Hunting has a deeper meaning to some people and to take that away from them is in some ways inhumane. In addition, the detrimental wildlife issues that would emerge if hunting were no longer an option to keep animal populations under control would increase significantly. The idea of keeping hunting alive is crucial to keep our wildlife safe. Hunting may not apply to all people in the world, but it has to be done. In today’s world there is no other possible way to manage our wildlife in such an effective manner as we do it now.
“The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who do nothing.” -Albert Einstein Animal abuse is a problem that has been going on for a while, but early in the last century; people have began to call it out. It wasn’t until 1936 that the first animal shelter had started by Caroline Earle White. However, others have taken an advantage of this, and just send stray animals to shelters, and it seems fine, right? Well, this is where the violence comes in:There are some shelters were there are “no-kill” policies where some shelters will euthanize the animals for no good reason. Some animal shelters have no-kill policies while others don’t.
For a long time there has been the debate if Zoos, Circuses, and aquariums violate human rights considering that in certain cases they help animals from extinction. While that could be the case we also see that animals are unhappy, mistreated badly, and also they are only there for the sole purpose of human entertainment. On a personal belief I think that they do violate human rights, and they should be shut down. While they can save animals, there is way too much more evidence leaning towards it being bad. Zoos, circuses, and aquariums should be shut down.
In a article it was stated, “In addition, zoological parks and aquariums have played a role in helping to preserve species that have been driven close to extinction due to habitat loss and hunting” (Point). Taking an endangered animal out of its habitat and putting it in a place where it cannot be harmed will help out that species for a while. The Zoos main part it plays is protection for that endangered species, but what is questioned is the fact that is it actually being protected or is the Zoo causing more harm. In the article, “Zoos and Circuses: Overview”, it is correctly stated,” The birth of the environmental movement in the 1960s and '70s led to the establishment of laws protecting species threatened by extinction, including the 1973 Endangered Species Act (ESA) in the United States. These laws also established guidelines for establishing the conservation status of species and provided federal oversight over the keeping of rare or endangered animals.
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.
And when an animal in a zoo makes a friend their friend could be sold to another zoo leaving both the animals even more stressed and lonely. When you you go to zoos you are supporting this kind of treatment on animals, so when you go to zoos you see the cute happy animals but what you don't see is the stress, frustration, and loneliness the animals have to endure. As you know zoos are horrible to animals but did you know that stress from zoos lead animals to self mudilation. Often time when animals are stressed the resort to unnatural behaviors such as pacing swaing and overe grooming, and if you think thats bad that was just best case scenario. Most of the time animals eat there own vomit and even resort to self mudilation but animals ahav allso been known to eat their own of spring.
Animal cruelty is becoming an issue that is too big to ignore. It can be defined as neglect or the infliction of pain or suffering towards animals. One might notice that this is an issue that is becoming more common in zoos and aquariums. These places can be wonderful for the animals, but can also portray an awful life for the captive animals. No animal should have to go through the pain and stress that many are suffering through.
As even though there’s many cases of animals being harmed and mistreated by zoo personal, there’s just as many cases of the animals being treated with love. [research about all the good zoos do for animals]. Illnesses that befall the animals, that would otherwise kill them if they were in the wild, can get treated almost immediately with veterinarians and nurses that work for zoos. Feeding the animals is also a prime concern for zoos so starvation isn’t as common in zoos as it is in the wild. Zoo animals also are safe from natural predators and hunting that occurs in the wild.
Do zoos fulfill the needs of the animals? Should animals be kept in only one enclosure for their whole life? Is it worth all the time and money for the animals to be unhappy? Many people think zoos are doing a good job of keeping animals happy in the man made zoos. Because people think that, they support the zoos by giving them money to see these animals instead of going to animal preservations where the enclosures aren’t entirely man made.
Zoos and aquariums are institutions that capture live animals and keep them in cages or large enclosures for public exhibition. To this day, zoos and aquariums are not banned, but that has not stopped people from fighting for the freedom and rights of animals. The debate between whether zoos and aquariums should banned or not has become an ongoing issue and still is today. Although zoos and aquariums do contribute to the economy, they should be banned because animals in captivity suffer from starvation and health issues, often die prematurely, and can easily cause harm to people due to be kept in confined areas. Many people argue that zoos and aquariums are beneficial because they contribute a great amount of income to the economy.
