Exploitation of Animals? ? | Yahoo Answers

Chimpanzees are especially vulnerable and often used by the entertainment industry in films and commercials. However, the chimps we see on TV are only able to perform for a few short years before they become unmanageable. Chimps deemed “unusable” typically live out the remainder of their lives in solitude in roadside zoos or worse. ALDF continues working to free chimps and other animals exploited for entertainment: —a 43 year old orca kidnapped from her pod and held in the smallest orca tank in North America, without an orca companion, so she can entertain crowds paying high prices for tickets to the Miami Seaquarium. Meanwhile, we can all do our part by not visiting theme parks, zoos, and aquariums, or supporting films, or even truck stops that profit from the exploitation of animals. We are the voices of the voiceless, and we ask you to speak for them too.

“This original and cutting-edge work challenges myths and misconceptions that are used to legitimate human, particularly male, exploitation of other animals. Luke supplements his arguments against notions of human superiority, natural species boundaries, and the naturalness of male predation with original insights that expose the shallowness of traditional speciesist thought. He then goes where few writers have gone before when he examines the eroticized nature of men’s exploitation of other animals.”--David Nibert, author of

" vividly illustrates the relationship between hunting and phallocentric eroticism as it highlights the relationship between gender domination and animal liberation. Luke provides a detailed exploration of the issues of animal suffering, gender domination, sexual domination, and diet, which will appeal to those interested in feminist studies, animal rights, and the animal liberation movement."--Rosemary Radford Ruether, author of Of course, the exploitation of animals in modern art didn’t start with these two exhibits. American artist Robert Rauschenberg first began using dead animals in his sculptural compositions as early as 1950.

To anyone who seeks financial gain from the exploitation of animals:

According to a 2004 report by the World Conservation Union, the world’s biodiversity is declining at an unprecedented rate primarily because of human activities that cause pollution, climate change, and the destruction of animals’ habitats and because of the exploitation of animals for food, the pet trade, and medicine. Captive breeding does nothing to address these serious problems, which currently put more than 7,000 animal species in jeopardy of extinction. In fact, the many millions of dollars that zoos regularly squander—on redesigning enclosures that do little to nothing to improve animal welfare, erecting statues and amusement rides, and building gift shops and concession stands—would do far more to help animals if spent on habitat-preservation projects.
