Animal Cruelty

Animal cruelty is a very large problem that many people ignore. Sometimes you may be supporting it without knowing. Have you ever been to a circus? Well, every major circus that uses animals (including the Ringling Brothers) has been cited for violating the minimal standards of care set by the AWA. Do you eat chicken? Well, 90% of broiler chickens have trouble walking because they are injected with hormones. Have you ever done a biology lesson in which you dissect an animal? Over 115 million animals die in biology lessons, cosmetic testing, and drug or food tests. Sadly, many dogs and cats are abused by their owners.

How do we stop it? If you would like, create flyers that raise awareness about animal cruelty to hand out. Consider becoming a vegetarian. If that doesn’t work for your lifestyle, make sure you purchase meat treated without antibiotics.  You could buy free-range eggs. Talk to your parents and friends and have them spread the word as well. Tell your school, too. You might try to organize an assembly during school and perhaps invite a speaker from your local Humane Society. Report animal cruelty. If you would like to adopt dogs or cats or any other kind of pets use the ASPCARescue Me, or any other rescue animal site. These are all simple ways to help prevent animal cruelty. Please help.

    Hi Ethan,

    I am an animal science teacher in Pennsylvania right near Philadelphia. I teach high school students about animals and the skills necessary to work in the animal industry. I am currently completing my masters degree and learning about student blogging. I was researching student blogs and I came across your blog about animal cruelty. Your blog was really interesting and eye opening about how people overlook the amount of animal cruelty that goes on during everyday life. I think it’s important for people to know where and how their food and products are produced. A lot people overlook the process and care that goes into raising animals for entertainment, food, and pharmaceutical use. As a society we need to do better to ensure that animals are treated and cared for properly. Thank you for sharing that information.
