Opinion: animal abuse

See also

It is always disturbing to hear of cases which involve cruelty against another member of the human race. However, it is sometimes perhaps more disturbing to hear about a person being cruel or neglectful to an animal. This is mainly because unlike humans, animals are often not able to defend themselves.

Recently, a Long Island man pleaded guilty to animal cruelty. Along with two other people, he was charged with mutilating a dog.

Animals bring so much joy into the lives of so many people, and the thought that anyone could treat them with disrespect or hurt them should be unfathomable. If a person does not want a dog for whatever reason, they can always give away the dog to a loving family that would take that animal into their home. What is the point of harming a poor animal?

Perhaps if a person who abuses an animal for fun or amusement were subjected to the same treatment from a person, they would think twice about ever doing something to an animal.

Cruelty, whether it is done to a human or an animal, should never be accepted.
