Animal Cruelty February 24, 2012

I think that animal cruelty is very wrong  chimps are very close too human and if  they  won’t do it on humans then they shouldnt do it on chimps. I am 100% against animal testing  on chimps because of how much their like us . Thing’s need to be tested and I get that but I would rather them do it on animals that have million and millions of them. For example flies because flies don’t do anything good for us and   they pests. I think what they did to all those  chimps was really wrong and it shouldnt have happened . When they were planning this experiment they should have picked a different animal  and an animal that none cares about , lots of people care about chimps. I don’t know how any one could  hurt those animals when they are so cute and human like . There are no other animal on  the world that have thumbs’ that I can think of.

Today there are only two countries that allow animal testing and that’s the United States and Gabon. Which  they should be ashamed at what they are doing. chimps reasearch  started  with psychologist Robert M. Yerkes in the 1920s. Robert M. Yerkes  was interested in learning more about  chimps   behavior because of  relationship to humans. But in the 1940s, the research at Yerkes Primate Research Center changed from relationship with humans too medical testing,  on chimpanzees.Experiments on chimps were banned in Britain in 1998  because the people of britain didn’t want chimps being tested. Most of the people are mad about what had happened to the chimps, other are happy  that they did it on animals instead of doing it on humans  because a lot of humans would have died. I think no matter what you do it on something is always going to die.

I think that what they did and the horrific pictures of the chimps that got tested is so sad , there is probably lots of chimps that didn’t get tested and lived a normal life but there are also lots of chimps that didn’t  live. I’m not exactly sure if chimps still get tested this year but if they do somebody  need s to  stop the companies and building that are doing this to the animals and think about  it . I probably buy lots of things that were tested on chimps and sure I feel bad about it but I’m still going to use choose products but i think that they could have been tested on something else. This is what I think about animal cruelty on chimps and any other animal. Most people are against animal testing but few are for it.

There are lots of people  in the world that care  for testing on animals for example: Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals,
and the answer is: “Because the animals are like us.” Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is:”Because the animals are not like us.”

    Hey Cassidy!
    I definitely agree with you that animal testing is wrong to do, especially on chimps. They are our closest relatives & we would never do that to a human! I agree with you that yes, these things need to be tested, but should not be tested on chimps. I really liked the last part of your blog. “Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: “Because the animals are like us.” Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: ”Because the animals are not like us”. They need to make up their minds! I hope that this gets stopped everywhere. Great post! 🙂 -Alyssa.
