The animal is used in research which is meant to benefit human beings. But although it is possible to stop using animals for in research, there is a limited chance of getting animals out of human research activities. Animals are used in research where laws are stating it is unethical to use human subjects. Many people may wonder why laws prohibit the use of human subjects but allow animal subjects. Although different people may argue differently the main reason is what Singer is fighting for which is equality of human lives and animal lives.
When a whale is captured, trainers start to force whales to do stunt. The whales are forced to perform to people for money. According to Richard Bloom, “ Keeping orcas in captivity for human amusement must end. Forcing these intelligent creatures around is not right. ” This stated that forcing whales to do unnatural thing such as flips can be unhealthy for many whales.
Dolphins-World, a foundation whose goal is to raise awareness about dolphin captivity and inform people about dolphins in general, pointed out, “Orcas (Orcinus orca) and large sharks dispute the title of “The most dangerous predator of dolphins,” and is that both, with their size and other physical characteristics and, of course, their natural need to feed on meat, find dolphins attractive.” On the other hand, dolphins thrive in their natural environment and should not be kept in captivity for this reason. Maddalena Bearzi, a photo journalist and blogger, reported to National Geographic, “Dolphins, like some other animals, are essentially complex social mammals that need expansive space to live in. A tank can’t even begin to address these needs…” This data suggests that dolphins are very social animals that use a sizable amount of space and when they are being kept in small tanks, they are suffering from the need for more room to be able to do all the activities they would do in the wild. In one case, human interaction caused two dolphins to be captured illegally and sold to a hotel with a “swim with the dolphins” program. When the hotel no longer wanted them, the two dolphins were left to die in an aged and dirty tank.
First, these animals are dangerous and they can end up attacking their owners. Secondly, these animals are born in the wild, and are meant to remain in the wild because they will have enough exercises, and get the right food. In addition, chimpanzees and tigers are unpredictable and they can end up attacking their owners or anyone near them. Therefore, people should not be allowed to keep exotic animals like chimpanzees or tigers as pets due to the severity of the issues they can cause, and the problems they have with their owners. Therefore, keeping exotic animals should be banned completely because, the number of injuries and diseases reported to be caused by exotic animals are on the rise, and the death tallies are even much
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.
The Norwegian and Japanese positions and arguments to be permitted with the hunting of non-endangered species of whales as a cultural exemption should not be considered. According to the Whale and Dolphin Conservation, “the whaling industry is in decline and the demand for meat is falling” (WDC, n.d.). Given this statement, I would support the ban of whaling worldwide. In addition, it would be difficult and costly to monitor the whaling activity that is taking place in waters where whales frequent. The separation of non-endangered species will not deter whalers from hunting any whale in sight.
do and do not agree with permitting Norwegian and Japanese hunting of the non-endangered species of whales. I do as in I do believe that people should be allowed to hunt whales. I do not agree as in I do not believe that only the Norwegian and Japanese should be allowed to hunt the whales. If some people are allowed to hunt whales all cultures should be allowed to hunt whales. One culture or type of people should not be allowed something another is not.
Giving animals basic human rights is also not a good idea because giving animals human rights would mean not being able to test on animals. Who then will there be to test on. It would be inhumane to test medicines on a human and risk losing a Human 's life rather than losing a animals life. By testing on apes and other animals scientist have found many new cures for a lot of diseases. Taking apes and animals out of labs what would we have
We need to stop animal testing even testing drugs for dog diseases. Animal testing is a sad careless thing that people think they can get away with. Animals deserve better. This does matter, I don’t want animals to die. People need to acknowledge their actions.
However, that line of thinking quickly clashes with the fact that with the help of exactly such testing, with the sacrifice of those animal lives, human lives are saved in return. Who are we to object to the expedition of finding a cure for someone’s son’s or daughter’s illness on the basis that it would be cruel toward some animals, which fact is not up for debate, it is indeed downright monstrous. And if one person had the conviction to deny themselves the cure, what gives them the right to forbid others from using it. In the end the simplest question presents itself, whether testing experimental drugs and treatments on humans is more sane and logical rather than animal testing, and then there is a line which might as well cease progress. A line which demands not to be crossed, the line that demands human lives be handled with caution and care, the line which will cause baby steps instead of strives
