  • 1. BY OMAR FLORES
  • 2. What is animal cruelty?   Animal cruelty is a big problem around the world. People each day abuse of an animal in physical and emotional ways.
  • 3. Types of Abuse   Top 5 Types of Abuse  32% neglect or abandonment  12% hoarding  11% shooting  9% fighting  7% beating Dog fighting has become a big issue over the past years.
  • 4.   Approximately 10, 000 animals are abandoned each year according to research. The total number of abandoned animals is rising each year like for example from 2007 to 2008, the number rose by 57%, which is an alarming rate.
  • 5.   Nearly 250,000 animals are victims of animal hoarding each year. A cat lady A bathroom full of rabbits A house full of rats
  • 6.   Hunting is often called a sport as a way to pass off a cruel, needless killing spree as a socially acceptable, wholesome activity. Less than 5 percent of the U.S. population (13.7 million people) hunts, yet hunting is permitted in many wildlife refuges, national forests, and state parks and on other public lands.(40 Almost 40 percent of hunters slaughter and maim millions of animals on public land every year, and by some estimates, poachers kill just as many animals illegally.(5,6)
  • 7.  Seal Hunt Deer Hunt Whale Hunt
  • 8.   The dogs who are most commonly bred for fighting are generally known as “pit bulls”: Staffordshire terriers, American Staffordshire terriers, American bulldogs, and American pit bull terriers. Dogs who are used for fighting are usually kept penned or chained (often with heavy logging chains), and many are taunted and starved in order to trigger extreme survival instincts and encourage aggression.
  • 9.   Some dogfighters train dogs by forcing them to tread water in pools; run on a treadmill while a caged rabbit, cat, chicken, or other terrified animal is dangled in front of them; or hang on with their jaws while dangling from a chain baited with meat. Many dogs are injected with steroids, and some dogfighters even sharpen their dogs’ teeth, cut off their ears (to prevent another dog from latching on), and add roach poison to their food so that their fur might taste bad to other dogs
  • 10.
  • 11.   Animal abusers have no heart when it comes to beating animals. Many people use tools, or even things that are on the site.
  • 12.   THERE ARE ALSO MANY OTHER PEOPLE THAT DO ANIMAL CRUELTY BUT YOU MIGHT NOT EVEN KNOW.  THEY DO IT FOR YOUR ENTERTAIMENT, OR EVEN FOR YOUR FOOD OR EVEN FOR YOU TO LOOK GOOD.
  • 13.   Whenever you are at the circus you might think that is fun to see all the animals.  But do you really know what they do to those animals in order to entertain you?
  • 14.   http://www.ringlingbeatsanimals.com/infographic.asp
  • 15.   In recent years, several former employees of Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus have been shedding light on the way elephants are mistreated under the Big Top – the animals are "broken," "trained," and "disciplined" with sharp metal bull hooks, and kept on chains for most of their lives. Other members of the public have captured the mistreatment on videotape, as the circus arrives in their cities and towns.
  • 16.  Look at how small that train space is. The elephants do not have enough space to lay or anything. They only stand until they get to the next show.
  • 17.   In many circuses, animals are trained through the use of intimidation and physical abuse. Former circus employees have reported seeing animals beaten, whipped and denied food and water, all to force them to learn their routines. Animals are taught that not obeying the trainer will result in physical abuse. In the United States, no government agency monitors animal training sessions.
  • 18.   Traveling from town to town is also inherently stressful for circus animals—they are separated from their social groups and intensively confined or chained for extended periods of time with no access to food, water, and veterinary care. It’s no surprise that many animals suffer psychological effects. Swaying back and forth, head-bobbing and pacing are just some of the stereotypical behaviors associated with mental distress displayed by animals in the circus.
  • 19.
  • 20.   Right now, millions of mice, rats, rabbits, primates, cats, dogs, and other animals are locked inside cold, barren cages in laboratories across the country. They languish in pain, ache with loneliness, and long to roam free and use their minds.
  • 21.   Instead, all they can do is sit and wait in fear of the next terrifying and painful procedure that will be performed on them. The stress, sterility and boredom causes some animals to develop neurotic behaviors such incessantly spinning in circles, rocking back and forth and even pulling out their own hair and biting their own skin. They shake and cower in fear whenever someone walks past their cages and their blood pressure spikes drastically. After enduring lives of pain, loneliness and terror, almost all of them will be killed.
  • 22. Some Companies That Test On Animals 

  • 24.
  • 25.   On today’s factory farms, animals are crammed by the thousands into filthy, windowless sheds and confined to wire cages, gestation crates, barren dirt lots, and other cruel confinement systems. These animals will never raise their families, root around in the soil, build nests, or do anything that is natural and important to them. Most won’t even feel the sun on their backs or breathe fresh air until the day they are loaded onto trucks bound for slaughter. The green pastures and idyllic barnyard scenes of years past are now distant memories.
  • 26.   The factory farming industry strives to maximize output while minimizing costs—always at the animals’ expense. The giant corporations that run most factory farms have found that they can make more money by cramming animals into tiny spaces, even though many of the animals get sick and some die. The industry journal National Hog Farmer explains, “Crowding pigs pays,” and egg-industry expert Bernard Rollins writes that “chickens are cheap; cages are expensive.”
  • 27.
