So they believe that is a better benefit to risk an animal life than a human life. The World Medical Association Declare of Helsinki states that human trials should be preceded by tests on animals. But the real truth is that the drugs that they use on the animals aren’t necessary safe for us , for example the 1950s sleeping pill thalidomide, which caused 10,000 babies to be born with severe deformities. Scientist tries it on pregnant mice, rats, guinea pigs, cats, and hamsters, but it did not result in birth defects unless the drug was administered at extremely high doses. In conclusion animals testing should not be done because animals are like human beings, they feel, they live, they eat so why would we want to kill animals for any type of testing when we could try it on a human being that might want to let the scientist try it on them.
In the commentary “Let People Own Exotic Animals” it states in line 4-7, “Responsible private ownership of exotic animals should be legal if animal welfare is taken care of. Terry Thompson did not represent the typical responsible owner.” Thompson was not a good caretaker of exotic animals, and it was not the animals’ faults they were set free to put people in danger, it was Thompson’s irresponsibility. In the Article Of the Week it talks about how Wolf Run Wildlife Refuge puts safety fences around their animals to ensure they stay inside. If exotic animal owners do this they can own exotic animals without facing the consequence of them losing
This definitely helped a lot, but still doesn’t fix the problem with predators. Predators are like robbers of their prey’s life. Once one is caught, predators never let go. While some may argue that being in a zoo will affect an animal’s hunting skills, it’s not always the best plan to let endangered animals free in the wild. It stands to reason that society should continue keeping our animals safe from danger in
Mistreating animals as if one does not care for them is the same as mistreating humans. By mistreating poor doubtless animals it affects them and can sometimes lead into suffering stress. If humans are able to protect each other from harm, then why cannot animals do the same thing by having rights? This question is usefully asked for those who try to protect the rights of animals. In the article Of Primates and Personhood the author Ed Yong, a science journalist, contends, “I feel we should extend rights to a wide range of nonhuman animals… ‘all creatures that can feel pain should have a basic moral status’” (5).
Zoos may be very necessary for endangered species. But, there are different ways how to save and continue endangered species, and every zoo have had choice how they do it. Some zoos are breeding endangered species trying to continue the species, but that is not right, because it leads to very complicated health issues. For example white tiger who are very rare animal, breeding requirements are that all white tigers parents must be white tigers too, to get only white tiger, and so are zoos breeding white tigers fathers with their daughters and mothers with their sons. But some zoos again are preserving and studying endangered species in captivity to save endangered species in the wild.
“The 750,000 black bears of North America kill less than 1 person a year.” Black bears should not be killed.Remember the times you hug and love teddy bears, but now it doesn’t make sense that people want to KILL them. They are innocent animals that you take a life from for your own benefit and is not going to stop the population from growing. Others kill them just for a boast or a simple display. People don’t think about other bears that are left alone well, thanks to hunters they will eventually die. Black bears are not dangerous, they are afraid of you.
Animals should have the right to be free from unnecessary suffering and experimentation because they are innocent creatures. An argument for opposing the Animal Bill of Rights is that research will be slowed or stopped completely, resulting in the death of humans that could have been saved. The Animal Bill of Rights is not meant to stop or prevent experimentation on animals; it is meant to limit the extraneous suffering and torment animals go through in the name of development. Animals are innocent- it cannot defend itself against malevolent human intentions. The Animal Bill of Rights is meant to prevent the exploitation of animals and refute the justification that experimentation makes animal cruelty moral.
They are forced to lift their feet and head for the enjoyment of humans. If people knew what elephants had to experience for their enjoyment they would not want to watch. In addition, zoos are also inhumane because they enclose the animals in habitats too small for their well-being. If there isn’t enough room in the zoo, some will even kill the animals. In other cases, they are bred simply to attract visitors, which puts a strain on space, resources and endangers the older, less popular animals.
This problem affects everyone not just their animals. It affects everyone because if we keep using their animals for entertainment and killing them because they did not make enough money then there will be no meat for people to eat. People should try to make it illegal at least some states, that will help with the longer life for an animal. It will also help because the animals at the zoo don't get that much love or help from their zookeepers. If we release them into the wild then it will live a normal life as an animal.
If zoos ignore the standards and regulations that are given to them, they will be shut down (?List of Pros and Cons of Zoos?). Today I tried to persuade you to believe that zoos are beneficial to animals and people. Zoos are helpful to animals in many ways and are also a safe place for animals to live their lives. Now that you know how animals are benefitted in zoos, maybe you will begin to realize how fortunate animals really are to be in
