Animal Abuse

Animals are sometimes treated as friends but are also
treated as enemies. We keep them as pets, but if it suits
us, we slaughter them in their own habitats and in
slaughterhouses.
If we could kill them in a quick and pain-free way,
like a special injection, which is not harmful to us, it
would be a lot nicer to the animals being killed. However, the scenes in slaughterhouses are ones of bullying and
torture. The people hurt the animals in the most horrific
ways possible, for example, slitting their throats while
they are still alive and dropping them from great heights
to break their legs and necks and other bones. These are
just two of the many ways of slaughter that are used today. Meat is needed for a good healthy diet. We should not
hunt animals for sport or make them do silly circus tricks like, standing on their heads and climbing on top of other animals. Angling might be the only exception to this
because without angling, the rivers would be over populated with fish (who have a very small memory span anyway). It
could disrupt the food chain. Hunting wild animals and
reptiles is not necessary. The food chain would be just
fine if we stopped wild animal hunting, for example, fox
hunting, wild cat hunting, elephant hunting, crocodile
hunting and whale hunting.
We should not kill animals for fur. Thousands of years
ago, our ancestors wore animal skins and furs to keep warm and dry. Today we have man made fibres to make such
garments. We can also buy man made clothes that look and
feel just like real fur, if not more comfortable. There is no need for us to kill these poor innocent creatures for
status symbols. It takes many more than five lynx's to make one small fur coat. It is disgusting. How would you like it if some bigger stronger creature than yourself killed you
for your hair or your bones so they can make clothes out of your hair and food...
