Goal: Commend Bored Panda for sharing the trials of abused animals through compelling pictures
Animal abuse is a constant in the world today. Physically, mentally and emotionally abused animals are found in circuses, laboratories, even in their home environments. Many industries that engage in animal abuse are very secretive about their practices, often leaving consumers and event goers in the dark. In order to stop human use, abuse and exploitation of animals, attention must be brought to the issues. The popular website Bored Panda has created a compelling representation of abused animals throughout the world, focusing on endangered species, circus abuse and cosmetic animal testing.
Bored Panda is a popular blog on the internet. It mainly offers video and photos of interesting animals, as well as people with companion animals. The blog also features posts designed to raise awareness about social and environmental issues. In efforts to raise awareness and encourage positive action, Bored Panda featured a blog containing graphic images found around the internet. This particular post contains very powerful imagery: endangered animals are caught in-between the minute and hour hand on a large clock, desperately attempting to break free of the inevitable fate; a puppy is a perfume bottle, spraying mist out of its mouth; and circus animals are painted with clown makeup.
This post will surely be a conversation starter, having received over one million views so far, likely even a nudge for people who either have no clue about the plight of animals or do not currently care. The imagery is intense within this section of Bored Panda’s blog, but it needs to be in order to create change. Applaud the blog’s bold efforts to inspire change, and bring awareness to animals in trouble.
To Whom It May Concern,
I am writing to commend Bored Panda on its bold representation of animal abuse around the world, as seen in the blog installment titled “33 Powerful Animal Ad Campaigns That Tell The Uncomfortable Truth.” I understand that the Bored Panda team cares greatly for social justice, environmental strife and, now, animal endangerment.
The imagery found within the Powerful Animal Ad Campaign post is intense to say the least. However, due to the at times gory imagery, viewers will be moved to learn more about horrifying situations animals are put in due to human involvement. Please keep educating and shocking the masses through brutally honest blog posts. Awareness is crucial to fuel a compassionate movement to stop using animals as a means to human end.
Thank you for all that you do to save the animals of the world.
