Decent Essays
The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is the nation’s largest and most effective animal protection organization which provides hands-on-care and services to more than 100,000 animals each year. HSUS is working to put in place animal care and control agencies to create communities for our wildlife neighbors, where humane and non-lethal solutions are given priority (Humane Society). The author has a compact argument and properly uses facts and statistics, logos, to support their argument. Additionally, the author does not rely on ethos, to gain their audiences attention. A nine-month undercover investigation by the Humane Society of the United States has revealed unlawful mistreatment of hundreds of chimpanzees and other primates at a federally funded New Iberia Research Center (NIRC) in Louisiana. The NIRC cages about 6,000 monkeys and 325 chimpanzees on its 100 acres which is a massive amount. The investigation reveals animals forced with anxiety and discomfort behind bars of this research facility. Jane Goodall, Ph.D., DBE, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace which advocates improved welfare for and better knowledge of chimpanzees, primates, and other animals said, “In no lab I have visited have I seen so many chimpanzees exhibit such intense fear” (Humane Society). In 1900, close to 1 million chimpanzees lived in the wild, as of today there are as few as 340,000, which is an astonishing drop of population. Valerie Jane Morris
