Every day in the United States animals are beaten, neglected, or forced to struggle for survival. Some are found and rescued, given the chance to experience how great life and humans can be while others aren't so lucky. To grow as a nation everyone should fight for these abused animals' rights and severely punish heartless owners. It is up to us to speak for these creatures who lack a voice, for who will if we don't?Active cruelty, is a well known type of harm to animals. Sometimes referred to as non-accidental injury, this type of abuse involves purposefully inflicting harm on an animal in order to feel more powerful or gain control. Active cruelty against animals should be taken very seriously, since it can be a sign that a person has serious psychological issues and may commit more acts of violence – possibly against humans. Passive cruelty is another form of abuse. It can lead to terrible pain and suffering, and ultimately death. Examples include starvation, dehydration, untreated parasite infestations, inadequate shelter in extreme weather conditions, and the failure to get medical care. Passive cruelty is sometimes due to the owner's ignorance, so many animal control officers will first try to educate neglectful owners on how to properly care for animals before giving them a citation or placing them under arrest. It is hard to tell just what drives people to harm innocent animals. It is vital to report people who hurt animals. Most animal abusers find some sort of fulfillment or power in torturing a victim they know can't fight back, which is why crimes like rape and child molestation are committed. While not all animal abusers become serial killers or rapists, it is important to take every case seriously.It's hard to imagine why all states don't take animal cruelty seriously. Alaska, Arkansas, Idaho, Mississippi, North Dakota, and South Dakota have no felony punishments for cruelty to animals. To better protect animals all states should institute strong penalties and work to increase public…

Animal Abuse April 26 2012
Animal abuse is a topic that is usually forgotten about. Many of you know that when I say that animal abuse is a good think. Animals are animals they are not like humans so it doesn’t matter. We all know that it is not true and that every day in the world whether in laboratories or for hunting reasons animals suffer. Many hunters are trying to play with Mother Nature.

over 1,000 innocent animals are abused. Some abandoned, neglected, hoarded, shot, stabbed, and even burnt alive. Some people enjoy dog fights. All at the expense of the animal. But they don’t care. No one cares enough to stop these people. In most cases, the animals did nothing to deserve what they received. People can be very cruel.

should hunt animals?
I think people shouldn’t hunt for animals. Do they really deserve to be killed? I don’t think so. Even though, some individuals hunt animals for food to survive conversely there is plenty of phenomenal healthy food decisions instead of killing an innocent creature. I think animals also should be able to live like us, like a human being. However, people shouldn’t hunt animals for display or clothing pieces for instance they will be extinct besides these animals eat each other…
