Petition Tag - using animals
Im working on a project in my Launguage Arts class and i need to write a letter to a company to inform them that there sales will increase if they stop using animals as testing tools. I need all the info i can get. Please.
Using animals for unnessary experimention is not right. For example the University of Oregon has experiments in which they would sew kittens' eyes shut and were forced to then jump from a HEIGHT onto a platform surrounded by water so they could study the effects of sight deprivation on the brain.
These experiments are not only dense and stupor but they are also not needed. As we now have computers programs capable of being run to answer most of there questions. Using animals for medical experiments should only be used for a last resort.
The animals used in the circus travel many miles every year without the proper care and abuse. Elephants are chained up and forced to stand in their own waste. They are caged in the heat without water. Elephants are trained with abusive methods, they are mentally broken down with brutal beatings some days at a time, they are beaten with clubs and shocked with electric prods, stabbed with sharp hooks and whipped. Baby elephants are taken from their mothers at one year of age and are stripped of their wildlife social bonds. Elephants in the wild live up to 70 years old. They live in herds and have large extended families. They take baths and find shade in hot weather. Large cats are also stripped of their wildlife traits. They can't hunt for food, sleep in the sun, and roam for miles each day. Lets put a stop to this abuse and stop using animals as entertainment in the circus.
