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.

Animal Abuse is so wrong. Violent people are hurting innocent animals. WE SHOLD STOP AND HELP! Like the words a brave and honorable man said leave nothing for tomorrow which can be done today! SO LET START TODAY AND HELP THE INNOCENT!

2 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

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

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?

Animal abusers are just cat people who hate dogs

3 It is cruel

Why would you hit an innocent animal. - Therandom

The dog farm in Korea, the kept dogs in cages where they could barely sit, and I saw a picture of two dogs curled up, their paws slipping through the cage floor bars, couldn't even move. I donated to help shut it down and it was by the Humane Society, I plan to work there when I'm a little older, GO NO ANIMAL ABUSE! - Swiftdawn

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.

4 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

Terrible. just terrible

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

I HATE animal abuse! Animals have feeling like a human being and deserves better love as well as equal rights and respect. I LOVE animals because God is a loving God that has made animals in their own unique way.

Nate, that depends on the animal.

That is what you should say. - Therandom

Just use good doggie bad doggie treat. Like in modern family.

6 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

Animals are just like us

It's rude to abuse someone or an animal! - ArcticWolf

7 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 hate watching these commercials and I hear "so and so did this to their animal." Its horrible. Once a woman threw her dog out the window. that's just sad and sick.

8 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.

9 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.

Some want to be free, some want a good home with us and food and cuddles like my cats - Swiftdawn

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

10 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!

I saw a video of some worthless piece of trash kill a dog for meat by hanging the dog upside down skinning him/her alive and beating him/her with a nail spiked bat
jesus christ if I ever see that "person" I will kidnap it and torture it I sat it because it is worthless - ihatetrump

The things they do to horses are very sad and depressing

Look up “draize eye”, then look up “girl wearing beautiful mascara”. One happens before the other. And there was was some video on YouTube of a blogger wearing makeup she hated. Kat Von D And Too Faced were amongst them. She cares more about beauty than animal rights. She makes my mock username sound like TheTotalAngel. I would test makeup on humans who test on animals. Punishment sorted.
Test on humans who test on animals.

11 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

12 Animals are living things just like people.

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

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

Imagine if you were that animal. It would suck!

Plants too?!

13 Animals feel the same pain humans do

Hey, how would the abusers like it if I slowly made them suffer? I bet that would hurt, well THAT'S IS WHAT YOU ARE DOING, BASTARDS! GOING TO HELL! - Swiftdawn

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

14 Humans are animals too

Yes, we are actually animals

That's what I always say

We're just fully advanced animals that is. - Redrocm

True - DWisawesomethe3rd

15 It's illegal

How would you like to have a slow, suffer-filled, painfilled death? Not a fan, well... ME AND THE ANIMALS AREN'T A FAN OF YOUR ABUSE! JUST DIE - Swiftdawn

let em die

16 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

Like when a cat falls in a toilet and hates water so it screeches and tries to get out but it can't, that's not funny! That is vile animal abuse! - Swiftdawn

That's terrible, I wouldn't even do that. - Gehenna

It is NOT FUNNY lol2016! IT IS FLIPPIN ANIMAL ABUSE! - Swiftdawn

17 Animals can't talk and can't let you know if they were being abused or not


Yeah you're right.Animal aubers should dieee

18 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.

Think about it, how would you abusers feel if you we in a cage where you can't move, getting sold for meat or dying slowly, suffering, can you imagine? Then how do you think those animals feel, bastards? - Swiftdawn

19 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.

When I cry my dog tries to cheer me up and I can tell she feels bad for me and my two cats now do too imagine if they were born in china and those sweet animals were killed for meat innocent adorable friendly animals like them are turtured every day all around the world! I hope every animal abuser burns in hell - ihatetrump

20 Animals aren't evil

Animals are pure of heart no matter what they do they are innocent they do what they do to survive but no matter what people will fear them and that's not fair at all because they are just like us.

Not all of them.

Mosquitoes need to feed, they don;t have a choice, WE DO! GO TO HELL, ABUSERS - Swiftdawn

The only evil animals are mosquitoes and humans.

21 It makes them scared of other humans

I had a dog who died a month ago but he was abused and we saved him and got to keep him his name was ted - ihatetrump

I agree it is scary

22 They're Cute and Completely Innocent
23 Animals can't tell you that they've been abused

They don't have a voice to tell us to stop so we just have to stop automaticlly

24 Animals deserve to be loved.

I'm talking about ANY animals, no animal deserves to beat almost to the point its gonna die. Animals deserve love and not hate. I watched people hurt cows, cats and dogs. It makes me wanna kill humans the most when they abuse CATS. I'm crazy about cats, and seeing people use der fur on them MAKES ME SICK! And for any animal, just please. Stop animal abuse,

25 They deserve a life

They all are just like us, so why toss away their lives like a ball?

They do deserve a good life, with an awesome family.


26 Animals have rights

Animals don't deserve this.

27 Rat testing is horrifyingly inhumane and cruel

This is a horrible way of testing! If you test on a human, it might not kill them, but testing on a small, weaker animal like a rat will cause them extreme pain and maybe even death. It's horrible!

Test on people who are willing to do it not anials who don't ave a choice! - ihatetrump

Poor ratties

i agree

28 Animals are supposed to be our pets not just toys to play around with

God created animals to love and to be our beloved pets not something to use for food or clothes or to make fun of them by uploading youtube videos just for fame

No they’re not

29 They're Cute and Completely Innocent

Very true. One of my cats, Faith, scratched my mom who hates that we have two cats (Katie and Faith) my mother spat at her and didn't give her any food, not reporting her, but I had to sneak Faith meals when mother was out or away. - Swiftdawn

That is right and its just plain mean they did not know better.

30 Innocent animals are being used

Most well-written comment I had read in this forum

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

31 Animals Love You and You Should Love Them Back

Animals love you because you are their owner and you should love them back you shouldn't be abusing them you should be loving and caring to them.

I agree animals should live a happy peacfull life

32 Rats and pigs are the most abused
33 They are also god's creation and god wouldn't want them abused

If someone forced me to either shoot a person or an animal id shoot person - ihatetrump

exactly - ihatetrump

34 They never did anything to you
35 It's not a good use of time

There are better ways to use time than for abusing animals.

36 You don't know what they go through

They could go through a lot of abuse throughout their life and, you don't know that. Your just making it harder on them.
