Animal abuse is a strong issue that has been discussed for years. It is wrong and

disgusting. We shouldn't be taking the lives of other living creatures for our liking. We

shouldn't be taking advantage of them and their lives. There are many forms of animal

abuse but mainly tormented in sports, entertainment, hunting, medical experiments, and

product testing.

The animals in sports and entertainment aren't usually killed, but suffer a great

deal. In sports, the animals are involved in abuse games such as horse-racing, dog

racing, rodeos, circuses, and sock fighting. These are only a few examples. In the horse

and dog racing, and also rodeos, the animals are teased and whipped, like in the Calgary

Stampede. In circuses, they are teased, whipped, shoved into small cages, and forced to

do unnatural tricks.

Tigers were not made to jump through flaming hoops. In movies, the

animals are also taught to do unnatural things, for example in Air Bud. The dog played

basketball. Air Bud actually died from doing it. So the directors got a new Air Bud to

play in the following Air Bud movies.

Hunting is the most unnecessary form of animal abuse. Also is animal abuse in

general, like having a pet and hitting it. If you hit a dog, he will never forget and become

afraid of lots of things. I know from experience. I have a pitbull named Molson and he's

only 2 years old. He used to belong to one of my brothers ex-friends. He used to be

abused and hit badly. So my brother took Molson and now loves him to death.
