We often find that it is simpler to stay hidden in the dark, rather than step out into the light. As citizens it is our responsibility to call out our leaders if they are not taking notice of what we, the people, want or need. The animals, in Animal Farm, overthrew their farmer and attempted to form a fair government, but soon became dictated to, by the pigs. The book records the evolution of tyranny to totalitarianism which became as terrible as their first situation. In Animal Farm, George Orwell illustrates that it is the responsibility of the citizens to stand up against injustice and inequality.
“Farmers get more money for turkeys with enlarged breasts. They thus breed the animals to be so heavy that their bones cannot support their weight.” This means money is more of a view for the farmers and they do not care much about the entirety of the animal. Illnesses were bad about 90 years ago when this industry started, but they are getting so much worse some of the illnesses these animals have to go through would include forms of cancer, respiratory diseases, heart attacks, and much more. These stresses that we put on the animals are much more than what us humans can say we have ever been threw. Maybe if we considered what we are doing to the animals murder than would things be
Without knowing what the long term consequences are feral ungulates which include pigs, goats and sheep were all brought to Hawaii by foreigners as a food source and some were also brought in for sport hunting. What started as a good intention soon turned into a menace for the Hawaiian Islands as these animals destroyed native plants, threatens the existence of native animals, and lastly threatens the health and welfare. With no predators except for humans, the feral ungulates reproduced at an alarming rate and nothing was put into place to control the populations of these animals. Therefore the population grew and the problems that came with it also became a huge factor in the livelihood of all that inhabits the Hawaiian Islands. Methods to control the population of all feral ungulates need to be put into place to protect the native species of Hawaii which in turn would preserve the traditions and the culture of the Islands.
7 of those are his. He said that he loves rescuing animals, but he doesn’t because they are abandoned, and they have gotten beaten up. All the money he finds in his pocket, or laying around, he puts it in his dog bank, and gives all the money to somebody who needs it most. He wants to continue acting, but he also wants to continue with the Humane Societies. Lou’s dad is beside Lou, to help, and support Lou all the way, and his dad also helps posting the animals online.
To survive in a harsh environment such as Panem, ability to assess risk and make decisions based on possible consequences is needed. Katniss is a very important example to take risking and beyond thinking for survival. She passes through the fences of District 12 in order to hunt to find food for herself and family, despite the fact that it is forbidden to pass the fences and the punishment is death. So she takes a great risk by passing the fences in order to survive. Also many of her relationships are based on profits for survival as she told: "Gale and I were thrown together by
We also need to let others know the conditions that are found at these locations. There are many things as consumers we do not think about and then again maybe we don’t want to know. Many animals today are raised in overcrowded pens with cement floors rather than the ideas that people have of them in fields and plenty of space to roam around. Some farms are so bad that the animals trample on each other to get to either their young that are taken away or to the food and end up dying. The animals that are affected by this are pigs, cows, chickens and even turkeys in some instances.
There is a lot of buzz about the Bee Colony Collapse Disorder which is, according to dictionary.com, a pathological condition which leads to a disappearance of worker bees from the hive resulting in the hive’s failure. The reason I am concerned about this topic is because human survival is tied to bee survival. Bees are responsible for ⅓ of the meals we eat, either by pollinating the fruits and vegetables that humans eat or by pollinating crops that feed animals that we eat, like cows. It is difficult to come up with a solution to this issue because there are many root causes. Bee Colony Collapse Disorder is a bigger problem than most people realize, and if it is not solved, it will have a devastating effect by taking away important food that
Now they are going to build slaughterhouse. Shame on you for doing something like that, sure we needed a ballpark, but not such an extravagant one. There are many people out of work, but honestly, don’t you think we need to protect the animals that are unable to protect themselves?” “Don’t misunderstand what I said. Please, I know how important it is to have a nice ballpark for our kids. Gee whiz, the animals are important.
As the animal rights movement nobly fights to improve the conditions of these living creatures, daily human activities and the moral values of some prolong the acceptance of animal equality. Although people irrefutably need sustenance to survive, humans have developed an unbalanced reliance on creatures like cows and chickens as their main food source. “In the United States, about 35 million cows, 115 million pigs, and 9 trillion birds are killed for food each year” (Vegetarianism). This constant demand for meat illustrates the endless cycle of breeding animals and then slaughtering them. However, many first-world countries hold a surplus of provisions that supplies more than enough to feed their people, making the use of livestock pointless.
Due to animals running around in the wild, scientists and researchers can track the amount of animals being killed everyday. This usually causes extinction within that species, and researchers have decided to do something about it. Although endangered animals are born in the wild, they should be sheltered and protected in nature parks because it helps decrease the amount of extinctions, allows a better and healthier environment, and the animals are protected from predators and human hunters. Endangered animals are to be kept in zoos because it decreases the amount of extinctions. Human activities have affected animals living in the wild dramatically throughout history.
This enables the pet to stay in it’s home instead of being given away because the medical treatment is too expensive. Through the community pet food pantry, The Blue Ridge Humane Society is able to feed around 200 local pets. Many people who has fallen on hard times will surrender their pets to shelters. People can avoid the stress and heartache by receiving food from the pantry. The Blue Ridge Humane Society 's top priority is educating local pet owners on the importance of spaying and neutering.
Now I want to know why I do not have asthma because I 'm always around animals and pollen all the time. When we are working in barns I am around bugs and dust in there too, so now I have a good question to ask my doctor when I see him next. When I read that you can play sports with asthma I thought what if the asthma you have is really bad and you can coughs a lot over it, can you still play? So as I said earlier Flowers for Algernon started this research and I am glad it did because I really liked it. So if I or someone I know get asthma I will be really happy about doing this research because I know how to handle it.
The problem with that is, “our increasing use (and misuse) of antibiotics fuels the evolution and dispersion of antibiotic-resistant bacteria” stated by Jonathan Anomaly. This isn’t an unknown fact, public health experts have been warning factories about the dangers of using large quantities of antibiotics, especially the misuse of it, for many years, and how it creates an ideal environment for bacteria to evolve and spread resistance to antibiotics. Antibiotic resistant bacteria does not stop at livestock; it can spread to human hosts in a variety of ways. Employees on the farm factories can get it from the animals and pass it onto other people, some bacteria can survive in meat even after being cooked and effect those who eat it, also animal waste is used to fertilize crops which can contain bacteria and now can affect those who work with crops or consume them, and finally bacteria can transfer to other animals and streams around the factory (Anomaly). This is an issue that should be prevented from the beginning, instead they don’t take a step towards better treatment.
Slaughterhouses are getting bigger and bigger, thus it is easier for virus and bacteria to pass from one animal to the other through the hand of the workers. FDA and other government agencies do not address the issues because many of the heads of these agencies and other Congress members have ties with food companies. Therefore, the government subsidies unhealthy food while leaves vegetable’s price go off the roof, making it impossible for poor families to eat healthily. Moreover, it is illegal in some states to criticize food corporations, as Oprah Winfrey was sued for criticizing
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.
