Transcript of Animal Cruelty
There are many types of animal cruelty; these can vary from individual cases to huge problems worldwide. Here are some examples:
Battery farms are where thousands of chickens are enclosed in small cages.
They are used to produce a mass number of eggs.
The chickens are given as little food and drink as possible.
Battery farms are legal but there are people trying to make it illegal.
Puppy farms are used to make puppies to sell and make money.
The adult is forced to give birth to a number of puppies.
Once the dog is no use to the owner, they are sometimes abandoned but mostly put down.
The puppies are sold for normal or high prices for the owner to make money.
Depending on the owner, the puppies are sold for different prices varying from £250 to £400.
The owners' spending per mother dog ranges from £5 to £10 per month.
Neglect is when a pet owner ignores the needs of his/her pet.
The pets are usually left outside without food or water.
They are also usually tied/chained up without shelter.
Most commonly, it is dogs that are neglected, mainly because of their many needs such as walking, teaching/training and feeding.
What is Animal Cruelty?
"Cruelty to animals, also called animal abuse or animal neglect, is the human infliction of suffering or harm upon non-human animals, for purposes other than self-defense or survival."
- Dictionary definition.
Living spaces for the pets are usually smaller to accommodate the extra animals.
As the ratio of owner to animal has gone up, the owner spends less time looking after each animal thus not recognizing symptoms of illnesses.
Animal hoarding is when a pet owner has too many pets to handle.
Pets are often forgotten or ignored.
The owner tends not to clean and feed their pets enough or as often.
Pets become ill easier and eventually die quicker.

A huge thanks to the whole of 8S for being so co-operative and helpful in the making of our assembly.
Bear baiting is a form of entertainment where dogs are set to attack a captive bear.
The bears are locked in cages and not fed or looked after properly.
During the attack they may be killed or severely injured.
Many bears have died through this form of entertainment.
Who Causes Animal Cruelty?
There are many people who cause animal cruelty, these include:
Normal pet owners
People who want to make money
All of these people cause animal cruelty of some type but there are many people and charities that try to stop it.
Who Can Help?
There are many charities that help animals that have suffered as a result of animal cruelty.
Also, many people have protested against puppy farms, battery farms and bear baiting but have not yet managed to stop them. However, bear baiting has decreased as a result of protests and the lack of interest.
