Today I would like to share the top ten animal rights issues based on their order on About.com.
1. Human Overpopulation
The human population on Earth is above 7 billion people, according to the world population clock, and it is continuing to grow. This is a major threat to animals and the environment. The actions of humans result in taking away the rights of animals. As the population grows, humans are taking more land for themselves, destroying the natural habitats of animals in ways such as cutting down forests, building cities and roads, polluting the land, etc. Humans also take animals from their natural habitats and put them in unnatural ones such as at the zoo or on circus trains. The more people there are, the more animals are being killed for food. Species are being wiped out because of human hunting and poaching.
2. Property Status of Animals
