Rationale
The topic I found most interesting to research is animal cruelty. I chose this topic because i want to get more knowledge about why people tend to hurt animals and what their purpose is. Every day in our community I see all types of animals going through torture and suffering. I want to understand why people think it is ok to kill or hurt an animal for their benefit. Why would someone want an animal part as a souvenir when they can just make the species larger? Do they gain popularity? Does is somehow make them richer? This problem has been going on all around the globe. Animals in Africa, South America, and other countries are now going extinct because people think it is ok to capture and tame or search and destroy them.

Norway, India, and Israel are all anti animal testing places. There are countries that are bearly looking into animal testing and realizing how cruel and unfair it is to test on animals and make them suffer. Places like the U.S, New Zealand, and Australia are all places late to act for animals and are in fact very popular hunting grounds. This means that people have license to kill and hunt not just for survival but for fun and entertainment. These countries are trying to set a ban for animal testing but haven’t really enforced it. According to GreenPlanet.org, “‘European Union regulators announced a ban on the import and sale of cosmetics containing ingredients tested on animals and to pledge more efforts to push other parts of the world, like China, to accept alternatives’” (Kantamneni). In Vasant Kunj, India, there has been more animal abuse cases filed than any other country in the middle east. It is one of the few states who has also illegalized animal testing and animal trade cosmetics. To me this is very confusing because they banned animal testing but still abuse all of their animals. The state banned animal trade and testing back in 2014. To this day it is very cruel to their stray animals and birds, they feed them poisoned water or just beat them in public. “Every day, 150 cases are filed in Delhi where someone has poisoned the neighbour 's dog, mixed harmful chemicals in drinking water meant for pigeons. Around 300 cases are not registered with the police”(Gauri Maulekhi). This is still unacceptable because animals are still being abused and killed. How is a country going to illegalize animal testing and still have the highest animal abuse case in the world. This shows that countries only want to stop something temporarily or for media

    Animals test is very cruel the reward is little to nothing but what you know will happen is animals will die. What’s so speical about use compared to animals were all living things and people need to respect that. Critics may argue that animal testing can have a positive effect, while it might be true that it can work but still the statistics show that there are more negative things on animal testing then positive things. How would you feel if your life was to get tested and suffer all your life for nothing that doesn’t mean anything to you. For those reasons I think that animal testing should be illegal, so let’s stand up for the animals and put an end to animal…

    While animals are getting tested from the scientists the animals are getting tortured and their skin gets irritated by the products that makes animals die from the despair they get put through. Companies should change the way they are going to test out their products to not put animals into an everyday life situation of getting tortured. Even though, there is proof that the United States or any other country does not require scientists or any other type of company to test on animals. Every animal has rights just as a human being's do which that applies to everyone is why Europe has stopped testing on animals since 2009 from being tested by cosmetics, if a person kills an animal for example buffalo, deer, goat, etc... without some type of permission that person can go to prison or get a fine for…

Scientists carry out barbaric acts on millions of involuntary animals in the name of research all over the world. The defenseless animals are mistreated, tortured and killed in an inhumane way. “The animals are confined to cages, waiting for the torture to begin.…
