What do You Think About BullFighting?

What do You Think About BullFighting? Do we really need to support such traditions in this century? Do we ever consider the bull’s side of the story?

BullFighting

It’s whereby bulls are made to fight each other, or made to fight with humans.

It is believed to have been borrowed from bull worship and sacrifice. And originated from Rome. Where humans versus animals competitions were held for entertainment purposes.

This then spread to other parts of the world. I guess we got carried away by the famous say, when you go to Rome, do as the Romans do.

Traditional bull fighting has been considered as a cultural/traditional practices. That attract people all over the world. The event have sponsors and sometimes aired on the televisions.

People travel across continents to witness and be part of this awful practice. They fill the stadiums and enjoy seeing the bulls fight for their lives. I wonder if they see it that way.

Bulls are usually ‘prepared’ for the bull fighting event

Evil deeds done to wildlife that will break your heart

Evil deeds done to wildlife that will break your heart.

These deeds are executed by us without caring how wildlife feels about it. Or what impact they have on them. They are heartless and brutal.

I came across one that almost gave me a heart attack. Allowing me to reflect on similar incidences that cross my path while research about wildlife status around the world.

Former Zimbabwe president’s (Robert Mugabe) birthday in 2015

Am still shocked and angry about what I read. Do we have wildlife conservationist in Zimbabwe? Who would have stopped this guy. But wait, he was one of the worst dictators. So I guess no one would dare opposed him.

Apparently, this guy’s birthday saw death of two elephants, two buffaloes, two sables, five impalas and one lion as a source of food. That’s right. These wildlife were killed to provide meat for his birthday party.

Read more about the party here.

Do you see endangerous species in that list? Do you get any idea that would have necessitated their death?

This guy made his people go through a lot of pain and loss. But guess what? They still made his birthday to be a public holiday. Named Robert Mugabe National Youth day and will be happening on twenty firsts of February.

No matter what power you have, every life is important. We have to be reasonable on how we handle public resources especially those who we elect to represent us in the governments. Your job is to do the great good for all citizens and not sastfying your selfish desires.

Petting wildlife illegally is also one of the evil deeds

Animals Too Have Feelings

Just like humans, animals too have feelings. I was very happy when I saw billboards advising citizens to respect animals by not being cruel to them. They went ahead to show some of the actions considered cruel while handling animals.

Most people tend to assume that animals don’t feel anything . Or maybe what they may feel doesn’t matter or count. Hence end up mistreating them in awful ways.

Some of the acts may even be due to ignorance. Whereby the perpetrators has no idea of the consequences of their actions.

These actions include:

  • Feeding pets human foods.
  • Confiding pets in cages with environment that is not conducive
  • Neglecting a pet.
  • Remaining silence about it and allowing it to continue happening.
  • Killing them mercilessly.
  • Using them for experiments unethically.
  • Smuggling animals.
  • Feeding wildlife in the conservation areas and zoos.
  • Poaching
  • Killing animals for fun. (trophy hunting)
  • Using animals for entertainment (bull-fighting, dog-fighting, cock-fighting, animals circuses, among others)
  • Leaving pets unattended to for a very long time.
  • Causing pain on animals from beating them.
  • Denying them….

Everyone Loves Good Leather

That’s right, we all love good leather. It has to be genuine of best quality. This cut across all the leather products. From shoes, clothes, watch wrists, bags, just to name a few.

Leather is expensive but that doesn’t hinder or lower our. We are more than willing to incur the cost. With something made of leather, your status is pampered. It brings a good feeling and confidence.

A leather belt never disappoints.

But have you ever thought of its production process. Of course we know where leather comes from. It comes from animals. So how is it extracted?

Thanks to the documentaries.

Have you watched any documentaries illustrating the journey of your wonderful pair of shoes. Very few may have gotten this opportunity to have a look. And for sure, these documentaries are not for faint-hearten. Especially if you love animals.

It will be very easy to disown everything made of leather just by watching these documentaries. I saw one the other day. And gotten help to shed a few tears.

Animals too have rights. They are not to be subjected to cruelty and animosity. They do feel pain too. That should be always in our mind.

These guys are no longer safe. And their huge size makes them more vulnerable.

The documentary was on how snake’s skins are extracted. These poor creatures are being…….
