Help Me With My Sociology Project!
I'm doing a project for my college sociology class about Animal Cruelty. First of all, I'm going to try to steer clear of topics such as horse racing and slaughter, because that is not the point that I am trying to get at. I'm talking about DOMESTIC animal abuse, such as people not feeding or treating their animals properly, or providing adequate vetcare for their animals. I'm posting this in the horse forum too to get a wide view of opinions on the topic. I'm off to a pretty good start, but heres a few topics that I have to cover:
Root Causes of Animal Cruelty
False Solutions (I.E., A solution that will only make it look like there is no more problem, but the underlying issues are still there)
Possible solutions as a whole
Criminal Charges against Animal Cruelty
Good links/organizations that I can give to the class.
The project is pretty broad, I have to stand up for ten minutes and just talk about this issue. I'm going to show a few youtube clips from shows such as Animal Cops and things like that. Any advice or knowledge is appreciated. Thank you!
