Top Ten Things Relating to Animal Rights That Should Happen by 2021

ToptenPizza

The Top Ten

1 Zoos, circuses, marine parks, etc are shut down

A lot of zoos are great at caring for their animals. Zoos are great for research, for conserving animal populations, for donations to the natural world, and for giving people the experience of seeing and learning about animals around the world. Cruel zoos usually are and should be shut down. The zoo where I live keeps injured animals and also releases its alligators to a nature reserve in Florida when they get too big for the tank. Not all zoos are cruel. Keep them. - GhostBird

Whoever made this list had good intentions but is acting like a die-hard environmentalist. Not all of the aforementioned things are like this. Many of them actually have good intentions, but the media manipulates you into believing that everyone who does it is bad. No wonder I support welfare, not rights. Animals are important, yes, but more important than humans? No. - Swellow

Zoos- no beatings, but captivity causes them to get mental disorders, and are put under stress.

Circus- the animals are beaten to perform, not to mention the added affects of captivity, and when they are too old to perform, they are sent to research labs

Marine parks- the whales aren't beaten, but they are still kept in captivity and not in their natural enviorment, also they are starved to perform - ToptenPizza

Not all zoos, circuses, and marine parks are like this. You are overgeneralizing these because there are plenty of zoos and things like that who treat the animals with respect. - RiverClanRocks

I DESPISE circuses with a hot fiery steaming passion. Animal cruelty is HORRIBLE. - PeeledBanana

2 Wearing fur becomes punishable by a long painful death

This is the kind of radical stuff that makes people hate activists. Sorry, but this is insane. - keycha1n

A lot of free range isn't even real. They let the chickens out to a little square of grass for two weeks and slap the free-range sticker on the package. I personally, have never tasted any sort of positive difference between organic, free range, or local product compared to the store. - keycha1n

This shouldn't be here. Just jail for a year. I know it's a death of an animal and that you are an animal lover, but what if your best friend wore fur in 2021? Would you want her to die? - AnonymousChick

Wearing fur is putting the dead animal's fur to good use, PETA retards. - LordDovahkiin

3 Animal testing is illegal

Animal testing sucks. Though most vaccines and medicines we use SAFELY is a product of that. A necessary evil, maybe. As for vitro method, I don't think that would work (at least in case of testing of vaccines). - Kiteretsunu

As long as it isn't fatal

There are so many alternatives, such as the vitro method which uses state of the art technology to mimick human organs, and is much more accurate. I also feel LIVES aren't work MASCARA - ToptenPizza

Make it illegal please! If anything, I care more about a puppy than a baby (sorry:() - Destroyar4699

4 All animals producing eggs, milk etc must be free range

I've seen disturbing and sad videos on YouTube about meat industry cruelty. Piglets were getting castrated, tails docked, and their teeth shredded off without painkillers alive, lambs were getting killed at 7 weeks of age by gunshot or neck stabbing alive (no painkillers). Calves were being kidnapped from their mothers after a day of birth and male calves would be bloody killed and females would be chained, lots of more cruel things are happening too so all you cruel human beings could enjoy eating meat. - PeeledBanana

Free range tastes better in my opinion. Ben and Jerry's is free range and some of the best ice cream ever. - ToptenPizza

If this was a new law, it would actually be hard to survive.

Ben and Jerry's is my favorite too

5 Puppy mills are shut down

Look at my list to adopt and not shop and you'll see why these puppy hells are terrible. - ToptenPizza

This I agree with. No animal should have to live in a condition like this. - RiverClanRocks

Agreed - Destroyar4699

Agreed. - Swellow

6 Hunting as a sport is illegal

I disagree. Hunting is needed to avoid over population. I HATE people who hunt endangered animals or people who just leave the bodies for no reason.

Hunting isn't very good, but I would like to discourage it. But poaching is cruel and completely against the rules.

If people still want to eat meat they should stop being lazy @$$3$ and get a gun and shoot a deer, because that is ok, they are getting it more humanely, but just shooting a beautaful, endangered tiger for sport is terrible, I mean, what did he do to deserve the death penalty? Lets send them to North Korean torture camps! - ToptenPizza

I absolutely DESPISE sport hunting in every possible way, it's basically killing animals for fun. - PeeledBanana

7 Attacking an animal unprovoked becomes punishable to going to a North Korean torture camp

Yes, animal abuse is a horrible, devastating thing and I really wish that it would stop but, again, you're crossing the line. I understand: by 2021, you want people to be punished for attacking an animal. But since you wanna be that radical, we must also send them to North Korea I guess and torture. Hope Kin Jung Un will be welcoming to his new visitors once 2021 comes around.

Haha! Sorry, this is ridiculous. Let's see a law like this get passed. This is brutal, extreme, and just a little concerning. So it's not okay to hurt animals but it's okay to horribly torture and kill people? Animal abuse is terrible and should be stopped, but this...

I heard about some kids who put firecrackers into a dogs mouth and taped it shut. When I hereabout that I want them to be beaten senseless. They are absolute garbage. - SammySpore

It's wrong, but certainly not bad enough for a North Korean labor camp. - LordDovahkiin

8 Slaughter houses are shut down

I have no problem with eating meat. I DO have a problem with how we aquire it. Which was why I felt alright about eating my pet chickens; I'd given them a good, full life and they were killed in the best way possible (they tasted awful, but that's irrelevant). I'm not okay with eating meat that comes from slaughterhouses because I don't believe in supporting the companies that torture animals for a living. I refuse to give them business. However, its utterly impossible to provide meat for the whole human population through local farms. So if you want to eat meat without slaughterhouses, I'm not sure what half of the world would do. - keycha1n

I think that a lot of slaughterhouses are run poorly, cruelly, and messily, which causes unnecessary pain to the animals. But we can't shut down all slaughterhouses; we literally can't. What would the world do to get meat? 80% of the world is too lazy, fat, tender-hearted or inexperienced to hunt down and kill their own food. What are we going to do, turn cows and sheep loose in the wild to wreak havoc on native species? I think the cruelty in slaughterhouses should be stopped, for sure. It's possible to get meat in a humane, painless way.

