Top Ten Animals Who Don't Deserve Their Bad ReputationSome animals get a worse reputation than others, and for the wrong reasons, period. (such as from how they are portrayed in the media rather than the real facts about them) In my honest opinion, there are animals who don't deserve their bad reputation.
The Top Ten
Humans should be nowhere near this list! They do deserve their bad reputation! They start wars, abuse and even kill innocent animals and other people. They are also the reason half of these animals get their bad reputation because they teach them to be that way. Pit bulls and huskies are definitely two of the most misunderstood dog breeds because people always come up with these stereotypes about them being evil when most of them are actually really sweet unless of course, the owners train them otherwise, but that's the owners' fault, not the dogs'!
Well, they do have a bad reputation because of illegal dog fighting, but it's usually their owners who are bad, rather than the dogs themselves. Dog fighting is horrible and if they weren't trained and used for that illegal act, then Pitbulls wouldn't have their bad rep.
Someone explain how breed specific legislation is not discrimination... Please? When do people realize that it is not a dogs fault for being forced to fight to the death? Tortured if not obedient... Just look what happened to the dogs under Michael Vick. We cannot hold dogs accountable for our actions. Period. Even Pitbulls bred to hunt are not human aggressive, they're animal aggressive in order to hunt. These are easily THE MOST MISUNDERSTOOD ANIMAL IN THE ENTIRE PLANET.

Especially the black cats and Persian cats. At least you can accept the kitties the way they are, and not hate them for who they are. Cats can be as good, nice or friendly as dogs, and can be trained as well.
Whoever say that cats aren't loyal and don't love you most likely never had a cat, I don't know why cats get hate on how they " attack you " Ya, some cats do most likely ones that aren't treated right, but once again dogs attack you too, I see people " I hate cats they attack me blah blah I love dogs " yet there are dogs attack it just depends on how you raise your cat, raise it right then it's gonna be nice.
I hate people that think cats are lazy they sleep when your up and are up when you sleep and they hunt a lot and dude have you seen them run and jump they are so fast
Cats are not disloyal, mean, and lazy! They don't drool and chew on everything. They are a little independent but who wants to get trampled anyway?V 25 Comments
Often portrayed as the 'evil' counterpart to mice, and even if an original story features a mouse villain, the adaption has to change it into a rat for the sake of the dumb and ridiculous stereotypes. (i.e. The Mouse King was changed to 'The Rat King' in some versions of The Nutcracker story) In fact, rats can actually be intelligent, adaptable and are one of the few animals capable of showing emotion.
They don't carry the plague! It was the fleas all along. My friend has 3 pet rats and they are really cute.
Rats are smart animals, why else are they TESTED on all the time? They can also show emotion, and, to top it all off, they're just plain cute. If people love hamsters, why not rats? - RaccoonCartoon
Rats are actually very affectionate and I can't see why people are scared of them.V 9 Comments
Often negatively stereotyped with the word "pig" being an insult to people who eat a lot, but what you don't know is that pigs can actually be very intelligent, and the only reason they roll in the mud is to keep themselves cool, since they have no sweat.
Pigs are smart, they can solve puzzles, and go through mazes successfully, which is something that not even some humans can do. Pig should not be used as an insult. - RaccoonCartoon
We have like 12 pig they are like odd dogs to me, my sister had a mini potbellied pig it died at age 5
Pigs are one of the smartest animals on earth.V 1 Comment
Like polar bears, they're also endangered, so I would not hunt one if I were you. They have gotten such a bad reputation because people think they're scary or they're a threat to their livestock or whatnot. And don't get me started on how cruel people inbreed tigers together for the sake of their fur color and for money. (Inbreeding and incest are not acceptable and should be banned. Period.)
Why do you pixtol hate animals so much?!
While their reputation has gotten better over the years, some people still see them as nothing more than vermin or fairy tale villains, just because of how the media sees them as.
They are overused as villains in stories. - SamuiNeko
Wolves are known as mean carnivores who eat deer and other small woodland creatures, but they are related to dogs. Dogs are man's best friend. Wolves are so super awesome they don't deserve a bad reputation
A lot of people dislike wolves because of those annoying "wolfaboos". People seem to think " Wolfaboos are annoying so that means real wolves are too". I hate it when people judge something by it's fans. - WildDogGirlV 11 Comments
Ruined by the mess known as the 'furry fandom', who see them as sex objects of some kind. They aren't sexy and are great, clever animals who can adapt to the environment. They don't deserve this awful treatment the furries want to give them. Some other people don't want them bothering their chickens, or whatever animals they're farming or raising.
