Animal abuse happens way too often, yet not enough people do anything to help make a difference. Another thing that needs to be stopped is the skinning, and the eventual killing of animals. America gets 50% of their fur from China, where cats and dogs are skinned alive against their will, and left to bleed to death. I can’t even begin to imagine how much pain and suffering those poor animals had to go through. No living creature should ever have to endure the pain people inflict on them, and I hope that stronger cruelty laws are placed into action in the near future, and maybe one day the abuse will stop.
We eat meat because that is all we have ever known to do and it is the norm to us. Eating meat is compared to having sex, that is how common it has become. People have been raised thinking its okay to kill animals just to eat them. Have you thought about ethics while eating meat or do you just eat
There is much controversy on whether the slaughtering of horses should be allowed or not because the entire process that they go through is so bad and petrifying to the point where being dead is the best option that they can possibly have (Horse Slaughter-Wikipedia). Even though horse meat is in high demand for human consumption, it is inhuman because slaughterhouses use
They won’t be killed if the markets where they are traded are dried up. A lot of animals are also sacrificed each year for the sole purpose of religious sentiments. Another area where animal rights are next to negligible are the animal slaughters. There are punishments for organised crimes, murders etc all over the globe, but the right to a free life for any animal is also necessary and can’t be jumped upon. I have left the slaughterhouses to the end part of the introductory information because this is the most important part of animal welfare.
The immoral sides of hunting meat and meat consumption have not always come along with the original reasons of killing animals, the original reasons for killing animals were for food, clothing, and shelter. The first humans to begin killing animals did so for the sole purpose of a need basis, they used every part of the animal, from the meat for food to the skin for clothing and shelter, as well as everything down to the bones for sewing needles and structure in homes and shoes. Even after civilizations were resurrected the whole animal was still being put to good use, in the 18th and 19th centuries things like whale bones were even being used for women’s corsets. Starting in the 19th century the increase of hunting animals for personal game became more popular and that is when the question of morals arose. The issue is not the ethics in eating meat, but in the way the meat chosen is made available for consumer
“Why are violence and the sacred so intertwined? Why is death seen as necessary to renew life?” —Micheal Wood From the grotesque brutality of the Aztecs to the inhumane slaying by the celtics; ritualistic human sacrifice has been practiced throughout history. Various cultures use society sanctioned killings for reasons such as to appease a higher power, predicting the future and up holding superstition. Sacrifice is best exemplified in Shirley Jackson’s short essay, “The Lottery” in which each year a community stones a fellow citizen in attempts to assure healthy crops. The motives behind ritualistic killings are described in the article “The practice of Human Sacrifice” by Dr. Mike Parker-Pearson.
Imagine if this were to happen in a slaughterhouse. In a hypothetical situation, humans only want to eat drumsticks at KFC, so we cut off the legs of a chicken, and leave it in a cage to bleed out. This would definitely be deemed as illegal based on the regulations of many countries on slaughterhouses. Besides, sharks are not farmed animals, but part of the marine ecosystem - so many of them are being killed and their overall species are being threatened with endangerment. A staggering 143 (more than 55%) of shark species are almost extinct, including the whale shark and
Slaughterhouses houses should close down, because even kosher slaughterhouses are inhumane. Agriprocessors is the largest kosher slaughterhouse, and they disregard both Jewish and federal law. Agriprocessors has had 300 instances of inhumane killing in 2004 Local pride slaughterhouse keeps animals alive for up to two minutes after their throats are slit. Local pride workers rips animals throats open with a meat hook, in order to make the process faster. The idea behind Kosher slaughterhouses is to not use stunning, and quickly kill animals by cutting their throats.
According to the animal research: the ethics of animal experimentation that was published in July the sixtieth 2010,some people argue that experimentation with animals should end because it is wrong to treat animals merely as tools for further knowledge while others ague that animal are better target as opposed to using human beings. However, I think there is nothing wrong with experimenting with animals because; most of the animals are killed for meat, leather and for various ceremonies in some traditions. Some animals are also killed due to lack of
In my own opinion animals are equally precious and should equally share God’s earth as humans instead of being caged like they are in jail. How would feel if you were locked in a cage for the rest of your life? How would you feel if you were always on exhibition? Animals should not be not be caged. They should be in the wilderness with their families.
