Animals should be given the right not to be owned.

Thank you for starting this debate. I feel like this will be a good way to get myself back into debating.

So without further introduction, let the games begin.

I'm just going to take a logical analysis of my opponent's singular sentence.

1) The argument asserts that animals have a mode of properly communicating that they want to be owned or don't want to be owned. I guess you could say that if an animal attacks a human it probably doesn't want to be owned, but in this scenario, it's not necessarily saying legally it doesn't want to be owned (especially since it's incapable of processing that thought). In reality, it's either hungry or upset.

2) My opponent has not satisfied a burden of proof of any type. Unless you're talking about the burden of proof in lunch table discussions, which even then this would get shut down.

3) Since I have just given a point to negate what my opponent has said, and my opponent has not proven his/her stance I win this debate.

Thank you for reading

Yeah, I knew the forfeit would happen, and we had an hour to respond, so I figured I'd just let it all happen.

There was a picture of a pig resting on the leg of a sitting cow. It said"friends forever" then underneath that was a picture of a hamburger with bacon.
