That’s not what most owners want but several pets will only feed on live food. “Born Free USA, a nonprofit advocacy organization that strives to end the ownership of wild animals, has documented some 1,500 attacks, including 75 human deaths, escapes and other incidents involving exotic pets since 1990.” according to MyHealthNewsDaily. Another thing to consider is these are wild animals, so they don't like to be in their cage. Exotic pets will do anything to get out of their enclosure. If exotic pets get out it is a grave jeopardy to anyt... ... middle of paper ... ... but they are not worth it to own.
An estimated eight million homeless animals in the United States are victims of euthanization as a means to keep the population under control (humanesociety.org). Not just sick or old animals are subject to these humane deaths, but healthy, young ones that deserved a good home. Many veterinarians tell their clients to get their furry companions neutered, due to this over population. However, people use inadequate excuses such as breeding to leave their comrade intact. Thus, dogs and other animals should be neutered or spayed due to the fact that there are too many pets in the USA and neutering and spaying reduces many health risks known in animals.
Yet we still see these miserable cubs being advertised for sale on websites. According to a survey done by the International Fund for Animal Welfare, 796 live wild animal advertisements on 11 websites and only 20% of them claimed that documentary of legitimate sale proof was available. The UAE is also part of the International treaty to protect wildlife against over-exploitation, and to prevent international trade from threatening species survival. Wild animals like cheetahs and tigers cannot be tamed it is in their natural habitat to be wild and attack when they feel threatened. Usually the owners of these pets have the staff deal with the feeding, bathing and taking care of the animal this exposes them to dangerous situation and life frightening ones... ... middle of paper ... ...with bribes, would help solve this issue.
Not only do we have other options for these tests, but animals testing has actually been proven to be ineffective. Companies claim that this sort of cruelty will benefit the human population by testing the “safety” of the products, as they have been for hundreds of years and although this may have been helpful in the past, scientists have discovered otherwise. “While funding for animal experimentation and the number of animals tested on continues to increase, the United States still ranks 49th in the world in life expectancy and second worst in infant mortality in the developed world” (“Animal Testing Is”). This evidence shows that while we still continue to support and spend money on animal testing, it is not working as well as we thought.Essentially we are torturing the animals for a negative outcome, both for the human and the animal. The Food and Drug Administration reports that “92 out of every 100 drugs that pass animal tests fail in humans” (“Top Five Reasons”).
Rabies Control Rabies is widespread due to the lack of control, especially in third-world countries that obtain the virus usually through being bitten by the animals in the wild. Nevertheless, rabies cases overall has decreased compared to previous years due to increased restrictions that includes vaccinations and laws. This has made countries such as the United States and Great Britain average about only a couple of cases of rabies a year. Unfortunately, rabies will most likely remain as it is impossible to vaccinate every mammal and there are animals that can live successfully with the disease. “All warm blooded animals are susceptible to rabies; but, according to the World Health Organization’s Expert Committee on the disease, not all animals are equally susceptible…dogs are listed as only moderately susceptible; but dogs are without any doubt the animals most likely to spread the infection to human beings.” (Kaplan et al.
“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself (Josh Billing)”. The main reasons animals end up in shelter is because owners give them up, or animal control finds them on the street. Also homeless animals are lost pets that were not kept properly indoors. Homeless animals outnumber homeless people five to one and one out of every ten dogs born will find a permanent home According to the National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy .Also less than 2 percent of cats and only 15 to 20 percent of dogs are returned to their owners when they are lost. Approximately more than 13,000 healthy or treatable animals were killed out of the 54,129 that entered city shelters last year.
Other imputs say that 90% of medicines tested on animals fail on humans. Then again medicinces that fail on animals work for humans. For example, Aspirin is dangerous for some animal species, and Fk-506 which is used to lower the risk of organ transplant rejection, was "almost shelved" because of animal test results. Not only that but digitalis, a heart drug, cancer treatments, insulin, penicillin and other safe medicines would have been banned if animal testing 's were heeded. More facts found saif that about 33 animals die in laboratories worldwide one in every four seconds.
One of the worst parts of humanity’s role in animal abuse is that there are easy ways for people to help that they are either ignorant of or simply refuse to do. There are many examples of animals who are abused by humans, but there are also ways for people to help prevent and put an end to animal abuse. One of the animals that people allow to suffer in the U.S. is dogs. Currently 36 states either allow or mandate that animal shelters be willing to release unwanted animals to laboratories for testing, and about 80% of the experiments performed on these animals are funded by citizen tax dollars. Communities that have actually done away with pound seizures have actually shown that their pet shelters are able to place more pets in homes as well as having to euthanize fewer animals because of the increased confidence in the shelter.
Also, the pain is usually helpful to show how the procedure would harm humans. The animals’ pain actually saves human beings pain. Animal Testers are seen as the “bad guys”, when less than one dog/cat is used for research and studies for every 50 destroyed by animal pounds across the country. Millions and millions of animals are euthanized when they cannot be taken care of in a shelter anymore. Another assumption made with animal testing is that it is mostly dogs and cats.
Overpopulation threatens the lives of companion animals more than any infectious disease and results from a combination of too many pets for the number of suitable homes and unprepared pet owners, states Dr. Jeanette O’Quin, who is the current president of the Association of Shelter Veterinarians (Whitcomb). No one knows how many dogs and cats are in the United States, but many people debate whether our country suffers from pet overpopulation. Betsy... ... middle of paper ... ...s." 29 August 2013.
