Top Ten Animals that Get Way Too Much HateThese overhated animals don't deserve the hate they get!
This list is a collaboration between me and LightningBlade
The Top Ten
Cats get too LITTLE hate. They are the most destructive invasive species on the planet. - emraldYE
People hate them because their not slaves of mankind like dogs.
The black cats and Persian cats are especially misunderstood. I cannot stand the hate, as cats (of any breed or color) can be as good and well trained as a dog or anything else.
WAYYY TO MUCH!
Bats are important for the ecosystem. If they go extinct, insects and spiders would overpopulate the world. - DinoLover4242
If it wasn't for them, then the planet would be swarmed with insects. - IcetailofWishClan
Why is a cat higher than this?! Cats are so CUTE!
Snakes are very much hated at this point
Don’t hate on snakes. Hate on caterpillars instead!
I agree. some snakes can be used in therapy and are very sweet and kind animals.
I'm sorry but after having a brown recluse drop off of the ceiling onto my face I will never see a spider and let it live unless it is outside my house
We're not citing them as one of the most dangerous things in the world. It's just that we're pussies and we're scared of them. - Mcgillacuddy
Since I know that there are less than 100 deadly spiders and most I see never bite, I like to keep 8 in my room
I totally love spiders. I don't like touching them but I think they're beautiful and very fascinating creatures to watch. - Britgirl
They are helpful scavengers, yet mistaken as mean animals by many who don't do their research on animals.
They eliminate diseases
Poor foxes are often hated by chicken farmers/owners and objectified by the furry fandom. They deserve better than to be treated horribly like that.
They are not that bad. If anything, you are more likely to get killed by cows, deer, washing machines, and even a toilet than by a shark, and seriously I'm not making this up.
We all know that if anyone had a shark coming at them they would be scared stiff
It's the Lion King's fault that this animal suffered a bad reputation through it's awful characters. The animal does not deserve the role of henchmen or evil trio. Spotted hyenas live in clans, not in trios. TLK is a very bad movie and franchise that is a bad influence on peoples' perspectives on animals, thus the franchise deserves a boycott. Disrespect my opinion all you want but you'll never stop me from telling the truth.
They don't deserve their bad reputation, especially since many scientists have studied these animals and see them as who they really are.
Hate all you want, but Crowy over here is probably smarter than whatever bag of fur your pet is... - emraldYE
Corvids get such a bad rap just because of their looks or something, when they're intelligent birds.
They won't bother you if you leave it alone - Mcgillacuddy
They're pretty cool. All you need to do is to stay out of their way and not touch one, and you will be fine.
Pigs are indeed quite overhated, specifically due to their bad reputation. They're stereotyped as filthy greedy unintelligent blobs that deserve to be eaten, but in reality, they are clean, and even more important, they're one of the most intelligent animals.
Yes! If it weren't for farm animals existing, then there would be no food.
That picture though...
One of the most loyal pets
Agreed so much. It was the fleas that caused the "plague", not rats. They are also capable of emotion.
I don’t see why people prefer rabbits over rats...rabbits are meaner, less intelligent, they do less, they’re needier, and they smell worse. - emraldYE
Seen as vermin, pests, and killers of pets/livestocks when they are no different from wolves. Protect your pets, livestock, children and everyone else and you will be fine. Plus, a large, fierce and protective guard dog such as a rottweiler would probably tear a coyote apart into bits. Thus, coyotes aren't as bad or evil as most think and don't deserve their bad rap.
They always run away from me
Mistaken as cowards when they actually are brave when hunting their prey or scavenging a carcass.
They are immune to snake venom
People hate them for being a threat to livestock, portrayed as fairy tale antagonists all the time, or because they think they're "overrated". In reality, they are fascinating animals, and if it weren't for wolves, then the domestic dog would never existed. (dogs are domesticated descendants of the wolf, by the way)
Most peeps think insects are disgusting, but I don't. Some are dangerous than others but the same can be said for any animal; vertebrate and invertebrate. The praying mantis is an example of many cool bugs.
Often seen as thieves but they are smart birds
Rhinos are extremely underrated.
