October 29, 2018 19:21
The only valid reason to hurt an animal is self-defense. However, people abuse animals for many other reasons, of which the most common ones are: by simply not realizing it; out of curiosity; and to receive benefits (emotional or material). Let’s look a little bit closer at these reasons.
Most of the time, people do not harm animals intentionally, where animal abuse manifests itself in the form of neglect, usually, when the owner fails to provide adequate living conditions or to fulfill the pet’s basic needs. The other group of people represents the second reason. It can happen for example, when kids hurt a stray cat just to see what’s going to happen. Such cruelty to animals happens sporadically and never last for a long period of time. However, the third group of people represents the worst reason. People who enjoy hurting animals often are diagnosed with a psychological disorder called zoosadism. However, whatever the reason is, if you want to help an abused animal, you need to know the signs.
