Animals are unique creatures placed all around the world, each with their own genuine, exotic, and weird personalities. Unfortunately, every year, “scientists” use them to test potentially dangerous products that most people use in our everyday lives. Although scientists claim that there is no other way to test them, and that their work ethics are a necessity to keep the society safe, they are wrong. There are many other ways to test animals without harming them, and “scientists” should be using those ways with no problem. Animal testing is inhumane, cruel and unethical, and there are other, non-harmful ways to test. Animals make up a huge portion of our earth. Actually, statistics from WorldStory.net say that that nobody will ever be able to figure out the amount of animals in the world, nor will we be able to find out how many species of animals there are. Without animals, we wouldn’t have enough food sources. Some animals provide us with sufficient meat, and if scientists keep testing them, they might switch to those sources, which will cut down our meat production. Every year, more than 100 million animals are abused and killed. Some have abusive pet owners, some are abandoned, and the most common, animal testing. Millions of animals die each year because they become subjects for medical testing, and harmful experiments. According to an article from Peta.org More than 100 million animals are poisoned, burned, crippled, and abused in other ways in U.S. labs each year. Some are forced to inhale extremely toxic fumes, while others are immobilized in restraint devices for hours while being injected with potentially harmful medicine. An article entitled “Animal Testing 101” reveals this disturbing information: Monkeys are addicted to drugs and have holes drilled into their skulls, sheep and pigs have their skin burned off and rats have their spinal cords crushed.
