Animal abuse: what gives?
Why animals? What did they ever do?
There no reason to do it!
Not just dogs
Dogs aren't the only ones who suffer but the are the abused. There is no exact reason for this.
I don't know about you, but I would rather see that happy puppy than and a abused animal. Just look at that face!!:)
My big question
So... Why do people abuse animals? Studies have shown that people abuse animals because they have past experiences with animals that aren't the best, showing power, or someone may have been taught to feel hatred of a certain animal.
Someone may feel the need to punish all animals if a family member got hurt because of an attack. Even though it's not right, they feel like all animals are bad. Normally, these people have some mental issue.
Some people like having power. They obviously can't control other people so they show their power through animals. Animal abuse isn't as severe as child abuse so people feel like they can abuse animals to show power. These people also have issues.
Some people grow up to learn that animals are bad. This could possibly be because the parent or relative was in a bad encounter with an animal and they taught their children that that animal is bad.
