Animals Have Rights Too

Every living being has a right to live. God has created enough resources on this planet to feed and accommodate all the beings simultaneously. No one has the right to control or dominate anyone else’s life or resources for that matter. Animals are a vital part of our ecological system and have complete rights to live and eat freely. There is a wide debate across the world for protecting animal rights and many nonprofit organizations work to save the animals from starving, brutality, hitting, or overload of work. These organizations also implement plans and build safer environments for species that are endangered.

There are many different kinds of animals, some of them are easy to tame and keep as pets while others are man-eaters and can only survive in the wild. There are people in the world who have a passion for the wild life and they go after them to find the animals and even capture them to keep them as a pet. However, these animals only can fit in their natural habitat and will have irregular sleep and eating patterns if they are separated from their home. Many movies and documentaries have promoted this theme to help people realize that animals have rights too. They are living beings like us and have emotions and feelings. The only difference between a man and an animal is the wisdom. The rest goes same for both. They feel what we feel. They can feel pain, fear, hunger, anger, thirst, joy, deserted and playfulness. Many different religions, including the Christianity, lay emphasis on taking care of the animals and treating them gently. Even if you are supposed to use them for work like hunting, transportation, food, and safety, you should take proper care of them. Feed them well and allow them a proper place for shelter. It is never okay to beat them in any circumstances. In many tribes and areas, it is a common practice to mark the animals with a certain initial to show that they belong to a certain owner. This is quite cruel practice and should be banned. There are alternatives to show ownership such as tags, collars etc.

Animals are a beautiful creation of the nature and an important part of our ecological system. They should be treated with love and care. We should not beat them or deprive them of food under any circumstances.
