Is animal testing same as animal cruelty?
Animal cruelty is when an animal most of the time defense less is hurt and hit for no reason just because the person wanted to. This is bad because hurting an animal with no power to defend itself is mest up and some people associate this with animal testing since scientist use defenseless animals to conduct their tests and to not get harmed by the animals. There is a constant dispute whether using animals is mest up or it’s good so that we can study and learn from desises to later have cures for those diseases. Although scientist conduct test with animals with diseases it doesn’t mean they are being treated mest up. Scientist make sure that the animals have the best environment possible so that they can live happily in their home. People throw all the heat to scientist about treating animals unfairly when food companies that contain live animals like chicken or cows have their animals in horrible conditions and giving them unhealthy drugs so that they can either have more meat or so that chickens can lay more eggs.
In conclusion I believe that animal testing is not the same as animal cruelty, simply because scientist working with animals don’t abuse animals and make sure they live a happy life while other companies treat their animal harshly.
