For generations, animals have been used for a large amount of reasons. Horses have been used for means of travel and communication. Dogs have been used for guarding, attacking, hunting and detecting certain objects amidst the disasters of war, a feat which rats were also known to accomplish successfully.
Many other types of animals have been used for different duties, depending on their build and intelligence. Not many tigers or weasels or fisher cats have been used for different duties, but this, to many people, seems to mean that it is fine to go about shooting endangered species nearer to extinction however it is that pleases them. The cause of this shooting, is so that many people can extract coats or tusks from the animals they hunt and shoot and collect their prize of money for the objects.
This makes the ideas and making of animal sanctuaries an even more significant goal, and many times, people have saved animals just as often as people have shot them down. So this leaves one more question unanswered; who will win?
