Animal Cruelty

In My Letter, I explain how harsh, animal cruelty is,and what we can do to solve it.

Dear Future President,

I’m writing to you because I believe that our animals deserve more respect here, in the United States. Animals are abused, used in experimental labs, and forced to fight to their deaths. This is completely wrong. Why are animals being treated like garbage, while the majority of people living in the U.S. have a roof over their heads, and a great supply of food and water? Animals are just as important as humans. Animals deserve rights, so let’s show some respect for our furry friends!

About 1 million animals are abused and killed each year. That is a lot! Animal abuse is the main reason I am writing to you, mainly because it just plain cruel. Usually people abuse and kill animals because of either for money or because they have some sort of mental issue or stuff like that. We CANNOT put animals into the wrong hands! It is not good for the pet or the human. Some ways we can stop this are just meeting the person. Some pets are automatically given to an owner, without even signing papers of some sort. This can make it a lot easier for someone to abuse and hurt an animal. This particular subject deserves a lot of attention.

Some people are poachers, and kill animals for tusks, teeth, fur, etc. They are sometimes given a reward for doing such things. Poaching is wrong. Did you know that every 15 minutes, an elephant is slaughtered and poached? That is way too many elephants being killed! 56 billion animals are already getting killed for our consumption. 1 million animals are killed in labs each year, and 4 to 5 million animals die in shelters every year. It all adds up to no good. And that is why I believe that this is important and should be addressed.

As you can see, animal cruelty is a major issue in our country and needs a lot of attention in order to be resolved. I hope that you can put some time into the billions of animals that die each year, and I thank you for trying to make our country a better place, especially with everything that is going on in the U.S. right now.
