This is when an owner does not provide food, water, shelter or veterinary care. This can lead to death of an animal or health issues (“Animal Cruelty Facts and Stats” 2-3). This is one of the most common types of abuse that no one is really aware of. From neglect, this can cause animal suffering. The pain of animals starts when they have untreated illnesses or wounds.
However some laws aren’t enforced enough and animals are still being abused. Wild animals held in captivity and away from their natural habitat is abuse all in itself. Forcing wild animals to perform tricks and constantly travel takes that animal abuse to a new level. Although many circuses have already been prohibited from using animals, some circuses choose to do so. Due to the abuse wild animals automatically suffer from being in captivity along with further abuse from performing in a circus, circuses should have harsher laws banning them from using animals in their performances.
Should non endangered animals be in zoos because they are not have right care? Non endangered animals should not be in a zoo because they do live in zoos, they are stressed out in a zoo, and they do not have a lot of space in the enclosure The first reason that the animals are stressed out on how they do not have enough space. Researchers found that the animals are stressed out about how they are stressed out about how they have every little space in the enclosure admittedly the zookeepers said they are stressed out about how they have very little space. However zoo’s never fixed the space in the zoo for the animals so they should ABsolutely make the enclosure. For example “how the animals are all sad not every happy when people go to the zoo they do not like it” Danielle Pucillo The Current, Nova Southeastern University, Fort Lauderdale FL.
In addition, physical punishment has always been the “ideal” training method for animals performing in circuses. Animals constantly get shocked, beaten and whipped to make them perform. Furthermore, in circuses they believe that animals are soulless, their feelings are not to be taken into consideration, and they don’t learn or understand but through the trail of fear and violence. According to Ringling Bros, “They believe that if they can keep these animals afraid, they
The Animals Don 't. .” Paws, Helping People Help Animals ,). Animals are by nature wild animals, meaning they want to be free, and live their life, but they can’t when they are locked in cages. Circuses cause catastrophes, these animals are malnourished, and very lonely causing them to lash out, and so much more. They cause catastrophes as shown in a incident that happened in 2013.
They are living things; they have every right to live their lives in their natural habitat as all of us do. However, most of their lives are spent in confinement. Confinement has harmful psychological effects on animals. In a lot of cases, animals are seen to repeatedly sway and pace. Their mentality as a living thing are questioned, their brains aren’t working as well as they should, they are in such torture and torment that they can’t even think straight or have a peace of mind.
On the other hand, some people argue that animals should be kept in zoos but put yourself in their shoes, how would you like it if you got taken from your habitat and family and got put in a cage, locked up where all you do is stare back into the eyes watching your every move. Zoo animals are big, exotic and beautiful but what many forget is that they are still wild. Wild animals are called “wild” animals for a reason. If wild animals
CHAPTER 2 ANIMAL ABUSE IN EXPERIMENTS Using animals in research and to test the safety of products is a very huge issue for decades. People have different feelings for animals; many look upon animals as companions while others view animals as a means for advancing medical techniques or furthering experimental research. Individuals perceive animals, the fact remains that animals are being exploited by research facilities and cosmetics companies all across the country and all around the world. Although humans often benefit from successful animal research, the pain, the suffering, and the deaths of animals are not worth the possible human benefits. Animals' rights are violated when they are used in research.
This terrible abuse happens often in these smaller zoos. The handlers aren’t actually educated in the way they should with how to treat them. People aren’t doing anything about it because they decide they just want to go and have fun watching them and then leave with no after thought. Do these creatures deserve this kind of manhandling and suffering in their life with no consequences for the humans that commit this crime? This kind of abuse also happens in the way that they don’t get treatment with their health, whether it’ a wound, infection or if they are underweight.
Did you know that Seaworld’s parking lots are bigger than the areas where they keep their whales? This and other examples are why animals should not be held in captivity. Animals should not be held in captivity because of the inhumane treatment, lack of education for kids, and loss of freedom. The first reason why animals should not be held in captivity is because of the inhumane treatment. In many zoos, animals are forced to live in prison-like cages for a large portion of their lives and are deprived of food.
