Just the thought of keeping animals in a small cage is just depressing.I think you really brought out a new perspective in circus…. the dark side of it. When people go to these events they never consider about the animals living conditions all people care about is the tricks. I think that we need to spread more awareness.
I like how you left evidence to prove your claim right. I agree with you that everyone should stop this now because of all the abuse that has been going around animals is just not right. Keep up the good work.
I agree with you that animals have rights just like us. I think that animals have rights just like us because they are alive and deserve to be treated with care. Like how you said in your article that animals could be abused and locked in cages and that it isn’t fair for them and they need to be treated with care and protected. In my life i don’t have any pets but I do care for animals. If they are hurt or trapped I would feel bad. In my opinion I don’t think that animals should be kept in cages and some people don’t care if an animal dies and they don’t think that animals experience pain.
I might be late to this party, but I think that animals are incapable of having rights. I say this because they don’t know any better and can’t understand what is or isn’t animal mistreatment. Most people treat their animals with care, and I think that instead of having activists or trying to encourage people to change their lifestyle to convenience a few animals, we should instead work on regulating how people treat animals.
I agree with you animals should not and cannot be used as entertainment. I never have understood the point of zoos, circuses, dog fights, cockfighting, etc. The animals that are in zoos and circuses are meant to be in the wild, not stared at through cages or watched doing tricks. The dogs or chickens in those fights are literally torn to shreds by each other and fight to the death. Like the San Francisco Board of Governors I think that all states need to vote “ prohibit the use of wild and excotic animals for entertainment.”
Exact minimum wage in the U.S does differ from state to state, but nationally there is a basic median that everyone must follow. Even when minimum wage is higher in one state, that state usually have higher taxes and prices on goods. Raising the minimum wage would disturb the economy, including the need to raise prices.
This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
