Is skipping that ten-minute drive to the shelter really worth putting a pet in that bad of a situation? These animals are starving, dehydrated, lonely, and sometimes even injured or hunted by another animal that wants to eat them. A quote on Pinterest says,”Life on a chain is no life at all. If you don’t want them in your home, you shouldn't have them.” This quote is trying to say that
Zoos, aquariums and circus violate animal rights and should be shut down Humans have an insatiable hunger for watching animals. Every year, millions of people go zoos, aquariums and circus on to enjoy watching kinds of animals. According to Encarta ( 2003), humans maintained big collections of the animal from the past until now. They were not zoos in this sense. Typically, these ancient collections were not exhibited in public parks, or they were maintained for other purposes.
For example in kids stand up to zoos in captivity states animals are getting too expensive to feed so the zookeeper's just wait for somebody to notice and sell them to another zoo. This shows that having too much animals can harm the animals and make them starve to death and even the whole zoo. Some even sell them to another zoo even if there is family or friends. Now you might say this is a good thing selling them to have a better home, but is it really a better home or is it a bad zoo who needs animals to get visitors. I say any zoo is bad for animals.
Over the last 30 years during journeys across the world 2.5 million have died due to the harsh conditions that these animals have had to endure on the ship. Australia is world leader in export of beef, dairy cattle, sheep and goats. Then I thought why do we have to have live exports, why can’t we kill them ethically over here in Australia and export the meat. I discovered the reason that we don’t do this and we put them on a crowded and unhygienic ship is because some countries have reasons (e.g. religious) to not stun the animals before slitting their throat and letting them bleed.
Living creatures in captivity develop severe health issues due the fact that space becomes limited and natural habits cannot be mimicked to ensure maximum well-being. An example of this is when The Alaska Zoo was struggling to care for Maggie, a 4 ton elephant under the supervision of many. Because of the weather conditions Alaska contained, she would often camp inside a poor shelter with very little enclosure. Maggie’s treatment team distributed a treadmill that could
In addition, circus animals put human lives at risk and are abused on a daily basis. Although supporters of circuses argue that circus animals receive necessary veterinary care, many circus animals die due to neglect each and every year. Defenders of circuses claim that “Under federal regulations, sick elephants must get prompt medical care and a veterinarian's okay before performing” (Nelson). Supporters of circuses dont see the harm of using circus elephants because there are laws that enforce circuses to give sick elephants veterinary care. However, it is very rare that the circus trainers abide to these guidelines.
Countless lives locked away in cages and forgotten about have overwhelmed our society, it has left blood stains on our history as a species and if history has taught us anything, it’s that we have a choice to change our ways of adjusting to situations. A war which was fought in means of ending such criminal acts, yet we as human beings do little to nothing to end the terrible crimes of animal deaths in shelters. Between these problems lies a terrible truth, nearly every year, almost eight million cats and dogs have been placed in shelters around the world. Out of these very large numbers, half will be euthanized. That equals to one animal being put down every 8 seconds.
When the narrator heard the news about an elephant going wild and destroying most of the Burmese homes, he rushed to find the elephant and shoot it. During his journey, he told himself that he would not shoot the elephant. But when he arrived face to face with the large mammal, with thousands of people watching, he shot it multiple times until the elephant fell. Minutes later, he came back with a different weapon brutally killing the elephant. Throughout “Shooting An Elephant” , Orwell’s narrative style brings out internal and external conflicts that are relatable in society today.
Over 6,000,000 dogs and cats were killed on US roads last year. Shocking? Your heart crushes when you hear that number about your fur babies that are at home. Well, each year 100 million animals die from animal testing each year. If you hate so much that animals are dying on the roads by accident, why can’t we do something about animals that are dying in the hands of our people?
In 10%of zoos, animals are been torchered and abused till the extent it is life taking. The animals who live in zoos are kept in enclosures that don’t allow them to live their lives in a natural way. Zoo animals live in the same enclosure day after day monotonous. This needs to be dealt with or animals will be known for zoos to be their natural habitat in the future. Just think about the number of animals that were in the wilderness years ago and view the number today.
This shows it is dangerous to transport these animals. Many deaths of elephants occur in the circuses. Ringling Bros. was charged with violations of the Animal Welfare Act after the circus forced Kenny, a three year old elephant, to perform even thought the animal was obviously sick. A veterinarian checking on the elephants that same day said he “should remain in the barn,” an hour after Kenny’s last performance, he passed away. Circus owners care about fame and fortune, not about the health of the
Valleys where elephants used to roam are now littered with the bodies of those murdered by hunters— their tusks and leather skin are no match against the deadly rifles and traps. Elephant poachers all throughout the continent have contributed largely to the diminishment of the elephant population, resulting in conservation
