Pro

Animalsare just like humans they have feeling sjust ike us so they need to think double time on that ok like i said before they need help because the only reason they should kill animals is when the are hurt and need to be put down.

First, I would like to thank you for joining Debate.org and welcome you to it.
Second, I thank you for starting this debate and wish you luck.
On to my contentions.

You states in your second round arguement that, "the only reason they should kill animals is when they are hurt and need to be put down." I wish I could agree with this, but I simply cannot. Your first sentence says that humans are just like animals and should be treated just as if they were humans because they have feelings too. Well, you contradict yourself because by saying that you want to give animals the same rights of humans, you are actually giving MORE reasons to continually out them down. When a Police Officer is threatened, he must shoot the attacker, however, if the dog is the attacker, the Police Officer must still shoot. You contradict your whole argument by saying you want to treat them like humans and want to only put them down if their hurt. We cant do both, its either only kill humans when their hurt, or kill animals when it is necessary because a human is killed daily because it was necessary to do so.
I urge a CON ballot
Debate Round No. 2

Pro

yes thats true and all but there is alot of reasons we sould treat humans like dogs well dog like humans

1. humans have brains and dogs also have brains.

2. e walk on 2 legs they walk on 4 thats1 thing we dont have in common with them.

3.o.k you are proeley ging to wi this debate but im going to try and win this debate so i can get better at this.

o.k humans are bigger than dogs so thats y we dont put them down because wehave been working with humans for years and for years to come. dogs on the other hand we have only been woking with them for only about a year now and we are getting better with dogs so maybe in 3 4 yeRS we wil be abe 2 not kill dogs and work on them like we work on human.

if you can tell i love dogs alot and i dont like seeing dgs going trew pain. tanks for helping me get more info and helping me debate

It's impossible to argue that all animals are just like humans. Squid, for example. Anyway, Pro did not make a prima facia case. Con wins arguments and S&G. Pro could not even find the shift key. Con loses only conduct, for forfeiting the last round.

Reasons for voting decision: I'm an animal rights supporter, so yes, I'm biased, but I do feel that con didn't completely refute pro's claims. Just a tip for pro, spelling and grammar affect votes, so you should pay more attention to that.
