Workers kicked, threw and hauled dogs; lifted puppies by their throats. A former supervisor and three former employees of the laboratory were charged on felony cruelty. This brought people to realize the issue and concern of animal safety and the torturous ways animals are being killed and tested on today. In strong belief, animal testing should without a doubt be banned. To begin with, animals have as much of a right not to be tested on as humans do.
In order to accomplish this mission PETA euthanizes innocent animals. Radke also states, “While ranchers tend to their stock… PETA employees are busy euthanizing healthy animals.” In agriculture, farmers and ranchers raise livestock, such as pigs and cows, and they could also own dogs and horses as pets. Agriculture is defined as the practice of cultivating plants and heading animals for food, fiber, and other products (Jokisch). If the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals were to accomplish their mission it would not only affect the raising of livestock, but the feces of these animals is also a rich source of nutrients for the production of their crops. Also, it will affect these farmers’ and ranchers’ source of
The two sides are not willing to understand one another’s view. Trophy hunters, recreational hunters, and anti-hunting activists possess diverging views about killing animals. To start, trophy hunters are viewed as killing animals for their own benefit or the thrill of the chase, but these hunters help countries benefit. Numerous trophy hunters will travel to exotic location to harvest animals of their choosing. One reason individuals justify trophy hunting is because they spend a hefty sum of money killing animals.
As Albert Einstein once stated “The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.” Animal cruelty is the infliction of animals by humans. In other words animal cruelty is when humans disrespect animals in the act of hoarding, mills, dog fighting, slaughter, etc. Over the years Animal cruelty is similar in inflicts but different in laws , this is shown through the book Oliver twist (the Victorian era) compared to facts of now. The Similarities between the Victorian era and now include what people do to animals. For example in the Victorian era Sikes fought his dog “This resistance only infuriated Mr. Sikes the more; who, dropping on his knees, began to assail the animal most furiously.
There are many reasons why a person is cruel to an animal, those include: the person was mistreated as a child and that is the only way they know how to treat living things, they simply want to mistreat the animal, they do not know that they are hurting the animal and do not see it as a problem (“PAWS - People Helping Animals.” The Animal Abuse). Animal cruelty is not just something that happens in homes but also occurs in many other places including food industries, makeup industries, labs, and the entertainment industry. The abuse happens everywhere. The organization named People Helping Animals is an organization that helps animals that are being abused, but it also brings attention to the fact that people that abuse animals are likely to abuse humans and are in need of mental treatment. Animal cruelty is an issue that affects animals that are constantly mistreated, but there are organizations, such as the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), that help by saving animals from abusive homes and get them the help
Sargent 1 Harley Sargent Ms. Clements English 1301 12:00 9/25/17 Animal Rights Animal rights activists believe in giving the life of an animal the same importance as a human’s life. Animal welfare accepts that animals have interests but allow those interests to be traded away as long as the people benefit from the sacrifice. In contrast, animal rights theories say that animals, like humans, cannot be sacrificed or traded to benefit individuals and their needs. Animals should not have the same rights as humans because they were not put on this earth to serve as equals they were put here for us to benefit from. Animal activist want to state their opinion on how farm animals are mistreated but do not witness this abuse first hand, or they just hear it through the grapevine and believe what they hear.
To just kill someone you love. It’s almost like murdering your closest friend or your family member. It is cruel, just cruel to animals. It is killing a large amount of animals, and not just wild ones, scientists even kill dogs, hamsters, and other house pets too! One of the reasons animals should not be tested on is because there are tons of animals suffering and gasping for air from scientists giving animals drugs, just to see if the drug worked.
(Ed). Animal Experimentation, San Diego: Green haven Press Inc., 2000) Some of the tests conducted on rabbits include eye irritancy tests, acute toxicity tests (LD50), and skin irritancy tests. as well as other effects but one of the main effects that sometimes is the spark of the extinction of a whole specie which is the killing of wild animals for it’s fur, as said by (Haugen, David ,2000)meat or just for joy which actually results in a huge decrease in a lot of species because they can 't reproduce new babies for that specie for example the White Lion Specie , it had large amounts of white lion but due to a lot of hunting by people on them, they are now found in south Africa but with a risk of being extinct and the panda as well and that’s because we can 't provide that animal the suitable environment neither it’s food resulting in a huge amount of them to die .All of those problems and effects that resulted from animal cruelty will definitely someday affect us weather in diseases or in decrease of food or pollution of water just like what we did to other
Exploitation is an act or action that is selfish and will only bring benefit to the exploiter. Animal exploitation is being practiced all over the world. Animals are being beaten and mistreated. Countless numbers of animals are dying each year because of the cold-hearted people who do not treat them right. “Of 1,880 cruelty cases reported in the media in 2007: 64.5% (1,212) involved dogs, 18% (337) involved cats, and 25% (470) involved other animals”.
For us hunters, hunting is a way of life. But for some people, they don't like the fact that killing animals for good purposes is ok. When we shoot or trap an animal, we do it for sport. We do it so we can keep the populations of the animals we harvest down to avoid spreading disease, costing farmers more money from loss of crops, deer/ car collisions (which would cause our insurance to go up), and overpopulation of specific animals. Here are some of the examples of overpopulation.
