How Do People Treat Animals?

 

Many people now keep animals as pets.

Some people have cats and dogs in their houses.

Other people like fish,caged birds, tortoises and even snakes, monkeys or lions.

Millions of dollars and much time are spent every year on pet food,equipment, taming and medical treatment.

Of course,there are some people who do not look after their pets properly or are even cruel to them.

For this reason a royal society was created in 1824 in Britain to prevent cruel treatment of animals.

In contrast to the love of pets is the fact

that blood sports still exist in most countries.

People hunt foxes, elephants,pandas, ducks rabbits, pheasants pheasants and other animals,

not because they need the meat to eat,but just for pleasure.

In some countries, blood sports like bull-fighting and cock-fighting are common

and hunting rare animals for commercial purpose

has brought about an even more serious problem in the protection of the ecosystem.

It is strange that people love certain animals,

but enjoy cruelly killing others.

如今,许多人把动物当作宠物来养。

一些人在家里养猫养狗。

另一些人喜欢养鱼,鸟,乌龟,甚至蛇,猴子还有狮子。

每年上百万美元的金钱和大量的时间花在养宠物所需的食物,设施,驯养以及医疗保健上。

当然有些人并不善待动物,甚至虐待它们。

为此,1824年英国成立了皇家动物保护协会,防止人们虐待动物。

与人们对宠物的热爱相反,

血腥的运动仍然存在于大多数国家。

人们捕猎狐狸,大象,熊猫,野鸭,野兔和其他动物,

并不是因为要吃肉,而是为了寻开心。

在有些国家,斗牛,斗鸡等血腥运动还非常普遍,

而捕猎珍惜动物以获取商业利益

更是带来了非常严峻的问题,在生态系统的保护方面。

奇怪的是人们喜爱有些动物,

却又乐于以残酷的方式残杀另一些动物。
