Animals have feelings and lives too. “Like people, animals want to live, they also love and feel pain. Animals shouldn’t have to die just because some humans consider hunting to be fun.” (¨There Are Still People¨) Why would we take away a life just to use it as an award, especially since it’s against the law? It illegal to import animal hunting trophies. “Many animals imported as trophies are members of species protected under the Endangered Species Act (ESA), such as leopards and African elephants, the importation of endangered and threatened species is only for scientific research, enhancement of propagation, or survival of the species.
If the world today gave up hunting, wildlife would become non existent and animals would struggle to thrive due to disease and overpopulation. Outdoorsmen also gain plentiful amount of experience while hunting. They gain relationships, knowledge of the outdoors, and they maintain an old tradition and keep it alive and thriving. In the future hunting may become an even more pressing and controversial subject; however, we must do everything in our power to keep hunting alive. Hunting has a deeper meaning to some people and to take that away from them is in some ways inhumane.
This shows that zoos will sell their animals to their death to gain business. Therefore, animals should be left in the wild and not sold for profit. In addition to this, an article by Medium states that “these programs also breed a surplus of exotic animals that may too often be sold at auction, animals which have ended up at “canned hunt” farms here in the U.S. where canned hunts are legal” (What Happens to Surplus Zoo Animals, Medium).

In his essay for that series, Jeff Schloss addressed the question of whether animal death is a natural evil, but also noted that such theological considerations aside, death does not actually “drive evolution” in the way most people imagine—especially when they think of violence in the natural world. This more complicated sense of death’s role is partially the result of modern evolutionary science recognizing the importance of cooperation and inter-relation among species, rather than just direct competition. But just as important is the knowledge that evolution is significantly shaped not by the deaths of individual creatures, but by extinction, the loss of species over time. In this post, we explore some aspects of how extinction acts as both a destructive and creative force in evolutionary history, including the evolutionary history of mammals. 4)all living organism still share the same genetic code ..?
It is important to monitor these systems carefully to prevent the entry of any diseases, by closing the herd to a new animal entering and introducing new genes only through the use of semen. Herd closure can greatly reduce the risk of disease, but requires a portion of the herd dedicated toward generation of internal replacements, with increasing the degree of inbreeding in the herd over time. The genetic selection scheme improves numerous terminal traits including feed efficiency, carcass measures, growth performance and maternal traits such as milking ability, litter size and litter survivability. Genetic improvement accelerated through the use of AI and by selecting sire traits enables widespread and efficient distribution of economically
Besides, scientists need to consider the fact that animals need to be sheltered, fed and cared for to keep them alive. According to Murnaghan (2016), some companies breed and sell animals for the purpose of animal testing. Other than that, animal testing is done repeatedly to create an average for the purpose of accuracy. Since animal testing may happen more than once, additional cost may incurred. Therefore, besides losing more animals, we also lose an enormous amount of money on animal
Zoos may not be the perfect solution, but watching animals disappear is not the right answer either. Future generations, perhaps, will be more resourceful than us, and find better solutions. With hope, they will foster global collaboration and species management plans, hence reducing the demand for endangered animals and their products. Furthermore, connecting with nature so that it becomes a valuable part of our lives. You may ask yourself: why not let them go extinct?
If the Amur Leopards go extinct another species of animal will go extinct due to human activity like poaching, destruction of habitat, and pollution. Without the Amur Leopard some animals could be overpopulated causing an unbalanced ecosystem which then affects the people because they will have to step in to stop the growth. by believing in a cause like this people would be able to help the Amur Leopard with public awareness. Lately the Amur Leopard has been gaining popularity with organizations that will help it regain population. Have you ever heard of Albert Schweitzer?
An animal in captivity is fed on a regular daily schedule, causing them to lose their ability to hunt for prey, because that is not a valid option for them. Many zoos and nature programs have supervised breeding programs, as referenced in the text of “The Impact of Animal Protection”. Unlike the wild where the animals have the ability to choose their own mates, the animals in captivity have forced breeding like some people in different countries have arranged marriages. Meanwhile, the animals do live safely and are protected from hunters and poachers, but despite this, animal species would probably be better off if people “protect them in zoos for a short period of time and release them back into their natural habitat while they still are wild animals”, as referenced in the text of “Do Animals Lose in Zoos?”. Zoos in many ways are much like a prison.
A lot of people think that zoos are good because they help repopulate, but no one thought that the only reason why we need to repopulate some species, was because of poaching and hunting. If people never had poaching and hunting, most animals are capable out there in the wild. On the other hand, Zoos have research programs that help expand our knowledge about animals, especially the endangered species. The information gained by these programs can help protect and treat the species in the wild, as well as determine what effects if any climate change may have on the regions needed for the species to flourish. Many zoos also have breeding programs for all kinds of species, endangered or not, and learn even more about the species during the breeding, and rearing process.
