Puppy mills are a controversial issue that must be outlawed everywhere in the United States for its merciless acts towards dogs. These bitter breeding places should be made illegal for three major reasons. First, these puppies are not given an adequate amount of care. They eventually contract many diseases which are left untreated. Second, many analysis and statistics show that they are located everywhere in an immense amount.
People should not have wild animals as pets. According to “Killer Pets” by Blair Rainsford, “ In 2009, a pet chimp attacked his owner’s friend. He bit off most of the woman’s face. Hundreds of other wild pets have attacked or killed their owners”. This shows how wild pets are dangerous and can attack you at any moment.
Animal testing has abused thousands and thousands of animals. From shattering the hearts of millions of animal lovers, making beagles inhale poison, locking animals in small cages and horrifying the poor innocent things. Here’s the evidence to support that animal testing must stop soon. Heartless scientists put thousands of adorable animals through trauma and pain just for medicines, drugs and much more.

INTRO Cute, cuddly, loving, puppies! Everyone wants a: Cute, cuddly, loving, puppy! Every year, the United states euthanizes 2.7 million adoptable dogs and cats. Why? Well because the shelters are too full and people would rather buy one from a breeder at the mall.
About 6-12 million animals are killed for dissection annually in the US. Some schools use “ethically sourced” animals, including by-products of the food industry, like pigs, or cats that were euthanized in shelters. However, the most commonly used animal used in dissection labs, frogs, are raised specifically to be killed and sent to schools for dissection. Sharks and many varieties of fish that have been captured and killed are also sold biological supply companies for money. (Dissection in the classroom).
Pet Overpopulation/ Animal Abandonment Seven and six tenths of a million animals are abandoned every year. This number is so large because of two main reasons. Pet overpopulation is the fact that there are a growing number of pets and a smaller number of owners. Many experts went as far to say that “There are more pets than responsible owners.”. The cause of Pet overpopulation is animal abandonment.
Invasive species are said to be one of the most expensive problems being faced by the government. This is why people want the government to stop spending billions of dollars on this management, when it could go towards making more jobs for citizens. Monica Dawson, author of Pythons: 8 Facts about the Exotic Pet That 's Ruining the Florida Everglades, wrote, “What most people do not know is that these Burmese pythons can still cost the government money even when they are not removed by employees of the invasive species management program.” Faine Greenwood, The Global Post noted, “ that it costs over $93,992 every year for the feeding for one Burmese python and continued efforts to decrease the overpopulation of the species would greatly lower the
When we visit the zoo, we all thought monkeys and lions are cute animals, taking pictures with them and trying to get their attention. But when you live next to one, you no longer feel the same. Even if they are cubs or infants, you still see them as threats. I am sure some of you are facing the same problem, but that’s not your fault. Right now, Alabama is one of the few states yet to establish a law which requires an owner to obtain a license to possess big cats, monkeys, bears or other exotic animals.
Or they can potentially be very dangerous if they escape or turn on a person, they can also carry very deadly diseases. Despite these being true statements, there are many reported pitbull fatalities and attacks each year, along with rottweilers and other types of large and aggressive dogs. It also begs the question, is it humane to keep any animal in captivity. Or should having pets be banned in general? A very blatant statement for people who disagree with keeping exotic animals as pets is that it is unfair to the animal itself to be kept in captivity and that is very selfish of us as humans to contain such animals.
glish Speech In the year 2000, over 2 million animals were used for animal testing in the UK. Animals used from all over for animal testing that ranges from drugs to our simple everyday shampoo. In the last decade, cosmetic animal testing on innocent animals has become popular practice – and I am talking about how wrong and inhuman this act is.

Then the people released the Burmese python as pets in to the wild of their growth rate. It became a threat to the Florida everglades. Once these python roamed the everglades they destroyed everything. This is why people of the everglades are in so much danger. However, in the meantime of the people letting these pythons a loss in the wild it has become a danger to the ecosystem.
They’re also tolerant of a broad range of environmental and climatic conditions, making them able to occupy many habitats. There are concerns that cane toads are the key factor in the decline of many native species. They endanger native frogs by consuming far more prey than them, approximately 200 food items per night, causing native frogs to need to compete for their food. They also possess highly toxic chemical predator defences which can kill many native predators, such as snakes and lizards that attempt to consume them (The biological effects, including lethal toxic ingestion, caused by Cane Toads). Due to these effects on the environment, a solution to the cane toad issue is urgent.
The animals that spread from the Fertile Crescent spread disease to them first. Many people died, but they were also the first to receive the genetically built in vaccines so they were not as susceptible to diseases. The Incas did not have diseases before the settlers came because the geography around them only had llamas around. They didn’t have any resistances so they were more susceptible to illnesses. When the Africans were being conquered some scholars believe that 20 million people in North Africa in the Middle Ages died.
Powassan virus is far more dangerous than Lyme disease not only because of the severe symptoms; there are no specific treatments or any cures for it. Approximately ten percent of the victims for Powassan disease eventually die. Because there are more dangerous diseases that are spread by ticks, we should be more intentional about preventing tick bites. This can be applied very practically by using insect repellant, avoiding overgrown areas, wearing light colored clothing, dressing with long-sleeved shirts and long pants outdoors, and checking for ticks after going outside. By following these steps, we can do our part to stop Lyme
Warfarin Going to Kill Us Too? Texas Ag Commissioner, Sid Miller, has recently approved the use of Warfarin, a poison, to eradicate hogs. Although this seems like a good idea, it has previously been shown to have detrimental effects on unintended animals, otherwise known as non-target species. Similar types of poison such as Compound 1080 have previously been used in New Zealand, but it had adverse effects. Not only did it poison non-target bird species and mammals, it also poisoned nine invertebrate species.
