Transcript of Animal Cruelty

Topics discussed:

1. Animals used for human entertainment
2. Animals domestically abused
3. Animals produced specifically for human consumption
4. Contemporary issue: the culling of sharks
5. Arsing question: ‘why do people care/don’t care about this issue?’

Thesis statement:

The indifferent attitude society has towards animal cruelty is based on the belief that all animals are inferior to humans.

Animal cruelty is a behavior repetitively and proactively by an individual with the deliberate intention of causing harm to an animal with the under-standing that the animal is motivated to avoid that harm.

Some images included within this presentation may cause some offense – several images may be explicit. The reason for this is to get our overall statement across to our audience, and convince them to become self-aware of this issue.

Animal Rights
Animals feel pain, pleasure, fear, frustration, loneliness, and motherly love.

Human beings feel this too. Can you see the comparison?

- Not only sharks gets caught.
Jeff Hansen, Sea Shepherd
: We can survive without surfing but we can’t survive without sharks in our ocean. It is very disappointing, because surfers are meant to be known as the caretakers of the ocean. They understand the marine environment, they understand the importance of biodiversity. The surfers who are calling for this are not real surfers.
Camel, veteran West Coast surfer*
: I don’t want to sound like an idiot who wants a total cull. We are in their territory. But, there are a lot of sharks around and we should cull some of the great whites, especially the big ones that come into and hang around swimming and surfing spots.
Chris Ross:
It’s easy to say whatever you want about protecting sharks if you don’t go in the ocean everyday. I just think there’s always gonna be two sides to the story. A few people who don’t spend much time in the ocean seem to be having a lot of a say. It’s hard for them to tell us it’s not our territory to go swimming in.

Early Exposure
OK, not OK
Humans and Animals
Although social, political and cultural values are always changing. Studies have conclusively shown that humans view themselves as special compared to animals. Animals can be seen as expendable within reason to human priorities including industry, recreation and entertainment.