Why do people think eating meat is WRONG? So, here is slaughterhouse: animal dies long painful death. Here is hunting: pick a deer that is going to die anyway, shoot it and eat it. Sure, we could shut down slaughter houses, but we would have 2 hunt instead

Because before its death, at least the deer lived its life of freedom. - Kiteretsunu

Slaughter houses are horrible places for these poor animals, calves are kidnapped, lambs are neck-stabbed, piglets are castrated and forced to live in their own sh**. Lots and lots of more horrible things happen there. - PeeledBanana

9 Putting animals in cages where they can't move is illegal

I count that as captivity, cages should be illegal for dogs, especially the small ones. - ToptenPizza

I agree with main idea, but I don't think all cages should be banned. What if an animal is in a cage just to go to the vet? - RalphBob

Yes, unless you are taking them to a vet in a car. They can be dangerous in there. - EliHbk

This definitely should be illegal. All animals deserve freedom. - PeeledBanana

Ok, for torture or poaching it's illegal. Now putting your dog in a kennel while going somewhere is ok if absolutely necessary and for a short amount of time - Destroyar4699

10 Using animal bodies as decorations is illegal

Once I was in Oregon with my cousins for vacation a few years ago and where we all slept, there was a stuffed deer head. I felt like crying a bit. - AnonymousChick

How is this an animal right? The animal's already dead. You can't infringe on peoples' rights to decorate their own private property however they want. - GhostBird

Animal decorations were fairly popular during the nineteenth and early 20th century. Wow! And we say we do things humanely. - Kiteretsunu

There is nothing wrong with decorating your home with animal bodies, like mounting a head on a rack. - LordDovahkiin

The Contenders

11 PETA shuts down

PETA has made mockery of animal rights which what should have been serious matter. They even went so low as to start a petition to ban Pokemon because it promoted animal abuse. Wow?!? Really? I think Pokemon actually teaches us to be kind to animals. It's just the opposite. - Kiteretsunu

The Pokemon protests are just ridiculous in my opinion. Who cares about some fictional characters with no soul/emotion when REAL animals are suffering. I think the problem PETA has with Pokémon is it is sort of like dog fights, but it's not. The Pokemons are treated well and comforted if lost but in dog fights they are treated brutally and beaten badly if lost. - ToptenPizza

If this happened there would be no more horrible Pokemon spoofs! YES! - RiverClanRocks

And have we mentioned that most of the pets that go through PETA's doors are euthanized for fun?!

Yes. Yes it should. Most of the items on this list I disagree with, but this I do agree with. - LordDovahkiin

12 Abusing Animals becomes punishable by being imprisoned for life and being forced to listen to SpongeBob's laugh on a loop.

This is even more radical and overboard than my punishments, good work. - ToptenPizza

I would rather do that than go to jail.

I agree. Animal cruelty is horrible. - PeeledBanana

13 Feral cats are hunted

Millions upon millions of birds are killed each year by feral cats, and the cats shouldn't be there. Yes, cats should have rights, but when they're infringing on the rights of species that are native, their rights become lesser than that of the natives. People need to stop thinking of feral cats as just roaming-free wild pets that should be loved and not harmed, and instead think of them as a harmful pest species. Wildlife have rights, too. Cats have been responsible for many animal extinctions. - GhostBird

There are populations of 30 so cats who hang around on people's property sometimes, and have no food, these need to be taken to shelters so they don't starve or annoy old people with guns. - EliHbk

What horrible sick ass put this here?! Feral cats are only following their instinct. They are carnivores. Anyone who hates feral cats is an animal hater.

14 Polar bears, pandas, and rhinos can't be hunted. Fine 50,000 dollars

Add all big cats to this list and make the penalty DEATH. Do it now because these animals will all be extinct by 2021!

Too serious of a fine

Sorry! This goes against the 8th amendment

THEY R CUTE

15 Elephants shouldn't be hunted for anything

I hope all poachers die of a slow and painful death! - PeeledBanana

Screw the elephant hunters

Since elephants w/ larger tusks are hunted the process of selective breeding or whatever will cause elephants to have no tusks eventually, apparently. - EliHbk

I HATE THIS! :(

16 Goldfish bowls should be banned

Contrary to popular belief, a goldfish bowl is very cruel and it is animal abuse. Goldfish need at least 30 gallons (per fish) as they can grow a lot. Additionally, goldfish produce a lot of waste, which in turns worsens the water quality pretty quickly. A small bowl will make the water horribly bad for the poor animal living inside of it. Goldfish are also very intelligent fish and they DO NOT have a 3 second memory. People should do their research before the purchase of any animal.

It's sad how the goldfish barely get any space at all. - PeeledBanana

17 Big cats can't be killed for fur

Stupid reason to kill an innocent animal.

18 Kitten mills are shut down

They are just every bit as terrifying as puppy mills!

19 All bad dog/cat food will be off the shelves

All dog food with lots of grains and no meat (like Beneful) gets sick dogs & cats. Spend the few extra dollars on a good fur baby food. Also make sure to get bad grocery store brands off the shelf.
