I am fired up to update my blog because of this Facebook wall post photo of a friend appealing to help him find these men who subjected the poor dog to violence and cruelty.
“Acts of violence or neglect perpetrated against animals are considered animal cruelty,” according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA - see related informational paper on ASPCA). It is important to distinguish between the different forms of animal cruelty. While fundamentally different at the source, all forms result in the physical and/or emotional suffering of the animal victim.
Animal cruelty simply means cruel unwarranted treatment of animals. Such treatment generally has a single point program - to subject animals and sometimes pets to unnecessary harm and pain. One major type of animal cruelty is torture.
Clearly in the photo above, it is a deliberate abuse/torture. I am on the hunt for these people because I think, these people are with serious emotional problems that may beat, shoot, or stab animals or set them on fire. These photos is a clear indication of people who abuse animals and are very likely to be violent to other people...even their own families too.
