In the article, Opinion: Escaped cow sparks personification quandary, the author, Peter Singer, suggests that people use different language when they are speaking to or talking about animals and how this has an affect on how we treat them. According to Singer, “In a similar way, the language we use to describe animals may be important to how to how we think about and treat them. In most legal systems today, animals are treated as property, just like tables and chairs.” By noticing the error and miscommunication of referring to animals, people can realize their wrong doing and change their ways.

However, I feel they are going too far and much too extreme in order to stop farmers and researches from obtaining animals from the wild. Certain groups capture animals whether its farmers, rescuers or hunters. Because of the various groups obtaining animals, there are certain requirements and animal regulations for each group. Farmers usually obtain animals to provide food for the nation, rescuers obtain animals as a means of rescuing them from the cold environment or even from being pets in violent households and lastly, game hunters capture animals for their own personal means. Out of these three categories of people, I feel that the one that animal rights groups should target are the hunters because their hunting of animals does not help human or

People say negative things on the media so if others see it, they believe it’s true and just believe what others think, but in reality it shouldn’t work like that. Humans say things poorly about pitbulls that give them a bad reputation, therefore these dogs end up in animal shelters. “Researchers found that potential pet owners were less likely to take home a dog if shelters called it a pit bull because the breed is negatively perceived and considered less friendly and more aggressive than other breeds,” (Source F). It takes pitbulls almost three times longer to be adopted from animal shelters. A lot of people just believe pits are mean and can hurt you based off of their past.

Although many have mixed feelings about animal testing, it is something that we must address and take seriously, realizing that it is a horrible act upon innocent animals.

Humans cannot explain making life better for themselves by randomly torturing and murdering millions of animals per day to undergo useless laboratory experiments to test products. Animals must be treated according to animal rights this does not include dumping them into cages like trash and torturing them. After all, aren’t we part of the animal kingdom too?

After all of this is said and done can you still support animal testing?
