In the novel “Fools Crow,” James Welch, the author, expounded on the connections between animals and the Pikunis, a tribe of the Blackfoot people. Likewise, in the novel “Things Fall Apart,” Chinua Achebe, the author, dived into the ibos lives expounding on their connection with their chi which either causes them good or bad fortune. The Pikunis considered the animals as their helpers and believed in partnering up with the animals (one animal per a Pikuni) to garner up their powers and yield to their calling of help in time of these animals’ needs. The Pikunis believed the animals to be their “Animal helpers” since, they had helped this indigenous group of people during wars and crisis by equipping the Pikunis with their powers. Although not as much as in “Fools Crow,” both authors, through the use of magic realism, showed the relationship between White Man’s Dog, the protagonist who was later known as Fools Crow, and his animal helper, the wolverine, and the relationship between Okonkwo and his chi and the benefits of these relationships.
The Federal Building in Oklahoma was bombed and Peg went to schools to comfort kids. (Kehret 174-178) That was hard time for Peg as well instead of talking about books she and the students shared feeling and comforted each other. She cared about animals so much she would write the animal of the month column on animals that have not been loved in a while. (Kehret 136) She cares about animals like one of her own family members. Mrs. Peg Kehret is one of the most caring people I have ever read
Everyone has habits - pattern of behavior that they repeat, sometimes without even being aware that they are repeating them. While most habits are harmless, they can be annoying to either the person preforming them or those closest to them. In this essay, Amy Sutherland attempts to break her husband of his bad habits by employing the same methods used to train animals. While writing a book about exotic animal trainers, Sutherland picked up many techniques to aid in her own training. “What Shamu Taught Me About a Happy Marriage” is a humorous piece that illustrates the fact that humans are just as susceptible to training as animals are.
Pathos is used as an appeal to emotion, often to gain an audience’s investment for a specific purpose. Animal shelter advertisements, car commercials, and even magazines use this method to attract an audience and pull them in by their heartstrings. Rebecca Skloot’s contemporary biography The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is no different, utilizing this method to maintain the audience’s attention and emotional investment in the story. When Zakariyya becomes angry after reflecting upon his mother’s death and how it impacted his life, Deborah embodies her role as a caring sister and shows him in a new light by way of pathos. “Then he walked slowly back to the building, holding the picture in front of him at eye level, seeing nothing ahead but
In Karen Fowlers We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, she questions the reader into asking yourself is it ethical to do experiments on animals. Fowlers use many different ways to show how harmful testing and experimenting can be on animals. But all animal rights and activist’s groups do that, what Fowler does differently from those groups completely changed my view on experimenting with animals, and I think it is the most persuasive argument I have ever read. Fowler introduces Fern who is a chimpanzee as her sister, she doesn’t clarify that Fern is not human until a quarter of the way through the book. She describes her in all truthful ways except for the fact that she is not a human.
It is a non-profit organization that advocates for animal rights. The author appeals to the readers’ emotions by stating the countless torture and experiments that are carried out on the ‘poor, precious’ animals. The author appeals to logos by documenting statistics of animal testings
Jane Goodall, a well-rounded primatologist that is well known for her long-term study of wild chimpanzees in Gombe, once stated, “The least I can do is speak out for those who cannot speak for themselves.” Goodall is known to have embraced her passion for the love of animals through her actions, writings and speeches. Her scientific essay, Hope for Animals and Their World, displays the use of diction to celebrate the importance of the underappreciated insect, the American Burying Beetle, while conveying her perspective that all animals, large and small, are indispensable to our natural world’s ecosystem. Within her argumentative essay, Goodall makes known the importance of the infrequently acknowledged creature, the American Burying Beetle. She
Some of them are baby polar bears and lynxes. Even when the animals are basically taking over the villa she makes sure they are having the best life they can. Another example of how much Antonina loved animals is on page 26. It says, “Jan, a devoted scientist, credited Antonina with a great deal of sympathy when it came to animals: she is so sensitive, she’s almost able to read their minds. She becomes them, a way of observing and understanding animals that is rare, a sixth sense.”I feel that this show how much she cares for animals because she understands them in a way that nobody else can.
Imagine if your beloved pet was given such a bad rep, that your breed of your pet was banned in certain places in the world such as the UK, Germany, Ireland and almost thirty plus other countries. Your pet had always been the one of the sweetest pets that you’ve ever known, yet, a lot of people are against them being in their public area. Catherine Hedges, founder of the non-profit “Don’t Bully My Breed” organization, dedicated to rescuing pit bulls, says, “I’ve always wanted to help the "underdog" and they are a super personable, highly friendly, affectionate and misunderstood breed.” She says that her pit bulls are loving, loyal, and silly dogs. If that is the truth, then why have pit bulls been giving such a bad reputation? Before we get into the current news, the history of the pit bull should be covered first.
