In conclusion Blackfish is gives audiences a shocking, aggressive and deeply compelling look into cruel practices of marine parks for decades that will change the way you look at captive/trained killer whales and other animals. In watching this documentary has significantly opened my eyes regarding the brutal treatment and methods of capturing wild animals giving me a greater sympathy for orcas in parks such as SeaWorld. This startling documentary will surprise audiences as Cowperthwaite is unrelenting in showing the fatal consequences of keeping killer whales in captivity while also critiquing of the cruel and immoral practises of
Tigers are likely to go extinct. After years of saving the tigers, what danger could still exist for these creatures? In the article, “6 Reasons We Should Still Worry About Tigers Survival of The Big Cats in The Wild is Far from Guaranteed,” written by John R. Platt, he informs the reader that even though the number of tigers living in the wild has improved, humans are still threatening the tiger’s existence. All articles have their weak and strong points. This article is no exception as it too shares these two points, strong and weak.
He also learns ranking in the zoo what animal is at the top and which animal is at the bottom his father tells him that the most dangerous animal in the humans who visit and Pi tells us this in the book he says “We commonly say in the trade that the most dangerous animal in the zoo is man”(Martel,31).He learns later in the book that this completely changes when they aren 't in cages. When Pi is on the boat he realizes that in the wild it is the exact opposite in that case humans are not the most dangerous animals it is the large carnivorous animals.In the book he has to fish to feed Richard parker so that he doesn 't eat Pi.PI
Alligators habits Normally, when you stroll in the zoo and you encounter alligators, you can see that they either stay still on the ground, under the heat of the sun or on water and they do this for a long time. Do you ever wonder why? This is because they don’t have a mechanism to control the hotness or coldness of their body. So if they feel the former they dip on the water, if the latter they sunbathe on the ground. Alligators are social animals Alligators like to stay together.
As a kid the zoo made an amazing impact on my life. Getting to see such wonderful animals up close shaped the beauty of how magnificent the world was in many different perspectives. Sadly, in today’s time I don’t view the zoo as a magnificent place, but more of a money guzzling hell for animals. The amount of animal deaths a year are not caused by natural selection, but mainly caused by animals committing self-harm to the other animals or people. A certain case I’d like to shine light upon is Tilikum the SeaWorld killer whale.
Walter Palmer, an American dentist from Minnesota went on a hunting trip to Zimbabwe at the beginning of July. He was found to be responsible for shooting Cecil, a protected lion that was one of the most popular tourist attractions in Zimbabwe's Hwange National Park. Palmer denies knowing that the animal was protected when he killed it, although some people believe otherwise. Despite the fact that the animal was killed in a protected zone, Palmer is not going to face any legal consequences for his actions because his hunting permits were “all in order”. Some people believe that the government of Zimbabwe chose not to prosecute Palmer because “We don't want hunters like Mr. Palmer to come to this country and face prosecution and prison.
To begin with, trophy hunting should not be legal because the animals should be protected. According to the article Africa’s Uneasy Neighbors, “Cecil was in a protected area in a national park in Zimbabwe and was lured.” The text goes to state that Cecil hunt wasn’t a fair hunt. In the text it states, “Waiting was a dentist from Minnesota who paid more than $50,000 for the chance to kill an African lion.” This evidence proves that trophy hunting is very bad and should be illegal. Secondly, trophy hunting should not be legal because it is harmful to endangered species. According to Africa’s Uneasy Neighbors, “Africa has lost up to 60 percent wild animals in the past 40 years.” For another example, “Some guides illegally take hunters to into protected areas or lure the animals out as in a case of Cecil.” This evidence proves that trophy hunting
According to Smith, Patricia“They are passing the border with guns so that it is easier to have a gun in another state.” (7). Also according to Everytown , “Federal law, which applies in all states, requires criminal background checks for all firearm sales and transfers by licensed dealers, but does not require background checks or any process for sales or transfers by unlicensed sellers.” (1). Florida lawmakers have voted to enact new gun control measures, weeks after one of the worst school shootings in US history took place in the state. The Senate narrowly passed a bill that would raise the age to buy a firearm from 18 to 21 and require a three-day waiting period for most weapons. Senators voted 20-18 in favour, after an amendment removed a provision to arm classroom teachers.
Like I said before, dogfighting is illegal in all 50 states but there are many places where it isn’t like Japan, Africa, Russia, and practiced widely in Latin America especially in Argentina and Peru. In America over 9,000 dogs die because of dogfights each year. A shocking case was when a famous football player, Michael Vick was caught dog fighting. He was born and raised in a place where dog fighting was the main sport so he was used to seeing it happen, but nobody thought he would actually participate in one. Michael Vick went to prison for 19 months.
Many plastic bags find their way to the ocean, where they trap fish and strangle larger sea creatures. Governments around the world have attempted to discourage their shoppers from using plastic bags by putting a small tax on them. Kenya went quite a few steps further by introducing a four year prison sentence for the selling and using of plastic bags. Extreme as that punishment may be, discarded plastic bags are now a rare site in Kenya, so expect other countries to follow suit in the coming
