Have you ever seen an animal being victimized, abused or maltreated? Did you do something about it? It is a normal occurrence in our everyday lives when we spot adults and children abusing animals to the point of even killing them. While most of us just walk past the scene, some stop to check if the animal is dead or alive and still others who act immediately to safeguard the poor creature. It takes great amount of compassion and benevolence to care for animals, and animal rights activists have it in loads. Animal rights activists not just protect the rights of animal but preserve their physical and psychological well-being as well. They work on various issues of animal welfare, right from the longevity of life to their reproductive health, protection from diseases and immunosuppression. Animal testing of products is a crime that has been there since long. In the process, many a time animals lose their life or become impaired to human fancies and experiments. Animal rights activists work to put an end to this. Hunting, abandonment, illegal use of animal products such as skin, fur and teeth, mishandling animals for entertainment are other issues that animal rights activists deal with.
