Animal Rights and Abuse

Animal rights has to do with the idea that animals should have the same basic rights as humans. Abuse includes anything that hurts or harms the animal, such as not providing a suitable living space, using animals for drug experimentation, and physically harming them.

Does the animal shelter put sick dogs to sleep?

It depends on which animal shelter you're talking about. There are some who simply do not treat any animals and they kill all or nearly all animals for illness or space. Some treat minor illnesses then the animal is put up for adoption. If space gets tight, though, they may still kill animals.

There are at least 87 communities in the United States with shelters who do not kill for space, nor do they kill animals with treatable illnesses or animals with behavior problems that can be rehabilitated. These shelters manage to save over 90% of the animals who come through their doors, reserving euthanasia for its true purpose: to end irremediable suffering.

What is the advantage of animal euthanasia?

There are only three situations that immediately come to mind where euthanizing an animal has distinct advantages.

1st- An animal has massive physical trauma and is highly unlikely to survive and is euthanized to end its suffering (see #2)

2nd- An animal has a chronic condition in which state it is in immense pain, and the owner feels it to be immoral to allow the animal to suffer any longer than absolutely necessary.

3rd- An animal has been proven to be highly aggressive (for example a dog that mauled a child). It will often be put down to avoid future acts of extreme aggression.

I am sure there are other reasons why an animal would be put down, but I believe these to be the main reasons.

Why do people smuggle animals?

Some will do it simply for money. While you can get more money from smuggling drugs you can also get more jail time if you are caught. Animal smuggling from that stand point is "safer".

Others do it because they want to own an animal that is restricted for some reason, being endangered, or seen as a risk for the local wildlife etc. If they can't get it legally they might try illegaly.

Then there are those who smuggle animals that already are someone's pets. Certain animals have to go through quarantine when travelling from one country to another, and that takes time and can cost the owner a fair bit. Smuggling the animal is the both faster and cheaper.

Who is more cruel man or animal?

Man is one of few species which kill for fun. Chimpanzee will sometimes raid another group's territory and massacre (but technically, they are battling for territory). Chimps have been known to walk up to a nursing mother chimp and grab her baby, kill it and share the meat with the others (except Mom...guess that's a plus).

Female lions avoid mating when they have young cubs, so when a male lion wants to get his freak on, he'll walk over and kill the cubs then get it on with Mom moments later - yeesh O_o

Bottle-nose Dolphin are known to punch the stomachs of porpoise repeatedly until their internal organs bleed out. The attacks are senseless and not for any purpose other than fun.

The common house cat will regularly nab a bird, mouse, rat, gopher, or young rabbit and toss them around for hours as they slowly die, yet not so much as take a nibble. Just toying with them until they are eventually dead and too boring to play with.

I think what makes MAN the most cruel species is we have the sense to KNOW BETTER and BE BETTER, yet we are still (as a whole) a violent and treacherous species of animal.

Should animals be eaten?

Answer: Some people choose not to eat meat because of the way that they are treated. We are not carnivores. Animals should lead natural lives, free from confinement, suffering from the hands of humans and unnatural death.

Answer: If one decides they want to be a meat eater, they can very well do so whether another human being believes they should or not. Life survives from life, as in, each and every living organism feeds off of another to sustain their life, no matter what it is. Humans have eaten animals for the longest, and many choose not to weed it out of our existence for many reasons. some reasons are people enjoy the taste, some cannot afford to change their whole diet around, and/or for others, going vegetarian/vegan is not healthy for them at all regardless of how it effects another.

Why are Whales extinct instead of Chickens?

Whales aren't extinct. However, the reason for the population difference is that Whales take longer to reproudce than Chickens do. Not only that, many Chickens are kept for the sole purpose of producing eggs and since they are a common food source, humans breed them.

It takes a Whale seven months to reproduce and a Chicken two weeks.

How are cosmetics tested on animals?

In a few ways. There is the Draize test, where they drip product into rabbits' eyes. There is a skin test where they put the product on animals' bare skins. They used to shave rabbits for this, but shaving a rabbit throws uncertainty into the experiment: was the irritation caused by the product or by shaving the rabbit? There are genetically engineered hairless animals they use now for this. There are lethal dose tests but they aren't done except for dyes--nothing else has a track record of killing anyone. None of these tests is necessary anymore because there's a list of ingredients you can use to make safe makeup, and the most important question (whether anyone likes wearing the makeup item) can only be answered by having people wear it.
