If you think of it like I do, an animal is like a baby, or a human and they deserve to be treated as humans do. If we keep abusing animals and using them for our own selfish reasons, the attitudes of the animals will change through time. They won’t be as loving and fun. If it gets out of hand, there is the possibility of extinction. Why do people do it? People tend to do it for their own selfish reasons. It’s proven that it makes them feel powerful, and or they

There are intelligent animals who feel love, sorrow, pain, fear, happiness… the only thing they are incapable of feeling, or understanding, is hate. I guess they have us for that.

Killing stands for the killer taking others’ life, but it is not the will of the person who is killed. Some people believe that it is good to help people relief themselves of pain, and do not need to suffer anymore. Some people would think euthanasia is a murder. H
