Top Ten Reasons Why Animal Abuse Is Horrible and Must Stop

A list that explains why animal abuse is horrible and it must stop.

The Top Ten

1 Animals do not know better

Animal abuse needs to die. It's wrong and I feel that it is just as bad as terrorism. So I will never ever do it because of these reasons. Attention to all animal abusers, how would you like it if someone treated you that way. Not very good. So animal abusers, stop abusing the animals.

I had a comment on here, but I wasn't logged in and it's gone now. Anyway the gist of that comment was that I agree with this list completely and that animal abusers should stop animal abuse. - Anonymousxcxc

Animals aren't as smart as us so they do not know what is happening. But like everyone they have feelings as well.

Animals didn't have a much developed brain like us.
It is so painful that we know that they didn't have a much developed brain and we are harming them as they are toys.
I think that we should stop animal cruelty as it pain them and in many caces they are killed for fun.

2 It is cruel

Why would you hit an innocent animal. - Therandom

I think bird wing clipping is CRUEL. It's like someone with scissors who cuts off YOUR hands so you can't pick things up.

Nobody has a right to hurt another animal what the cause is. I just don't understand why people abuse animals

You bet that it is. And so, I wish that animals got revenge on humans for abusing them. Hell, animal cruelty is bullying, which makes me misanthropic.

3 I mainly happens to dogs

When it comes to abuse, it can happen to any animal including dogs. When it comes to torturing and killing animals, cats are mostly the victim because they are a female symbol, and lots of serial killers hate women. - bobbythebrony

Um in case you didn't know, Cats are USED for fame on youtube for cat videos and even The Splat cares for the cats but they said cat videos also. Cats are NOT used for cat videos YOU HEAR ME?

No, it mainly happens to insects. I had a neighbor who buried a butterfly alive. They count as animals, too. - GhostBird

Someone is not going to abuse Skye, she is too cute for that and doesn't deserve to be mistreated, she is a sweet dog. Dogs don't deserve torture nor do any animal. - Lucretia

4 It scares the animals

Nate, would jock do that to animals? It seems to me that they do. But if you defend SpongeBob, why care about animals? As far as I'm concerned, SpongeBob make me misanthropic, especially when that sponge hassles Squidward like hell.

I'll scare the abusers - Nateawesomeness

It hurt and scare animals for life


5 Some people do it for entertainment

This one is the worst! This one woman shot her puppy then took a picture and uploaded it on Facebook. In the picture she was SMILING! Like what! - flamingsoul

Killing an innocent puppy? That's not something to be smiling about. - ThePwoperMuser101

Every one who abuses animals sicken me. I want to hurt them 90 times more than they abused their animal. I want to kill them and burn them.

How is this not number 1?! It's just... I can't even use words to describe how sick abusing animals for entertainment is. - GentleTrouter

6 It's depressing

I always get sad when those commercials come up. I also has a video of a dog that almost got and a dog tossed in the dumpster. I was horrified. - Therandom

Hey, Nateawesomeness! How can you hate animal abusers if you like jocks more than nerds? In case you haven't noticed, there are jocks who abuse animals. And those athletes are the bullying types. Hell, bullies and animal abusers make me ashamed to be human.

I kW right,animal abusers shall get SKINNED ALIVE - Nateawesomeness

So true! - 906389

7 The methods are horrible

If you want to kill an animal at least don't make it slow and painful even though it is not acceptable don't make them suffer!

The things they do to horses are very sad and depressing

Animals live matter

8 Animals are equal to us

YES! I live to teach people this! Listen up closely, I'm only going to say this once (Or maybe a couple hundred times): ANIMALS ARE NOT ANY DUMBER THAN US! We are all equal, and we know that...we're just too arrogant to admit it. Animals are incredibly smart and know how to use tools, what and what not to do, how to survive in the wild, understand what other animals are saying (just by having random sounds called out to them - WOW), what is safe and what is not, etc.

