Are animal rights impossible?

So, as an animal lover, I can definitely get behind the idea of animal welfare. However the concept of animals having rights seems like a nice slogan but when you think about it, it’s impossible to truly implement.

For one, in order for our civilization to grow and maintain some animals have to die, even if you eliminate the meat industry and animal testing. The homes, cities, roads and agriculture we’ve built led to the deaths of tens of millions of animals. Didn’t they have rights?

Also, doesn’t giving non-human animals rights create an imbalance. If a human kills a bear, it’s a rights violation, but if a bear kills a human, its not.
