Today the term euthanasia is used to give reason to the murders of innocent animals all over the world. Animals should only be put down by euthanasia if they are in pain or suffering. Unfortunately, most dogs that are euthanized over the course of the year are not aggressive or suffering from any disease (The Humane Society of the United States). Most of the animals are euthanized due to overpopulation in animal shelters. Euthanasia is a cruel and unnecessary practice that is not in the best interest for the animal.
You don’t consider the entire organism, it’s too difficult to associate trotters as pig ankles; an ox-tail as part of an ox. Even hung bodies of sheep and cowsresemble little more than filaments of fat, muscle and bone; inanimate and lifeless like the cold steel knife that maims it. Cut up and prepared for our consumption, it is easy to distance yourself from the notion that your beef, mutton and venison were once cow, sheep and deer.

Meat plant workers just put any scraps in a can and call it "chicken" or "beef". This is very wrong. The meat gets mixed in huge vats, if a worker falls in, guess what. There body gets mixed with the food and gets shipped off to stores. If meat falls on the floor, they don 't through it away.
These damages that are inflicted on their workers can be critical, life-changing or even lethal. Mr. Sinclair’s book provided more distressing news of the terrible practices in this industry taught to the workers so that more meat can be distributed for profit. “He wrote that workers would process dead, injured, and diseased animals after regular hours when no meat inspectors were around” (“Upton Sinclair’s”). Meatpacking industries provides more meat for their customers purely for profit. This causes the industry to be influenced to sell its meat, no matter the condition it is in.
When Papa John finished inspection he said none of us were ready to be picked yet and he’d wait another week and see if any improvements happened and if there was he’ll pick a cow. At this point Shaun didn’t know what to do really cause you really can’t improve your coordination so he came up with this plan to sneak into the slaughter house without anyone seeing him go in. He would need some help though trying to get into the slaughter house. “Hmmm who would help an ugly cow like me get into a slaughter house……. Wait I got it Bronze can help me out since he owes me anyways,” and just like that Shaun trotted off to the stables to go see his acquaintance.
If animals had voices we could hear them shouting for help and agonizing from despair . Some of our day to day routines are one of the main causes that result in injuring many animals either directly or indirectly. Although people might not intend to hurt them, it is done due to lack of knowledge or lack of what called “the truth ” .Animal Cruelty is one of the many uprising problems which result in large amounts of species extinction either by getting shot for entertainment ,practicing hobbies such as fishing or wearing their skin as luxury jackets and shoes or throwing waste from companies ,sailing ships or human waste in water poisoned marine and inhaling chemical polluted air that are not suitable for them according to Marian
Obviously, it affects the animals themselves, because they are the ones being treated badly. For example, with animal testing, the poor animals are being tortured to death to make sure HUMANS don’t get cancer, birth defects, etc. The fact that people think it is okay to put these possibly harmful chemicals into innocent living creatures is ridiculous! “Humane Society International estimates that 100,000–200,000 animals suffer and die every year due to cosmetic testing. In these tests, the animals have chemicals forced down their throats, into their eyes and onto their shaved skin in order to document their reaction to ensure the safe use for humans” (Zuazua 2017).
Chickens in these situations spend the clear majority of their lives confined in metal cages (Sorenson, 2010, p.42). “Barley able to move, they cannot exercise, and constant egg production drains calcium; osteoporosis is widespread” (Sorenson, 2010, p.42). Weakened, crowded, and overworked, hens are considered done egg production at the age of six weeks: after this, they are brutally killed through a variety of methods including bulldozing, electrocution and beating (Sorenson, 2010, p.44). Chickens raised for meat, called broiler chickens, are genetically modified to be unnaturally enormous in size, as well as having a dramatically shortened lifespan to about 7 weeks (Sorenson, 2010, p. 45). Another aspect of brutality towards chickens is males: since they do not produce eggs and are not used for meat, roosters are brutally killed largely via suffocation: “thrown into plastic bags and crushed or suffocated” (Mason & Finelli, 2014, p.107).
Why must you be a Carnivore? Pity on the lives of those poor animals and become Vegan. If not, i’m willing to compromise. I have never met anyone like you, as cliché as it sounds, you’ve brought back life into me that I thought was dead. Just swear you love me and i’ll try some grilled meat.
SUMMARY: Andrew Hudgins’s poem, “The Cow,” describes the life cycle of a farm cow from a boy’s perspective. In the beginning, the boy expresses his true love for the cow because she pulls his cart and provides the family with rich milk. Then as the cow grows old and too weak to milk, the boy explains in detail how to slaughter the cow and dispose of her innards. Lastly, the boy reveals that he remembers six other cows that have suffered the same fate and he rejoices in how delicious the steak is, especially when slathered in butter. As the love for the cow shifts from beloved pet to useless animal, Hudgin emphasizes the change between true love and materialistic love.
Most people would say it bothers them more to hear of a puppy being torched than to hear of a pig being torched; but why is this? I had never really thought much about animal rights before. But after reading “Puppies, Pigs, and People” by Norcross, I now look at the way we get factory processed meat differently. People need to be more informed of where the meat they are buying and consuming is coming from.
