    It’s past overdue that animals continue to be used as a form of entertainment. Circuses, rodeos, bullfighting, dog fights, zoos? Why do some people continue to exploit them for personal enjoyment, when there are plenty of cruelty-free options available instead? It’s about time these events died off, people can find alternate forms of entertainment nowadays.

    One I truly beleive that PETA give the animals a voice. I think regulating slaughter practices that are enforced are truly needed and PETA does a great job in blowing the whistle. There are cruels acts done every day and because of PETA we are aware.

    eating animals. animals torment. other Erdlings suppress. think that if one makes has to do also does. everyone must live the same right in the freedome and in the luck. Nobody is fewer value. Where the justice? There were not it ever. what´s so beautiful at the animal eat? nobody think what he actually make. If more children and young people decide to become vegetarian and vegan, then perhaps in the future no more animals are killed and tormented. Hopefully the situation in the world changes. GO VEGAN sorry my english is bad.

    Disection! This is one of the worse things we could possibly have in this world! It not only teaches students how an animal works but it allows them to belive that its ok to breed animals just to kill them for educational purposes. Also once the class massacre is over it’s still not over! Some teachers allow the students to proceed with mutilating the poor animals bodies! they’re allowed to crack their sckulls, hack off their limbs or continue to rearrange their organs. Yet if we do this with another human being we’ed be arrested, prosecuted, and thrown in jail either for life or till its time to be put to death. Why do we even still use the old school method of disection anymore anyways? Don’t we have computer programs with this kind of stuff now? Anyways I say lets cut disection out of our schools! Slaughter houses! Slaughter houses are the kind of place where those students that really enjoyed their Biology and Anatomy classes go to when they decide to “disect” animals for the rest of their lives. They are the reason why most factories still kill the animals in such a inhumane manner. If not for them (and the fact that food companies are such cheap a**es) we’d have switched to a less painful and gory method by now.

    Their are many changes that need to be made for animals, starting most obviously with ridding the world of factory farms. Cage reared eggs are a disgrace, while the the veal industry is founded on torturing baby cows. As we all know, these are only two of the many unjust and inhumane aspects of factory farms, but they are two topics that are important in animal rights because they are approachable for non-vegetarian/vegans. I find it very difficult to get people to engage in discussion about the cruelty of factory farms and of meat production, mainly because people do not want to face the guilt when they consume their next chicken breast. But as we have seen from the famous PETA anti-fur adds, there are certain animal rights topics, fur being the exemplary one, that the majority of people are happy to talk about. Rappers like Waka Flocka and basketball star Amare Stoudamire have spoken out against fur farms for PETA. I believe that the next steps to get the general public more engaged in animal rights is to talk about cage reared eggs and veal. When the average non-vegetarian learns about the horrifying condition of cage reared hens, many of them will change over and start buying free-range eggs. I have personally gotten people to change. Also, many people have a soft spot for babies, so when people hear about the way that baby calves are tied up and hardly get to move their entire lives so that they can become veal, many people are sympathetic and will choose to avoid veal. I think that these two issues are very important and need to be campaigned for, because sometimes people will not respond to being told that their piece of chicken or steak was produced unethically, to them it is just part of the natural cycle, but more people are disturbed by hearing that their eggs were produced by hens who were cramped 5 per cage and didn’t even have room to stretch. I know that PETA does not support cage-free eggs, but rather no eggs at all. I too am a vegan and I refrain from eggs, but I just think that getting people to be aware of animal issues in general is important, and pushing against cage-reared eggs and veal is a great way to get people in the door.

    Breeding and classroom disections. Why has breeding not been outlawed yet?! I have been writing the Kansas City Newspaper to stop running ads from breeders but I’m getting nowhere. Every designer pet bought from a breeder keeps a homeless animal on the streets or worse – euthanized. Also, classroom disections. I just started working at a high school and found out they’re disecting cats now. CATS! How does this help kids learn science?

    animal cruelty laws should cover all animals. vivisection and cruel and sadistic junkscience non-experiments should end. all circuses should be shut down post haste. it should bee against the law to eat meat and feed diary to your children.

    The most overdue change is for stores to stop selling cats and dogs. People should adopt.

    Longest overdue for animals is the obvious. They aren’t animals they are obviously living creatures on this planet as we are. What makes people think they are below and don’t deserve to be treated as we treat other humans? Animals are our friends and they play a significant role in the way we live. They help the earth and they help us. Animals aren’t trash and aren’t suppose to be held up in tight spaces, i wonder how it would feel for humans to be put in small cages and see it as being acceptable??? Animals are GODS creatures as we are and deserve a lot more attention than some things we value in life. We need to find so called “humane society’s” that are suppose to save animals. We need to step up as humans and start looking at what we care about and time for not only in the United States but all around the world to make laws that animals deserve, RESPECT!!!. IT IS ABOUT TIME THEY DESERVE IT!!!!

    We need take a stand against puppy mills and make it illegal for pet stores to sell animals.
