首先中文我看到一個問題. 可不可用的問題核心是什麼沒有重點. 只要不會造成絕種就行嗎? 還是專業的象徵就可以? 我覺得少了點重心. (不過只有幾分鐘.其實也不用太計較吧?)
Animals are of great use to humans. For example, we use dogs to detect explosives, drugs, or contrabands, other animals such as chimpanzees, rats, or geene pigs for scientific or medical experiments and research. Also, majority of the food products such as beef, chicken, eggs, pork, and milk come from the animals and each of which has different applications depends on the features considered useful by human. (此段可用可不用, 因為跟後面有重疊)
Animals flourish on this planet because, like humans, they need to survive and reproduce. As humans, we have taken advantage of nature, decided that humans are more important than animals, chosen to ingore the downfall when our wellfare clashes with that of animals, and consequently, caused many animal species to go extinct and harmed the balance of the ecosystem.
So, the big question is "How do we justify the use of the animal?"
In my opinion, the sustainability and the balance of the eco-system is the key.
The use of the dog at the custom to detect drugs or to assist the blinds is justifiable, since it's the hallmark of the harness of nature endowments.
Also, if managed carefully, the animals produced in mass amount such as cattle, pig, chicken, goat, etc, are a good source of food. However, if we put those endangered species on our menu, we risk putting them to extinct.
The last but not the least, the use of animals for the experiments in the scientific or medical research in order to cure human diceases or yield new scientic insights is, too, justifiable. Despite the fact that we subjectively decide that they are expendable comparing to human lives, the contribution and the collective good is far beyond the damage it could cause in this application.

putting them to extinct -> "driving/forcing" them to extinct 較好

我想Sulky bbj的內容比較符何合版主的需求^^, 在下的就列為參考吧.
Animals are of great use to humans, but definitely not vice versa.

Some of the uses are justifiable, among which they serve as aiding tools such as police dogs for tracking down contraband and drugs and guide dogs for the blinds, or as food resources such as chicken, beef, and pork,

because they are either for professional purposes utilizing animals' gifts, or raised solely to meet the need in the first place.
However, I strongly urge that the preference of some people to consume those enlisted as endangered species be disencouraged before it's too late.

As for animal experimentation, which is still debatable, I stand in favor of it, seeing these animals as, instead of being sacrificed, satisfying the same need for better health of humans as for food to survive.

While taking advantage of animals for our own good, we humans surely are not to take it for granted.

To preserve, or even to actively create, a good environment for animals, as well as other creatures including ourselves, is a mission of high priority for all of us to do as one of the residents in the Village Earth.
