Imagine going to the zoo. Getting to see all sorts of unique animals. But has anyone wondered if the zoo is helping animals or is it the opposite? People had despised zoos for animal captivity and complained that zoos should be illegal. Why is that?
There is no telling what the workers of zoos do to the animals. Animals cannot speak to tell us if they are getting mistreated or not. Just seems a little absurd how they can make an animal go from one extreme to another. Animals have to completely change their whole lifestyle. They used to hunt, but now they are being fed.
Most animals are locked up in small cages all day being kept like a house pet (Keeping Wild Caught Animals - Unsafe, Illegal, Inhumane). Other animals are treated very poorly, and used in shows for entertainment like the circus (Should Wild Animals Be Kept As Pets?). Some animals are also shipped to people, and most don’t make it to the destination alive (Why Wild Animals Should Not Be Pets). When the animals don’t do what they are supposed to do in shows, it leads to neglect from the owners. Some people think that when they get the animal they are helping it, but it decreases the chance of the animal having a normal life in the wild.
They never get the love and company of their fellow species.We humans have the potential to change zoos and ban them once and for all. If we have animals that can not return to the wild they can always be turned into a nature reserve where they can still be watched but will still be in their right environment and have the right to roam is large areas of land. Cages and glass enclosures are not homes for animals; we as human beings have an obligation to all zoo animals to provide them with the choose of being wild and
All living species should be treated with care and respect, no organisms should be made a commodity for the sake of human interest. Exotic animals, which are unusual or rare species such as lions, tigers, and non-human primates – are nowadays kept within households as pets. However, according to research, 98% of the people believe that exotic animals should not be kept as “pets”. Such opinions are due to several reasons that are sometimes supported and other times opposed. Exotic animals should not be treated as pets because they are not completely tamable, they belong to their natural habitat, and they may be transmitting zoonotic diseases to those around them.
However some laws aren’t enforced enough and animals are still being abused. Wild animals held in captivity and away from their natural habitat is abuse all in itself. Forcing wild animals to perform tricks and constantly travel takes that animal abuse to a new level. Although many circuses have already been prohibited from using animals, some circuses choose to do so. Due to the abuse wild animals automatically suffer from being in captivity along with further abuse from performing in a circus, circuses should have harsher laws banning them from using animals in their performances.
Animals do not willingly sacrifice themselves for the advancement of human welfare and new technology. Their decisions are made for them because they cannot vocalize their own preferences and choices. When humans decide the fate of animals in research environments, the animals' rights are taken away without any thought of their well-being or the quality of their lives. Therefore, animal experimentation should be stopped because it violates the rights of
Animal activist want to state their opinion on how farm animals are mistreated but do not witness this abuse first hand, or they just hear it through the grapevine and believe what they hear. Most of these people do not have pets unless they are house pets such as dogs, cats, and hamsters. I believe these animal activist have no room to talk about our ranching or farming communities in a bad way because nine times out of ten, animals on a ranch and farm get cared for better than most people expect. The 4h program is a program for youth to get involved with a project such as a goat, sheep, cow or rabbit and learn how to properly care for it and exhibit that animal to its fullest potential. For example, the livestock that is being prepared to show get a bath at least twice a day if not more, and most are in a climate controlled area in the summer to stay cool
I believe that we should be against animal cruelty because animals have never done anything to us and if they have, it’s because it was how they were raised and treated from when they were little. If we stopped hurting animals and treating them like they don’t deserve to live or be loved then we would have less problems with animal cruelty and less animal attacks. I think people should have more rules and regulations to keep a pet. Such as, they can’t have a past of animal abuse or neglecting of any animals. People shouldn’t have over five pets in their house, or they might hoard and neglect their animals by not feeding them regularly or not giving them enough attention, so they might become mean or scared around people.
Animals are not common thing people are interested in. however, many people think that we must stop the unnecessary pain which animal suffer from in zoos, aquarium and circus. Also, animals are used in medical research and experiment. Some organizations are against medical results from animals experimentation. Animals are being badly used in circus in order to entertain the viewers and make them laugh.
