The conditions for animals in modern slaughterhouses are unsanitary and violent. The lack of rules and regulations cause animals to be treated poorly because this industry is focused on mass production and profit rather than finding a more humane alternative to run the meat packing business. The most effective method to stop this cruelty is to learn about where meat comes from, start supporting the organic and family farms which will ultimately lead to the reducing the amount of animals that have to suffer.
This story Animal Farm by George Orwell is a novel about an animal revolution over an oppressive farmer. The irony in the story comes when the pigs turn into the very thing revolted against. They exhibit the same cruelty by treating the other animals the same or even worse than previous owners. This cycle of cruelty is shown in the Russian revolution by Joseph Stalin who is represented by Napoleon in the story. Cruelty in animal farm is shown by the human’s treatment of the animals, and the animal’s eventual treatment of each other and the ironic characteristics of the two.
The people know about Michael Vick that he was the quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles and played for 13 seasons in the National Football League (But there is another story that Michael Vick has been involved in dog fights and went to prison for the actions that committed).That does not cover on what had happened to the dogs,Donna Reynold’s had said in details that the swimming pool was used for kill some of the dogs as she continues,the people did not know how many suffered the permitted murder,but the damage of pool walls tells a story. Michael Vick did not just put dogs to fight, but he would hang, drown, shoot, repeatedly slamming their head and spine into the ground
Laws are not strong enough against animal cruelty and people do not know about this problem because it is not as prominent as others. Some of the reasons humans kill animals is for food, clothing, and entertainment. The way we kill animals in doing these are very brutal and inhumane. The only thing they care about is to produce a mass amount of meat, in a short period of time, and with little food to feed the animals. The last thing they are worried about is the animal itself and its feelings and needs.
Movies, TV shows, circuses, and illegal gatherings in an old car garage are all places that animal abuse has taken place for the entertainment of humans. Since the 1900’s movie producers have been using animals in their productions (Dugas). Inhumane and unnecessary, are just two words that describe animal abuse, the use of animals for human entertainment is cruel and injustice.
What is animal abuse? For starters, animal abuse is when a person inflicts suffering or harm on any animal. Most people, all over the world own an animal; but there are still far more animals left out on the street. Homeless animals are either left out on the streets or are “thrown” into shelters. This became a problem because not all animals are domesticated. Animal shelters began as pounds. “When the system began to be used to impound wandering dogs and cats, these animals were often killed because little monetary value was placed on them” (Lila Miller, Animal sheltering in the United States: Yesterday, today, and tomorrow, 1) . This issue persists because shelter workers and others truly believe that an animal life has no value, but that is not true; animals are living beings just like humans with brains, hearts, and bones. A reported case was that “authorities had seized 23 puppies, 11 cats, and four adult dogs from a self-processed animal “rescue” after they were found in the “rescuer’s” filthy home.” (‘No-Kill’ Label Slowly Killing Animals, 3). This means that an unauthorized person hoarded many animals and forced the animals into an unsafe “shelter”. The shelter being a dirty home.
The killing of animals has been ubiquitous almost since the creation of the world. Some animals are killed as a sacrifice to a “greater being”. Other animals are killed for food. Finally, some animals are killed for sport, that is, human leisure.
Had the Slaughterhouse Cases been solely about providing a solution to the various problems that precipitated when slaughtering livestock near an overcrowded population, it is doubtful that they would have ever been regarded as significant. However, the predominant reasons why the Slaughterhouse Cases are notable is that this was the first time that the Supreme Court deliberated on the meaning of a newly enacted amendment, and even more importantly, their ultimate decision has been deemed as one of the worst mistakes to have ever been made. In terms of the latter, the final ruling of the Slaughterhouse Cases has been subjected to enormous amounts of criticism by both historians and legal scholars on the grounds that Miller interpreted the Privileges or Immunities Clause down to practically
It would be fair to say that there are some clear legal differences between the foundation or early period and the post civil war period of America, although the constitution perhaps shouldn’t be completely separated between those two time tables as many contend. The case known as the Slaughterhouse Cases plays into my argument that the amendments started a slow change and that it took the courts multiple chances to interpret them correctly and fairly. Being the first interpretation of the newly enacted 14th amendment the court was challenged with a pivotal case that would help shape early civil rights law. The court concluded that the 14th amendment's Privileges and Immunities Clause only affected the rights of U.S citizenship not state citizenship.
