Why is animal cruelty illegal ?

Report as

the same reason human cruelty is illegal, animals are living breathing, feeling creatures and it is inhumane to treat a defenseless animal in a bad way.

The reason why it is illegal is because animals feel pain just like humans. The mere fact that animals can suffer grants them rights and equal consideration and hence the laws to protect them.

Because they can't defend and protect themselves. Is this really a question you need to ask?

Really?!? It is illegal because animals have feelings, and rights, and they are important. What kind of person would hurt an animal anyway!!!

Animal cruelty is illegal for the same reasons as human abuse. Animals are living,breathing,feeling creatures just like humans.

Why?....WHy??.....WHY???
Well, I have a chain in my garage.....come on over to my house and I'll chain you to a tree in the backyard with no shelter from the elements and then I won't give you any food or water....oh, and by the way, the chain weighs about 100 pounds but it's only about six feet long so you'll eventually be walking and sleeping in your own excrement......we'll see how much fun you have out there before you find the answer you're looking for.....8)

Really? REALLY?! The same reason that it's illegal if I were to beat you. Because it's wrong! Disturbing, disgusting, BRAINLESS! Animals don't deserve it, neither do humans. It's abuse, it's wrong, and anyone who does that to an innocent animal needs some SERIOUS help because there is something wrong with them.

Now excuse me while I go hug my dog...

If I had MY way .. pentalties would be FAR worse than they are now .. FAR worse! .. in fact I would love see a day when the general population could 'educate' those who think it's ok to inflict cruelty to animals .. Just ONE day a month .. that's all I'm asking.

Animals are poor innocent creatures that do nothing, I don't understand how someone could abuse them. And I can't believe you actually asked this. Let me abuse you how animals are abused, and maybe then you'll understand

its like child abuse defensive people being abused by sick twisted people
and defensive animals being abused by sick twisted animals. In both cases it's more of a Sin than it is illegal. i am happy to say that where i work both child and animal abuse is grounds for termination and a permanent bar for any future employment
