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

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

In my humble opinion I do not agree with animals abuse. I have seen people beating animals. I wonder why those people do not love animals. All animals have right to live. They deserve to live and be loved. They need us. Animals are members in the family. We must take care of them instead of abusing them.

I think most people would agree on the basis they shouldn't have to unnecessarily suffer; for example hunting for entertainment, And just leaving their bodies. There has to be a good reason; food, Clothing, Eating your crops, Killing your livestock, Scientific research. I would even disagree with hunting on the intention of using them for decoration, Because it's not benefiting us in any practical way. So fundamentally I have to disagree with taxidermy, Even if you can make a living selling them, It's the principal that their lives are not taken simply on cultural grounds, Such as animal "sacrifice" or "ceremonial killing". Scientifically, Pigs have greater intelligence than most pets including dogs, But it's culture and how they're not suitable companions is why we don't share the same respect for them. For the most part, The West does pretty well at respecting animal rights but there's much to learn, And the way we treat some livestock with regards to their intelligence and potential to suffer doesn't reflect how we treat others simply for being "cuddly" or such. The biggest challenge in overcoming animal suffrage is overcoming cultural ignorance.

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.
