Animal Abuse Symptom of Deep Mental Disturbance

Do you know someone who enjoys watching or inflicting pain on small animals? Maybe he thinks it's funny to shoot a cat with pellets and watch it writhe in agony? He films herself or others setting traps to maim and inflict pain on animals traditionally regarded as socially acceptable and friendly or even pets? That person may not be merely nasty, but in fact, she may be a deeply disturbed individual who should be avoided at all costs. At http://www.helpinganimals.com/ga_humanAbuse.asp you'll find an article that explains such people often progress over time and begin hurting humans. The article states that the FBI has confirmed that a history hurting animals is commonly found in the profiles of serial rapists and serial killers and it references a Massachusettes SPCA study that proved people who derive pleasure from such activities are five times MORE likely to commit violent crimes. Think about that.

anyone that enjoys inflicting suffering on another living thinh, human or otherwise, deserves to be locked away and have the key thrown off a cliff. from school bullies, to blood sport fans, to murderers.

I just read that Ted Bundy watched his father torture animals, so apparently you can raise a monster if you do things like that in front of them.

"yes i second this comment, agreed absolutely, but would we have room for them all?" if we put them through a blender, yes.

i work in a maximum security prison and have a large number of prisoners with psychiatric disorders. One thing all my sadistic torturers and murderers have in common is that they all have a history of torturing small animals repetedly as children. Now, im not saying that all kids who do this are going to become psycho-killers, but there is a link. It is more than casual that all these violent individuals have this trait in their background blessed be

I was with my son in a waiting room one time and to say this kid was "difficult" is an understatement. He's just a royal PIA, but always loved animals and babies (he tried to jump in the lake one time to rescue a 3-legged frog). I was "comparing notes" with another mom and going "yeah..oh, yeah...he does that too"...and then she hits, "oh, and does he like to kill things? Jr. killed the hampster and the neighbor's cat.." these boys were like, 3 years old. I got out of there pretty fast.
