What kind of creatures do we breed?


Through the centuries, we have talked of various animal species to serve and obey us, transforming them into their pets, thus determining the dominance of our species on the planet Earth. Humanity was also amused in creating new animal species by breeding to meet our needs, but also imagination.

Dogs have once been breeders to be better hunters and shepherds, and today more and more to be better pets and exhibition specimens. For example, mops and French Bulldogs, created by breeding, are exposed to a high risk of respiratory problems arising from the disease of dogs known as Bachycephalic syndrome. A 2013 study in science has shown that dogs with Brachycephalic syndrome have problems with more intense physical efforts – they are subject to overheating at temperatures above 19 degrees Celsius and have sleep problems. Some bulldogs may not be able to reproduce in nature because they are not able to have natural birth, but they need to perform cesarean cuts, because their head, due to intentional crossing, has become too big for natural birth. Chihuahua and other small breeds could not survive in nature without human help.



Horses are one of the best examples of how people dictate the traits they will be born with, especially when it comes to horse racing. Some specific breeds, such as the Arabic horse, have more and more flattened / stretched face – a feature that is more popular in the US. However, such a physical trait carries consequences such as narrowing the nostrils, leading to respiratory problems. The deformed nose in the horse has a much worse effect than in humans or dogs because the horse can breathe only on the nose while humans and dogs can breathe in the mouth as well.

In the middle of the second decade of the 21st century, in the Western world, it became popular to house miniature piglets (tickling prasad). Since miniature pigs sellers advised future owners that the only way for piglets to remain small to keep them on a strict diet, the owners have been in trouble. Namely, the pigs were always hungry and unhappy, so they started looking for food. They moved over to the trash cans and so they were overwhelmed. Over time, small pigs became big pigs with over 120 kilograms of weight. The problem was able to come to fruition, but only in the short run. Special food for miniature pigs appeared on the market, which would prevent them from growing. However, the problem was that the pigs’ weeding grass in the garden would again accumulate over 120 kilograms of mass.



Tycoon piglets, suitably named because of their miniature size, were supposed to be pets or “rabbits” for medical research. However, those who wanted them for pets found themselves in a situation to face something they did not expect, which is the size of the pig and the special diet.


Sheep is a homemade animal that, unlike eg mice, would escape survival if it escaped into the wild. In fact, there is no recorded case of survival of fallen or lost sheep in nature.



Domestic silkworms can not survive without a human being because they have lost the ability to find food, so a man has to put them on the nests so that they can feed and survive.



Domestic turnips can not be forgiven because they are grown for years to be as thick as the male has such a body shape that it is impossible to naturalize the turkey without human intervention and replicate it.



Human loneliness resides only on humans and the eventual cessation of the existence of human species, human ears as a species would most likely be extinct.



Color Koi carp is not natural for wildlife, so that it would be eaten immediately from the predators. There is only human intervention in order to achieve the desired color and appearance.



Plagued creatures have lost the ability to find water in the wild and die due to dehydration.



However, there are also good examples of human intervention, as a conception of the Tasmanian devil. The Tasmanian devil would most likely be extinct that there was no human intervention that stopped the contagious cancer that slammed his face.



The problem arises when, due to the desired appearance of animals, we come to an animal suffering or endangered life and reproduction. Such extreme breeding and animal engineering needs to be re-examined before it becomes even more morally questionable than it already is. The risk that animals live a painful life for selfish and superficial reasons is unacceptable, but is it also the case with medical research and nutrition?
