Cruelty to Animals Doesn’t Stop There

It seems that those who abuse animals rarely stop there, but go onto abusing humans. This is exactly what Professor Eleonora Gullone, Associate Professor in Psychology at Monash University, Australia, believes. She says that “Almost without exception, the perpetrators of animal cruelty crimes are the same individuals who carry out aggressive and violent acts including assault, partner and child abuse. Thus, animal cruelty crimes should be treated with the same seriousness as crimes against humans. Moreover, the punishments should reflect their severity."

It makes sense that once a person deadens his/her sensitivity toward the pain caused to God's animals, this person also deadens his/her sensitivity toward the pain caused to people. On the other hand, the more we love and respect other creatures, the more we will respect and love human life.
