You could save an animal from drowning, but you could save a person from drowning too; the choice is difficult. You could protest for animals to have rights and not be tortured at slaughterhouses and still eat them from factories that do things like kill them in an abusive way. Animal rights, animals should have some rights with some limitations. I have issues involving this topic about animal rights because i have mixed emotions about how we can experiment and torture animals but still have them as pets. In articles by Jeff McMahan, “Eat Animals The Nice Way”, and by Maureen Nandi Mitra, “Animals Are Persons, too”, they talk from two different positions where we should eat animals and another where we shouldn’t experiment on them and let them be.
Most of them compare animal testing to racism or sexism. According to these activists, all animal deserve respect and should not suffer for any reason. And I agree with them because the vast majority of experiments using animals are so invasive and damaging. These poor animals do not willingly sacrifice themselves for the advancement of human welfare and new technology. Sadly, everyday animals' rights are violated when they are used in experiments because they are not given a
It is not right to euthanize dogs because it is unfair due to equal rights, it is cruel to kill animals, and there are possibly better ways to treat dogs who bite people. Killing dogs for biting is considered an unfair punishment, and they should have the same rights as humans.
Animals all over the world are being abused every single day most of them will not make it to see tomorrow or have the love of a family they desire. Animals are not just objects used for your entertainment or for your sports but they are meant to either be wild or to be loved by a family who will not abuse them. You should not abuse them or abandoned them to fend for themselves when all they need is a little bit of love to make them happy. There are many sports that use particularly dogs and most of them are called dog fights which are used for your entertainment and they abuse the dogs to make them fear humans and other dogs. Dogs should not be afraid of other dogs but they should be able to cooperate with each other and have a family that will not abuse them and make the fight.
In the articles of Jeremy Rifkin, Victoria Braithwaite, and Ed Yong, there's a deep research and debate whether animals should be given the right to have human rights or not. All authors include their perspective on the issue and provide scientific evidence. However, I believe that there should be a separation of rights between animals and humans because there is no biological basis for drawing the line. Giving the right to apes, what factors exclude other mammals like dogs, cats, and birds.
People say negative things on the media so if others see it, they believe it’s true and just believe what others think, but in reality it shouldn’t work like that. Humans say things poorly about pitbulls that give them a bad reputation, therefore these dogs end up in animal shelters. “Researchers found that potential pet owners were less likely to take home a dog if shelters called it a pit bull because the breed is negatively perceived and considered less friendly and more aggressive than other breeds,” (Source F). It takes pitbulls almost three times longer to be adopted from animal shelters. A lot of people just believe pits are mean and can hurt you based off of their past.
The issue that causes the most anger for many breeders is when people ignore how much health testing they do for their dogs. Many people believe that health testing is a wonderful way to prevent many genetic diseases. Health testing looks at the genes of an animal and searches for impurities, therefore, if an impurity is found the animal is not used for breeding to ensure it does not pass down that disease (Peck). There are a lot of breeders who believe that this fact is overlooked when people who are anti-purebreds make their arguments. Stephanie Poot was one breeder who was extremely offended after reading an article that slandered dog breeders and responded with an article called “Dog Breeder Offended” in which she calls out the article that made her and fellow breeders out to be monsters.
And if they do, we need to have a more serious prison sentence. I am going to tell you a story of an animal abuser I have heard of recently. The story contains some disturbing topics and ideas. If you are squeamish or love animals as family, please skip this paragraph. On February 17, 2014, a man named Bradley Boley was put in charge of a man’s 2-month-old Chihuahua named Buddy as the man went on vacation.
Many are not aware of the problems that using a fake service dog can cause, but those who are disabled understand the issue. This has been a problem for many years, and is only getting worse. Fake service dogs reflect a bad image for the real ones, and “discriminate against or restrict access to disabled persons” (Colman). The recurring problem of these fake service dogs is well known to such a small percentage of the population, it is difficult to create a stable solution that will be effective for a long period of time.
