BREAKING: HSUS, HSLF, HSI release policy plan on wildlife markets, factory farms, companion animals and more to avoid another global health crisis
健康专家已经同意，野生动物市场需要关闭wherever they exist because of the role they have played in this and past pandemics. But fur farms, puppy mills and factory farms are known breeding grounds for viruses and drug resistant bacteria too, because of the terrible conditions in which the animals are kept. If we are to avoid another pandemic, we need to address the inherent problems of these sites of animal use and abuse with urgency as well.
如今，慈善协会组织大家庭的在进步11点政策计划，以减少动物的痛苦和帮助防止未来的国家和全球性流行病。These are our recommendations:
动物强调运输，禁闭，在拥挤和处理条件常见traveling shows—are more likely to shed pathogens that cause disease.
Intensive confinement of farm animals, including the use of cages for hens and gestation crates for mother pigs, has substantial links to the origin and spread of diseases because of the sheer numbers of animals that are packed together in unsanitary and pathogenic environments.
Shift the global food industry focus to plant-based proteins
Since most zoonotic diseases—diseases that spread from animals to humans—can be traced to farm animals, including chickens, cows, pigs and goats, state and federal governments should fund research to develop more植物为基础的and cultivated meat technologies and global food companies should offer more plant-based options.
End the sale of dogs from puppy mills
美国疾病控制和预防中心已经不止一次暗示狗只繁殖场和出售他们的宠物商店，如sources of disease outbreaks, including recent multistate outbreaks of drug-resistant campylobacter that sickened almost 150 people and sent some of them to the hospital.
End the dog and cat meat trade.
The狗和猫肉类贸易poses a significant risk of rabies transmission throughout countries where these animals are consumed.
Effectively manage street dog populations
Free roaming dogs是狂犬病传染给人类的铅载体。狂犬病恐惧往往会导致人类虐待动物街，增加冲突和咬率而这又会导致狂犬病传播和死亡。
These are approaches we have long advocated, and we have successfully championed them in many parts of the United States and around the world. Now, even as we continue and expand our work globally to build a stronger animal protection movement, end the cruelest practices and care for animals in crisis, we’ll be pushing policymakers and business leaders to implement our policy recommendations to avoid another pandemic. Working together, we can make our world a safer, and healthier, place for both people and animals.
