Imagine one minute running freely on the vast green terrain surrounding you, then the next locked up in a cold, hard, cage. It sounds horrible, right? Who would want to be locked up with minimal area to stretch your legs, and have people staring at you constantly? I for one, would hate that. I imagine that most animals locked up would share the same feelings. I personally, am against animals being caged. They do not deserve that kind of lifestyle and should not have to live with it just because humans pay money to see it. Animals are suffering greatly from being locked away. When an animal is bought, traded or given to a zoo, the animals rights are stripped away from them.
Suppose that each day one of the biggest challenges you face is the fear and pain of leaving the safety1 and comfort of your home. Presume you fear that elements around you might trigger flashbacks from your past traumatic experience. Suppose you fear going shopping, to restaurants, and mingling with crowds. Assume that you fear the possibility of panic attacks and emotional outburst. Imagine you are stuck in a mire of emotions, grief, depression, and anxiety. Suppose your old self is gone, and you feel dead inside, without a soul. Suppose an invisible entity is in control of your life.
Wild animals are known as “wild” animals for a purpose. If wild animals were intended to be kept shut up in a jail, also known as a zoo, then what exactly is the point of contacting them wild animals anymore? Zoo authorities use many justifications to back up their place that having wild animals in captivity is necessary, but those justifications are neither moral nor necessary enough reasons to deny animals of their organic right to independence. Even under the best of conditions at the best of zoos, captivity cannot even begin to evaluate up to wild animals’ organic settings. At zoos, animals are often avoided from doing most of the things that are organic and essential to them. Zoos educate individuals that it is
only a supporting role to the Police and Metropolitan Guards in the counterinsurgency, was ordered into action. They relied on mass arrests, torture to allegedly gain info on Tupamaros, and large cordon-and-search operations, where warrants weren’t needed. This was done to those allegedly accused of politically motivated crimes. The tortures consisted of: deprivation of water and food, prohibition to take care of psychological needs in the usual places, wrenching of limbs, use of handcuff and even having their heads submerged under water until they began to suffocate. The use of electrical needles, burning genital organs and anus, with cigarettes, were other accounts of torture. These brutalities had been practiced on innocent people who had yet to be tried in court.
Animal captivity has been an ongoing debate for over 60 years. There should be no question about whether animal captivity is wrong. “Hundreds of thousands of wild animals across the world are snatched from natural habitats, forced into captivity and subjected to abuse, both mentally and physically, in the name of entertainment and profit.” (World Animal Protection 1) Places such as the circus use abusive training methods such as, hooks, chains, whips, electric rods, and blunt instruments. (Born Free USA 1) Animals deserve to live freely in the wild. Their freedom is taken away the moment they are put in a cage. When animals are brought into
As a child, many people would often go to the zoo or to the circus and see animals in real life. In circuses, animals would often perform tricks and stunts, dazzling the audience. In the zoo, people would often see animals in their native habitat, or what looks like it. Children were mainly amazed with the animals and were always exited to go see the animals. As the years go by, they start to realize that some of the animals are suffering and are being mistreated, especially in circuses. They see that the animals in zoos are depressed and lonely and the animals in the circuses are chained up. What is worse is that animals in laboratories are often treated very poorly; more poorly than what Americans treat prisoners and refugees. There have been many debates on whether animals should be held in captivity. Some groups believe that animals should not be held in captivity because they have the same capacities as humans. They believe that animals can feel emotion and have a sense of morality. Animals in captivity are deprived of their natural habitat and their instincts. Animals raised in captivity tend to rely more on humans compared to animals raised in the wild. They also believe zookeepers and trainers are putting themselves at risk when taking care of the animals. There have been many incidents including the death of trainers by animals, one highlighted by the movie “Blackfish” by director Gabriela Cowperthwaite. There are others who believe that putting animals in captivity is beneficial for not only the animal, but for humans as well. Humans get more jobs if more animals are put into captivity because there is an increase in the amount of people needed. Another benefit of keeping animals in captivity is that it could help save a species who is endangered and close to going extinct. Another benefit is that it helps increase the amount of food available because some animals are raised for food. Putting animals in captivity wrong unless they are being used for the animal’s benefits.
