In the beginning of Norcross, Alastair introduces an analogy. The analogy consists of two premises and a conclusion. The first of the premises looks into the story of Fred. Fred was in an auto accident and he damaged his Godiva gland. Therefore, he decided to torture puppies in order to produce cocoamone. Cocoamone is the hormone that lets people enjoy the taste of chocolate. In the second premise, Norcross discusses about the situation of the animals raised in farms. How could they be different from the torture of puppies by Fred? He looks further into the situation by giving similarities between the two premises. Norcross examines the stress filled lives of the animals in farms. He suggests that these animals are confined, cramped, and
This is why I think factory farming should be banned for all the safety hazards and the animal abuse towards those pigs. If we replaced all those factory farms with family farms where the cattle or pigs can run around and play until they get butchered instead of sitting in pins all there life and getting trampled to death. They also have to live in there own feces, and the ventilation system isn’t the best. Where on a family farm the animals would be able to run around without getting trampled to death, or having to live in there own feces. Would you like
Group Collaboration Introduction: Therefore,exotic pets should be banned in the United States because exotic pets mess up the wildlife, exotic pets are dangerous, and exotic pets are not fit be be in a household. The exotic animals are very dangerous to be around in either a home or the wild. They ruin the wildlife by eating the other food, destroying homes, and killing other animals. The animals should not in in homes because they are bad for humans.
Life for animals in a factory farm is inhumane. Some of the equipment used on factory farms are “battery cages- they used to confine poultry that can be stacked in rows and columns. Most battery cages measure between forty-eight and sixty-eight square inches and are too small for birds to spread their wings”(Factory Farming: An Overview from Sally Driscoll and David
The gestational crates that some farmers use are very abusive. The pigs get open wounds from them and can get sick. Due to the cages, the pigs tend to rub and bang against the cages, causing open wounds and sores that can easily get infected. Because the cages are so small and tight pigs have to lay in their own poop. Laying and smelling the feces all the time causes respiratory problems according to an HSUS investigator.(Humane Society of the US) This is obvious that this is not right, and is harmful.
Slap, whip, abuse. This is what comes to mind when people think of when it comes to livestock. This assumption is misleading and inaccurate because this is only showing the bad side to what actually goes on. The livestock industry is viewed as immoral and inhumane but in reality, we do so much more good than bad but the truth is being kept away. In the industry we care for the livestock, we provide for whatever they need, and simply, it’s a lifestyle.
Countless lives locked away in cages and forgotten about have overwhelmed our society, it has left blood stains on our history as a species and if history has taught us anything, it’s that we have a choice to change our ways of adjusting to situations. A war which was fought in means of ending such criminal acts, yet we as human beings do little to nothing to end the terrible crimes of animal deaths in shelters. Between these problems lies a terrible truth, nearly every year, almost eight million cats and dogs have been placed in shelters around the world. Out of these very large numbers, half will be euthanized. That equals to one animal being put down every 8 seconds. Animals that are not adopted are kept in shelters until they find a home.
Imagine sitting on the bleachers cheering on the jockeys and their horses, but, multiple red flags are being set off. Thoroughbreds collapse on the ground from exhaustion and jockeys begin whipping the horses. This is no sport, this is a death run.
Some of the most disapproved items in the U.S. are gestation crates. Some argue gestation crates help, others disagree. Are gestation crates really necessary to our farming techniques? In factory farming, gestational crates are used on sows (female pigs) to stop movement as birth is given to piglets (baby pigs), making sows like prisoners, causing many major issues. Gestational crates do not belong in factory farming because gestation crates are inhumane to pigs, cause disapproval of companies, and cause bad medical conditions.
In Colorado there is a wild horse and burro program for wild horses to roam across rural
Thousands of horses get slaughtered each year-and are bought and sold.They are put into trailers upon trailers of horses and are holding hundreds of horses that,are a total of eight U.S. slaughterhouses most common on is canada and are trucked across the border or even shipped overseas to China.There isn’t a high demand of horse meat in the United States But the horses are sold for good money in the United States to be slaughter bound.Horses are bought for slaughtered are a price range from 100 to 500 dollars. They can not be slaughter right when you buy them the horses have to be in someone’s possession for 6 months before they cross the border to Canada or any other place to go for the fact of disease.Which is why the meat is sold to exported countries like China,And to European countries because they get more money for the horses than they do in the United States.
Today, there are more American wild horses being held captured in facilities than currently in the wild. Since the 19th century, the number of wild horses free in the West have declined by 98%. The practices of removing American horses off public lands is decimating their numbers and raising taxpayer costs by $80,000,000 every fiscal year. Thousands of wild horses every year are being herded by helicopters and vehicles into holding pens. The ones who survive separation from their families, substandard veterinary care or handler abuse are stockpiled until they’re sold
Farrowing Crates are a very popular topic with many animal right groups. They claim that farrowing crates keep the sow in a much too small pen that restricts movement. It has been described as a “Torture Device.” According to an animal rights group, farrowing crates are used to take up less space so the farm can have more pigs, which provides more profit. They also say that since the sow is in this crate, she is not able to have contact with her babies. According to Tom Philpott, sows are forced into these crates during their entire pregnancy where it is so small they cannot even lie down. He also says that they are forced to sit in their own urine and feces. Philpott states in an article that
In conclusion, factories should not use gestation crates. Gestational crates are inhumane, unhealthy, and make bacteria stronger. Group housing is also cheaper than gestation crates in the long run. Now with all these supporting facts, no factory should ever use gestation crates. Now is the time to be think about the food you buy and where it comes from, simply not buying from factories that teach animals this way would make them
Temple Grandin is an innovator that is unique from most innovators in a variety of ways. She has accomplished and created her inventions all while living with autism. She is considered one of the world’s most success and accomplished autistic individuals. Her first invention was when she was 18 years old and studying at Franklin Pierce College. When she was a child, she constantly needed deep pressure to calm herself down. To achieve this pressure point, she would squeeze herself under couch cushions or tightly wrap herself in blankets. People were never able to give her the right amount of pressure, because their squeeze was either too much or not enough. She found herself pulling away from people’s hugs because it was too overwhelming and
