Abnormal behaviors can arise from stress, disease, boredom, pain, fear or injury. Keepers should be familiar with their normal behaviors and look for signs of any changes. Changes include facial expressions, postures, vocalizations and lack of interest should take into account. One of the biggest environmental factors that can influence such behaviors would be space. All non-human primates are habituated to exist in an atmosphere that is open and with the freedom to swing from branch to branch.
Animals are living creatures that have feelings just like a human being. Animals are not like us on the physical part, but that doesn’t mean that we have the right to kill, hurt or even experiment with them. If you ever had a pet or knew someone related to you who had a pet, they’d probably always be talking about how kind, sweet, beautiful, and lovely their animals are. Animal are even used to test products such as Shampoos, perfumes and cosmetics. Those products aren’t like the ones we use, they have different types of chemicals and they try them on the animals to see if it will affect us.
In Jeremy Rifkin’s article, “A Change of Heart about Animals”, proves his statement that many of our fellow creatures also “feel pain, suffer and experience stress, affection, excitement and even love..”. I agree that animals share similar feelings as us, and I believe that they should be treated in a way that they can feel comfortable and care in their surroundings. Just because animals may not be completely the same as us, that should not give the right to a human to mistreat and abuse of an animal’s life. Animals can be well treated and cared for without giving them the right to be treated as a human. In Victoria
This also connects back to what Seed mentions in his book that humans associated language with life and it being a characteristic of human nature. If we find something to connect us with someone or something, we can feel more comfortable with our
“Clearly animals know more than we think, and think a great deal more than we know.”- Irene M. Pepperberg. This quote shows that animals are smarter than we think and know more than we think they know. In the two poems “A Blessing” and “Predators”, there are many ways that they are similar and different. Both stories have the same author’s style, setting and animals as characters, and a human and animal connection. But, the stories are different because of the poetic structure, tame or wild animals, and simple of sophisticated diction.
Mistreating animals as if one does not care for them is the same as mistreating humans. By mistreating poor doubtless animals it affects them and can sometimes lead into suffering stress. If humans are able to protect each other from harm, then why cannot animals do the same thing by having rights? This question is usefully asked for those who try to protect the rights of animals. In the article Of Primates and Personhood the author Ed Yong, a science journalist, contends, “I feel we should extend rights to a wide range of nonhuman animals… ‘all creatures that can feel pain should have a basic moral status’” (5).
Some research shows that many animals including birds, frogs, monkeys, and dogs all have similar organized brains. A dog’s brain organization doesn’t just have to do with paw preference, it can also affect a dog’s tail wagging. Movements of a dog are biased to the right or left depending upon
A variety of historical, philosophical and theological traditions have contributed to the way animals are treated in a society both tacitly and explicitly. This research paper shall explore how animals are treated in Gulliver’s Travels written by Jonathan Swift and Heidi written by Johanna Spyri with regard to language, literature and human/animal gaze, given that animals are excluded from discussions of language and power as they are not, themselves, participants in their own social construction through language. This research paper will also engage with the fact that how language is at the center of this generative process as language plays a critical role in shaping the very thought it purports to express. Language does not merely describe; it constitutes meaning and fundamentally shapes human experience. In illuminating the full capacity of how language shapes the domain of animality, I will shed light on the very question of what it is to be a human being.
In contrast, animals have sensitive souls which have the power of sensation, locomotion and some sort of self-preservation, as well as containing the functions of the vegetative soul. For Aristotle, there is a hiearchy in forms of souls. All higher forms of soul also contain the powers of the lower forms. Finally, there is the rational soul, belonging to humans, which has the ability to conceptualize. The rational soul is intrinsically tied to the body, which differentiates Aristotle 's idea of soul from that of the Atomists and many moderns who disconnect body and soul.
