Comment on the following statement:
| Some people believe that animals without owners should have the right to live on the streets in cities. Others say that they could be dangerous and should be collected and found new homes, or kept in cages in animal shelters. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think that stray animals are dangerous, whereas others say that they can live on the streets without disturbing people around.
I think that stray animals should be sterilized and put in animal shelters to be given for adoption later. First of all, the life of a stray animal is not easy. They have to fight for their existence with other animals. Second, they can spread different infections that are dangerous for people. All living beings need to be taken care of. If they get sick they have to be cured and it is only possible at homes or animal shelters.
Some other people say animals need freedom as much as humans do. So it is not good to keep them locked up. They also want to have offspring and nobody has a right to restrict them from doing it.
Well, first of all what we really mainly have on our streets are cats and dogs. These animals are ok to live with humans in houses and they do not mind being restricted this way. All they want is to be well fed, loved and surrounded with care.
In conclusion, I would like to say in connection with the increased incidences of animal attacks on humans, especially children. We should isolate animals from people on streets and then give people opportunities to adopt them at animal shelters. These animals will be really grateful to their new owners. They will love and serve them as much as they can.
