Animal rights activists argue that it is inhumane to house animals in inadequate habitats and are upset that many species that aren’t considered endangered are being held in zoos around the world. Zoo advocates argue for the conservation and research of endangered species, and thoroughly work to benefit different species and keep them healthy. Both arguments base their reasoning off of varying ideas, animals rights activists address the physical downfalls of animals in captivity, how it is nearly impossible to perfectly recreate an animals natural habitat, and the abuse of animals in captivity. Zoo advocates argue that the conservation and research of endangered species is necessary to keep them from extinction, they fight for humane treatment of animals around the world and work hard to show the real problem in today’s environment. Endearing Emotions As you can imagine, stories of animal abuse and the destruction of natural habitats around the world cultivate a strong emotional foundation that drives many people’s
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.
These laws also established guidelines for establishing the conservation status of species and provided federal oversight over the keeping of rare or endangered animals. Thankfully in the seventies there were laws passed for watching over the endangered species. The only fear now is mating an endangered species with a species that is not the same and not having a pure breed of that animal anymore. The main problem for every animal at the Zoo is abuse and improper care for them, no matter if they are endangered or
Are Zoos Unethical By:Kalynn Deppe An issue that has been hotly debated since the brink of zoos has been whether they are ethical or not. Although some believe that zoos can be beneficial to animals, thousands of research has shown this not to be true. The main reasons zoos are devious is because, there artificial environments are harmful, the animals are more prone to diseases, and it can damage children's views on society. To begin, zoos are unprincipled due to the fact that they take animals out of the wild and place them in synthetic environments that have failed to meet the animals designated standard of living. For example, research has shown that some larger animals need for space is not fulfilled in their confined cages.
If you want to watch something entertaining, watch the people who can bend in half and like to stick swords down their throat. Humans have the obligation to protect animals from such treatments because we wouldn’t want to be treated like that. Just because they aren’t human doesn’t mean we ignore how they feel. Elephants are not a stuffed animal, they have nerves and they can feel the pain that is inflicted on them while being tortured and trained. Honestly, it is very sickening to read how people are more worried about the money than they are about the animals.
Also only about 8% of the experiments show positive results. Although not all animal testing is harmful, it should still not be used because the animals live in terrible conditions, some die from use of the testing products, and the results of the tests are not always accurate. People are constantly being left in the dark about animal testing and the traumatizing living conditions of animals. The cruel individuals that conduct these experiments think they can hide from people too. "Edward Taub was charged with more than a dozen animal cruelty offenses, and was also charged for an especially notorious photo of a monkey in a harness with all four limbs restrained..." (ProCon).
Body One of the advantages of having zoos, is to provide protection to some animals that are endangered. Animals such as the Tiger, Pandas and African Chimpanzees are kept inside zoos in order to preserve their species and prevent them from going extinct. They are well protected from their predators which allows them to breed and, hopefully, repopulate their species in order to keep their species alive. One of the examples is that zoos implemented International Breeding Programs in order to help these endangered species breed. As the numbers of that
Orwell does not enjoy his job at all, and enforces values in which he does not believe in. Because he does not want the Burmese to hate him, George attempts to conform to the wishes of foreign culture, and shoots an elephant against his will. After he kills the elephant, he informs the Burmese he did it because the elephant killed a man. However, in reality, he shoots the elephant because he does not want the Burmese to laugh at him. Orwell wants the Burmese to respect him, and he does this at a sacrifice to his own conscience.
This definitely helped a lot, but still doesn’t fix the problem with predators. Predators are like robbers of their prey’s life. Once one is caught, predators never let go. While some may argue that being in a zoo will affect an animal’s hunting skills, it’s not always the best plan to let endangered animals free in the wild. It stands to reason that society should continue keeping our animals safe from danger in
