Man has the intelligence to make use of animals for his own benefit. The ways in which man uses animals are many and varied. Sometimes however man goes beyond the borders of human decency by misusing the very animals that serve him.

Take for example the dog. Most people keep dogs as pets-cum-guard-dogs. These faithful animals are fed and looked after in exchange for their vigilance and obedience. Most dog-owners love their dogs and take good care of them. 'A dog is a man's best friend's is a popular saying that is undoubtedly true.

The dog is a very useful animal. It is an indispensable part of the police force, the anti-drug squad and other security organizations. It serves as a guide-dog for the blind, a retriever for the hunger and a clown for the circus. What a versatile and intelligent animal it is.

Yet some so-called human beings abuse them.

Dog-eating is a habit practiced by some sections of society that consider dog meat a delicacy, especially so if the dog is tortured to death slowly. So these people indulge in beating the unfortunate dog to death with a stick making sure it does slowly. The adrenalin that flows through the dog's body while it is being tortured is supposed to make its meat tender. This cruelty to the helpless dog is detestable. These human culprits should be given a dose of their own medicine. Then they will know the meaning of pain and torture.

However, things are very different a few thousand mile away in Spain and Mexico. In these places bull-fighting is a sport. Bulls are bred for the sole purpose that i will be slaughtered by the matadors in the bull-ring. How these people revel in the formalized killing of the innocent bull ! How much glory the matador derives from his acts of killing ! It is not a contest of skill or strength. It is the mockery of a helpless beast in the hands of a far superior man. This is an example of man's blatant misuse of an animal.

Fortunately the rest of the world does not engage in this sort of savagery. Mostly, cows are bred for milk and meat. Outright abuse of these gentle animals is not normally practiced. We use them. There is no doubt about the fact. It is our methods that need to be watched constantly.

Answer
 

Man makes use of animals for his own benefit, but sometimes misuses the very animals that serve him. The dog is a very useful animal. It is used for many purposes. Yet some sections of society consider dog meat a delicacy and eat it. In India, cows are considered sacred animals and they are very much respected. However in Spain and Mexico, bull-fighting is a sport where the matador derives glory by killing bulls. This is an example of the man's blatant misuse of an animal. Fortunately outright abuse of animals is not normally practiced. ( 95 words )
