Animal Cruelty and Massive Corporations

415 Words2 Pages
Animal cruelty is a rapidly growing nationwide problem. Animals are being battered and starved everyday. There are many forms of animal cruelty; some forms are scientific research, abandonment, and mistreatment.

What many people believe is that most of these cases are done by animal owners is utterly untrue. Massive corporations like McDonalds and KFC’s have slaughterhouses in which they slaughter up to 4 million animals, per factory per day. They also use equipment that cause prolonged periods of suffering to animals, these corporations are also in total denial when confronted, this is absolutely shocking.

Many people believe that animal cruelty is an acceptable consequence if done for scientific purposes or to sustain human economy. Just imagine yourself being a monkey, for a shampoo testing organization, being forced to take chemicals down your throat to see its effect, and if you didn’t die during this process, you would’ve been killed and dissected anyway to see what organs have been affected. All this needs to be done for what purpose? To make sure that someone could have the really needed necessity of having another great, lovely new shampoo that smells exactly like all the others in the market, just wonderful.

Some countries (for example Canada) allow the clubbing of seals to be taken place every year, for entertainment and their fur. And what about the elephants, did we really have to wait until they were nearly extinct before abolishing the ivory trade, just a few years ago?