No doubt that Animals go through the same pain and suffer like humans, at the same time do not get the same treatment. I think killing and murdering animals is morally wrong. Therefore, we should assess the animal feelings before hunting them for food. For instance, hunting a deer that delivered a newborn, and leaving the young alone
People who work at slaughterhouse are often in danger or abused. Everyday when they enter the slaughterhouse the workers are put in danger, working with big knives and big machines that can cause a big injury. The Fast Food Nation states, “ One day, Kenny was in rendering and saw a worker about to stick his head into a pre-breaker machine, a device that uses hundreds of small hammers to priversize gristle and bone into a fine powder” (Schlosser, 189). Kenny is a worker that works in the slaughterhouse who had gone through a lot of injuries that he can’t report. Workers are unable to report their injuries to a supervisor. Injuries from a small cut to missing fingers, broken bones, and to amputated limb. If people didn’t eat meat slaughterhouse
It doesn’t make sense to eat meat when there is no need to do so. Humans can live long, happy, and healthy lives on an all plant-based food diet. Sense this is correct, there is no need to continue to put these animals in pain that is no longer necessary for our survival. The treatment of these animals is inhumane and brutal. This treatment is equivalent to a person beating up your dog and killing it because they think it is fun. The only plausible reason humans eat meat is merely for the taste of it. Who doesn’t like a nice juicy steak, but if you were to really know about what it took for that piece of meat to reach your dinner table and truly understand the pain and suffering, then you would never order that piece of steak again.
Animal cruelty continues to plague the meat and dairy industry and a policy to reverse this is enacting stricter regulations on meat and dairy labels that explicitly state the additives and preservatives used on the product. Moreover, my policy will persuade people to purchase meat and dairy that is ethically raised and is not made with preservatives or additives, this is my value of health. Moreover, my policy is for those who eat meat and dairy and are unaware of the health side affects of consuming it and the animal cruelty that goes into producing a piece of meat or glass of milk, which encompasses my value of compassion. We are a compassionate species who turns the channel during an ASPCA commercial. We root for Nemo, Babe and Bambi yet we watch the movie whilst eating fish, pork or venison. The hypocrisy is unbelievable yet not talked about. Most Americans do not recognize this link between our compassion and the animals we eat and the hypocrisy that surrounds it. In this essay I address the compassion humans posses and how it is being wiped out through eating meat and dairy. I also address how we have the potential to rid the meat and dairy industry of the abuse. I will also discuss how meat and dairy is detrimental to our health.
So we don’t need huge sharp teeth like other mammals do to chew their food. Eating meat is just part of us and our nature. With us humans being carnivores it is our nature to eat meat. With the exact definition of carnivore being an animal that eats meat or a meat eater it is literally part of us to eat. We shouldn’t have what is part of us taken away because a few people want all of us to vegetarian. We shouldn’t mess with nature and change what our bodies are made for. Why would we eliminate what has benefited us for over 2.3 million years? There is no point in messing with nature and taken away what is important to your body.
Humans don’t need meat. We don’t need to eat the rotting carcasses of animals to survive on this world. Contrary to the popular belief, our ancestors thousands of years ago didn’t go round with spears and hunt prey. They ate a plant based diet, based mainly on things that they could pick with their hands. Furthermore it is believed we only started eating meat when we came across remains that carnivores had left. But our bodies have never adapted to eating meat, in fact it raises your chances of contracting heart disease, cancer and diabetes among other illnesses. Our bodies are not designed to sustain a meat centred diet.
