Those products aren’t like the ones we use, they have different types of chemicals and they try them on the animals to see if it will affect us. Animals testing should not occur because killing an animal is not helping us It’s messing up the world. Animals aren’t something that we could manipulate they are living creatures that have feelings just like us. Humans wouldn’t like to be in cages or laboratories right? Animal testing is cruel because scientists do many horrible tests on the animals.
United States is a free country where there are rights for the citizens, so whoever owns these animals it is their concern. The commentary about owning wild animals says in line 22-25, “If we have the freedom to choose what car to buy, where to live, why should not we have the same freedom to choose what species of exotic animal to own and to love.” This is true because everyone should not be held back from owning exotic animals if they can do all of the other things dangerous in life. Cars, people, domestic animals, and wild animals all have injured or killed innocent bystanders before. Only the wild, or exotic, animals
is a ridiculous idea because they are unable to reciprocate these rights onto others, due of their lack in rational thought. We, as a society, are unable to teach primates to go against their natural instincts, you cannot, for example, teach an animal not to hunt for survival or kill for protection. Furthermore, the advantages gained from captivity of primates, for research and educational purposes, are extensive. If we were to give primates basic human rights, we would have to release them from confinement under all circumstance, including zoos, sanctuaries, and laboratories. Animal testing and research has lead to many great discoveries, including treatments for AIDs and cancer, it is a huge factor of how we got to be as advanced of a society as we are today.
Animal rights activists argue that it is inhumane to house animals in inadequate habitats and are upset that many species that aren’t considered endangered are being held in zoos around the world. Zoo advocates argue for the conservation and research of endangered species, and thoroughly work to benefit different species and keep them healthy. Both arguments base their reasoning off of varying ideas, animals rights activists address the physical downfalls of animals in captivity, how it is nearly impossible to perfectly recreate an animals natural habitat, and the abuse of animals in captivity. Zoo advocates argue that the conservation and research of endangered species is necessary to keep them from extinction, they fight for humane treatment of animals around the world and work hard to show the real problem in today’s environment. Endearing Emotions As you can imagine, stories of animal abuse and the destruction of natural habitats around the world cultivate a strong emotional foundation that drives many people’s
The Animal Bill of Rights is meant to prevent the exploitation of animals and refute the justification that experimentation makes animal cruelty moral. Humans are ones who exploited animals, so humans have an obligation to free them from the unnecessary pain caused by exploiting them. Because of their lack of ability to defend themselves against human evil, the Animal Bill of Rights grants animals to be protected and
Zoos and aquariums are institutions that capture live animals and keep them in cages or large enclosures for public exhibition. To this day, zoos and aquariums are not banned, but that has not stopped people from fighting for the freedom and rights of animals. The debate between whether zoos and aquariums should banned or not has become an ongoing issue and still is today. Although zoos and aquariums do contribute to the economy, they should be banned because animals in captivity suffer from starvation and health issues, often die prematurely, and can easily cause harm to people due to be kept in confined areas. Many people argue that zoos and aquariums are beneficial because they contribute a great amount of income to the economy.
Are Zoos Unethical By:Kalynn Deppe An issue that has been hotly debated since the brink of zoos has been whether they are ethical or not. Although some believe that zoos can be beneficial to animals, thousands of research has shown this not to be true. The main reasons zoos are devious is because, there artificial environments are harmful, the animals are more prone to diseases, and it can damage children's views on society. To begin, zoos are unprincipled due to the fact that they take animals out of the wild and place them in synthetic environments that have failed to meet the animals designated standard of living. For example, research has shown that some larger animals need for space is not fulfilled in their confined cages.
In Animal Farm, George Orwell illustrates that it is the responsibility of the citizens to stand up against injustice and inequality. As portrayed in the book, society will not change if the citizens make no effort to use their voices to make and drive change. We can become oppressed by our leaders and so can our way of life. We find that it is easier to keep reserved and quiet when voicing our opinion is needed, and can easily become manipulated. The animals in Animal Farm dealt with a lot of injustice and inequality.
Although this is considered a criminal offence, the people of Cedar Ridge didn’t care. To this day nobody knows who committed this crime and nobody wants to fess up about it although there are rewards involved. She argues that the Prairie dogs “Create diversity. Destroy them, and you destroy a varied world.” (Pg 87) I agree with this statement just because I feel like every animal was put on earth to serve a purpose. It isn’t fair that people are murdering animals just because they don’t want them on their property.
In the article "If the zoos didn 't exist, we wouldn 't invent them," the author Camille Labchuck argues that keeping the animals in the zoo is unethical. Labchuck supports this view by pointing out the deprivation that the animals are getting. She supports her claim by noting that the animals are not having the chance to choose their foods, their sleeping place, they are being stripped of their natural lives. The author also points out the limited space that the zoos have. She explains that the zoo spaces are limiting the animal needs.
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.
They do not seize healthy animals for captivity. Many people will argue that SeaWorld trainers are performers rather than biologists, when in reality, they must now pass a certain amount of tests and examinations before coming in contact with any animal. They also only care about the fact that SeaWorld keep Orcas in captivity, but will have no problem with a zoo. This is hypocritical and unfair, as, just like zoos, SeaWorld contribute
Animal Cruelty “One cannot look deeply into the eyes of an animal and not see the same depth, complexity and feeling we humans lay exclusive claims to,” stated Nan Sea Love. Just like what Nan Sea Love said, what is in animals is the same that is in humans, it does not mean it is okay to harm animals. So I ask you, people of Elk County, to prevent animal abuse in our cities. Animal cruelty needs to be explained, prevented, and donations need to be made to local human societies. In the first place, most people are uneducated.
There needs to be laws that make animal testing in The US illegal, and maybe that will set an example for the rest of the world that this is morally incorrect and cruel. There should be laws to protect these animals like there are laws to protect us. They deserve the respect and humanity we receive, imagine your own household pet being take from you to be tortured and starved to the point of death, these animals may have never belonged to someone or had a real family but they should be given the right to have one. The test are not always valid and have no reason to be used if there are other methods using actual human cells which are more reliable. These animals have no voice over what’s happening, animal activists and large organizations try every day to give them what they deserve.
What if it is poisonous? What if it killed someone? I think only normal animals like dogs, cats, bunnies, and fish should be allowed to be pets. Your exotic pet could hurt the owner! I know I wouldn’t want something in my house that I thought would hurt me.
