Transcript of Animal Cruelty
By: Andrea Jara
Animal cruelty can happen in many ways like depriving them from food, water, shelter, or medical care. Other actions may include torturing or even killing the animal.
Animals have been abused throughout the years in various ways
People have caused this issue, but also have the power to change it and eventually put an end to it.
Some reasons why people are cruel to animals are because of stress, feeling powerless or unnoticed.
These people want to feel satisfied by making the animal feel threatened, intimidated or inferior.
Animals' lives are at stake, we have to make difference.

Dogs are the most common victims for animal abuse, 64.5% of the reported cases involved dogs.
Dog fighting is one of the ways dogs are abused.
These fights lasts about 1 to 2 hours.
Dogs suffer from the injuries that result from the fights. Some injuries may even be fatal.
Dogs could also die from dehydration, exhaustion or infections.
These are illegal events not only because of animal cruelty but also because of the drugs sold and guns.
There are also other cruel and violent things that are done to dogs.
After a fight, the chickens don't receive medical care and are thrown away like trash .
Like dog fights, these events are illegal because of the selling of drugs and murder.
eXPERIMENTING WITH ANIMALS
Even though it's not required by the law, companies test cosmetics and other products on animals.
Everyone enjoys the shows in circus, but the techniques used to teach the animals what to do are cruel. Most of the wild animals like elephants, tigers, or lions are chained for hours.
These wild animals sometimes try to escape from the circus, it could either happen during or before the show. This is a treat for the animal, the trainer, or the audience
Most people that raise chickens, cows, pigs etc. for food and breeding keep these animals in cages where they can barely move.
