Cows and Whales
by Kenji _____ from Japan
There are some things that happen to cows and whales. One of the things, both
cows and whales are eaten by people in some countries as edible meat. Another
thing, although they are living different places like ocean and land, they have
their own lives.
It seems that cows and whales are in a same situation. But there are some
differences that could be compared. First, many cows are slaughtered everyday.
On the other hand, whales are protected by national law recently. Second, cows
are important provisions for all over the world. However, whales are important
edible animals only in a few countries. Finally, there is the biggest difference
between cows and whales. It is that whales are free in the huge ocean until
caught by people, and cows will be grown up in the field by the people to eat.
The first difference between cows and whales is that cows are the most
popular edible meat all over the world. Therefore, many cows are butchered
everyday. Of course, there are several reasons that people use cows to their
provisions. Because cows are easy for farmers to breed, and they are not as
clever as other animals. On the other hand, whales have been protected by a law.
(The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea) Therefore, every whaler
has been limited in number to catch the whales recently. The reason of this law
is whales are not easy to breed as cows. And they are such a clever animals more
than any other kind of animal.
The second difference is that cows are important provisions all over the
world. Almost of all countries use beef as their main dish. Therefore, it is
nothing wound and give any impression us to slaughter cows. But whales have been
used as edible meat in a few countries like small islander countries. Therefore,
for the people who are living in big countries, to slaughter the whales look
like violence activity and wounded hunting.
The final difference is the biggest difference between cows and whales. Cows
are raised by farmers in the fields that are surrounded by fences. They don't
have any future. And they have to wait their slaughter in the field. On the
other hand, whales are free in a huge ocean. They can swim and travel wherever
they want. Even though, they are caught by people, other whales have a future.
They don't need to wait their slaughter. They have their lives and freedom until
caught by people.
In conclusion, there are something that happen to cows and whales. Both cows
and whales are eaten by people as edible meat. Some people said that it is so
poor for whale to be caught by whaler. But, how about cows? Sometimes cows and
whales are both on the same situations. However, practically both cows and
whales are completely opposite situations and different treatment.
