that zoos can be beneficial to animals, thousands of research has shown this not to be true. The main reasons zoos are devious is because, there artificial environments are harmful, the animals are more prone to diseases, and it can damage children's views on society. To begin, zoos are unprincipled due to the fact that they take animals out of the wild and place them in synthetic environments that have failed to meet the animals designated standard of living. For example, research has shown that some larger animals need for space is not fulfilled in their confined cages.
In my opinion, animals should not be taken into captivity because of their inhumane treatment, lack of natural freedom, and lackluster regulations to defend them. First, I believe animals should stay in the wild because of their inhumane treatment while in captivity. This can be seen in many forms. In his article “Zoos: Myth and Reality,” the author
Those products aren’t like the ones we use, they have different types of chemicals and they try them on the animals to see if it will affect us. Animals testing should not occur because killing an animal is not helping us It’s messing up the world. Animals aren’t something that we could manipulate they are living creatures that have feelings just like us. Humans wouldn’t like to be in cages or laboratories right? Animal testing is cruel because scientists do many horrible tests on the animals.
In the zoo he found dead untreated animals left in their cages and when he took their rabbits to the vet he found that most of them had infections because they weren’t cared for (“10 facts about zoos”, 2010). Finally, wild animals that are in zoos get beaten and aren’t taken care of. As a result, the wild animals suffer and die in
Animal rights activists argue that it is inhumane to house animals in inadequate habitats and are upset that many species that aren’t considered endangered are being held in zoos around the world. Zoo advocates argue for the conservation and research of endangered species, and thoroughly work to benefit different species and keep them healthy. Both arguments base their reasoning off of varying ideas, animals rights activists address the physical downfalls of animals in captivity, how it is nearly impossible to perfectly recreate an animals natural habitat, and the abuse of animals in captivity. Zoo advocates argue that the conservation and research of endangered species is necessary to keep them from extinction, they fight for humane treatment of animals around the world and work hard to show the real problem in today’s environment. Endearing Emotions As you can imagine, stories of animal abuse and the destruction of natural habitats around the world cultivate a strong emotional foundation that drives many people’s
The results from the animals would be very different in a human because they won’t be stressed like the animals are due to what they have to go through. We do not need to test on animals since their results are affected due to stress, and that would not be the case with humans. Even though millions of animals are tested on for cancer research and billions of dollars are spent on it, 95% of cancer drugs tested on animals fail. In fact, cancer has been cured in mice plenty of times but it does not work for
Oh no you have just been shot by a tranquilizer dart and you 're put in a truck and you never see your friends and family ever again. Well that 's what happens when animals go to zoos. Zoos are harmful to animals. To begin with, Animals aren 't getting the right diet when they live in zoos. Also, animals are not getting the right amount of space.
This terrible abuse happens often in these smaller zoos. The handlers aren’t actually educated in the way they should with how to treat them. People aren’t doing anything about it because they decide they just want to go and have fun watching them and then leave with no after thought. Do these creatures deserve this kind of manhandling and suffering in their life with no consequences for the humans that commit this crime? This kind of abuse also happens in the way that they don’t get treatment with their health, whether it’ a wound, infection or if they are underweight.
Furthermore, visitors' reckless behavior of throwing improper food or other substances can be a safety hazard for zoo animals. On the other hand, many zoo-owners are mean with money spent on the scientific design of zoos' construction, resulting in a lack of adequate protection for visitors. Even if the design of the zoos' construction has greatly improved, zoos are still dangerous for human beings for some unpredictable factors. Presumably, you still remember the case that a male visitor died from being attacked by a tiger in Ning Bo on 29 January 2017 due to his intention of sneaking across the area which the tiger inhabited in order to steal a ride. Chances are that danger lies in recklessness and unpredictability.
Circus animal abuse is a problem that people should be aware of because the animals are harmed, the animals are not taken care of, and they have a higher chance of developing health problems. We can solve this problem by making people more aware of this abuse by signing petitions, creating signs, and educating young ones. Before you think about going to the circus, consider what the animals in the circus have to go through in order to entertain you. For example, circus trainers use sharp metal hooks called bullhooks to hit animals. “The elephant learns that compliance with commands adverts a painful stab or strike.” (Rockwell 7).
People say that if u test on the animals nobody would care if they died. The also say that it won’t harm the animals but it really does. Some people also say that animal testing is bad because of the danger you are putting the animals in. The animals are going extinct because of the testing. In conclusion, animal testing should not be allowed because it is torture.
