Be A COMPASSINATE CITIZEN ‘SAVE ANIMALS’ By- KETAN MAHAJAN & anuj goel Roll no.- 18 , 5 Class-9 TH A

PowerPoint Presentation:

There are millions of insects, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals, but only one kind of human. Human can do good things for animals: help save animals….!! by breeding more animals and saving their environment; making sick animals healthy, and caring for animals who can no longer live in the wild. Humans can also cause harm to animals, on purpose or by accident. HOW HUMANS EFFECT ANIMALS

PowerPoint Presentation:

Habitat Destruction When humans destroy wild land to build homes, factories, shopping malls, amusement parks, garbage dumps, even to build a visitor center, store and restaurant in a park, the land is changed. The animals that once lived there, from the bugs that lived in the ground to the birds that ate them, all may disappear. Some can move to new home areas, but there are already other animals living there. There is not enough food, water or shelter for all of them. Many of the animals will die. When farmers spray chemicals on their crops to save them from pests (bugs and molds and things that eat the plants), the chemicals get into the water and into the soil. Bugs that do not hurt the crops die. The birds and mammals who eat these poisoned bugs may also die, or they cannot reproduce, or their offspring die young. Factories, automobiles, trucks and planes put chemicals into the air. The exhaust from their engines contains tiny specks of toxic chemicals that fall on plants, on the ground, and into the water. There, they get into the animals when the animals eat the plants, drink the water, or nest in the ground. These animals, too, can die or not reproduce.

For children's rides, ponies are often not watered or fed all day to prevent them from urinating or defecating in the circle as they walk endlessly around and around. Animals in petting zoos spend their lives being roughly handled by an unending series of sometimes ignorant and unsupervised youngsters. Hundreds of animals are injured or killed every year in rodeos throughout the India “Bucking broncos” and bulls only buck to rid themselves of the painfully tight straps cinched across their stomachs, near the genitals. Veterinarians are not required to be present at most rodeos to help injured or dying animals. Imprisoned in “amusement” parks, whales and dolphins have injured and killed themselves, sometimes deliberately ramming their bodies into the sides of their concrete tanks. Racehorses are victims of a multibillion-dollar industry rife with drug abuse, injuries, race fixing, and for many horses, their career ends in a slaughterhouse. A Daily News reporter remarked, “The thoroughbred race horse is a genetic mistake. It runs too fast, its frame is too large, and its legs are far too small. As long as mankind demands that it run at high speeds under stressful conditions, horses will die at racetracks.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

Thousands of greyhounds are killed each year as the declining dog-racing industry struggles to stay alive. Some puppies are killed in the name of "selective breeding" before they ever touch a racetrack. Bullfighting is the torture, mutilation, and slaughter of animals for entertainment. Animals used in television and film are often brutally beaten to force them to perform.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Pets People buy and catch animals to keep as pets. Many of the people who have animals as pets do not know how to care for them. Pets, particularly ones like reptiles, amphibians, and fish, need special equipment, heat, lights, and food in order for them to be healthy and live. Between 50-90 percent of these types of animals sold each year dies because they were not cared for properly.

PowerPoint Presentation:

How Animals are EXPLOITED & KILLED ANIMALS EXPLOITED FOR ENTERTAINMENT Wild animals, such as elephants, tigers, bears, lions, and zebras, live in chains or small, dark cages for ninety-five percent of their lives. Circus animals are forced to travel in box cars or trucks for months at a time with no regard for temperature, exercise or normal interaction with their own kind. Animals such as elephants are “trained” using the most extreme and brutal methods, such as electric shocks, starvation and beatings. Henry Ringling himself said in his memoirs, “These animals work from fear.” After years of abuse, elephants will sometimes go berserk, rampaging and killing their handlers or spectators. Over a hundred people have been killed or injured by rampaging elephants since 1990. Old and sick animals are often sold by zoos, amusement parks and circuses to “game ranches” where trophy hunters pay to have their preferred species hauled to them in a cage - “a canned hunt.” Some zoo animals are so terrified they must be dragged out of the cage to be shot; others are so gentle and tame that they walk right up to the shooter.

