As long as it's not cruel to the animals, yes. Otherwise, no.

Absolutely, animals are funny!

Since animals have souls just like humans, their dignity should be respected.

Animals have souls? I'm not sure I agree with you on that one...

It depends on what. If its no harsher than racing and doesn't poke and prod at the law, I'm perfectly fine with it.

As long as it doesn't hurt the animal or strech a low, I'd be okay with it.

As most of the others have said, if it doesn't hurt them, I'm fine with it.

I support what people have said: As long as they're not hurt, I'm fine with it.

Of course animals have souls. Or rather, they are soul, in an animal's body. Stare deeply into a dog's or a cat's eyes sometime, and you will see that they are definitely soul.

Even if I stare deeply into a humans eyes, I can't see a soul. I just see their eye...

I believe animals have feelings.

As long as they are not hurt or degraded, I am fine with it. However, if the animal obviously does not want to do whatever it is, I think people should respect them, and not force them to do it.

P.S. And yes, animals have souls and feelings. I am not so sure about humans sometimes, but they usually do.

If it's a sport or entertainment that could cause short or long term harm to the animal, than definitely no. But if it's something like and international cat laser-chasing competition, I see no problem with that. Just remember to not end up like Michael Vick.

Any eyes will appear to have a soul behind them, provided that a light source is pointed at the eyes.

As long as it doesn't hurt the animal, then okay.

I agree with pretty much everyone else. As long as the animal isn't hurt, and as long as they aren't being forced to do something they obviously don't want to, I'm fine with it.

I'm kinda half pro, half con for this one. On one hand, I have ALWAYS felt that some of the sports and whatnot involving animals (even the legal ones like racing) are degrading, as I don't think the horse or dog etc really had a clear choice in the matter, seeing as they can't verbalize their feelings and all. We as human beings use them for our own entertainment and/or monetary gain, and that seems kinda selfish and narcissistic to me. But then again, we are the so-called 'superior' species so I guess we can do whatever we want to the other inhabitants of our planet. But otherwise, if it's not physically harmful then I guess it's okay.

Re: Debating Society
 
Would it be okay if another "superior" species used us for sports and entertainment? For vigourous reactions to this, see the Cuddleyum thread in Total Mayhem.

Well, If you think this is not ok, why do we do it to them? We shouldnt think of our selves and superior so i think an all round NO is from me.

What about you guys? :???:
