In the same way that you respect and care for your friends, your parents and your family, you need to do the same for your pet. Thus any experiments that are designed to enhance the important, replaceable, or trivial interests of humans or other animals would be prohibited. The same behaviour is common in cattle and pigs. Each contends that its requirements of justice are compatible with all conflicting but reasonable accounts of the good life.
Each year, millions of innocent animals are killed during these painful tests. Furthermore, some people hunt animals for their skins or organs as they are sold very costly in international market. Animals are intelligent in other ways from us, and dolphins and whales beat us in intelligence by far. Is it the faculty of reason, or perhaps, the faculty for discourse? Whether the animals are pets or are for food later on, there has been a growing need for the ethical treatment of them all. Cows milk for instance is meant to support the growth of a large muscular creature not a relatively weak, and in comparison to cattle, frail animal, man. This issue often catches newspaper headlines and strikes the heart of the American public.

If we assume that the explorer cannot otherwise provide food for the hunter, then it looks as if there is a conflict within the same category. Animals should be treated equal because they have done more than we have ever done for them. The question is not whether a single parrot in a cage is experiencing pain or suffering or how we would like to be in its situation. The idea of difference is a human conception for man's own advantage.
That humans are members of the species Homo sapiens is certainly a distinguishing feature of humans—humans share a genetic make-up and a distinctive physiology, we all emerge from a human pregnancy, but this is unimportant from the moral point of view. Furthermore, it is believed by some that animals do not feel pain or loss as humans do, so if we have to kill animals for food or other uses, then this is morally acceptable. This, in itself, is enough to make it wrong to cause them pain and suffering. So, if the only options available in order to save the life of one morally considerable being is to cause harm, but not death, to another morally considerable being, then according to a utilitarian position, causing this harm may be morally justifiable. Does this not strike you as absurd, certainly inconsistent. If we extend the halo of concern to animals, we may enhance the core of the halo around ourselves.
Rather, by perceiving the attitudes that underlie the use and abuse of non-human animals as shallow or cruel, one interested in living a virtuous life will change their attitudes and come to reject treating animals as food or tools for research. But treating animals well is currently based on a largely anthropomorphic view of what they are. Pain can be felt through every species from a new born baby to a horse as, if you slap a baby it will cry, however you may think if you slap a horse it will also be fine as its got tougher skin, however if you equaled the force of the babies slap to pain a horse would feel then it would feel pain. In fact, when you really examine the fossil and living non-human primate evidence, that is just not the case. If all the individuals are alike, then they become impersonal and killing them seems less wrong or horrendous. Punishment may range from a slap on the wrist to death, but the punishment must fit the crime.
The Moral Considerability of Animals To say that a being deserves moral consideration is to say that there is a moral claim that this being can make on those who can recognize such claims. Do the benefits of animals used in research outweigh the pain that the animals endure. I and many others including scientists believe that animals are sentient beings, they are conscious, aware of themselves, others and their environment. How can we have such found feeling towards creatures we abuse and or use even those of the same species and breed. Therefore, animals are subservient to humans and the key to their growth is to serve humans. We cannot have peace among men whose hearts delight in killing any living creature.
Some argue that there is an answer that can distinguish humans from the rest of the natural world. Western concern for animals is based on the sentience of some animals, namely, that they share emotional states with humans, most importantly for animal welfare philosophers, pain. Even the ferocious tigers, lions and bears are used to earn money for men. For example Hindus believe in reincarnation, with animals being part of the progression of the soul. During the walk the voice of a small boy was heard screaming for help in a nearby river. Without horses how would people in the olden times travel?