PowerPoint Presentation:

ANIMALS KILLED FOR FOOD Indians consume a million land animals an hour. Every second, 300 beings are slaughtered for food. If we include sea animals, then 9 million animals die an hour to feed Indians, or 2500 a second. There are virtually no local, state or federal laws protecting animals, either throughout their lives or during slaughter. Factory farm managers and employees can treat animals in any way they wish in order to maximize profits, with no regard whatsoever for the suffering involved. The one law available, the Downed Animal Protection Act, is seldom enforced. Six million hens are being starved to death at any given moment in the India – called “forced molting.” This inhumane practice results in greater egg production, but thousands die during this 10-14 day mass starvation. Many more die by gorging themselves and choking to death when food finally is provided. Factory farm managers count these deaths “acceptable,” as long as overall profits remain high. Every day in the India, over 200,000 male chicks are purposely suffocated or thrown, fully conscious, into a grinder to be crushed, as they cannot lay eggs or be sold for food and so are not useful to the farmer. Dairy cows are forcibly impregnated. Their babies are taken away within 24 hours of birth. They are fed massive quantities of drugs to force unnaturally high milk production.

PowerPoint Presentation:

At auction time, if natural labor has not begun, the dairy farmer may wrap chains around the calf’s legs and forcibly yank the baby from his mother’s womb. These helpless infants, with umbilical cords still attached, are shipped to the auction house. To produce the luxury item “foie grass,” farmers shove funnels down the throats of ducks and geese, force feeding them huge quantities of grain, causing extreme damage to their bodies and early and painful deaths. Over 75 percent of antibiotics sold in the India are fed to animals on factory farms to mitigate the high rates of illness caused by these horrendous conditions. Transportation for most slaughtered animals is a nightmare. Packed into trucks for up to four days, without food, water or rest, many animals die from thirst, heat stroke, injury from other frightened animals, or may become frozen to the sides of trucks or to other animals. Animals who are too weak or injured to walk to their own slaughter are left to die on “downer” piles, sometimes for days without food or water, or any regard for their suffering. There are two more reasons to eliminate factory farming: human health and the environment.

PowerPoint Presentation:

ANIMALS KILLED FOR SPORT/FASHION More than 100 million animals are reported killed by hunters each year. That number does not include the millions of animals for which kill figures are not maintained by state wildlife agencies. The vast majority of species that are hunted -- waterfowl, upland birds, mourning doves, squirrels, raccoons, rabbits, crows, coyotes, etc. -- provide minimal sustenance and do not require population control. Each year, more than 40 million animals are killed for their fur: mink, fox, bobcat, beavers, raccoon, lynx, chinchilla, coyote, fisher, marten, muskrat, opossum, otter, skunk, weasel -— the list goes on and on. Each piece of fur trim represents an animal who suffered and died; a full coat represents many animals. There is no reason to kill animals for fashion, and many reasons not to. Animals suffer for days in steel-jawed leg-hold traps before being killed by one of a variety of methods: standing on their chests to crush their lungs, shooting them, clubbing them, stabbing them, or by other equally cruel methods. .

Animals suffer for days in steel-jawed leg-hold traps before being killed by one of a variety of methods: standing on their chests to crush their lungs, shooting them, clubbing them, stabbing them, or by other equally cruel methods. Thousands of animals, referred to by the fur industry as “trash animals,” are caught in traps every year, including birds, reptiles, squirrels, dogs, cats and sometimes even children. Ranch-raised fur-bearing animals live their entire lives in tiny wire cages where only minimal survival needs are met. Animals often become insane from lack of mental stimulation and sometimes mutilate themselves by chewing at their own paws and tails. Animals on fur ranches are killed by a variety of methods, including anal electrocution. A metal rod is inserted into the anus and electrified as the animal is forcibly held down. Cat, dog, and rabbit fur is commonly used as trim on many garments. It takes the following number of animals to make one 40-inch coat: 16 coyote, 18 lynx, 60 mink, 45 opossum, 20 otter, 42 red fox, 40 raccoon, 50 sable, 8 seal, 50 muskrat and 15 beaver. This doesn't count the number of trash animals also killed in the process. Killing methods include: Drowned in leg-hold, body-crushing trap, clubbed, suffocated, shot after being caught in leg-hold trap, hunted and shot, electrocuted (genital or ear-to-foot), neck broken, poisoned, strangled by snare, poisoned (by injection), or gassed.

