Animal Cruelty: The Use of Animals for Entertainment In 2011, Greyhound trainer Robbie Williams was arrested for the deaths of 37 greyhounds (Kitzmiller). They were starved to death just weeks after the racing season was over (Kitzmiller). Due to events like these, people all over the world are wondering if the use of animals for entertainment includes the awful act of animal cruelty. Many may argue that the use of animals for entertainment is ok because it is what the animals were born to do (ProQuest Staff); however,the use of animals for entertainment is not okay and constitutes animal cruelty because the animals are not getting the care they need, and the animals are suffering.

A big issue issue on animal abuse is animal cruelty towards dogs. One crime that still fools people is the puppy mill. There are an estimated 10,000 puppy mills in the U.S. alone each breeding upwards of 200 dogs a year. They trick people in the cruelest way, as they sell sick or vicious puppies to unknowing victims. Puppy mills are terrible for many reasons.
My goal is to help my community by providing the alternatives to solving the matter of the amount of stray dogs while also lowering the kill rate for those dogs that have not been properly treated or adopted. A big part of the problem lies with the lack of government funds for the animal shelters in Puerto Rico. The government only provides $1.5 million in seed funding to create animal services for all 78 municipalities. All the while these animal shelters are filled to capacity, which means the death rate goes up for these “rescued” dogs so only a handful more can be picked up off the streets. There are about two hundred thousand dogs roaming the streets and neighborhoods along the island.
If all of this is going on, imagine how many dogs are getting put to death. Well, I have the answer. This webiste also states that at least 1.2 million innocent dogs are getting put to death, and it needs to stop. This is what being in a puppy mill is like. As you can see they are squished in cages and don 't look well taken care
The solution lies in controlling the population through spaying and neutering. Wolves have been feared, hated, and hunted for hundreds of years in North America. The law to eradicate the wolf was approved by the Obama administration on March 10, 2011, when the administration announced it was lifting the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and protections for gray wolves in eight states in the Northern Rockies and Great Lakes. The United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) stated that hunting was allowed in order to manage the population. Since then, over 3,000
Never Cry Wolf by Farley Mowat is a non-fiction story about naturalist Farley Mowat, on an expedition to find out why so many caribou were being killed. Mowat’s superiors believed that wolves were killing the caribou. He spent almost a year investigating the wolves’ way of life focusing on a small pack made up of two males and a female with her pups. Mowat camped near their den and observed their eating and hunting habits.He observed that wolves rarely ate caribou and when they did, it was the weak and sick ones. Also, with the help of Ootek, a local Eskimo he was able to understand how wolves communicate and hunt, and he saw that these wolves were not a tremendous threat to the caribou.
“Those diseases are REALLY serious. Sixty percent of Golden Retrievers die of cancer.”(Beck). To add to the terrible truth, “An estimated 95 percent of King Charles Spaniels have skulls that are too small for their brains” (roblib). This shows that mutts don’t get genetic diseases as often a purebreds do. This is important because these genetic diseases cause dogs to have shorter life spans and many vet visits.
The Hope Animal Assisted Crisis Response, a national, volunteer-based non-profit crisis response organization, brought specially trained dogs to the base camp at Earl Warren Snowgrounds to provide comfort to humans. The mudslide killed at least 18 residents and damaged homes, including the neighbor of popular TV host Oprah Winfrey, actor Jeff Bridges. TMZ reported that Oprah – whom people are clamoring to run for US president in 2020 after her recent speech – was seen talking to search-and-rescue workers on Saturday in Montecito, including comfort dogs. In a social media post, Oprah wrote, “People not the only heroes in our little community. Met some 4 legged ones too.” Steve Booth, the regional director of Hope AACR Southwest, said that the animals are trained to engage with survivors and different situations as well as different environments and different feels.
D-NUMBER OF VICTIMS United Nations estimates that 5,000 honour killings take place in the world annually. However, this number also may not be accurate because many deaths can also covered.For example, families can force their women to commit suicide and these suicides do not register as honour killings. Additionally, witnesses are not willing to speak up because of the threats and shame; so deaths can be registered as accidents. In Turkey, according the General Directorate of Security report (2005) many honour killings is occurred in region of Marmara. In fact, June 2008 report by Human Rights Directorate says that in Istanbul alone, there is one honour killing every week and over 1.000 were killed during the last five years.
i would rather buy a 10$ ticket instead of spending about 50$ on gas every week and killing animals as i drive.I ask them what will happen when there is no more forest to cut down because they have all been used up?Where will we go after that what will happen where will are animals we use to eat as for example cows and pigs and ect be raised in if there isn 't no more space to raise them big and healthy. What about the roads the ozone layer is braking and if we have more roads more animals will be roadkill and more people will be diagnosed with asthma or similar breathing issues.In the us alone about 190 million cars hit the road and aout 1 million hit and kill animals.”This is counting all vehichles besides off raod ones atvs and snowmobiles, And the animals killed are mammals,birds and reptiles except insects for some reason”-Culture
