the animals are considered by the humans like objects and property, and for this reason the human race believe that they can do anything they want whit them. people use the animals to do experiments, for fun like in the circus or meking them fight, and also treat them like if they were objects that not feel any pain so the humans kille them in the most horrible way as posible.
I personally think that this is not right because the animals don't belong to us, the animals are part of the world and we just share it with them, and because of this I found necessary to look out for them, and try to coexist in harmony.
fortunately exist some people that cares about this situation and expend most of they lives trying to create conscience about the animal rights, and also trying to save them for the indiscriminate slaughter. the most famous group is maybe Greenpeace and they not just worry about animals they worry about the environment too.
In Chile I think that the animal rights are not very consider, because the people are not very conscience about how the industries mistreat them, and the authority do very little to create a concience, because taking care of animals is more expensive that not doing nothing at all.
in the past days we are seen in the news several cases about people that not respect the animals, llike the situation in Valparaiso were many dogs were mistreat. this is just one example but I think that it represent how this society treat thoose beings that we thought are inferior to us.
for all of this I try to use products that are not tested in animals and also try to eat the least meet posible
