Animal Cruelty. It’s a relevant and shameful controversy.
Every year, animals arebeaten, neglected or forced to struggle for survival. Now, do we really require the ‘perfect’ pet? Do you not believe it’s brutaland out of line to the welfare of the animal considering the negative impact ithas on their life expectancy? This nefarious act has to be banned. Inthis talk, I will encompass 3 major areas, which have greatly impacted thelives of animals and have circulated to become crucial controversies with asregards to animal cruelty. These are animal testing, fur trade and pedigreebreeding. Animal Cruelty has to be banished in the depths of hell… Room 101. Firstly, a leading crisis in today’s world is animal testing. Theharmful use of animals in experiments is not only cruel but also ineffective.Animals do not contract many diseases that humans do, some of which include:HIV, types of heart diseases etc.
Effectively, you are throwing an animals lifeaway. It has been proven that 90% of drugs fail in humans despite showingpromising results on animals. It’sbad science and a devious act. Animaltesting is archaic. In the modern and forward-thinking world that we livein today, scientists surely have developed humane ways to test products without murdering innocent souls. Believe it or not, each year, over 50 million animals are violentlymurdered just for their fur. Animals living on fur farms are subjected toappalling living conditions. Confined to tiny battery cages, furbearers sufferfor the entirety of their short lives.
Animals on fur farms are deprived of allthat is natural for them. Devastating?It gets worse. Fur-bearing animals are condemned to horrifying methodsof slaughter, most commonly, anal electrocution, neck breaking and gassing. Thisis all because ‘the skinnersdon’t want to ruin their precious pelt.
‘ Does that sound like a justified case?Animals on fur farms are left completely unprotected from cruelty. There is nothing glamorous about thesuffering and killing of animals. Exempt from animal cruelty and banishit now. Pedigree breeding is a worldwide controversy, not discussed enough.
The folly andhorrors of dog breeding are bonkers and no one takes notice of it! A show oncalled ‘Crufts’ is known to be the world greatest dog show. The dog judged tobe best German shepherd was recently spotted by BBC and looked to be deformed,with an oddly sloping back and weedy, wobbly legs. The public was shocked andappalled when they came to know that this dog had contracted syringomyelia – “asevere inherited progressive neurological disease,” due to the fact that thisdog had been pedigree bred. We as humans are not expected to be perfect. Right?Then why are dogs selectively bred depending on looks and features? Why is itthat they have to suffer from diseases that have been inherited and inbred foryour trophy cup? Is your dog worth sacrificing for a trophy cup? In conclusion, animal cruelty has to be thrown into room 101. Ihope this speech has enabled you to become a little more open-minded aboutanimals and their harsh lives. Next time you pick up a product, think, has an animal been harmed inthe process of this? There is a 75% guarantee that the answer will be yes.We live in a civilized society and animal cruelty is incompatible with theterms “humanity” and “moral”.
Treating animals each of us should orient towards not only animal law,but also our own moral norms. Animal protection should become a priorityfor every self-respecting man and therefore, banish it in Room 101. Thank you.
