Why Humane Treatment of Animals is Important
Throughout the last several years, comprehension of animals has considerably evolved. Dreadful, nightmarish actions were performed on animals, all in the name of science. A lot of folks believed the animals they tortured really didn’t have any emotions or feelings what-so-ever. The horrid tests they performed on these laboratory creatures were beyond comprehension. The scientists working on the creatures believed the screams and desperate effort to free themselves was all part of a built-in reaction, void of anxiety or pain.
Thank goodness we now understand this to not be totally true. Critters can physically feel pain, just as individuals. Studies have demonstrated, beyond a doubt, that animals truly experience anxiety when set in less than comfortable circumstances. When animals are kept in exactly the same room as the ones about to be butchered, their vital signs radically accelerate. Sadly, additionally they show emotions for the creatures being killed.
The harshness we inflict on creatures that are caged cannot be endured any longer. Living conditions and the habitats of these animals are abominable, even though we understand they greatly suffer. A well known fast food chicken eatery keeps their chickens cuts off their beaks, stacked on top of one another, feeds them steroids and antibiotics, just to name of few of the inhumane acts. Not only do they not care that we understand these matters, they’re smug in their own response to go eat someplace else if it disturbs you.
We have to be proactive and demand more humane treatment of the less fortunate animals who are born into, or adopted into such research labs or food houses. We should advocate for them more like Wayne Pacelle, the president of the Humane society of the United States of America. Simply because an animal will probably be killed, does not grant the folks who home the creatures the right to mistreat them. It’s bad enough they’re there for the reason they’re. In addition, we should require they are put down in the most compassionate manner possible.
Ask a veterinarian you may know of on creature’s aches, pains and emotions are. You might be shocked to find many veterinarians tend not to even spread pain medicine after operation; particularly routine operations, including neutering, spade and cutting the horns off bulls among other things. The more conventional veterinarians will actually laugh in the face of a ‘newer age’ veterinarian who puts the creature’s pain and comfort level under consideration.
If anyone has compassion about an animal’s comfort level, it’d definitely be a veterinarian. Unfortunately, many of the schools teach them to put up a wall to shield themselves from becoming too emotionally attached. They do the same thing in medical and nursing school; they make an effort to educate you to be detached from the patient, so the affectionate tendencies which generally helped you decide to go into this preferred profession, are quickly concealed and covered with all the technical facets of the business.
Individuals need to begin insisting that their pets and farm animals’ vets bring back compassion to the forefront of their chosen profession. It is not too much to ask for humane treatment of animals.
