Greyhound racing must be banned because it is cruel and brutal to the animal. When you go to the greyhound races you don't know what is really happening behind the scenes. What's really happening is live baiting, greyhound cruelty and greyhound exploitation. Do you know what your betting on? Rabbits, possums and piglets.
Statements such as "why worry about animals when so many people die from malaria, violence and war?" are not quite right. Although in his book, the author mostly worried about the suffering of animals, which in itself is a controversial point, it also affects a very important for mankind issue - a farm on which the animals have been growing. In unsanitary conditions many diseases can be developed, sequentially these conditions on the farms increase the likelihood of unintended human health consequences. The problem of global warming, which is also contributed by factory farming affects already now all people, despite the fact you eat meat or not.
Furthermore, while critics argue that laws have been issued which protect the physical and mental health of animals used as test subjects, the Animal Welfare Act is only US law that governs the use of laboratory animals. For example, the People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals (PETA) wrote an article regarding the Animal Welfare Act and its inefficiency in protecting lab animals. The article explained that no experiment is prohibited, no matter how grievous or petty; that painkillers are never required; and when alternatives to animal test subjects are feasible, federal law does not require their use. This alludes to the fact that the only law attempting is allowing laboratory animals to be tortured. They can be burned, shocked, poisoned, isolated, starved, forcibly restrained, addicted to drugs, and brain-damaged.
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. The both sides of this topic are very controversial because there are many opinions about this and in this essay i will explain the both sides and in between of the argument. Between the arguments of animals being experimented on and animals being people who are our pets; there is a major controversial conflict about it. In the article, “Eating Animals the Nice Way.” by Jeff McMahan, he states, “Many people are opposed to factory farming because of the terrible suffering it inflicts on animals, yet see no
In lines 11-12, Cullen writes “Gaunt eagle whose raw pinions stain the bars/ That prison you, so men cry for the stars!”. Here, the usage of gaunt describes the eagle, a symbol for freedom, as an animal who is haggard due to suffering or hunger. Cullen further demeans this symbol of freedom when he writes “raw pinions”. This is a term that indicates that the zookeepers have cut off the eagle’s pinions, the parts that are necessary for flight, forever trapping it in its cage. Further in the poem,
Russell Westbrook was selected to play the role as the Mechanical Hound for many reasons. Russell Westbrook and James Harden on the Thunder seemed very tense, just like Guy and the Hound were at the firestation. Montag felt very nervous because of how powerful and frightening the Hound was. Once James Harden left the Thunder for the Rockets, Westbrook has been on a journey to beat him at every chance he gets when he plays Harden. That is just like when the Mechanical Hound is sent to find and kill Montag when he disobeys the law and he kills Beatty.
The dinosaur was the one who attacked, which made it hard for the hunters. This example reveals that Eckels’ self-centered talking caused hurtful consequences for the other men and that saying certain things can impact others immensely. Another example of Eckels’ self-centeredness is after Eckels runs of the path. The action itself is self-centered, but Eckels’ reaction to it is flawed as well. After Travis denies Eckels a ride back to the present age since he ran off the path, Eckels desperately pleads, “‘I’ll pay anything.
“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” This quote by John-Dalberg Acton is a prediction about anyone who will rise to power at some point in their life. It also correlates how many might act just like the pigs in Animal Farm by becoming corrupted with power in one way or another. The pigs had these great ideas, but failed themselves by being too prideful, hypocritical, and greedy. The pigs were always very prideful… bragging and taking credit for everything. They took credit for the windmills even though they did not work on them as it was mainly boxer.
“to get rodeo bulls to buck riders, painful straps are tied around their abdomens to drive the animals to unnatural behavior, according to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.” (is the rodeo ring too cruel). Their is some truth to why animals rights groups feel this way because rodeo is a rough physical sport and if the riders and stock contractors don’t take the right precautions then an animal, contestant, or audience member can get
Royal Dixon argues that lack of feeling in science has made humans ignorant to the features that animals and humans share. His argument contains logic and connects to the reader's emotion to illustrate his ideas. In Dixon’s The Human Side of Animals he uses many persuasion techniques including rhetorical questions, imagery, and examples of various traits of animals. Throughout the passages Dixon uses rhetorical questions to argue the reader’s logic. Questions such as, “Why should we fall into the colossal ignorance of conceit of cataloging every human-like action of animals under the word ‘instinct’?” or “Shall we deny [animals] of all intellect and feeling?” make the reader doubt and challenge their own ideas.
