Yes Its Legal… But Is It Ethical??

Animals have always been used for entertainment, sports and other purposes (during wars, to pick up heavy loads and to transport humans from one place to another). But the main problem is, how soon they should be indulged in such activities? How morally correct it is to pressurize their bodies for no reason, just to train them? So much so there are some animals which are considered as the toughest creature, such as: dogs, horses and camels. Different breeds of horses are used for different purposes but let discuss few things which we do with them casually, which is legal but unethical and immoral: 

Riding them too soon: As educated humans we must know the time frame after which, one can actually exert pressure on the animal. Racing horses for sale in Victoria are under discussion because they are used for bets, races and gambling. According to the study, horses are bought to the race course at the age of 2 when their bones are weak, still growing and aren’t ready for any exertion. That is the reason horses are given unusual medication for growth. 

Drugs: Dogs and horses are given steroids for extra growth, like bodybuilder these animals face side effects and negative impacts on health. Usually in order to make them recover fast from their injuries and pain they are fed with steroids and illegal drugs to make them stronger and better. Drugs which are unbelievable are venom of snake and sometimes alcohol anything which can make them run faster on the race course are given and money is earned. 

Unusual deaths: according to the study conducted in USA, due to unusual drug treatment and lack of recovery these horses become weaker and extreme exertion breaks their bones badly. There are certain breeds of horses which are rare now due to the same reason. 

Freedom: every animal or human has a right to stay free, at least for some period of time during the day. Horse is an animal which stays healthy in a herd not alone. Horses which are participated in races become very dull and inefficient. So much so that it harms their potential to mate with the female partner. 

Murder: the most inhumane act of a human being is when any horse stop winning the races are shipped to some ‘nowhere’ place in Canada and Mexico where, they are slaughtered and finished completely. In the field of horse race losers have to space and losers are never winners unfortunately and there is no age bracket for horses to get killed, they kill sometimes 5 to 6 years old horses. This happens with the fighter buffalos too. But horse is an animal which is considered as a symbol of loyalty and strength. Such behavior with any animal is totally inadmissible.
