Putting down these animals is inhumane, yet for the wildlife’s safety and the feral cats’ own, it is imperative for their populations to decline. In order to do so, the cats must be dealt with humanely. There are over 100 million feral cats in the world, 60 million living in the U.S. These cats aren’t strays-- but they aren’t lost either. These cats were born away from human civilization, out into the wilderness.
Another reason why Charlestown was difficult to settle was because he of Native Americans and other tribes launching attacks against the European natives so it was difficult for the European settlers to settle the land because there were Native Americans running on there land and attacking them on their land and of killing most of them like the small pox diseases and other things wernt killing enough of their people. And there were other attacks from the animals there attacks from lions , tigers and other animals that could be very scary to people and it wasn't very safe for the settlers to come out and night and try to look and gather food for their tribes and find supplies for things they needed. As well as the Native Americans and other tribes would be argueing and wanting the same land as the European settlers had and that caused conflict between the European settlers and the Native Americans so fights broke out and it caused a lot of disasters between the settlers and the
In my opinion as well as Yolanda Guse, a local reporter, think that McDonald’s is only delaying their move to stop using battery cages, and this is just to make more money as they don't have to care for the chickens as much as they would need to if they were free range chickens. The battery cage chickens that escape are left to walk around on the ground covered in other chickens waste, and breath in the harmful gasses that are related from the waste that often cause respiratory diseases that 80% of the time leads to death . these chickens have no chance to live in these conditions but some manage to survive the torture just to encounter even more
Lastly, goats, deer and pigs all came to Hawaii because humans brought them. Many native plants are extinct or endangered because of humans, or effects of humans. For example, some reason humans drove these plants to extinction or endangerment is deforestation, urbanization and over-harvesting. Deforestation is when humans clear, or cut down a large area of trees. Urbanization is turning an area of land into a city or town.
Because of the overpopulation, animal control must step in. They at times, forcefully snatch up these beings, and load them into trucks. Those dogs and cats, then get taken to shelters. Not all animal shelters have pristine condition. Sometimes animal shelters exhibit themselves as a malodorous, dirty, and unsettling environment for animals to inhabit.
Animals that go to slaughter houses see misery long before arriving. Animals lay in their own manure while on the farm and are vulnerable to many diseases due to the lack of health care they receive. Many of these animals are not properly cleaned before being slaughtered. One former slaughterhouse employee states, “One of the real problems is that animals have spent their lives lying in their manure, are smeared and caked with the stuff, and they’re entering the food plant” (Pollan). One other slaughterhouse worker also said, “During the evisceration of the animal, the manure can get on the meat.
With the introduction of European domesticated livestock; honeybees, pigs, horses, mules, sheep, and cattle and the domesticated plants; wheat, barley, rye, oats, grasses, and grapevines there was also the introduction of pathogens, weeds, and rats. Because of the lack of labor force and the vast lands the colonists would fence in their smaller crops to reduce the amount of work leaving their livestock to freely roam around the land. This caused feral herds and the destruction of the environment that the natives relied on for survival. These animals would eat or destroy the Native Americans crops because unlike the Europeans they did not fence in their crops, if the Native Americans killed and ate the animals that ruined their crops the Europeans would want compensation for them killing their property. “By a mix of design and accident, the newcomers triggered a cascade of processes that alienated the land, literally and figuratively, from its indigenous people.” (Taylor, American Colonies,
Did you know that wild animals have been abused and have killed people as pets? Animals are abused and mistreated every day and deserve better treatment. They are usually trapped in cage with nowhere else to go, and feel depressed and miserable, but there are also good owners. Exotic animals are too amazing to be trapped in a cage and be someone's pet. These exotic animals can be really dangerous and harmful to people.
The majority of the amount of animals that are killed in the wild are because of hunters. Humans usually kill these animals for accessories such as fur, meat, and other body parts. Creatures in the wild are almost always being hunted, whether it’s by a predator or a hunter. Law enforcers have tried to eliminate the amount of hunters by not allowing road building or hunting in certain areas. This definitely helped a lot, but still doesn’t fix the problem with predators.
Many animals are abused everyday. Chickens and other farm animals are constantly being killed for food. In this article, “PETA Making a Social Noise: A Perspective on Shock Advertising,” Jonathan Matusitz and Maya Forrester focus on the fact that PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) often goes too far with their advertisements. Animal rights groups such as PETA use shock advertising as a means of getting the message that abusing animals, eating animals, or using animals in entertainment is wrong (Matusitz and Forrester). Matusitz and Forrester look to expose PETA’s indecent advertisements, but the argument relies too heavily on pathos than any other rhetorical appeal.
Group 1: How might the ungulates introduced to Hawaii affect the habitats of native birds? Ungulates, which included cattle, goats, pigs, sheep and horses, are seen to cause devastation of native plants and forests that are the native birds’ habitats. Also, majority of the bird species living in the main island are being restricted to live only on 2 forests because of the decrease in forests; however, due to the feral cattle that eat through native forests, they are threatening the native forest birds and their habitats. Pigs and goats are also seen to cause a serious damage by feeding on native tree ferns and young trees, destroying the woods in which the birds nest. Pigs also consumed fruits of introduced plants, helping the alien species
