What rights do you believe animals have or should have? Do you believe different animals should have different rights? Do you think animals and humans should have the same rights? I am not for animal cruelty at all but I see nothing wrong with eating animals as a food source. It's natural and healthy. Personally I do not think animals should have any rights, but then again I do think laws that prevent animal cruelty are important. There is no reason to cause unnecessary suffering to a cow before you kill it to make burgers, but you should be allowed to kill it and make burgers, for example. Technically, I don't think any animals should have more rights than others, but I am biased towards protecting animals such as dogs, cats, etc, because I see them as pets. There are parts of the world where it's considered perfectly fine to eat such animals and I think that should be their decision to do so. It's not for me though. And no, I don't think animals and humans should have the same rights as defined by humans. Sure, animals have the right to defend themselves and even kill humans if they want. It's their natural instinct at times and no law we pass is going to stop them from exercising these natural instincts. However, I think that humans have the right to take out such animals in order to protect other humans. I think human wellbeing should be the #1 priority over an animals wellbeing. That doesn't mean I'm for destroying the environment and making cities everywhere, but when it comes down to it I view humans as better than animals and therefore our survival should be a priority if it comes down to it.
