In the article “Do You Really Want a Baby Tiger?”, the author states “A wild animal is never 100 percent predictable. An animal that has behaved one way for many years cannot suddenly change. Domestication is not something that happens in one or two generations: it takes hundreds or thousands of years (Lewis).” Exotic pets have a specific environment and climate that they are supposed to adapt to instead of living as a caged animal inside of someone’s home. Many may argue that exotic animals should be allowed as pet because people find them controllable when they are immature. According to “Do You Really Want a Baby Tiger?”, “Most people who own exotic pets find them irresistible-and manageable-when they are small (Lewis).” However, soon enough an adorable cub becomes a powerful adult.
One example is that some animals can get a disease called zoochosis and it is shocking what zoos will do when trying to hide it. For instance, “As Dr Keith Lindsay, a biologist with more than 30 years of experience in elephant research and conservation, has said, these are symptoms of “pathological, stereotypical behaviour that is common with disturbed animals in captivity, but which is never seen in the wild”. There are also cases of animals being given antidepressants to hide their unhappiness from visitors. In 2015 Auckland Zoo euthanised a gibbon, Iwani, because he was “severely depressed” and the zoo admitted they could not meet his welfare needs.”(An unnatural environment)This is significant because it shows that when zoos commit wrongs and take problems into their own hands it most often ends up worse.The amount of aquarium animals especially that have behavioral defects is very large and so are the consequences A study made by Captive Animals Protection Society proved that animals living in the water also suffer from this mental detrimention. This study also shows that 90% of the animals in the zoo have gotten this illness.
He has failed to obey the Lacey Act. Walter had hired a guide to help kill the lion. The guide provided information to the law that the lion was killed by Walter Palmer. He says that Cecil was shot by a bow and arrow. After Cecil was shot he was soon returned to America for a trophy after taking him off the premises of
The shadow self archetype represents the traits that one doesn’t like in themselves or even tries to cover up. The shadow self of Pi is especially shown when Pi retells his story toward the end of the book. His story reveals that instead of the tiger eating the hyena, since Pi is revealed as Richard Parker, Pi really killed and ate the french cook. This is quite surprising since Pi is a vegetarian but his will to live and anger at the chef for killing one close to Pi overcomes him. We also see this is a shadow self since Pi used a tiger to describe that part of himself instead of admitting it was him.
He used to shoot doves which are these beautiful animals that symbolize equality but he stopped and he only has shot a rabid danger to society dog that symbolizes racism. It is teaching that stopping an action or thought that can harm can create a positive outcome. In To Kill a Mockingbird, Lee uses natural elements to teach her readers that saying something without thinking can cause a monstrosity and can cause a huge negative effect. Lee use of the fire helps readers learn that racism can spread through a town and destroy it. It was Maycomb first snow in a long time and Miss Maudie's House caught on fire during the night.
Sapolsky Essay on the Moral Question Mahatma Gandhi once said, “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated”. Robert Sapolsky, the author of A Primate’s Memoir, witnessed Game Park Rangers in Kenya dispersing the meat of a zebra that they killed. The game wardens killed the vulnerable zebra illegally only because they wanted the meat. Their reasoning was that they were not receiving a salary from the warden, but instead the warden was keeping the money for himself. The question is, are these game wardens poachers?
The young male lion that carefully trailed Adah and almost killed her is an effective depiction of nature (pg. 139-141). Nature is ruthless, untamed, and does not show any clear opportunity to be contained or trained. It was a near miss for Adah, for had the bushbuck not taken her place, she would have ended up in the belly of a predator. A predator, like Africa itself, is wild and changes everyone’s perspective of it when not visualized, but experienced in reality.
Some argue that the zoo should have simply tranquilized the gorilla but the zoo director said that anesthetic does not work instantly, it could take “a few minutes to 10 minutes” (“Did Harambe the Gorilla…”). That was time the child did not have. The tranquilizer could've just upset Harambe more untuk it worked, putting the toddler in more danger. No one could have known how the situation would have played out so the took immediate action. Witnesses say that the killing of Harambe “seemed necessary under the circumstances in order to save the toddler” (“Did Harambe the Gorilla...”).
Lady Vs. Tiger In the story “ The Lady , or the Tiger?” By Frank R. Stockson there is a semi-barbaric king who’s way of punishing a criminal was by giving him two options which in this case were two doors. He could open either door he pleased in which one of them had a tiger and the other the lady , if he opened the one with the tiger the tiger would immediately eat him but if he got the lady he would have to marry her and make a family. This was actually a fair decision because he had no idea in which door the tiger or the lady was in. The semi-barbaric king had a daughter whom he loved above all humanity the princess was in love with a young man he was handsome and brave she loved him very much . Many may think that in the story “The Lady, or the Tiger?” By Frank R. Stockson the lady came through the door, In fact the tiger was the one that came through the door because the princess hated the lady that was behind the door and she would never let her lover be married to someone whom she hates.
People say that zoos are important for education and are a great way for people to learn about exotic animals (Agnew n.p). Researchers cannot learn as much when animals are captive, you can learn just as much or even more while they are in their natural habitat. While some believe that zoos are important for education, they also believe that zoos are necessary for the survival of species (Zoos n.p). Most zoos claim that they take in extinct and needy animals, most animals at zoos aren’t orphaned, extinct, or injured at all (Zoos n.p). Lastly, one big claim is that zoos help conservation of animals (Borrel n.p).
Also, Pi has to live in a scary environment and my evidence that supports this is he has to live with a 350- pound tiger and he can barely go on the boat because the tiger knows when he is on the boat. The similarities are there both dangerous because has to fight with a mother polar bear and two cubs and Pi can’t really go on the boat because the tiger is always there or the tiger sometimes is watching him. The differences are that Pi has two fight with a lot of bears and Pi has to face with a hungry tiger. In conclusion, Keesh and Pi have to survive in an extreme environment. They both have to survive by using their resources and they both do.
