Pet Abuse Definition of Pet Abuse: Pet abuse is when someone intentionally harms their pet. People might hurt, kill, or others might rape the animal. It is disgusting and wrong. A Case of Pet Abuse: On Sunday November 8, 2009, more than 30 dogs were left on the side of the road to die. Most of the dogs were Jack Russells, some small terrier mixes, including a few puppies, and one dog was already dead. "When I got there, as far as the eye could see, were dogs," said an animal control officer for Concord, Carol Robinson. She rounded up 29 dogs with the help of others. Some dogs are still on the loose. Many of the dogs were pregnant, as they have been used for breeding before they were dumped at the side of the road. Robinson says,” I believe these are puppy mill dogs," then continues, “These are the type of dogs that the puppy mills churn out... “ About 15 dogs wanted to be held and others were petrified and seemed afraid of the outdoors. Robinson believes that it was a person who lived in the area, knew to dump the dogs on the road because nobody lived around there.
Wild Animal Abuse Definition of Wild Animal Abuse: Animal abuse is when someone intentionally harms an animal. People might hurt, kill, or others might rape the animal. It is disgusting and wrong. A Case of Wild Animal Abuse: "The Canadian government insists that the seal hunt is an animal production industry like any other. They say that it might not be pretty, but basically it is just like any abattoir except on the ice. But we found obvious levels of suffering which would not be tolerated in any other animal industry in the world,” says Ian Robinson, a British Veterinarian. Two different veterinary reports showed that in the study of the 2001 seal hunt, that one was commissioned by the Canadian Government, showed many cases that the seals were shot or clubbed when the seals were not rendered immediately unconscious. Both of the reports, together documented that a number of the seals were dragged across the ice, while still being conscious. Some seals are still alive when they reach the sealing vessel decks.
