ACBS 160D: should animals be hunted: No plagiarism

should animals be hunted 1. Should animals be used in medical research (e.g., research on cancer)? 2. Should animals be kept in factory farms for human consumption? 3. Should it matter how animals are housed and treated if they are going to be killed for consumption later? (e.g., Should it matter how animals are treated in slaughterhouses before they are killed for consumption? Should it matter how chickens or pigs are kept in factory farms if they are going to be killed for meat? ) 4. Should wildlife protection have a higher priority than commercial interests (e.g., Should the pygmy owl have a higher priority than the development of housing and businesses around Tucson? Should wildlife be protected and hinder logging or oil pipelines?) 5. Should animals be kept for human food consumption (i.e., should humans eat other animals)? 6. Should animals be kept in zoos or aquaria? 7. Should animals be used in circuses? 8. Should horses be used for the sport of racing? 9. Should animals be used for the sport(s) in rodeo (e.g., bull riding, bronc riding, calf roping)? 10. Should animals be hunted (e.g., commercial big game hunting, state license hunting)? 11. Should animals be used in modern warfare? 12. Should children/adolescents raise animals for slaughter in youth programs such as 4H or FFA? (Is this desensitization or education?) 13. Should elderly care facilities be required to allow the residents to keep pets? 14. Should animals be used in religion?
