2 5 Kant We should treat animals humanly for our own sake. Animals do not have self-consciousness so that they are only mere means for us, but never ends- in-themselves. However, given that animal nature is similar to human nature, someone who treats a dog cruelly is likely to be cruel to his fellow men. So being cruel is against humanity 6 Utilitarian Approach Utilitarianism seeks to maximize happiness or to minimize suffering whether they be those of humans or animals. So it is obviously wrong to inflict unnecessary pain to animals.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
