If you’re a Ramapo College student, chances are you’ve driven past the horses across the street at least a few dozen times and not given them much thought. But, for Ramapo senior Danielle DeBenedetto, the Bergen County Horse Rescue is the subject of her hard work and dedication.
Horse Slaughter Should be Illegal Imagine the worst way to torture an animal, that's how horses are being slaughtered everyday! I feel horse slaughter should be illegal because organizations are being created to help stop horse slaughter, many laws are already being made to stop it, and horse slaughter is completely inhumane.
Is the slaughtering of horses the most humane method? Horses get treated in brutal and cruel ways on a regular basis, but slaughtering is a painful and disturbing action to imagine. They do not deserve this treatment and yet, they still allow it around the world. The slaughtering of horses
There is a stereotypical image of horses found in a slaughter hold: they are either skinny, sick, or old. So why should the U.S. prevent the practice? According to the USDA, most of the horses found in a slaughterhouse are in perfect health and are formally owned by people as pets. Many owner’s explanations as to why they decided to send their horse or horses to slaughter is simply because they cannot afford to take care of them anymore, they no longer have a use (lameness) and convenience. Although horses often can be pricey to own, there are other options to getting rid of them as opposed to shipping them off to a slaughter plant. For example, selling them to another person who will give them a home, or even donating them to a horse rescue
Over time, people have evolved and grown into kinder and more accepting people, tolerant of all religions, races, sexual orientations, etc. In this age, younger children have grown up in these welcoming environments, not knowing what life was like in a much crueler time.

V] Conclusion A) BSE is a slow fatal neurodegenerative disease affecting adult The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has tested hundreds of thousands of cattle for BSE. Researchers believe that the infectious agent that causes mad cow disease is an abnormal version of a protein normally found on cell surfaces, called a prion. For reasons still unknown, this protein becomes altered and destroys nervous system tissue (brain and spinal cord). There exists strong epidemiologic and laboratory evidence for a causal association between a new human prion disease called variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD) that was first reported from the United Kingdom in 1996 and the BSE outbreak in cattle (http://www.cdc.gov). According to The National Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease Surveillance Unit, by June 2014 it had killed 177 people in the United Kingdom, and 52 elsewhere. This essay will focus on the possible causes, effects, and treatment for this
Mad cow disease, also known as bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), is a transmissible, slowly progressive, degenerative, and fatal disease which affects the central nervous system of adult cattle. Many researchers believe that an abnormal version of a protein normally found on cell surfaces, called a prion is the main reason to cause mad cow disease. For some still unknown reasons, this protein becomes modified and ruins the nervous system tissue, the brain and the spinal cord.
Evolution of the Meat Packing Industry in America Throughout the course of history, the meat packing industry has been one one the most dangerous industries. Until a little over a hundred years ago, the food was just as dangerous to consume as it was for workers to prepare. Although we have made many strides as a country with the food industry, -specifically with the standards for food- slaughterhouses are still dangerous places to work; workers are constantly scared of injury, abused by supervisors, and placed in danger.

Elephant Slaughter In this lesson we watched a video about elephant slaughter and how people sale the Ivory illegally, and for a high price. Ivory is not only beautiful in its own nature but it is very expensive. But unfortunately if we don't stop killing elephants for their ivory they will be extinct in the next 10 years. We also read an article about the same topic, each one has different information about the same topic. The video helps you visualize the article, and the article gives you more information about the video. Multimedia has both pros and cons but both have all the information on the topic. There are advantages and disadvantage to both the video and article.
The issue over beef consumption is strongly related to religion in India. Beef has become an incendiary issue in India. Last month a Muslim teenager was burned alive in Kashmir for the alleged rumors of transporting beef in his truck. All those conflicts come from Saffron ideology (derived from Hindus) which is opposed to eating any kind of meat. Animals are perceived as Gods and therefore eaten animals is considered as a sin for certain groups. This is not the biggest problem I think because everybody has its beliefs but the fact that the regulatory force in indifferent that all these attacks is outraging. It’s simply show how certain group have power over the law in certain
Banning of Beef in India One week ago, the Indian state of Maharashtra which is located on the western part of the country banned beef consumption. The government of the region has banned both the possession as well as the consumption of meat. Muslims living on the western part of the country have criticized the move stating it will cause many people to lose their job and increase the poverty rate.
