Animal abuse is wrong!!!!

Animal abuse should be illegal.

Dear future President:

I am a middle school student at a school located in Tucson, AZ. Our teacher at our school gave us an assignment to write a letter to the future president. So my assertion is that we need to stop animal abuse because, over 56 billion farmed animals are killed every year by humans. These shocking figures do not even include fish and other sea creatures whose deaths are so great they are only measured in tonnes.

According to Animal Testing Pro and Con many animals are being killed. And that just farm animals that are just killed every year. But can you imagine how many animals not just farm are killed each year. That’s a lot. Also, from Animal Testing Pro and Con website this is how many animals are being killed for scientific experiments: “The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) reported in 2010 that 97,123 animals suffered pain during experiments while being given no anesthesia for relief, including 1,395 primates, 5,996 rabbits, 33,652 guinea pigs, and 48,015 hamsters.” and when you add all that up it is 186181.

Also according to Inquisitr and Mirror website there was a 14 year old girl who posted a video of her ripping out a cat’s heart and nailing a poor innocent dog to a wall. How would you feel if that girl did that to your animal you would be upset; so that is why it is very important we should stop animal abuse. So if you care about animals as I do than you would make sure animal abuse and animal testing is illegal so than we could stop it from happening again.

If I was you I would make sure that animal abuse and animal testing would be stop immediately. Also, did you know that ¨Horses bound for slaughter (who may include pregnant mares, foals and horses who are injured or blind) are commonly shipped for more than 24 hours at a time in crowded trucks without food, water or rest. The methods used to kill horses rarely result in quick, painless deaths for these animals and sometimes they even remain conscious during dismemberment.¨ are being killed according Aspca website. Also according to Aspca website ¨In a puppy mill, dogs are often kept in cages with wire flooring that injures their paws and legs—and it is not unusual for cages to be stacked in columns. When female breeding dogs reach a point of physical depletion and can no longer reproduce, they are often killed.¨. I mean who kills a mother when she can’t reproduce anymore puppies. I would you know what I mean. So in my defence I would stop this right now when you read this.

In closing, I believe that animal abuse is wrong and mess up. If you have read everything and not scan it than you would know that if you don’t make animal abuse illegal than you are crushing a 12 year-old girl who can’t have a pet because of my mother’s job. So if I was you I would make sure animal abuse is illegal. So I hope you understand that animal abuse is not right. Thank you for reading this.
