In the article Zoos The Historical Debate it states, “Red Pandas died after ingesting rat poison.I can 't imagine how they found the rat poison. Also it states, , “Azavark have limited diet that zoos have a hard time fulfilling.” If they don 't have the right food don 't bring in these animals. And if that was not enough, the article continues to say “Zebras At the National Zoo Washington DC.starved to death because of insufficient or incorrect food”. This means the zookeepers are not trained well that means animals don 't
Millions of animals are abused and left to die a long exhausting death each year. Many people don’t know that the cosmetic products they own are tested to see if the products are safe for humans. In the process of the testing animals are tested using harmful chemicals that often burn the animal’s skins and the ruthless workers leaving them to die a long painful death. Animal testing is inhumane and should be banned. Animal testing kills and tortures millions of animals each year.
Over 100 million animals are used each year to test new chemicals and drugs for proper human use and consumption. Although alternatives like vitro methods (testing on human cell and tissue) and silico models (computer-modeling techniques) have been introduced, the government still preferably uses animal experimentation - this needs to end. Animal testing should be stopped because it’s expensive, unreliable, and unethical. Imagine how many lives could be saved if we took appropriate measures against this injustice. 16 billion American tax dollars are funded each year toward animal experimentation.
But they are just killing and making the animals fear everyone. About 5000 healthy animals are put down at zoos if they don't cooperate or if they do something wrong. In other words, zoos are the biggest nightmare for animals. Zoos have kept many secrets from everyone, which is very scary. In fact the scariest thing is that people die in zoos when they are trying to perform a show for others, animals are put down or abused at zoos, but most importantly animals are taken away from their homes.
Close genetic animals are heavily regulated to be experimented on. A sleeping pill called “thalidomide, which caused 10,000 babies to be born with severe deformities” happened to be tested and approved for distribution (ProCon, 3). Animal testing does not ensure safety for humans. Animal testing consists of “63 alternative test methods [that] have now been accepted by regulatory authorities” stating the solution of ending animal testing (Stokes, 2). The continuation of animal testing could be harmful to advancements in science.
Are Zoos Unethical By:Kalynn Deppe An issue that has been hotly debated since the brink of zoos has been whether they are ethical or not. Although some believe that zoos can be beneficial to animals, thousands of research has shown this not to be true. The main reasons zoos are devious is because, there artificial environments are harmful, the animals are more prone to diseases, and it can damage children's views on society. To begin, zoos are unprincipled due to the fact that they take animals out of the wild and place them in synthetic environments that have failed to meet the animals designated standard of living. For example, research has shown that some larger animals need for space is not fulfilled in their confined cages.
“Nine out of ten drugs that pass animal studies fails in humans” (Moore 2). Many patients in the world of medicine need drugs with low risk factors. Animal experiment is becoming a thing of the past and for good reasons. The experiments are no longer answering the scientists questions, but when the products does work on animals it is never going to be hundred percent for humans. Animal experimentation is wrong because animals can register pain just like humans, the medication is not reliable, and money is lost when it is ineffective.
All of these companies are just a fraction of companies that test their products on animals such as mice, rabbits, primates, cats, and dogs. Yes even man’s best friend isn’t exempt from being injected with drugs and diseases in the name of science. These companies have continued their evil in the dark, in countries with little to no regulation on animal testing. The only way to stop these companies from experimenting on and abusing animals is to show them that they no longer operate in the shadows, but their wrongdoings are on display for the world to see, and that the world does not like what it sees. We must patronize companies with principles, and encourage others to follow.
First, each year more than 100 million animals are killed in U.S laboratories for biology lessons, medical training, curiosity-driven experimentation, chemical, drug, food, and cosmetics testing. Before their deaths,some are forced to inhale toxic fumes, others are immobilized in restraint devices for hours. Some have holes drilled into their skulls and others have their skin burned off or their spinal cords crushed .
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.
Animal testing has always been a controversial and emotive topic. Each year, millions of innocent animals suffer and die in cruel chemical, drug, food, and cosmetics tests, as well as in biology lessons, medical training exercises, and curiosity-driven medical experiments at universities (“PETA Makes Its Case Against Animal Testing” 3). Think of any drug, cosmetic or household cleaner. Chances are, at one time or another, an animal suffered in order to put that product on the shelf. As many as 800 animals are sometimes tested, experts note, before a drug is determined to be safe enough to proceed to a clinical trial (“Animal Testing” 2).
Animal experimentation is extremely cruel, unnecessary and unreliable. Animals are kept in very small cages and are drugged so that they cooperate. They are kept in dark facilities and wait for their death or to be tortured by humans. Animals have feelings like humans, they can feel pain, sadness, depression and loneliness. Most of them animals have never been outside laboratories.
The closest body structure we have to the human body is an animal, so it is logical to keep testing on animals, considering the fact that scientists have been doing so for years. If animal testing was to be banned then all scientists can really use is human cells, but over the years it hasn’t been proven to help find cures as much as animals already do. Human cells can be useful but don’t allow scientists to get a test on the central nervous system, endocrine system, and immune system, those being the humans most important parts of the body, where in animals they can. In fact, there are a variety of animals that are considered to be like humans. Such as, elephants, chimps, monkeys, dolphins and even octopuses.
In many cases the people in the lab many times lack experience and training they need to avoid animal suffering. Some animal testing uses restraining devices to keep the animals from moving. Experimenters at a few major United States colleges have all done stress experiments on rats and mice. These experiments included immobilizing mice and rats, shocking their feet, hanging them by their tails, and even forcing them to avoid drowning. Researchers claimed these test were relevant to human anxiety depression.
The Animal Welfare Act protects animals in research, however, it only provides minimal protection for certain species excluding mice, rats, and birds. That means only 10 percent of the animals tested on are actually covered by the AWA. Unfortunately cold blooded animals, as well as animals breed for agricultural purposes do not fall under this protection. A big issue right now is cosmetic and common household products being
