The State of Animal Cruelty and Ignorance to It
The world is not what it used to be. The news seems to be dominated by grueling accounts of domestic violence, child abuse, civil unrest, and aggression, among other forms of society going berserk. As time goes, the expected reactions from people tends to fade away. You will see then so many people who do not mind what is happening all around them. We need to make a change to all this.
Even children now find this normal. They have also grown to find violence normal. Nobody gets too concerned when something tragic happens to a neighbor. Even if it is children suffering when we see the news, we tend to quickly brush it off, since it is not our children anyway.
The instances when we turn a blind eye to the injustices committed against fellow men go to make even blunter the instincts that are supposed to guide us to making better decisions. We see people being harmed, human trafficking, slavery, and yet we do not rise in protest. This is why reports of animal cruelty do not get the reaction they deserve. This is why there is such a large number of animals currently suffering, with no one to protect them. This can be seen when animals are used as testing mules for so many experiments and trials, most of them simply too cruel. The meat industry also fails to handle these animals humanely.
There are so many cases of people behaving violently towards the animals they see on a daily basis. People who keep pets may find this absurd. This will however not change the fact that it is what is going on.
The way these animals suffer goes to show people how far we have come as a society. The strong are oppressing the weak more and more. This is why someone would be comfortable with hurting a pet that only wants to be loved. Pets need their owners to make it through life. They are the least interested in hurting these people. This means we need to amend the way we treat these animals.
There needs to be a change in the way human beings act. There is no shortage of animals that need someone to go out of their way to help them. This will be the beginning of the end when people say that they see there is a problem. There is a problem when people go missing and nobody bothers following up. We also need to be vigilant when it comes to incidences of animal cruelty. There has to be a collective agreement to support causes like the Humane Society of the United States’ one. The Humane Society tries to do its part in creating awareness of what is the true picture of such cruelty. Help support the work of the HSUS, and together, we can stop this cruelty.
