They just pet him/her and tell themselves that the next run will go better. In the roping events, the steers or calves will sometimes will be shocked if they are not standing up right and they can’t get them up or if they don’t leave the chute good, but the hot shot is always the last resort and they never want to use it. In the roughstock events, the animals do not get shocked in the chute at all. Source D, “What is rodeo?” says, “Depending on the event, other equipment is designed strictly for the protection of an animal; i.e., skid boots for the back legs of calf roping horses that come to a fast and sliding stop; bell boots on the front leg ankles of barrel horses if the animals over reach with their back legs; a neck rope on a calf roping horse that
The animals are being hurt, mentally and physically. Animals should not be used in dangerous jobs because they are being taken advantage of, and sometimes even abused. Animals are constantly dying due to being forced to partake in experiments, and it is not morally right to use animals in such dangerous situations. The military is using and taking advantage of innocent animals. Groups such as the army use animals, like cats and pigs, to perform medical training on.
That led to problems when poor farmers were threatened by wealthy cattle drivers which were shown in the movie. Ryker, the wealthy cattle driver, abused his status and money to intimidate and wreak havoc upon the homesteaders until they would eventually pack up and leave. Had it not been for Joe standing up to Ryker, and pleading with the other homesteaders in the settlement, they probably would have left to avoid conflict with Ryker, but Joe was not taken down that easily. He wanted to defend his farm under all circumstances, whether that meant killing Wilson and Ryker, and helping his fellow homesteader rebuild when his house was burnt down by Ryker’s
They can feel all of the pain being caused to them, and humans don’t know that pain because we don’t have to go through it, we don’t have to feel it. Or see it. If the consumers saw what was happening to these poor animals, they would think twice about buying the products that test on animals. There are many people standing up and fighting against animal testing, people whom all of us look up to. Paul McCartney is one of those people, and he stands up and fights for these poor animals being used to test chemicals.
Many people invest their time and money in purchasing animals as a pet. It may come as a shock, but PETA also believes that no one should purchase any animal as a pet, and if one does own a pet they should be released. Amanda Radke earned a degree in agricultural communications at the South Dakota State University (“Amanda Radke, Freelance Contributor”). She voiced her opinion on the subject of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals in an article, “PETA Hates Pet Ownership; Kills 1,456 Cats and Dogs in 2015.” Radke states, “It’s no surprise to farmers and ranchers that the extremist animal rights group, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), has a different idea of what constitutes proper animal care.” PETA does not believe in owning any animal as a pet. In order to accomplish this mission PETA euthanizes innocent animals.
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.
Animals have feelings and lives too. “Like people, animals want to live, they also love and feel pain. Animals shouldn’t have to die just because some humans consider hunting to be fun.” (¨There Are Still People¨) Why would we take away a life just to use it as an award, especially since it’s against the law? It illegal to import animal hunting trophies. “Many animals imported as trophies are members of species protected under the Endangered Species Act (ESA), such as leopards and African elephants, the importation of endangered and threatened species is only for scientific research, enhancement of propagation, or survival of the species.
Altogether, these animals are depressed constantly due to the flourishment of the entertainment industries. However, one can make a change to save these innocent animals. From now on, one should not invest even a penny on the circus and their tickets, but instead, spend their money on acrobatic shows performed by humans for example (Cirque du Soleil). Furthermore, if no one invests in the tickets, this would eventually stop the abuse of animals, which would also stop the rate of depressed animals. Since these types of industries would go broke and run out of business, resulting in the release of captivated, and halting the misplace of animals from their natural habitats in the future, giving them the life they were meant to live from the start.
Horses are abused in many cruel ways in equestrian sports. Equestrian sports include horseracing, show jumping, dressage, and competitions that “celebrate” a horse’s breed. These practices supposedly improve performance, but they qualify as animal abuse and cruelty. Abuse in equestrian sports can be anything from soring to drug abuse to racing horses underage. For some reason, the natural beauty of horses is not good enough to many people.
Conducting these experiments only make animals seem like tools used for the progress of humanity, stripping away the factor that they possess the same right to life we abuse every day. Results are not promised, however pain and distress on the animal’s part
