The poem suggests that this is a result of the hatred of humans and the easiest way to “feed they lion” and make “they lion grow”(Levine 5). It gives off the a tone to the reader that there is war or that there once was war. Levine’s word usage is what gives the poem its unfortunate tone right from the start. Rather than choosing softer language, he starts his poem with words a phrases like “acids of rage” (Levine 3) and
Scarecrow and Lion had the different goals and triggers, yet they found the same person who could help them to achieve their goals. Firstly, The Scarecrow had a different goal from the Lion. The Scarecrow was sticking on the cornfield and his goal was getting a brain (Baum, 2013, pp. 16-18). While the Scarecrow needed a brain, Lion who was an enormous beast in the wilderness likewise had one goal.

Unlike describing the slaves as helpless, mindless livestock, he portrays the slaveholders as predators, usually lions. One example is when his master died, so all of his property had to be collected and divided between his children. Douglass became the property his late master’s daughter, Lucretia, and she sent him back to Baltimore; with a sigh of relief, he exclaims, “I escaped a fate worse than lion’s jaws” (41). The lion’s jaw does not directly represent Lucretia, but a slave plantation as a whole, which Douglass had never before labored on. He mentions slavery as a whole again as being a dangerous place of animals when he escapes north; he notes, “I felt like one who had escaped a den of hungry lions” (92).
In Africa, a village of the name Sankuyo earned $600,000 from the 120 animals that were allowed to be victims of trophy hunting(Onishi). Without trophy hunting, there will not be as much money owned by these African villages and the villages will slowly decline to poverty. To add to this argument, lions have been seen entering the villages, where the ban has been placed, to find food because they would normally eat the elephant carcusses left by trophy hunters. The people of these villages are claiming to be poisoning those animals who trespass in order to save their own crops. Are humans really that much more important than these innocent animals?
The title “A Lifeline for Lions” does relate to the passage, as they share the concept of saving the lives of many lions. The passage is focused on project Life Lion, a project that started when a national park in Africa started having various animals, especially lions, suffer from distemper. Thousands of animals passed away because of the distemper outbreak. The title focused on the passage in a whole and way similar to a thesis statement. Overall, the passage and the title were both very relevant and
Take that mom and dad! You many think it would be very hard to become an owner of an exotic pet, but turns out it can be easier them getting a dog or a cat. In the article, Wild Obsession, Lauren Slater states “privately owning exotic animals is currently permitted in a handful of states with essentially no restrictions: You must have a licence to own a dog, but you are free to purchase a lion or baboon and keep it as a pet.” due to this lack of registration on exotic animals we have no idea how many are currently in the United States. Slater mentions that there are at least five thousand tigers here in the United States. While some do
Despite the fact that the hunting of tigers is extremely illegal, poachers still risk it because of how much money they can make. One tiger split into all of its different parts can sell for over $70,000 on the black market. This is mostly because many tiger parts are believed to have miraculous medicinal uses in traditional remedies, even though science has proved otherwise. People also use tiger parts as symbols of strength, from a tiger pelt as a rug to a necklace strung with tiger teeth and claws. Nearly every tiger part has some sort of spiritual use in Chinese culture, and a lot of people are willing to break the law for their traditions.
People may think that keeping wild animals such as lions as pets is exciting, yet it has proven to not be the case. A lion is a dangerous species that is used to life in the wild, where they get the chance to hunt their own food and prey on other animals; it is a natural instinct. Therefore, holding animals captives in homes of a restricted area and treating them like a domesticated cat or dog poses a threat on the individuals within that household. For example, during 2015, a circus trainer was attacked by the lion she has trained in front of masses of people in Egypt (News.com.au). Thus, one can see that even though an animal such as s lion is trained, fed, and taken care of, the fact that they will be obedient and safe cannot be guaranteed.
In her article, “All’s Not Well in Land of ‘The Lion King’”, Margaret Lazarus tells of the time she took her children to see “The Lion King”. Throughout her essay she explains what she thought of the movie and how it affected her. She explains how the animals in the pridelands are paying tribute to the “infant son that will someday be their king”. Margaret sees them basically as lion food and that they all live together in “supposed harmony in the ‘circle of life’”. She goes on to explain how outside the kingdom there’s a dark gloomy and impoverished elephant graveyard full of hyenas that she feels are stereotyped as African Americans.
The three main elements are the hunt, pets and the danger to the Florida everglades. Meanwhile, people have had these carnivores as pets.
