Animals for Entertainment

Non-human animals have been used throughout history for purposes of entertainment. In a new technological era, the ways animals can be exploited only seem to be increasing. Animals are kept in confinement in unnatural habitats, fed unnatural diets, are unable to exercise – or the other extreme, forced to over-exert themselves and are trained to do unnatural acts under threat of harm.

Key areas of concern are

  • Horse racing
  • Greyhound racing
  • Circuses
  • Rodeos
  • “Sport” or “Game” fishing
  • Deer hunting
  • Duck shooting
  • Zoos and animals in captivity
