The influence and treatment of animals

For decades now, animals have had a great impact on human life. Unfortunately, the history of humankind has shown that we have been using them for many purposes.  In most cases, those purposes haven’t been so noble. We often forget that animals have feelings too and we tend to neglect them and mistreat them. To better understand their nature and human – animal bond, we need to recognize their influence and how are we are treating them in return.

Benefits of animals

Having a pet or taking care of an animal is on the best feelings in the world and only pet owners will know what we are talking about. It is one of the main reasons why many people and organizations advocate for animals’ welfare. Animals have an extraordinary ability to boost up your mood in a second and in many cases, they are used as a therapeutic mean with sick patients. They just evoke happiness every time we set our eyes on them. If we engage them in family life, they will have a great impact on children development and teach them to have a sympathy and love.

In many cases, we have seen people who tamed wild animals and their bond became even stronger. People became their saviors and opened shelters for many endangered species. The most important question of all, why can people tame wild animals, but in so many other cases, they mistreat them and abuse them. It depends on a person and his ability to recognize the structure of animals and how great impact they have on our life.

Treatment of animals

In modern society, every state has formed a law to protect the animals, but they have never been less protected. We have been witnesses how animals have need used for clinical research in many laboratories around the world. In Africa, how many elephants have been killed because of the ivory? So many, they are now threatening to become an endangered species. Animals are being killed or abused around the world, and we can’t do anything to stop that. They have their unique role, and without them, our ecosystem wouldn’t exist, we just fail to recognize that.

Destruction of habitats

It has been the main concern of many zoologists for several decades now. The animals are losing their habitats and occupying the ecosystems which are endangering them and humans. Because of fear, people either kills them or let them take their territory.  The biggest example is the Everglades swamps where Burmese pythons and alligators have taken then the supremacy over this part of the land. In this case, on only animals are endangered, but also humans’ life. One man leading Brentwood real estate agent, set up a great example, by opening a shelter for endangered animals to protect them.

Under the influence of industrialization and capitalism, we have forgotten to take care of nature and animals which live in it. We have destroyed their natural habitats and forced them to move. If we don’t pay attention to our actions animals might be in great danger in the following years