But wait. Another AMAZING thing about animals is that they are nicer than us. An animal in a pack would GIVE UP THEIR OWN LIFE just to ensure the safety of his/her pack. They also don't judge us, eat us, say mean things about us, annoy us for fun, or ABUSE us like this!

So - for the sake of animals everywhere - can we stop ridiculing them and calling them stupid? It's not fair. Just because you don't understand someone, doesn't mean that you are superior to them, because if you do, you're the STUPID ...more

When you think about it, animals aren't that different from us. They breathe and get tired and hungry, like us. They feel pain and can be tricked, like us. They have homes and children, like us. They know what to and what not to do, like us. So if you use logic and research, you'll know that the animals are equal to us. - Ultron123

Humans and animals are both highly intelligent in their own ways. Just like us, animals have thoughts and feelings, can communicate with one another and many even form their own social circles. Why abuse them? What have they done to us? - Entranced98

9 When an animal is misbehaving, all you say is don't do that

Nate, that depends on the animal.

That is what you should say. - Therandom

You don't have to hurt the animals for misbehaving - Nateawesomeness

Anima abuse is wrong because it hurts them

10 Animals just want to be with their owner

There is a reason there called domestic animals its because they are tame so you can but shouldn't just through the animals in the wild they need love and companionship.

No. They just want to be in the wild.

They want to be both with their owner and the wild - Nateawesomeness

The Newcomers

? Innocent animals are being used

Innocent animals are being used for videos, circuses, and epically fighting. Dogs are being breed to fight, abusers are training their dogs to fight other dogs. People are doing this for fun, they think its entertainment. They are getting paid to have their dog kill other dogs.
Male chicken fighting (roosters/cock-fighting) Just like dog fighting roosters are being trained to beat the crap out of other roosters for entertainment, money, and laughter.
Some cat owners are using their cats to get subscribers and followers, they are grabbing their cats and forcing them to do things they don’t want to do.
Animals in circuses isn’t as good as you may think it is, these animals are made for wild were their home is or with a more caring place where they wont be caged up and have to travel. These animals shouldn’t be forced to do things they don’t want.

Thank you for reading what I have to say, you may agree or disagree but this is my opinion. Some of these types of ...more

The Contenders

11 Too many people are abusing animals

Seems that way to me. And it makes me really pissed. Therefore, I want revenge on those bastards by doing to them what they did to those creatures. Hell, I'd love to have animals get revenge on those creeps who make me misanthropic.


what? //

It's so sad to know that. and its bad horrible to know a dog died.

12 Animals feel the same pain humans do

I like animals

You know that humans don't understand animals... they only think of themselves I'm not saying I'm perfect, but I know that I would never do that to an animal.
you can understand an animal and know how it feels to be them, but that doesn't mean peolpe should do this I would give up my life for an animal

13 Animals have feelings

Exactly. But sadly, some told me that they don't have feelings when he and I were in sixth grade. What a liar he is.

14 Animals are living things just like people.

Killing an animal is just as brutal as killing one of your own kind. - TwilightKitsune

God did not make Animals to be abused they were made just like us.

Imagine if you were that animal. It would suck!

Plants too?!

Yes, we are actually animals

That's what I always say

Fair point. - Ultron123

tru that

17 Animals aren't evil

Not all of them.

A human (homo sapien, therefore a animal species) who kills a animal is. - Lucretia

The only evil animals are mosquitoes and humans.

18 Cats are used for YouTube Videos

IT'S SO TRUE! Why'll your watching a funny cat video, some people choke their cats to say things, or force them to do things that may harm them, the same goes for most animal videos


No this is funny and hilarious
almost all are nice and entertaining to everyone and the cat
although some are the opposite - lol2016

19 It's illegal

20 Animals aren't able to say sorry

Of course, they can't actually say sorry with their mouths but they can express it. Once, my dog bit my foot and I was upset. He could tell I was upset, so he started being all friendly with me in an attempt to apologise. - drdevil
