Moreover, researchers define zoos as public parks which presenting animals. (Cited in Jamieson,1985). Although some people claim that Zoos, aquariums and circus violate animal rights and should be shut down to liberate animal from the captivity, many proponents believe that Zoos, aquariums, and circus have important benefits in amusement and education. According to Encarta ( 2003), an animal should be liberated from the captivity and get their freedom. There is a moral presumption against keeping wild animals in captivity.
The circus may be fun to watch, but the animal treatment is very cruel and harsh. Ninety-six percent of animals that belong to the circus spend their whole lives in cages and chains (Enjoying the Circus?). Occasionally, the animal is allowed out of its contained space, but it will face brutal punishment if it engages in natural behavior. Sleeping and eating are also difficult for the animals. They are placed in small containers that lack temperature control and are constantly traveling and moving.
Animals are being badly used in circus in order to entertain the viewers and make them laugh. Without thinking that it is a living creatures like you have the right to live freely. Animals must be free in their forest and wild life. And not to mess with food chain or the natural balance of wild life. As a result, it might put many spices in the risk of extension.
“Most animals in these facilities are forced to endure physical and psychological abuse for months if not years on end, deprived of the ability to perform behaviors inherent to their species, and housed in overcrowded facilities with insufficient food, water and natural light” (Animal Cruelty). From here on out, animal abuse continued to grow throughout the years, as sad as it
Captive animals are deprived of everything that is natural and important to them. Bull riding has become a very famous activity. The riders are not only taking the animal out of its normal surroundings but also putting them in much physical danger. Circus animals will never receive the same experience as they would in the wild. It should be illegal to use animals for sports and entertainment because many times it is cruel to the animals.
The life of a circus animal is one of boredom, trauma, hunger, and isolation. The Los Angeles time writer Chris DeRose expressed that animals “often exhibit abnormal behaviors, such as pulling out their fur, incessant swaying and bar biting” due to these awful conditions. In the article “Ringling Bros End Is a Win for Animals” the author Chris DeRose explains the pain animals go through during their lives in the circus. It starts off when the animas are babies. The author described in the article that, “many are taken from the wild as babies and watch as their parents are slaughtered.” Other animals are born in the facilities and have never experienced the wild or known freedom.
First, these animals are dangerous and they can end up attacking their owners. Secondly, these animals are born in the wild, and are meant to remain in the wild because they will have enough exercises, and get the right food. In addition, chimpanzees and tigers are unpredictable and they can end up attacking their owners or anyone near them. Therefore, people should not be allowed to keep exotic animals like chimpanzees or tigers as pets due to the severity of the issues they can cause, and the problems they have with their owners. Therefore, keeping exotic animals should be banned completely because, the number of injuries and diseases reported to be caused by exotic animals are on the rise, and the death tallies are even much
The animals that had confessed to their heinous crimes were executed by the dogs who ‘tore their throats out’. By doing so, the animals experience physical fear for the first time since Animal Farm was formed. By making an example out of these animals; some of whom had apparently associated themselves with Snowball, other members of the working class do not want to speak against Napoleon, or the slain animals’ fate could also become theirs too. In this case, both psychological and physical fear control the animal’s actions and
Most circus animals do not realize they are being abused because it becomes a daily part of their lives for many years. Animal abuse is displayed in the novel Water for Elephants, by Sara Gruen by describing the animal’s living conditions and how the trainers treat them compared to circuses in current society. Passive animal cruelty is an indirect way of animal abuse,
Although zoos are entertaining, it causes abnormal behavior in animals, avoids education on and conservation of animals, and violates animal rights. Animals that are confined in zoos show abnormal behaviors known as Zoochosis. Repetitive behaviors such as pacing, swaying, bar biting, and head bobbing are considered as a sign of poor welfare, and an animal’s coping strategy to the change from the wilderness to an artificial environment. Rocking and swaying is also a behavior displayed by humans with mental illnesses. The change to a simulated environment can often lead an animal to depression.
