There are many different reason Indi vials abuse animals. Animal cruelty covers a wide range of actions. Each type of abuse has displayed certain patterns of behavior that we can use to help understand more about why people commit crimes we encounter today. Animals are often broken down into two main categories’: active and passive, also referred to as commission and omimission. Passive cruelty is typified by causes of neglect, where the crime is a lack of action rather than the action itself-however does not let the terminology fool you. Severe animal neglect can cause incredible pain and suffering to an animal. Examples of this neglect are starvation, dehydration, parasite infestation, allowing a collar to grow into an animal’s skin, inadequate shelter in extreme weather conditions, and failure to seek veterinary care when animal needs medical attention. In many cases of neglect where and investigator feels that cruelty occurred as a result of ignorance, they may come in and reeducate the owner giving them a second chance to prove they can take care of the animal. If failure to do so this may leave them no choice to take the neglected animal away and give them the shelter they are needed, and you may or whomever to face crimal charges and possible prison term with the laws that are in effect for animals today. Active cruelty implies malicious intent, where a person deliberately and intentionally causes harm to an animal, and is sometimes referred to as NAI (Non-accidental Injury). Acts of intentional cruelty are often some of the most disterburing and should be considered signs of physiological problems. This type of behavior is often associated with sociopathic behavior and should be taken seriously.

Bob did not hesitate, he ran out to invest age. He heard the frantic kitten too- sounds coming from inside of a wheel well, but Bob could not see the kitten. Bob hurried back to the store. He told a staffer to call the humane society and the police. He asked another to try to find the owner of the vehicle. Then he grabbed his tools and hurried back to the truck. He crawled under the truck and got to work he found the kitten. Now to get it out safely. Bob freed the kitten and handed the little wiggly critter up to animal control officer. There was a TV crew to catch Bob in his courageous act to save the kitten. The kitten went to the humane society for exanimation and care and later was adopted. The moral of this true story is that this kitten could have died because of someone’s stupidity and it would have been considered animal abuse.
The first step of animal abuse is to evaluate that an animal is being neglected is a collar may be too tight which can cause injury, strangulation, and can cause death. Lack of grooming without regular grooming, a pet, especially a long haired can get massive matting and sores. Mange which causes by tiny parasites, which lead to…
