Reading any story about an animal being shot is a horrible one. Especially if the animal possesses a peaceful demeanor, such as an elephant. George Orwell’s essay, “Shooting an Elephant” follows exactly what the title says -- a British officer shoots an elephant down. As awful as that sounds, Orwell is actually using his spoken experience as a metaphor. The two dominant characters, the executioner and the elephant, is used to build an argument on the position of an officer under the British imperialism in Burma.
Bill #2 General Debate Pro- I am in strong support of this bill because animal testing is a dated and cruel method. The anatomic, metabolic, and cellular differences between animals and people make animals poor models for human beings.The entire concept of animal testing is based on the fact that the discoveries found when an innocent animal is tested on can be applied to human beings. Thomas Hartung, Professor of evidence-based toxicology at Johns Hopkins University, argues for alternatives to animal testing because "we are not 70 kg rats.” Humane Society International compared a variety of animal tests with their in vitro counterparts. An "unscheduled DNA synthesis" animal test costs $32,000 while the in vitro alternative costs $11,000. A "rat phototoxicity test" costs $11,500, whereas the non-animal equivalent costs $1,300.
Did you know that killer whale kill three people at Sea World? In the video “Should Animals Be Used for Entertainment” and articles “Jump to It” and “The Use of Animals in Entertainment” They both use the rhetorical appeal pathos but also has similarities and differences. The sources are similar because they used the rhetorical appeal of pathos,in the article “The Use of Animals in Entertainment” The author wrote “ These animals include animals that are held and perform tricks in zoo’s shows and circuses, animals that are used as photographic prop tourist and animals used in television and films.” This shows that the people work at zoo’s are putting animals in danger and that the are held as prisoner or forced to be their. For example, “In many cases, the process of obtaining and using animals for entertainment comprises their welfare, depicts them in a humiliating way and could be damaging for entertainment for the conservation of wildlife.” This states that when you take a animals and use it for entertainment that means you are destroying how it asks and eat around you then when they are in their environment. In the video some similarities, for instance “A day after 12,000 lb.
In his essay for that series, Jeff Schloss addressed the question of whether animal death is a natural evil, but also noted that such theological considerations aside, death does not actually “drive evolution” in the way most people imagine—especially when they think of violence in the natural world. This more complicated sense of death’s role is partially the result of modern evolutionary science recognizing the importance of cooperation and inter-relation among species, rather than just direct competition. But just as important is the knowledge that evolution is significantly shaped not by the deaths of individual creatures, but by extinction, the loss of species over time. In this post, we explore some aspects of how extinction acts as both a destructive and creative force in evolutionary history, including the evolutionary history of mammals. 4)all living organism still share the same genetic code ..?
Rory McAuley, a shark expert with the Department of Fisheries, “asserts that the film Jaws is a seminal point for most media responses and the histrionic reporting reinforces popular images of great whites as man-eating predators” (Francis, 44) McAuley also states that “shark attacks do not need this form of hype because people are interested in[shark attacks] anyway.” (Francis, 44) Before the turn of the twentieth century, anything known about sharks was mostly based on “myths and sea lore.” (Francis, 45) Previous to more recent times, people believed sea monsters and serpents were skulking in the unknown depths of the ocean. When swimming became a popular recreational activity, the average swimmer knew or cared very little about sharks. During the 1900s, people in the United States did not believe that sharks attacked people, it was thought that they were harmless. However, in 1916, the people of America were astounded by a twelve day series of shark attacks in New Jersey that killed four people. The New York Times, and other popular newspapers headlined this event.
The Art That Lives The artwork created under the Cobra Movement by far is definitely not the most beautiful or understandable work of art on display in the museums. At first glance, it may even look like doodles created by our siblings when they were younger. Though its essence is not immediately noticeable, sitting there and staring at it the art seems to speak for itself and spills its secrets. The Cobra Movement begun in 1948 Paris in response to World War II and would eventually unite artists from Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam. Cobra artists would use animals as a representation of people’s animalistic instincts and desires.
Animal testing is defined as “the use of non-human animals in research and development projects, especially for purposes of determining the safety of substances such as food or drugs” (“Animal Testing”). Unfortunately, some cosmetic companies treat animals unethically during testing; this brings into question whether or not the practice of animal testing can be considered ethical, or even necessary, in regards to cosmetic purposes. Those with pro-animal testing views may argue that the practice of testing cosmetics on animals is necessary for human safety, however, with modern advances in technology, there are now more options for alternatives than ever before. With support from major companies and governments, alternatives to animal testing could potentially become the standard in the near future. Those who support animal testing argue that animal testing in cosmetics is necessary to ensure that the product is safe for human use.
Researchers of a study performed on wild and captive orangutans write, “…Factors such as improper hygienic situations, improper diet, diseases, obesity, injuries from exhibits, poor adaption to a climate, spread of infections, inbreeding, and social stress might actually increase mortality in captivity”, (De Vries 680). The study described how the modern improvements for zoo animals have only recently matched the average survival rate of wild species. Although this statement is true to some degree, it can also be argued that studies on mental characteristic are not one hundred percent accurate. Another study on assessing the mental health of captive and wild chimpanzees describes the multitude of uncontrollable variables when testing hypothesizes. The testing methods are not catered specifically to nonhuman primates and to other non-vocal species.
Well no, this is the cicle of pain and torture. 75 % of the ainmals are herbivores (тревопасни) ! But why do we try to justify human behaviour on lion behaviour , or shark behaviour ? You have sell phone you have a computer- it is unfair to pick one thing that lions do and you wanna mimic , when you dont wanna mimic enything else they do . In an interview the famous activist Gary Yourofsky is asked the question “Lions kill zebras, and if they don`t they would starve to death.
Also, says it can be a source of national income and experimental field for example, experiments done on rats like replanting organs and in science of anatomy. However, According to Gershoff , some people and organization oppose using animals in medical researches like PETA, which is People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, is one of the well-known organization is strongly against animals experimentation and fight for animals welfare and rights . Also, according to Morgan animals behind fences in zoos and circus suffer from mental health problems because of their captivity even they tried to recreate a similar environment which they were
