Animals Have Rights Too You Know!

There is too much cruelty to animals – l could gloss it up, make it more aesthetic or just say it how it is which l have chosen to do. People are cruel to animals, not just domestics, but equally, agricultural, exotic and natural species.

Animal abuse is on the rise, it’s always on the rise – people harm animals whether it is illegal or not.

You don’t have to be an activist to understand the ins and outs of animals’ rights, but you DO have to care. You have a responsibility to not just animals in distress, but equally your own moral code of conduct.

That should you witness any intentional cruelty to animals you should take the necessary steps to prevent that abuse or notify the authorities to take action. Don’t let apathy rule your thoughts, or complacency or ‘ l don’t care it’s not my problem’ as in a negative attitude because you need to, you need to care more!

What is animal cruelty?

Animals being subjected to  …

Torture, beating, inhumane killing

Inappropriate transportation

Inappropriate confinement

Inadequate feeding, watering, housing

Failure to provide treatment of an appropriate nature for any illness or injuries

Abandonment

Animal fighting, blood sports

Pets left in hot cars

Species hoarders

Truth is, the list is endless … Cruelty is everywhere – you don’t even have to look that far these days – it’s everywhere. It appears at times that society cares not for the state of play with animals. We see cruelty in sports, blood sports where upon animals are cruelly treated for another’s’ entertainment – how is that entertaining?

Research Labs, puppy farms, bullfighting, aggressive farming strategies, rodeos, plantation expansions, trophy hunting, fox hunting, badger culling, hare baiting …. The list is endless, never mind those who seek to simply appear to be hell bent on exterminating every living species going in the wild.

We lose an estimated 10,000 species every year through the extinction process! And of course mankind is not innocent to the destruction of species either through its many methods of progression …. Or greed … or both! Nature has her own way of creating extinction of species of course, through asteroid strikes, natural disasters, volcanoes and adverse weather conditions. Mankind has shifted the balance of nature with the slow destruction of the climate and introducing global warming.

Truth is – we do more damage than Nature herself! For as many organisations that endeavour to prevent extinction of species, and work diligently to achieve greater results for both species and the planet, equally there are many more that are determined to totally destroy our planet through habitat destruction, introduction of species not native to the environment and human suburbanisation advancement!

We have whole nations that seemingly appear clueless concerning species destruction and extinctions, never mind cultures and societies that consider animals nothing much short of a hindrance and an existence situated purely for their own hatreds!

In the last two hundred years, mankind has said goodbye to many species – and it is ONLY mankind that is responsible for their demise. But in the last fifty years alone, mankind has upped its destruction of species….

West African Black Rhinoceros [Poaching for Rhino Horn]
• Pyrenean ibex [Over Hunting]
• Passenger Pigeon [Hunting/Trapping]
• Quagga [Hunted to extinction to its’ competing against domestic cattle]
• Pinta Island Tortoise [Hunting/Trapping]
• Caribbean Monk Seal [Hunted to extinction]
• Baiji River Dolphin [Hunted to extinction]
• Javan Tiger [Poaching/Poisoning/Aggressive Farming]

Poaching, hunting, trapping and poisoning await many species still – mankind knows no limits to its evil, or its greed or its strategy for so called progression.

All over the world our animal species are subjected to the utmost cruelty by man, by society, by government – by the people of our planet.

We have a duty to all of the species not just domestics and not just agricultural – we have a responsibility, a duty of care for all of our planets’ species.

People forget one thing – nature doesn’t need us to survive, we need her to live and to survive – and that’s a really big thing in my books.

There’s nothing funny about being dead!

  1. I believe all living things are entitled to an equal right to life on earth. You are very correct in pointing out how we abuse other animals. I’m not really sure how to put an end to it, though.

    1. Good evening Eilene – thanks for commenting.

      The problem is , that like you, l am also at a loss as to how we can convince others that an animals’ life is equal to our own. Conventional thinking, age old conditioning and at times cultural tradtions seem to think that cruelty is either acceptable or not actual cruelty, but right.

      We have a long way to go in what society supposedly thinks is a progressive world.

  2. I know, that’s just it isn’t it, there is no middle ground. I remember reading an article after the war in vietnam about how species emerged from the deep forests and jungles that were thought to be missing and driven into extinction because of the continued bombings. Mother Nature does thankfully have a way of recovery and starting again … however, in vietnaam they were able to recover because something bad had stopped.

    Here, it’s just constant. No let up at all, how does recovery begin without our own extinction.

    1. Yes, they do, we have very few rogue animals – l have known of rogue foxes kill for sport, but usually as a result of a taunting by who?

      That’s right – man.

      1. They certainly don’t ruin the planet like humans are . They are far more in tune with the planet. 🥀 So yes I agree with that. 🌸 🌸 🌸

        1. Very much so Clara, humans are basically killing the only home they have, but selfishly destroying the lives and homes of all the animals in the process.

  3. I often listen to an animal communicator on YouTube. 🥀 She is amazingly accurate and able to really communicate.
    Animals can do this and also communicate not only distress but be able to communicate why they are stressed to her.
    Heartbreaking that they have not got same rights when they are planetary people. 🥀
