Dogs as Best Pet

...Arguments on whether dogs are the best pet stretches back to the early times of Greek civilization where it was, at the very best, liminal, human’s best friend compared to other animals that were domesticated (Tapper, 2007). Contrariwise, this statement remains uncertain owing to the fact that the animal is just a few steps from the wolf. In addition to this, in a confined argument, the theory continues, that dogs as pets are not as important as other animals reared as pets. The thesis stateme...

Marine Mammals

...The question if marine mammals should be kept in captivity is tough to answer. Personally, I believe that in our present society there are more urgent matters than amusing audiences by exploiting such intelligent and defenseless animals. We have an ethical and imperative responsibility to think about species that may be negatively impacted by our actions. This includes a lot of species, and cetaceans are no exception. These marine mammals should remain where they evolved and thrived and we shoul...

The worst accident I have ever seen

...The worst part of this whole scenario was the fact that the passenger who flew out died within a matter of seconds after the whole tragedy.

Zoos: Animals in Captivity

...Animals should not be held captive by humans, even if is to benefit them in some way or not. Animals were never meant to exist for our amusement. They are a part of nature. Even though captivity has become a way of life for many species of animals, not all animals can, or should be domesticated Great Cats being one of them.

...At the party, as he looks through Gatsby’s books, Owl Eyes states that Gatsby has captured the effect of theater, a kind of mingling of honesty and dishonesty that characterizes Gatsby’s approach to this dimension of his life.

The novel’s title itself—The Great Gatsby—is suggestive of the sort of vaudeville ...

Wild animals in captivity

...Sometimes experiments may be necessary for the research on cancer and others diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. However I’m greatly against the use of animals to test the efficacy or toxicity of cosmetics or perfumes. The results of the experiments aren’t always reliable.

In conclusion I would argue that is inacceptable to keep wild animals in captivity or experimen...

Are our zoos cruel to wild animals

The behavior may be addressed if it is identified as abnormal and nor...

...Families with pets have no outdoor space for their pets to play or exercise. There is only one local park in the area where no pets are allowed.

The World’s Most Misunderstood Breed of Dogs

...My experience with a Pit bull has proved to me that Pit bulls are loving dogs that have been wrongfully judged and stereotyped. Pit bulls were not born wanting to hurt or even kill any animal or person; they were trained to do it. The owner created that aggressive dog, the dog did not choose to be this way. Many people simply forget this and automatically assume that the breed itself is aggressive, when it is really the owners who train them to be this way. Also many Pit bulls are being euthaniz...

Pet Overpopulation

...These plausible solutions will obviously require extensive time, money and strict enforcement. It would also require hiring people to support the cause, and the government would need to monitor pet stores and breeders.

In addition, more potential pet owners should consider adopting their pets from a legitimate animal shelter or through a rescue group. As a comm...