Ugh,furries just won't stop ruining them... - SamuiNeko
I love Foxes. They definitely don't deserve thebad reputation, neither do Dogs.
Furries ruined them with their obscure porn, but in reality, they're cute. - RaccoonCartoonV 7 Comments
Well, some dogs can be more dangerous than others...
Dogs shouldn't be on this list. I asked my babysitter what would she think of dogs if she survived a rabid dog, she said she would still like the killer drones. What
Dogs are angels people I have 6 siblings, and still have 4 dogs a pitbull male named Bear, Lab-Mini boxer-Norfolk terrier-collie mixed named Sunny, femalePekingese mixed named Maxie, and a lab shepherd mixed puppy that's 9 weeks old named Rebel. Remember don't breed nor buy when shelter animals die.

Hyenas are actually very beneficial to the ecosystem, and most of the time, they hunt 80% of their food. It is the lions that usually scavenge kills from hyenas more often than the other way around. (no offense to lion fans) I don't get why the hyena should be a bad guy species when, in reality, not all hyenas are bad.
It's all The Lion King's fault. 'Enough said.
Lol no its not, I actually really like the hyenas from The Lion King, I hate hyenas because of their nature
Hyenas don't deserve their hate. Hyenas are actually good parents and hunt 85% of their food. - HyenaLover
That looks kind of cute but they’re not so cute at nightV 11 Comments
They deserve much more than hate
THEY ARE ALMOST DEAD FOR THEIR HORNS!
There is nothing scary about sharks if you stay away from the deeper part of the ocean, and even so, sharks are more interested in eating fish than humans, and due to their poor eyesight, would only mistaken a human for a sample. More people die from falling coconuts and even toilets, than they would from being bitten by sharks. (Seriously, I am not making this up! )
When humans get rid of the sharks then we'd end up having to do their job. Just like what happened with deer, we have to kill them to keep the balance of nature. Once the Sharks go and we don't do a good enough job, all of the algae will be eaten, and then goodbye oxygen, good bye life as we know it.
Did you shark haters know that the ocean DEPENDS on these beautiful creatures? They eat diseased and dead fish, cleaning up the ocean! No sharks, no sanitary ocean
Sharks are good. They do lots of environmentally friendly things every day, but they are endangered thanks to us. Believe it or not, sharks are not trying to harm humans. They might think you look like a turtle if you're surfing, and the shark might be asleep anyway if it approaches, sharks sleep just like they're awake, like most sea creatures. - RaccoonCartoonV 8 Comments
They're portrayed as evil, sinful creatures throughout fiction for no reason, but you know what? If it weren't for snakes, then farmers would have a rodent problem, so they can help out our environment like any other wild animal.
A lot of times, reason people hate snakes is because of religion, how their portrayed in fiction, or just because they're different from us, I find it ridiculous that so many people don't like them in someway or other or their just jumping on the bandwagon of hatred towards snakes. - GentleTrouter
I'm also going to mention that their are overused as villains in stories - GentleTrouter
It's just a dumb stereotype that snakes are evil. Most of the time, they're scared of humans and slither away unless you get close and threaten them. - RaccoonCartoonV 5 Comments
Deadly disease and other issues with the same thing over and over again that humans make could kill other people
We created PETA. How bad can we get?
Humans are terrible
We created PETA, which kills 98% of the animals they "rescue". Not to mention, most of the animals in their "shelter" are perfectly adoptable! PETA sucks! - SpyNapsV 5 Comments
They aren't scary. If you leave them alone, you'll be just fine.
Spiders are pretty cool,why are people so afraid of them? - SamuiNeko
This should be higher than cats! Cats hardly even have a bad reputation! - LemonComputer

Often seen as being scary to some, but they're endangered animals so shooting one for fun is not right.
If there were no bears I would be upset and if I'm upset then my friends are upset and then it will lead to stress and stress leads to frustration and frustration leads to anger, anger leads to fighting and fighting leads to more anger and more anger leads to war and war causes separation and that = the end of earth
Polar bears aren't scary at all. They are super adorable and only hunt for food. You should actually feel pity for them because they may die out from global warming. (Shame on you! )
They are only protecting their youngV 3 Comments
Not too different from that of wolves or foxes. However, unlike wolves and foxes, coyotes are still hated and seen as a threat by most people, today. If you can protect your pets or children from coyotes by keeping them away from danger, then you would have no problem.