Think about having to live your whole life in a cage, where you are surrounded by people you are not familiar with. Would you like that? But this is how live is for animals in the zoos.
There isn’t a morally decent person on earth who wouldn’t cringe in revulsion at this heinous crime. Yet these are probably the same cheering spectators who gladly spend their money watching imprisoned creatures perform for their amusement. This practice of capturing large, intelligent animals and holding them in small, enclosed “habitats” for our benefit is barbaric and
Imagine yourself on a regular day, on a regular hour, at a regular place. It’s your everyday routine, nothing special. No signal of change, no fresh air, and no new emotions. Everything seems to be in black and white. Eventually, one day...BAM! All of a sudden things around you seem strange, your ears can’t understand words coming at your direction, your body shivers when you step outside, you stare at a million faces you’ve never seen before, you eat when your body is not used to, you rest when you are not supposed to, you get out of bed at different times too. The money inside your wallet isn’t accepted anymore, you have no idea where everything is...you are in a different country!
How would you feel? Imagine your family takes you to a dark street or the middle of nowhere. They leave you on the side of the street or road and walk away from you and get in a car with no hesitation. Hours, days, and weeks pass and you are walking around looking for your family. Your hair is messy, your clothes are dirty and with holes in them and you have scars everywhere and you are starving and scared. Everyone is looking at you as if you are a ‘walking trashcan’ and children that used to love playing with you when you were with your family are now running away from you, screaming and acting like you are a monster. Time passes again and then guys with big cages and nets looking scary, force you into the cage, and drive you to a place where people are looking at you just like you are. You stay there hoping your family would be one the person looking at you but your family doesn’t come back for you. The people that come to look at you do not wish to take you home. How would you feel? This might sound like a nightmare story written for a movie to you, but it actually is a true story of animals that are abandoned by their owners. When their owners abandon animals, these poor helpless animals are usually dumped out on the streets and are left all alone. As this commercial “Gift” from Zoetis
Innocent animals are locked in cages until they die. All over the United States, they are locked into cages all by themselves. In nature, they are around other animals of their species so when they are locked up like this. It causes them to lose their minds. Some animals go crazy and start acting very odd because they have no contact with other animals. When this happens, the scientists are forced to use horrible tools on them to get them out of the cages to grab them. These animals are dragged into these cages after being injected with nasty things. Some
You awake with a breeze twirling with the fragments of hair left on your scalp; a dance known only to friends of the oncoming light. You open your eyes only to see the endless ocean in the sky. You do not see your family, nor your friends. You demand your legs and arms to function, they do not. You beg them to work the one time you need them to, and in defiance to the groan of your bones, you stand. You begin to wonder if this is a dream, a nightmare. It’s not real. I will see them when I wake up. They are fine. It’s not real. The earth rises and in its presence is the rubble of your home, your brother’s home, and your neighbor’s home, scattered and utterly destroyed. With a horrible realization, you start screaming for the arms of your children and wife to wrap around you once again. You can’t hear yourself scream. You can’t hear anything except the deafening silence. You drop to our knees while your eyes are drowned in a river of sorrow. Then, you feel the small hands of your children grasp yours with surprising fierceness. Though your wife is nowhere to be seen in the mist of dust, you have never been so relieved to bask in the mist of ruins and death.
Torture has been practised for several centuries. Whether it was the Iron maiden or waterboarding, its goal, inducing pain on a certain victim, has stayed the same. Despite all of our social advancements, this heinous and barbaric act is continually defended and justified. Torture is a crime against all living things and should never be practised.
takes place in a utopia in medieval times and there is a tyrant leader named tipit(タイプ)He rose to power by murder and bribe, he is corrupt and uses his advisers magic to do whatever he wants. He heard about the magical helmet and wants it for himself because he had never been able to use magic the kingdom thinks, Because you are not allowed to use magic when you are king. But what they don't know is that he is a master and is very good at it. He throne sits in the capitol although he is never there. He always goes “hunting” where he sneaks out of the kingdom to do bribes and since it's a utopia they think there's no magic, no war, no death but they know crime. The king's magic is torture. A master of torture is super deadly and can be very