PowerPoint Presentation:

How to SAVE Animals Spay and neuter. Each year, millions of dogs and cats are put to death in animal shelters. Spaying and neutering eases the overpopulation problem and prolongs the life of your dog or cat. Never buy an animal from a pet shop. Adopt your companion animals from shelters. Pet shops buy from puppy mills and large-scale breeders who contribute to the population crisis and whose over-bred animals are often very unhealthy. Never give an animal as a gift. Many an animal has been abandoned because people aren't prepared to care for it. Discuss it with your friends and family first. Take notice and take action. Never ignore stray animals on the street, where they can become victims of disease, starvation, and human cruelty. Help lost animals find their way home. Pay attention to flyers posted in your neighborhood. If you find a lost animal with no tag, post it in the newspaper, but be vague in your description. Animal guardians should be able to describe their animals in detail.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Support your local animal shelter. Animal shelters and SPCAs always need help socializing cats and walking dogs, fostering animals, and cleaning cages and pens. If you cannot volunteer, send a contribution. Report abuse. Call your local humane society if you witness any type of cruelly or abuse. It is common knowledge that violence towards non-human animals is a precursor of violence towards human animals. Keep them safe at home. Be sure to keep collars and tags on dogs and cats (even if they are indoors). In case of an emergency, they can be returned home safely. Be sure to have a secure fence for dogs in your yard. To save the lives of animals, you can donate money to organizations such as the Humane Society to help keep their service keep running which helps to save the lives of animals. you can also volunteer in shelters and rescues to help homeless pets.  All you have to do is create a volunteer profile at 1-800-save-a-pet.com and their system will match you with shelters and rescues.  You can help animals in need and meet other caring people like you. Find alternatives to zoos. Animals are fascinating to watch . . . in their natural environment. Victims of illegal trade, forced from their families, and raised in captivity, zoo animals would prefer not to be entertainment for humans. Watch National Geographic videos, read zoology books, and visit local nature centers.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Join wildlife protection organizations. Capturing young animals from the wild to sell them to zoos is a cruel practice both for mother and baby. Support organizations that protect these animals. Boycott marine theme parks. Unable to use their sonar, choose a mate, escape the noise of onlookers, or travel hundreds of miles with their family, captive marine mammals routinely die of pneumonia, ulcers, and other stress-related illnesses. Wild dolphins can live 40 years, and orcas can live 90, but in captivity, they rarely survive their teens. Learn more about how animals suffer in rodeos. The rodeo's most popular events would not be possible if humans did not inflict pain on the animals involved. Calves and steers often incur back and neck injuries, torn ligaments and broken bones, a painful device makes broncos "buck," and animals are cramped in pens as they endure constant travel. Do not patronize dog tracks. The greyhound racing industry breeds approximately 50,000 puppies each year. Of these animals, only 15,000 actually become racing dogs. The rest are "retired," used as breeding stock, or, in a more likely scenario, shot and destroyed. Greyhounds that actually become racers live life in small cages, usually no greater than three feet in diameter.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Boycott the Rodeo. The rodeo consists of painful and often fatal events such as roping, bucking, and steer wrestling events. While the public witnesses only the 8 seconds or so that the animals perform, there are hundreds of hours of unsupervised practice sessions. Also, the stress of constant travel, often in improperly ventilated vehicles, and poor enforcement of proper unloading, feeding, and watering of animals during travel contribute to a life of misery for these animals. Learn why carriage horses have been banned in many cities. Such people as Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger are dedicated to helping carriage horses, working animals with minimal protections. Heat exhaustion, dehydration, stress, collisions with cars, fear of traffic and loud noises, incessant inhalation of exhaust fumes, lameness, hoof deterioration, improper food and water are just some of the ways they suffer. Oppose bullfighting. A cruel spectacle of human dominance, the bullfight purports to be a battle to the death in which either participant, bull or matador, may die. In reality, the bull never has a chance to win. Stabbed in the side before released into the arena, the hurt animal is taunted until angry and then stabbed repeatedly until he dies a painful death.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Educate yourself and others. Read books and watch videos to learn more about how animals suffer in the name of entertainment, such as Beyond the Bars: The Zoo Dilemma, When Elephants Weep: The Emotional Lives of Animals, and The Souls of Animals. Buy cruelty-free products. Most consumer products, from soap to cosmetics and cleaners, have been cruelly tested on animals who are intentionally poisoned or blinded. Check the packaging and only buy products that are not tested on animals. (Also check the ingredients to be certain that animal products were not used in the manufacturing process.) Obtain a list of cruelty-free companies. Such organizations as the American Anti-Vivisection Society, In Defense of Animals, and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals offer (free!) updated and comprehensive lists of companies that DO NOT test on animals (as well as lists of those that DO test). Keep them in your wallet and refer to them whenever you shop. So Start This From Now……….You’ll Never Go 'in To Know That What Is Going To Happen Tomorrow……!!
