The Horrors of Animal Euthanasia - The Horrors of Animal Euthanasia     Due to the domestication of cats and dogs their populations have skyrocketed. This is due in part to the lack of pet owners acting in a responsible manner. These responsibilities include the spaying and neutering of  pets. These numbers of homeless animals in communities have caused humane societies to euthanize too many animals. This, I feel is a violation to animal rights and is a cruel way for these animals to have to leave this world. I disagree with the activists who believe that the way to keep animal populations down is to euthanize these poor animals....   [tags: Euthanasia Physician Assisted Suicide]

Rabbit Analysis - In the poem, “Rabbit,” the topic is rabbits which represent children and how they can be prey for one group and play for another. In addition to the rabbits representing children, I think that the child in the poem represents a parental figure and the dogs represent people in the outside world. This is supported in the theme which states that children should not be in such a rush to grow up because the outside world can be a cruel place. For example, “the dogs don’t hate [them], merely want to / taste the cider of [their] blood, watch [their] / fur drift lazily toward October clouds / where geese infuriate them” (11-14)....   [tags: essays research papers] 860 words
