For a long time there has been the debate if Zoos, Circuses, and aquariums violate human rights considering that in certain cases they help animals from extinction. While that could be the case we also see that animals are unhappy, mistreated badly, and also they are only there for the sole purpose of human entertainment. On a personal belief I think that they do violate human rights, and they should be shut down. While they can save animals, there is way too much more evidence leaning towards it being bad. Zoos, circuses, and aquariums should be shut down.
Millions of wild animals, including reptiles, large felines, nonhuman primates and others, are kept in private possession in the U.S.” (Born Free USA).

Feral Child Task This task will majorly focus on the lack of social and cognitive development of Genie and its connection with Piaget’s and Erickson’s human psychological development theories. As one of the most well- known feral children in the 20th century, the young girl Genie had been confined to a room, isolated and abused by her parents for over a decade before the rescue. Due to the severely abnormal development occurred in the childhood, Genie’s linguistic ability was nearly undeveloped, her limbs were not fully extended, her development was delayed from various perspectives. Piaget’s theory of cognitive development states four stages of cognitive development. During the first Sensorimotor Stage which Piaget
A young lady named Simone Sneed was diagnosed at the age of thirteen with being bipolar disorder. Simone Sneed thinks it was the emotional tension that caused her to be bipolar. Emotional tension is the way a person deals with the different situation. It is kept on the inside and not shared with other people. This is how mental illness becomes a silent killer.
The third one is that veterinary care centers aren’t always super safe places to work. It is estimated that between 61% and 68% that workers will get at least injured or sick while they are working with the animals, chemicals, and other objects, etc. during their careers. This means that more than one out of two vets will get seriously injured in the line of their work. The fourth interesting fact is the veterinary care industry is mostly only women workers, it is actually estimated that 80% of women work at vets, and only 20% men work at vets.

Even though she was caught many times, she didn’t care, the love she had for her daughter was so strong she would die before she didn’t go see her,she even told Aziza “I’ll come and see you, all the time, I’m your mother; if it kills me I’ll come see you”(315). Tariq made some sacrifices when it came to his mother 's health at the refugee camp. He went to jail for years as a result of trying to smuggle drugs out of Pakistan. He felt the need to even take this risk because his mother had fallen ill during their times in the refugee camps. Considering the harsh times that they had to go through, especially during the winter, he even stooped down to threatening a little boy with a shard of glass in order to obtain his blanket.
However, it is very rare that the circus trainers abide to these guidelines. PETA states, “The USDA cited Ringling for failing to maintain an adequate program of veterinary care for three elephants. The facility’s veterinarians prescribed daily treatments for these elephants, but the treatment logs showed one- to four-day gaps, during which time treatments were not given”(“Ringling Bros. and Barnum &
In addition, many feel circuses should not be allowed to capture wild animals for entertainment purposes because the animal populations are decreasing. According to a study shown, "The Asian elephant, [...], is an endangered species with less than 40,000 remaining worldwide" ("Why World Elephant"). Knowing that there are not a lot of elephants left in the world, circuses continue to capture them and wrongfully care for them. The elephants will not have any chance of coming back from being endangered, especially since the circuses capture them. It is also shown in the study that, "[...] populations have decreased by seventy percent because of human-elephant conflict" ("Why World Elephant").

Wallace writes in a sympathetic way when he connects the feeling of human and other creatures, “The reason it seems extreme to me appears to be that I believe animals are less morally important than human being.”(509) Since people think humans are the wisest creature in this world, the most important thing for humans lives in this world is to enjoy everything. Also, no other animals are as influential as humans is an inherent thought in humans’ brains. However, every life is equal. It is hard to give other creatures labels whether they are or are not morally important enough. Killing animals is a selfish and
The only thing they are responsible for is the genes that made the child born with those traits. The writer for The NY Times Magazine based most of her research on Michael and his family. Their family is a prime example that ineffective parenting is not the cause. His parents noticed that Michael had behavior problems since he was three years old and from then until present had done everything in their power to get him the help he needed. His mother actually had a degree in child psychology so she was frustrated that everything she learned and tried would not work with Michael.
The first correctional facility to be introduced in the United States was the Eastern Penitentiary, and was constructed to hold only a couple hundred inmates at max capacity. Despite arguments discussing a decrease in current prison population, studies have shown that prisons are actually overpopulating and causing safety concerns. Prison population increasing over the years has led to seventeen states holding inmates at max capacity level. For example, Illinois’s prisons are currently holding over 48,000 inmates when their facility’s design capacity was to hold only about 33,000 prisoners (Bureau of Justice Statistics, 2015). There have been many strategies suggesting to lower the population, for example, sending fewer offenders for drug crimes
