Introduction An issue that is hotly debated is whether zoos are ethical. Some people think that zoos should not exist, but research shows that zoos are ethical. Zoos give people an opportunity to observe animals that they would not usually see(“Zoo facts and worksheets”). Zoos are proven to be good for many reasons. Zoos are ethical because they provide their animals with a good life, they can save animals, and they are a good place to visit to.
Animals have always played a pivotal role in societies throughout the past. Some communities praise animals, while others use them as a symbol of wealth, and some sectors own animals merely as companions. Throughout the article “The Case Against Pets” Francione and Charlton (2015) argue that animals must not be property, and consequently need to gain basic animal rights. As law professors at Rutgers University, and publishers of a book about animal rights, the author’s viewpoints and research are held credible. Nevertheless, despite their arguments being supported by validated and reliable evidence, both authors are biased towards their viewpoints.
All over the planet, there are different types of animals, and half of the animal species are endangered. Not only that, but some species are almost extinct. But luckily there are some people that are ready to help these creatures. According to “The Stripes Will Survive” by Jacqueline Adams, “The Zoos Go Wild” from No More Dodos, by Nicholas Nirgiotis and Theodore Nirgiotis, and a video called “Behind the Scenes with the National Zoo's Lion Cubs” zoos are the ones that protect animals. All in all, the sources have different and similar ways in supporting that the zoo's role is to protect animals.
Namit Arora in his article On Eating Animals denounces Americans’ everyday obliviousness towards the treatment of animals in slaughterhouses. With an accusatory tone Arora reaches out to meat-eating Americans that aren’t aware of the cruelty present in the meat industry. Furthermore, Arora writes to expose the hypocrisy of Americans who claim to be pro-animal despite their ignorance of the malice and the mistreatment of livestock in slaughterhouses. The context of this piece is the media’s reactions to cows escaping their doom and the modern day indifference of society toward the inhumanity of slaughterhouses. With grotesque imagery
Zoos are Internment Camps Many cruel things happen in zoos. An article from CBS News states that earlier this year in the UK, three Timber Wolves were shot dead by zookeepers because they escaped the zoo. The zookeepers could’ve figured out a safe way to spare those wolves. Zoos are internment camps for animals and need to be shut down.
Should Zoos be Made Illegal? Zoos have been around for hundreds of years, in fact they can be dated back all the way to 1250 BC, when ancient Egyptian records described birds, lions, and giraffes in captivity. Today there are over 10,000 zoos worldwide, entertaining millions with exotic animals behind bars. With species threatened and habitats disappearing worldwide, due to poaching and destruction caused by man, zoos are playing a new role in conservation.
Jonathan Safran Foer’s Eating Animals is a book about persuasion. Foer seeks to convince his readers to take any step in reducing what he believes is the injustice of harming animals. To achieve this, Foer employs many persuasion techniques and often changes his approach when he targets specific groups. His strategies include establishing himself as an ethical authority and appealing to his readers’ emotions, morals, and reason.
Are zoos good? By:Tatum “With the prison walls of every zoo sit tortured souls with empty eyes and broken spirits” Therefore we should ban zoo. Zoos can’t provide the amount of space that a animal have in the wild.
Zoological parks Zoos are nothing new to humans. CBC, a well-known broadcaster corporation for news, reports that zoos have been around since forever, dating back to around 1,500 B.C.E. by Egyptians capturing beasts. Now, zoos have grown and evolved to become more educational to children and to be helpful to the animals by rehabilitating them. Or have they?
These days there are several different animal breeds in zoos for people to look at. They are all over the world, some are in good conditions and the animals are treated well, but then there ´s the ones that are opposite of that. Are these zoos really necessary for the well being of the animals, or is it just cruel capturing them and closing them in much smaller places than what they should have and letting them be abused? Every kind of animal is ready there to just be looked and used as an entertainment in zoos. Some animals have a big environment around them, but what about the animals stuck in the less fortunate countries with little money to support what every breeds requires and needs in order to survive and live a satisfied life?
