The question I have is why animal cruelty still exists. For years now I have been vegetarian because I have learned the horrible conditions animals have to suffer to be used for human demands. If you do it correctly, there is no need to be eating meat or consuming any dairy products. I also follow a cruelty free lifestyle by using all shower, hair, body, and beauty products that are 100% cruelty free (no animal testing).
I know this sounds very picky and I sound like I am very wealthy, but neither are true. I just love animals so much that I want to help as much as I can. People seem to treat animals like they aren’t equal to us, but they are. We are no better than any living thing. This why I believe that people think it’s okay to mistreat animals. They think it’s okay because they think an animal’s life can’t mean as much as a human life. I also believe they think this because the animal is being used for human gain.
Animal cruelty does not need to exist for humans to live a “fulfilled” life, and the mistreatment of these animals is inhumane. We need to treat all living things as one of our own and not abuse them or kill them for no reason. We are lowering their populations at alarming rates, and the loss of these animals are going to destroy our ecosystem and the world will crumble with these losses. Abusing animals is social justice issue because of their importance, and how they are just as important as humans.
