  • ANIMAL RIGHTS
    • HOW HUMANS EXPLOIT ANIMALS (TREAT BADLY)
      • in sports - animals are forced to fight or do things they wouldn't naturally do e.g. bull fighting, greyhound racing, dog fighting, badger baiting
      • hunting - when we chase and kill animals for food or fur or sport. people have different views on this
      • experimentation - when animals are tested on in science labs to check if products for humans are good. some think it is cruel even though it is for the greater good and there are other alternatives. it doesn't always work because animals and humans can react differently to things!
      • zoos - where animals are kept in enclosures for people to look at. zoos in richer countries try to re-create natural conditions but they are often cadged at night
      • genetic modification - where the DNA from an animal is taken and it is changed e.g. so it can be used as a heart transplant for humans
      • fur trade - killing animals for their fur (sometimes they are bred for this) + we don't need the fur
      • ivory trade - ivory comes form elephants which are killed for their tuscs and used to make luxury itens such as piano keys- poaching elephants could cause them to become extinct
    • HOW HUMANS USE ANIMALS TO HELP THEM
      • As companions e.g. as pets - almost 50% of hoseholds have pets and are seen as frineds/companions
      • as blind dogs, police dogs, sniffer dogs, hearing dogs, helps the disabled,
      • transport: camels, huscies, horses
      • farming- some issues with this are that farmers don't care for their animals and when farming is for a profit business
