You are exactly right it is....animals are like babies all they want is attention and love they don't know what they did wrong so why hurt them...it makes me cry to see animals abused or neglected....people should do something about their anger other than hurting animals

Because people are cowards, they know that animals (most) are defensless so they feel empowered by hurting something that can't hurt them back, instead of just walking up to the biggest guy on the street and just jawing the shyt out of them, they pick a little animal due to the fact they themselves are harmless little souls and scared to get hurt.... if that makes any sense.

Not all animals want attention.

Does it make you cry when you eat meat?

Oh and I believe the punishment for people who neglect and hurt animals should be worse but the government has a better agenda. Like starting wars over oil and calling it freedom. Or whatever the f**k.. see you got me going off on other shit damnit

I used to pick up beef for Cargill in Kansas. I felt bad when I saw the cattle trucks taking the cows in to get slaughtered, but I would stop and get a burger when I left.

In talking about the last days, the Bible says in Matthew 24:12 KJV
And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

That is the only reason I can come up with. There is no excuse for hurting animals. None whatsoever!

Most batters,child abusers,senior citizen abusers and serial killers start with animals,because they are volnerible,easy prey.Also,many people do not recognize them as having any value as a living,breathing,thinking and feeling creature,but rather a 'thing'.

Don`t like it but my cat is going to get hurt if it doesn`t start using the litter box again. It is on a diet now put it in a cage but felt sorry for it after a few hours. Left it in till I cleaned and mopped the floor but still not getting the message. Still won`t have a full dish of food either till it learns how to act. At least there won`t be as much to clean up.

They are sick. They need done to them whatever they did to the animal. If one can not treat their animals like it was their child they dont need them.

exactly. it's pecking order. and btw not everyone that abuses animals move on to humans, just saying in general.

this kind of behavior usually isn't understandable unless you take away your own skills and coping mechanisms. Most people also feel guilty or shame. If they had a normal response of guilt and shape, plus the skills and coping to handle their shit- they wouldn't be hurting pets (or kids or spouses etc.). but instead they're on a worse autopilot program compared to others.

If you think about it, what do people think about most? They think about negative things meaning they're thinking constantly about things they don't want. If everyone would start thinking about the things they do want they wouldn't be drawn to the negative. By being drawn to the negative things in life you are more prone to hurting others including animals. Remember this one thing, "You reap what you sow." Keep thinking negative and more negative things will be brought to you, start thinking about things that make you happy and you'll receive more things to be happy about! People that are so negative about life have a hard time bringing themselves back to the positive. They say mental work is harder than any physical work you would ever do. Try it for even 10 minutes to see if you can think of only good things, it takes work to do this! The more people that can do this, the better their world will become! This might help you realize why people do what they do.

Is this a thing? I don't sit around thinking of negative things all day, and I assume most other people don't either. Either I'm special, or you might need to see a professional about those feelings...

Why do people hurt each other? why do men and women lash out at each other as hard as they can?
Why do women try to get coworkers fired just because they had an argument one day?


the fact is the only reason people dont hurt each other physically more often is the repercussions.

This isn't a pet issue, its a humanity issue.

THIS ISSUE is about animal (specifically pet) cruelty. OP, there are some people who like to cause pain to others so they can relish the control they have over a life which is weaker than themselves. (A very sick minded individual. There is a psychological term for their mental illness and it is not curable, nor easily controlled by prescription medications.)

Because they are evil and uncaring. This is why I think that animals should have the same rights as humans. If you abuse a kid you go to jail. You abuse an animal you go to jail for the same length of time. I don't care that the jails are crowded they can sleep on the floor for all I care because animals don't deserve abuse by someone they depend on to care and love them.

no i dont think so. there are already plenty of animal cruelty laws in the books. i dont believe that a person who f**ks up and kills an animal should have their life ruined over it.

as for the truly shitty who deliberately harm animals again there are laws on the books to deal with that.

I don't agree. I've heard people get 2-3 years for killing a baby, and 21 years for killing a cat. That's twisted.

I love animals. I advocate for spaying/neutering them. I am against animal mistreatment. I can't stand it when an animal is not taken care of.

But a child is so much more important. I can't get over how many people will put an animal's rights before a childs. That's crazy!! ::turnibghead::

ok but my point is animals are very well protected (as much as u could expect for a nonhuman).
no law in the world will ever make animals (or humans) perfectly safe.

bc there are truly evil people in this world... sick individuals who get off on causing pain to another living creature or person ... there is no 100% way to stop them .. its unfortunate .. but they will have to answer for the cruelty whether its to animals or people ... there is only so much laws an organations can do to try an protect .. oh an someone sai something about the animals that die for meat for us to eat .. I'm a believer in God an my belief that cows, chickens, pigs ... etc.. are for us to eat .. to survive... was not intended to unnecesary abuse to all animalsb... an there is no real humane way to kill a animal for us to eat ... except to make it quick as possiable ... that's about it ... neways ... to truly understand a animal or child abuser is to be one ... will neve truly understand .. but they are obviously sick an twisted individuals
