Should we ban the use of animals in sport and entertainment?

Asked by: rainbowland
  • It should be banned

    Animals today are still a huge part of the sport and entertainment industries. Cultural traditions such as fox hunting and bull fighting, as well as horse and dog racing in the sporting world, not to mention animals performing tricks at circuses, are all examples of how we take advantage of animals simply for our own entertainment.

    Opinion has always been divided about the way we treat and use animals for food or to test products but their involvement within our entertainment industry seems to have been overlooked.

    Let’s think about bullfighting, the Spanish tradition between one bull and one man. It has been a popular sport in Spain for many years and is considered a normal activity just like going to watch a football match. In Spanish culture it is a symbolic and respected event. On the other hand, some people believe the way the bull is treated is distressing for the animal. The matador, the man who fights with the bull, will taunt and eventually kill the animal. Is this an acceptable form of sporting entertainment?

  • Yes they should be banned

  • Yes it should

    It is just cruel to treat animals like that. Animals are living beings, like us. They deserve rights like we do. They are creatures. And all creatures need respect. We think that we are the best and the only ones who need a life. THINK ABOUT ANIMAL RIGHTS!! Respect. That’s all we need

  • Animals are not objects

    They are living things and they feel all the emotions that we do so its technically like humans but in a different form so we shouldn't use animals as sport and entertainment and some day at this rate some animals do have a chance to extinct in the future so take care of animals

  • I think we should ban use of animals in that kind of way because they are living not objects

    I think we should ban use of animals in that kind of way because they are living not objects . We need a lot more people fighting for what is right . Animals are being killed for entertainment . They fell pain, fear, love all the emotions we feel . We should not use them as sport or entertainment

  • Yes they should

    They should ban the use of animals for sport because it is not right to the animal. They should not treat animals like they are for entertainment because that's not what they were intended for. It is not fair to the animal that they have to leave there natural habitat just so they can be locked in cages .

  • Dont use animals

    I think that we shouldnt use animals for entertrainment or sport because it hurts the animals. The animals used for sports and entertainment would live longer lives instead of dying very quickly. Who knows karma might come and bite you in the ass so stop it otherwise ill stop u

  • S we should stop

    Animals are getting harassing and they are from nature they are natural what happens if they r getting famous they have to leave their forests, their homes, their families . They r getting treated ver badly as in circuses he head man will teach them tricks they will get famous but how that man will beat them with the VIP and get famous we humans are so mean it should stop

  • Animals deserve respect.

    Animals deserve respect. They are individuals, not objects. Living beings not commodities. They deserve to have the right to freedom, including freedom from harm and exploitation.
    Using them for sports is utterly barbaric and despicable. We can certainly find other means of enjoyments aside from enslaving and exploiting animals. Go vegan ;)

  • As a rule, no.

    I hate the idea of keeping an Orca in a tank to do tricks for a crowd. That's just a cruel thing to do, even if the Orca isn't 100% aware. The idea of traditional bull fighting is pretty nasty as well, but seeing that it is a tradition I would never deny it to a culture that has been doing it for hundreds of years.

    As for National Geographic, and the like, those programs are excellent and I see no real problem with them.

  • It's fine to use them as long as humans take care of them, even better than they take care of themselves.

    Animals in sport and entertainment. Now tell me if I am wrong. I am quite sure that zoos are mainly for entertainment. Sure the animals do not run and jump through hoops. However they are there for entertainment by viewing them. Even if it is educational. The animals are caged. No matter how big their holding is made. It's never as big as the real thing.

    Then we have documentaries. Again , documentaries as much as informative are created for entertainment purposes. Steve Irwin wrestling with alligators. If any the animal killed him not the other way round.

    Oh and let's not forget pets. No way of denying that pets are for entertainment. Now one could argue that they are taken care of. Watched after and so on.

    Well....Animals in tv shows, animals in zoos....They all are watched after. Horse races. Those horses are pampered beyond any imagination and wild horse. Water in a moments notice, food regularly on time. Sure it has to wear that pesky harness but are you sure the horse doesn't enjoy galloping for a while?

    In essence, animals under humans in general have a better life. Unless you are poultry then you are screwed. However as an animal bred/ reared for sports. It in most cases gets pampered well. Unless you are in some country with no functioning animal rights.

    Entertainment wise. I am sure you would like your kids to know what a wild animal looks like without having to actually throw them in to the wild.

  • Loss of sport

    Most sports will include of things or inclusion of animals which brings me to say that their are laws protecting them, and do we want finance benefits to poor our country's? No. And the benefits from money and enjoyment are okay. The animals are looked after anyway and the human race is classified human so if you want sports gone with animals then say goodbye to healthy living creatures people!

  • Some sports involving animals is a symbol of culture

    Sports like bullfighting is a symbol of the culture of Spain.Yes, it also harms bulls but without a cultural activity a country might lose their identity. Furthermore these sports mostly involve highly populated animals such as bulls and horses.It is not really harming nature.Besides that these sports are illegal and even endorsed by their country

  • No animals for sports and entertainment

    Many dogs suffer while making a specific film and also for sports . The animal can also turn wild on you some times it can even kill you they don't like how u are treating them they can turn back on you even pets turn on you so never be confident in your pet . That is why we sould not be able to use dogs for sports and entertainment

  • At one side we say that cows are our mother on the other hand we our crulty on them what is it
