Top Ten Animals Who Don't Deserve Their Bad Reputation

Some 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.

21 Gorilla Gorilla Gorillas are ground-dwelling, predominantly herbivorous apes that inhabit the forests of central Sub-Saharan Africa.

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

22 Panda Ant Panda Ant
23 Anaconda Anaconda Anacondas are group of large snakes of the genus Eunectes. They are large snakes found in tropical South America.
24 Bobcat Bobcat The bobcat is a North American cat that appeared during the Irvingtonian stage of around 1.8 million years ago.

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.

25 Bat

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

26 Jackal

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

27 Raven

I have to agree that the raven doesn't deserve it's bad rep. They're very intelligent birds.

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

They're smart like parrots. - RaccoonCartoon

There not intelligent cause I find more dead Ravens than any other bird

28 Grasshoppers Grasshoppers

They are benign, benificial to the enviroment
some people say they r creepy
WELL I SAY THEY CUTE!

29 Grizzly Bear Grizzly Bear The grizzly bear less commonly called the silvertip bear, is any North American morphological form or subspecies of brown bear.

Hate bears

30 Dingo Dingo The dingo is a wild dog found in Australia. Its exact ancestry is debated, but dingoes are generally believed to be descended from semi-domesticated dogs from East or South Asia, which returned to a wild lifestyle when introduced by Aborigines into Australia.

They do not and I mean not babys in fact there pup are cute

31 Mice Mice A mouse is a small rodent characteristically having a pointed snout, small rounded ears, a body-length scaly tail and a high breeding rate. The best known mouse species is the common house mouse. It is also a popular pet.

I love mice! - RaccoonCartoon

32 Cobra
33 Skink
34 African Harrier-Hawk

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.

35 Hawk Hawk Hawks are a group of medium-sized diurnal birds of prey of the family Accipitridae which are widely distributed and varying greatly in size.
36 White Tiger White Tiger

People kill them for no reason, it's not fair! - RaccoonCartoon

37 Rottweiler Rottweiler The Rottweiler is a breed of domestic dog, regarded as medium-to-large or large.The dogs were known in German as Rottweiler Metzgerhund, meaning Rottweil butchers' dogs, because one of their uses was to herd livestock and pull carts laden with butchered meat to market.
38 Aye-aye Aye-aye The aye-aye is a lemur, a strepsirrhine primate native to Madagascar that combines rodent-like teeth that perpetually grow and a special thin middle finger.

They remind me of Furbys, which I love Furbys. - RaccoonCartoon

39 Octopus Octopus The octopus is a cephalopod mollusc of the order Octopoda. It has two eyes and four pairs of arms and, like other cephalopods, it is bilaterally symmetric. It has a beak, with its mouth at the center point of the arms.
