“Their efforts are targeted at swaying public opinion through protests, advertising, and public relations efforts; at programs geared toward students; and at changing laws through lobbying, litigation, and government involvement” (Day 50). Many people agree that it was the animal rights movement that most affected the circus (Solis). “Thirty-six years of PETA protests, of documenting animals left to die, beaten animals, and much more, has reduced attendance to the point of no return” (“Internet, animal”). The animal rights activists’ ways of protests caused lots of people to no longer attend the circus. PETA believes that “animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, or use for entertainment” (Day 14).
Parks claim that conservation is the main reason they are open, but nearly half of all organizations spend 1% of their revenues in conservation (Zoos Hurt Conservation). So what does that really say about zoos and sea-parks? Ultimately, zoos and sea-parks should be banned. The limited space given to animals is not enough for any of them, it is like being imprisoned. The enclosures lack plenty of the nature found in wildlife.
Probably, the answer to that previous question will be no. Zoos take down at least 30 animals per year, a figure too high, considering almost half of those 30 are just put down because they are too old or not attractive anymore, not because they are sick, or have any condition at all. Many of you will be concerned about this number, but there are some people who are uncommitted to the animal’s well-being, and just say that because in a zoo you have 2,000 animals, 30 a year is not a big fraction, but… does this really
However, it is very rare that the circus trainers abide to these guidelines. PETA states, “The USDA cited Ringling for failing to maintain an adequate program of veterinary care for three elephants. The facility’s veterinarians prescribed daily treatments for these elephants, but the treatment logs showed one- to four-day gaps, during which time treatments were not given”(“Ringling Bros. and Barnum &
Stray animals that aren’t neutered reproduce and then there are even more animals on the street. The homeless animal population has skyrocketed due to the following reasons: lack of commitment on the part of the pet owner, the belief that pets are disposable, the misconception that the Humane Society or shelters can take care of all unwanted pets, and failure of the pet owner to spay and neuter animals(The Humane Society of Central Illinois). That being said, it is believed that animals are just objects. Once they aren’t cute anymore or they aren’t worth the effort and money to take care of, they are something that can just be thrown outside and forgotten about. This fuels the growth of stray
And to say we need to put humans needs first is just selfish because we dont own the world we share it with millions of other organisms.so you see there isnt really a reasson wh aminals shouldnt have the same rihts as humans Now that you know how horrible zoo are to animals you probablynever want anything to do with zoos but if you still want to vist zoos just keep in mind that aimals in zoos get no exersize and are and are fed impropper diets. But after all this and you still wanna go to the zoo just know that animals can feel love pain heartbrak and lonlyness all he same as humans so can you live with your self putting animals through this type of pain and sadness or will you do something and and stop supporting
Animals live separately from its family in the zoo, and there is usually no parents who could teach them basic skills, which could help the animal to survive in the wildness. Once they are released to nature, they might not know how to survive. The point is that they have no skills of hunting or fighting off the other predators. Moreover, some people try to argue claiming that keeping animals in the zoo is beneficial for education, in fact, kids can learn almost nothing from it, and it is necessary to perceive animals in their natural conditions. According to CAPS reports that more than 2,800 children surveyed following accessed London zoo, the outcome of this survey indicated that many children are not just a lack of educating from the zoo, but a negative learning outcome.
Zoos treat animals poorly, care more about profit, and rob them from having normal lives. First, zoos treat their animals very poorly and are cruel to them. For example, an article from ABC News.go talks about a sloth bear at the Toledo Zoo that died of dehydration because zoo officials thought she was pregnant. They denied food and water for weeks. The zoo animals have to live in tiny, filthy, and barren enclosures.
In zoos, the living conditions are poor, because there, animals sometimes starve to death, catch deseases and left to die, the medical care is very poor, and animals are forced to do whatever the crowd wants them to do, while in nature reserves, the animals get to do whatever they want and whenever they want . In nature reserves the animals are not forced to do anything, are not killed, not drugged, and most importantly, not
The animal lifespan can be shorten, if the zoos or organization does not provide enough space and health care. From the journal I have ready by Cohn, the case study of elephants in the zoo that has been a controversial debate through times. Just by looking at the whole image, in wild, the average of an elephant that walked per day is 50 miles, but in zoos, they were not. The zoo chained the elephants all day long; therefore, the elephants stood still for many hours. Moreover, some of the zoo walked the elephants before the gates open.
