Let’s face it. Most abusers are men but pets are not always attacked by the abusers. Pets are a convient target because they are trained not to expect harm from their humans which allows us to take an innocent life. Whether in a domestic setting or other setting we cannot recreate that life that is destroyed and we should protect those that see us as friend. Our petty excuses for see their existence as being less valuable reflect our distain for anyone else’s life other than our own. If you hunt, don’t hunt these thing you will not eat.
