I say any zoo is bad for animals. Another example in this article Kids Stand Up for Animals in Captivity from PETA Kids is when the enclosures or cages get too expensive ,so they take some of the toys away,branches, and food. In a couple months they have nothing but concrete and bars while people stare at them. This shows that maybe it makes the animals sad or get so stressed out they sometimes hit the bars,glass, and even the concrete. Lastly they get taken away from their cages and zoo friends into a new zoo.
Imagine you are taken from your home, mother, and environment to a small cage where everybody is looking at you, taking pictures, and having fun. Your owners sell you to a bad zoo where all animals only get food sometimes and the bare cages are cold because your getting too expensive to feed an deven take care of. This is why I take the position that zoos should be banned because they can cause Animal cruelty, Too expensive, and finding new homes. Do you want to do this? Probably not.
2.0 Body Content 2.1 Reduction A way of justifying animal testing is to reduce the number of animals involved in animal testing. In 1970s, 5.5 million of various animals including chimpanzees, dogs, mice, rabbits, monkeys etc. are involve in the medical research field as test subjects for various experiments (PETA, 2014). However, some experiments were not beneficial to the development of the medical field but cost over a million dollar. In the United States of America, 16 billion dollars had been used on animal experimentation- 1.9 million dollars are used on the experimenting on heart diseases on dogs conducted by Ohio State University, 5 million dollars were used on obesity experiments conducted by Oregon National Primate Research Centre, while 16 million dollars were used by Harvard University to fund 1200 individual experiments on drug addiction by using monkeys as test subjects.
For example, they capture animals in the wild so that they can be put in there own zoos. in 2006, a zoo imported 33 monkeys who had been illegally trafficked by poachers in Africa (Smith). This means that animals Are being taken away from there natural habitat just so they can be put in zoos. Additionally, animals are not usually released back into the wild. Animals in zoos are released back into the wild only 26% of the time (Lin).
Although rescue organizations, such as Big Cat Rescue and The Humane Society, are working to address the abuse of these animals, exotic mammals are still mistreated daily. Ethical Perspective: Exotic Pet Owner When it comes down to taking care of an exotic pet, many pet owners will realize this is not an easy task. According to Big Cat Rescue (BCR), one of the most accredited sanctuaries dedicated to housing abused and abandoned big cats, your first year of owning a small to midsize cat can run you about $22,000, with annual expenses being $2,300. If you wanted the full big cat experience, as many do, your first year can cost you $94,000 with an additional $8,000 annual cost. This is a pricey investment, that many owners of exotic pets are not aware of upon purchasing their animals.
Living creatures in captivity develop severe health issues due the fact that space becomes limited and natural habits cannot be mimicked to ensure maximum well-being. An example of this is when The Alaska Zoo was struggling to care for Maggie, a 4 ton elephant under the supervision of many. Because of the weather conditions Alaska contained, she would often camp inside a poor shelter with very little enclosure. Maggie’s treatment team distributed a treadmill that could
On average about 5000 animals are killed in zoos each year, and at least seven people a year are injured in zoo related animal attacks. After reviewing these statistics, we should really sit down and think, are zoos worth the risk? For too long, mankind has held the extraordinary creatures of the earth captive, depriving animals of the life that nature has intended for them. It is time we end this unnecessary practice, so that all animals of the world can live in peace and freedom. As a kid the zoo made an amazing impact on my life.
In 2012 a tiger escaped his enclosure in the Cologne zoo and killed a zookeeper before being shot dead, while another tiger in the Czech Republic escaped and mauled three zookeepers. Bulls, limas, peacocks, gorillas, chimpanzees and in one case two tigers are just some of the animals that have recently made their attempt for freedom by trying to escape. One of the main arguments for the existence of zoos is that they help to protect endangered species. But this is not true. In fact, most animals in zoos aren’t endangered, this is because zoos are almost always attracted to the more “popular” animals meanwhile, they are ignoring smaller animals who actually need protection.
Therefore, many countries have taken part in conserving them by keeping the Penguins captive. This has lead to many moral issues regarding the conservation of Humboldt Penguins. Firstly, the Humboldt Penguin usually spends hours of hunting and swimming in the wild, however in the zoos they cannot swim long distances as the area and length of the pool is very limited. Many experts think that generations of penguins who have lived their lives in zoos will have a different body compared to wild penguins as they do not have the need to swim long distances to catch their prey. Secondly, the Humboldt Penguins are very timid animals, and when put into zoos often the tourists make them even more afraid and shy.
After the bacteria Wolbachia was first discovered in 1924, hundreds of scientists has been studying this organism and it is now known that it infects more than 70% of the insect species in the planet. It lives within the host cells, meaning it is an intracellular endosymbiont. It can be vertically transmitted, by the mother to the egg, or horizontally transmitted, from an organism that is not the parent. The relationship between the Wolbachia and the host may be parasitism, when one member is benefited and another is harmed, or mutualism obligated, when both are benefited by it. In the case of the insects, it is a parasitic relationship.
The Regina Geree’ Foundation for Adoption Agency is respectfully writing to request for support of $10,000, from the Life-Song for Orphans Foundation to support adoption agencies to connect children with families. The Regina Geree’ Foundation’s goal is to find loving families for each child that is waiting to be adopted in the foster care system. We are dedicated solely to finding permanent homes for more than 115,000 children in foster care. Our organization, established in 2012, in Detroit, Michigan, serves children waiting in the foster care system, from infants to young adults. We believe that no child should linger in foster care or leave the system at age 18 without a permanent family of his or her home; every child is adoptable.
In 1910, ethology was known as an independent branch of zoology. Jane Goodall is known for studying the ways of chimpanzees and how they live, making her one of the most famous ethologist. It took her time to become close to the chimpanzees but after a while they were comfortable around her, so one of the key to being an ethologist is to possess strong communication skills. Most Ethologist study in the fields or in the laboratory.
Now there are 61 female employees at the factory out of the 251 that are employed here,” said Dee Ann when asked about changes in the factory over the past 30 years. “There has also been an addition of new silos since I first started.” When Dee Ann first started at Sidney Sugars, she talked about how back then they used to pack and load the sugar by hand. Typically only filling 5-10 lb. bags with sugar and hand loading them into trucks. “Now we have forklifts and
The study consisted of 10 outbreaks which included the most written about in veterinary literature. (http://www.floridahorse.com/EIA.html) From the continuous explosion of EIA this lead to the United States Livestock Sanitary Association currently known as U.S. Animal Health Association in 1965 to create a plan called “Prospectus on Equine Infectious Anemia with Guidelines” to curb EIA from spreading. Later following this plan to help reduce the spread of EIA Dr. Leroy Coggins from Cornell University created the Coggins Test. The Coggins test was the first to be able to accurately help diagnose EIA.
