Even though these factors are great, eliminating animal captivity for entertainment purposes is still the best choice for the innocent animals. The most important reason why circuses should not be allowed to capture wild animals for entertainment purposes is because the animals are abused. Around the world, "[...] circus[es] [...] [have] been cited for violating the [...] standards of care set by the United States Animal Welfare [...]" ("11 Facts About"). Studies that are produced have made the horrific treatment of animals hard to ignore. The AWA has cited many circuses for having scraps of metal that can cut the animals, and wood that can easily cause splinters near the animal 's cages.
The Jonathan Foer criticizes the contemporary conventional factory farming, food industry and culture and believes it to violate animal rights and the fact of putting animals into unbearable position at the moment of their slaughtering and their lifestyle, in general is beyond his understanding. But in “Eating Animals” the author does not try to look deeper
Animal Cruelty “One cannot look deeply into the eyes of an animal and not see the same depth, complexity and feeling we humans lay exclusive claims to,” stated Nan Sea Love. Just like what Nan Sea Love said, what is in animals is the same that is in humans, it does not mean it is okay to harm animals. So I ask you, people of Elk County, to prevent animal abuse in our cities. Animal cruelty needs to be explained, prevented, and donations need to be made to local human societies. In the first place, most people are uneducated.
2014. Web. 05 Feb. 2017. American obesity connects to the poor treatment of animals in factory farms. “Many standard practices in animal agribusiness are so cruel that they’re just out of step with mainstream American values about how animals out to be treated,” says Paul Shapiro, vice president of farm animal protection at the Human Society.
Notable plant scientist, Fred Sack, commented that plants cannot be capable of learning because “the word ‘learning’ should be reserved for animals” while this experiment portrayed their adaptation (Pollan). Because of the criticism about the language in Gagliano’s paper, the hypothesis seems to remain unconfirmed. It appears to me no premise substantially disconfirms the conclusion of “Animal-Like Learning in Mimosa Pudica”, only the disagreement among professionals over what constitutes learning, if anything, in sans-brain life forms. Internally coherent, the main flaw of “Animal-Like Learning in Mimosa Pudica” is in the language used to describe the phenomenons witnessed in the experiment, which would compromise it’s external consistency. Gagliano’s research and idea appears fruitful in many aspects.
Did you know that some farm animals are forced to eat so much that they cannot carry their own weight? It is cruel and inhumane treatment, but it is legal to our country. By examining physical changes, speciesism, and animal testing, it is clear that farm animals should have more protection from the government. An examination of these issues will reveal that farm animals suffer needlessly, and more government regulation of these animals is justified. Physical changes to farm animals’ bodies occur frequently in the farm industry and result in unnecessary pain and suffering.
With the lack of proper training and no laws to show credentials, certifications or I.D. tags for emotional support or service animals, anyone can say their animal is a service animal. As a result, this puts the public at risk for harm by a potentially aggressive animal. For this reason, it is imperative for our country to put policies and laws in
The chances of you dieing from captive animals are miniscule compared to those of falling down the stairs. Animal rights activists are known to have made up false claims about “public safety” just to free the animals. “If it is illegal for businesses to advertise and sell products using misleading and fraudulent claims, why is it OK for legislators and lobbyists to introduce, gain public support and pass bills using fraudulent claims they can’t back up with facts?” (REXANO 5). There is a factor most people do not consider when getting any pet (mainly exotic), Disease. It comes in all animals but disease is probably the predominant way that humans are harmed by any animal.
We wouldn’t subject our pets to burning, starving, and isolation, so why is it okay to subject other animals to this cruel treatment? Animal testing is harmful not only because it is unsafe, but because it poses a question of moral judgement. Testing on animals should be illegal because it is unethical, drugs that pass animal tests are not necessarily safe, and many animals lack the protection required for their safety. Many people are unaware of the torture animals in labs must endure when being tested on. The harm animals undergo includes being infected with diseases they would not otherwise be susceptible to, electrocution, and having their spines crushed.
The most plausible answer for why the animals are being tested on is a business wants to make money and if the business cosmetic is unsafe and harms one human then no one is going to want to buy another cosmetic from that business. This could leave a business with no
The natives though didn’t appear to be altering the land, which meant they had no legal rights to it. Thus, settlers were granted the land by the crown, or through trade/buy with the Indians. Through granting of the land with no acknowledgement of prior ownership shows the disregard for the Natives, and the Europeans view of how the land should be used. In order to “improve” the land, much more agriculture and use of livestock would be introduced. With the Europeans introducing livestock to their land, it had crucial ecological consequences.
