Animals for Entertainment

Animals for Entertainment

Non-human animals have been used throughout history for purposes of entertainment. In a new technological era, the ways animals can be exploited only seem to be increasing. Animals are kept in confinement in unnatural habitats, fed unnatural diets, are unable to exercise – or the other extreme, forced to over-exert themselves and are trained to do unnatural acts under threat of harm.

Key areas of concern are:

 

-horse racing

-greyhound racing

-circuses

-rodeos

-“sport” or “game” fishing

-deer hunting

-duck shooting

-zoos and animals in captivity
