Animal Rights

Hello! I’m Starling. Previously known as PenelopeCrumb. What I meant to say is, its still me! The Authoress of 4Ever fantastic Friends! (Sorry I haven’t posted that in a few weeks)

I have a new blog by the way. Anyway, let’s get on with the post!

Yikes! I forgot to post this week. Sorry! Will post now. Below is an essay about animal rights I wrote for my studies. Hope it sends the message across the screen!

Animal Rights

You may not know this, but lots of animals suffer from animal cruelty. Even though they are many animals which are healthy and happy, there are also sad, unhealthy, neglected, and tortured animals.

Animals are alive too. They have a right to live! Animal hoarding is one of the examples that kill animals. It is when one person is housing more than one animal and cannot take care of them well. This can lead to starvation of animals and can cause the animals to be in distress. But how do we know when that owner is not caring for the animals well? When there are fleas and vermins around; the home is deteriorated; animals are lethargic or emaciated, and many more. Every year, a quarter of a million animals die of hoarding. We do not need this to happen.

Even though farm animals will be killed for food, we should still let them live in a better condition. Many animals raised for slaughter are living on crowded farms. Although many packages of meat, eggs, and dairy claim that they have good animal welfare on labels, only a fraction of it is true.

Animals should not be used for human entertainment. Greyhound racing is one of the human entertainments which use animals. There have been 11, 722 Greyhound injuries, 990 deaths, and 27 cases of cruelty and neglect. And that’s just between 2008-2015! Imagine how many more have already happened between 2016-2017.

These are just a few of the cases which include animal cruelty. There are loads more, and probably many more to come. Some animals have already been rescued, but not all can be saved. We just have to do the best we can. Animals have the right to live too, because God made them that way.

Do you agree with any of these?
