If we look for a moment at today's society and how animals live it seems horrible on the part of the latter. According to statistics drawn from http://rapid4me.com , there are millions of animals in the zoos for us to look at, in laboratories for experimental use, on farms for us to eat, in circuses for our entertainment, and in the wild for us to hunt. People've decided that animals exist simply to be used as they think best. On the other hand, however, animals exist not just to be exploited. People have no right to use and abuse animals. But animals have rights themselves which must be safeguarded in every society.
