What are animal rights? It’s the right believed to animals to live free from medical research, hunting and any type of violence. Throughout the world animals are abused and exploited for our own pleasure. They are persecuted for hunting, leaving them dead or wounded. Animal research and experimentation are often being practiced in today’s society, and animals are being tortured and heartlessly killed. Animals are wrongly forced into mistreatment, animal rights should annihilate the problems with animal abuse, hunting, and experimentation.
All animals should have the right to roam freely without being pursued and killed. The damage that hunting inflicts on animals are terrible-the noise, fear, and the constant chase. This horrific hobby is

Hunting is often called a “sport,” to camouflage a cruel, and needless killing spree. The annual death toll in the U.S. includes 42 million mourning doves, 30 million squirrels, 28 million quail, 25 million rabbits, 6 million deer, and thousands of helpless animals (“Anti-Hunting”). Wildlife population is an excuse for killing-hunting, trapping and fishing for entertainment. In deed starvation and disease are unfortunate, but it’s nature’s way of keeping the strong alive.

Animals are exposed to stress, constant pain, and some animals even develop neurotic behaviors such incessantly spinning in circles, pulling out their own hair and even biting their own skin (PETA). They are absolutely terrified, they shake in fear whenever someone walks past their cages, and their blood pressure spikes drastically (PETA). After their miserable lives of endless pain, almost all of them are killed.