I'm sorry about the golf course behind your house and such. If you protect your pets, other family members, or such from coyotes, then they won't bother you. Heck, a large or powerful guard dog can tear a coyote apart, and even horses can kick or stomp a coyote if it gets too close to them, so not all pets or domestic animals are vulnerable to the coyote threat.
Coyotes aren't as bad as people make them out to be. As long as you keep an eye on small pets and kids, you'll be fine. - WildDogGirl
Just like those stupid wolves, foxes and jackals. I dispise them! They're useless crap.V 2 Comments
They're extremely smart, and yet neglected and killed!
Crows are smart, and can be trained to talk like parrots. - RaccoonCartoon
They're beautiful, but they make annoying noises sometimes. I like them. But they're also kinda edgy... like the raven.

Why do Brown Bears even have a bad reputation? They are fun and they won't attack unless you attack them or unless you run away. If you know how to deal with the sight of a Bear, you will be just fine. If you don't, that's not the Bear's fault. That's your fault.
They are big fuzzy huggers (do not hug them)
All bears suck, I hope they go extinct
Some species are endangered, people. Give the poor leopards a chance.
Pixolt, you are seriously messed up on so many levels. They're animals, they need to eat just like us and you say they need to die. At least they don't post cringy minecraft videos like you. Hate me I don't care.
Pixtol deactivated his account. Thank God.
Such a pretty creature. - RaccoonCartoon
There is nothing to say about white lions
I cannot believe that The Lion Guard made a vulture a bad guy alongside a hyena clan... Drats... Now that's another reason to have a dislike to the TLK franchise. Well, anyway, why would they have to be bad animals when they do a ' good job of scavenging the meat left by other animals? Even an issue of National Geographic said that vultures are vital, and not vile.
Gorillas are often known as territorial, aggressive creatures, so panic set in at the Jersey Zoo in the U.K. when a 5-year-old fell four meters into the gorilla enclosure. The leader of the gorilla zoo population, Yangbo, immediately went to the boy’s side and protected him from the others, shielding him until help came. This is not the behavior of a blood-thirsty ape, if you ask me.
Get bad reputation, becauce of Harambe.
It's a good animal, but ruilned by memes
Bubsy haters. Enough said.
Ruined by Bubsy!
Not to mention people dislike bobcats just because they eat 'CUTE FLUFFY WIDDLE BUNNIE RABBITZ', when they only do it to eat food and survive. Geez, people. Let animals be animals for once.
People think they're ugly, when the fact is that it's just a deep sea creature with acid-like skin that eats crustaceans. They're also an endangered species.
They're always seen as "monsters" by most people when the fact is that, like spiders, they eat harmful insects and aren't so bad after all. Some other bats also eat fruit.
They're cute and shy, they'll hide from humans. Such a shame they're stereotyped as being evil. - RaccoonCartoon
They are so cute! I went to Mexico once and saw a few! They are cute, and be Lamborghini named
One of their cars after them
Like hyenas, they're mistaken as scavengers and also don't deserve their bad reputation.
Jackals suck, stupid crap, I'd torture and kill their newborn babies in front of their mothers and make them suffer and make the mothers cry. Lol screw jackals, they deserve the most enormous hatred in the everything
I have to agree that the raven doesn't deserve it's bad rep. They're very intelligent birds.
They're smart like parrots. - RaccoonCartoon
Ravens suck and I don't give a crap if they're smart (they're stupid). They kill a lot of newborn lambs by pecking their eyes out when they're born
There not intelligent cause I find more dead Ravens than any other bird
They are benign, benificial to the enviroment
some people say they r creepy
WELL I SAY THEY CUTE!
They do not and I mean not babys in fact there pup are cute
I love mice! - RaccoonCartoon
Thanks to that awful Lion Guard show having one as an antagonist in one episode (Mpishi), I'm afraid that African harrier hawks might get a bad reputation because of this. Hawks, including the African harrier-hawk, are pretty cool birds, actually. In real-life, the African harrier-hawks mostly prey on feral pigeons (whom most people find as pests who fly around making droppings in the city), yet TLG would still portray one as an antagonist.
What's with that awful show demonizing so many good (and helpful to the environment) animals? Not only it makes them into antagonists, but they're forced to starve for no reason, thanks to the shows' protagonists who won't let them hunt, eat or enter their land to find food.
People kill them for no reason, it's not fair! - RaccoonCartoon
They remind me of Furbys, which I love Furbys. - RaccoonCartoon
