Whither animal rights?

Wild animals also live in this world. Why we can’t let them live in their own space and be with their own species? Why do we catch them and force them to live in captivity?

PRADEEP CHAMARIA: ‘One of the issues that constantly looms before us is human interference at all levels. This includes interaction with other animals, especially wildlife. Apart from domesticating animals, we take pleasure in keeping them in captivity, either as pets or in zoos. Wild animals also live in this world. One wonders why we can’t let them live in their own space and be with their own species? Why do we catch them and force them to live in captivity?

One cannot help but be concerned about these animals, particularly the way they are treated after being caught. They are used in circuses to entertain people, kept in zoos so that we can visit the place and spend our leisure time watching them. We go to elephant camps and enjoy riding them or being showered by them. The list is endless. We have seen the way caged birds, especially parrots, are treated. Often food is given to these poor winged creatures only after they obey their masters and perform some gimmicks…

But the question remains: Were these animals meant to be treated like this? If a life-form more powerful than humans were to exist on earth would we accept it if that life-form treated us the way we treat other animals? The answer would surely be a big NO. So why do we do this?… There is urgent need for all come forward and devise ways to curtail these severities, both on the part of the public and also the government… Surely, they have an equal right to enjoy freedom just the way we humans do.’  SOURCE…
