  • Eating Pets: Research Proposal

    10 pages in length. Nothing can be considered a definite wrong when it exists within the confines of a cultural or religious reality. Despite the fact that other cultures or religions do not condone the particular practice - sometimes even condemning it to barbaric behavior as in the case of cannibalism - this incongruity in lifestyle does not automatically make it wrong. Distasteful, loathsome or regrettable perhaps but not inherently wrong by the standards under which it exists. Such is the case with eating pets - typically defined as dogs and cats - and the uproar it creates in countries like the United States where such activity is considered abominable; for others like the Pilipino, consuming dog is as commonplace as it is for Americans to eat livestock. India, with its universal reverence toward cows, is repulsed by the thought of devouring such a sacred animal. In short, the reason it is acceptable to eat animals like cows and sheep in some countries yet consisted wrong to eat dogs or cats in others is because the same animal is not given the same value in all cultures or religions.

  • Zoo Visits and Changing Attitudes of Children

    10 pages in length. The purpose of this proposal is to examine the change in attitude of children who are told the truth about why animals live in zoos. Exposure to animals within a zoo setting is typically the first association children have with species beyond the domestic dog and cat. Giving them a truthful understanding of why wild animals are held in captivity for human enjoyment even though it serves as a tremendous detriment to the animal's physical and psychological well being is the first step in getting children interested in the humane treatment of animals at a very young age. Expectations of this qualitative research questionnaire include a change in attitude from the zoo being a fun place to see wild animals to one of sadness that wild animals are forced to live unhappy lives in unnatural surroundings just so people to look at them. Bibliography lists 12 sources.
