In the article “Do You Really Want a Baby Tiger?”, the author states “A wild animal is never 100 percent predictable. An animal that has behaved one way for many years cannot suddenly change. Domestication is not something that happens in one or two generations: it takes hundreds or thousands of years (Lewis).” Exotic pets have a specific environment and climate that they are supposed to adapt to instead of living as a caged animal inside of someone’s home. Many may argue that exotic animals should be allowed as pet because people find them controllable when they are immature. According to “Do You Really Want a Baby Tiger?”, “Most people who own exotic pets find them irresistible-and manageable-when they are small (Lewis).” However, soon enough an adorable cub becomes a powerful adult.
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.
It’s a big responsibility to take care of an exotic animal and it’s a risk to your life. A cage is not a home for an exotic animal, they should be free in the wilderness doing what they do best. An exotic animal such as a tiger is very dangerous! In source one the author Mia Lewis states “Out on their own, these exotic animals can be a further danger to the public, and even to the environment”. In other words it won’t matter at all if they are trained, as soon as you release them they will act on their natural behaviors.
Unfortunately, being as elusive and nocturnal as the cheetahs were made it difficult to spot the problem right away, until the problem was already too large (Wildlife). Now, scientists are finding it difficult to help the cheetah. With research being almost impossible to obtain, they have to rely almost completely on guesswork. In addition, they find it difficult to raise support for the Saharan Cheetahs because there aren’t many pictures of them, making it difficult to connect with people (Wildlife). Now the cheetahs face extinction, and without help, this wonderful predator may never hunt again.
If something isn’t done to stop this, tigers will become nothing more than a thing of the past. As their numbers drop rapidly, two causes are the most prominent. Poaching and habitat destruction are causing the tiger population to reduce swiftly. Poaching is having a horrible effect on the tiger population and causing their numbers to drop significantly. Despite the fact that the hunting of tigers is extremely illegal, poachers still risk it because of how much money they can make.
Also, animals are not getting the right amount of space. Lastly, animals are getting a disease called Zoochosis. After reading this essay You can be the judge if zoos are helpful or harmful to animals. First, zoos are harmful to animals because zoos are not giving animals a healthy diet. In the article Zoos The Historical Debate it states, “Red Pandas died after ingesting rat poison.I can 't imagine how they found the rat poison.
Take that mom and dad! You many think it would be very hard to become an owner of an exotic pet, but turns out it can be easier them getting a dog or a cat. In the article, Wild Obsession, Lauren Slater states “privately owning exotic animals is currently permitted in a handful of states with essentially no restrictions: You must have a licence to own a dog, but you are free to purchase a lion or baboon and keep it as a pet.” due to this lack of registration on exotic animals we have no idea how many are currently in the United States. Slater mentions that there are at least five thousand tigers here in the United States. While some do
Did you know that there is numerous species that are endangered and becoming extinct? One terrestrial mammal that is experiencing threats to their extinction are lemurs, this jeopardized spices' is most common in our zoos today then in the wildlife. African islands including Madagascar is their natural habitat, and studies demonstrate that is their only home in the world because the geographical location is isolated. There are different kinds of lemurs and some of the most common ones that we know today are: the ring-tailed lemur (Lemur catta) , silky sifaka, mouse lemurs. The scientific name for lemurs is “Lemuroidea”.
If the monkey gets mad so easily, lots of things could get ruined and the caretaker could get frightened or hurt by the monkey. “When you leave the monkey unattended, it will become destructive.” Finally, If the owner is like most people and have a job or things that they need to get done throughout the day, the monkey will be alone and break or damage anything they can get their hands on. Since the caretaker will probably not like this, they will most likely have to stay home bounds more often, which to most people isn’t always so fun. In conclusion, finger monkeys will harm people and things if they are kept as pets, which won’t make anyone happy. Let’s let the poor animals go where they need to go so nothing goes
Zoos may be very necessary for endangered species. But, there are different ways how to save and continue endangered species, and every zoo have had choice how they do it. Some zoos are breeding endangered species trying to continue the species, but that is not right, because it leads to very complicated health issues. For example white tiger who are very rare animal, breeding requirements are that all white tigers parents must be white tigers too, to get only white tiger, and so are zoos breeding white tigers fathers with their daughters and mothers with their sons. But some zoos again are preserving and studying endangered species in captivity to save endangered species in the wild.
A cheetah compared to a cat is an exotic animal compared to a pet. Exotic animals are animals that stay wild, do not have resources that are easily accessible, and can be dangerous which means that humans should not be allowed to keep them as pets. If exotic animals stay wild then they should not be allowed as a pet. In the text piece entitled “Do You Really Want a Baby Tiger” by Mia Lewis it states “Exotic animals are something else. They are wild animals with wild animal instincts, even when born in captivity”.
Also, Pi has to live in a scary environment and my evidence that supports this is he has to live with a 350- pound tiger and he can barely go on the boat because the tiger knows when he is on the boat. The similarities are there both dangerous because has to fight with a mother polar bear and two cubs and Pi can’t really go on the boat because the tiger is always there or the tiger sometimes is watching him. The differences are that Pi has two fight with a lot of bears and Pi has to face with a hungry tiger. In conclusion, Keesh and Pi have to survive in an extreme environment. They both have to survive by using their resources and they both do.
Animal Testing is Inhumane. Multiple species are dying by normal nature happenings, such as being eaten or something like that. However, that 's just the life cycle. But even with this ongoing cycle, the deaths that happen in it don 't get anywhere close to the amount of animals killed by us humans. Each year, 100 million animals, including mice, rats, dogs, frogs, cats, and more, are all killed for scientific usage.
