    1,414 words
    Animal rights are an increasingly large concern in many communities. Some people, believe animal rights as a trivial issue in the world at the moment. However, I find this matter to be untrue.

  • Live Animals
    672 words
    Judgment on a Past Time In reading the selection Dream of a Long Fur Coat, by Barbra Drews, I noticed that not all people view the world the same way. In this selection the author feels that animals that are trapped or raised in pins are being wrongly killed for the use of their fur. She justifies her reasons for feeling this way by over exaggerating the events that lead to the processing of fur. Barbra Drews clearly explains how iron traps, the most common traps used by trappers, do their part ...
  • Cheetahs Prey On Animals

    For my vertebrate animal I chose the Cheetah. The Cheetah or Acinonyx Juba tus is an endangered species.

    588 words
    Give and Take Where do you stand on the mistreatment of animals Are you completely against hurting animals, so much so that you would never eat meat or use them for research to cure deadly human diseases Animals are not objects that hold no rational thoughts.

  • Animals Lives

    Doing Time Are zoos really safety retreats for exotic animals or wretched prisons When I was a child, I used to think that zoos were cheerful and exciting places to go, wonderful places where humans helped misplaced animals to live happy lives. However, I was very wrong! Fortunately, I was blinded by the clowns and cotton candy and did not see that the animals were not happy or cheerful, and the zoos were not wonderful places. Now that I am an adult, I have come to realize just how pitiful zoos ...

In a few weeks, his cage becomes too small to even turn around. He spends the days in boring agony, his only physical stimulation being the sounds of loud mac...

  • Animal Dissection
    1,428 words
    Should animal dissection be permitted to continue in elementary, middle, and high schools that already use it? No way! I am totally against it! You can ban it in elementary, middle, and high schools because you really don't need it and some students won't even have a field related with this for their careers. The dissection activity should be open to those who have chosen to pursue a career that requires the knowledge of animal anatomy. People who have planned to pursue a career that requires th...

But we have learned and have been conditioned with the fact that other animals are not as mortally or intelligently as important as we are. We...
  • Rights Of Animals
    437 words
    The rights of animals is a topic that is very important to me. I simply think that everyone should have the decency to treat animals with kindness and respect, and not make them suffer in any way.

It has been shown that animals are capable of feeling pain, hunger, thirst, loneliness, and kinship. It breaks my heart when I see people wearing fur. Fur belongs to its original owner. Some fur ...
