How to Handle Animal Cruelty?
If you find a violent case against an animal in your region, contact the police.
Then proceed to report the issue to the animal cruelty society in your area.
When you intervene or make confrontation in violent cases of animal cruelty, it’s crucial to do so with caution.
There’s usually a risk of being treated violently too.
It’ll be helpful if you get evidence from the scene of the abuse.
Videos, photos, voice recording e. t. C., of your encounter with the abuser.
Also, try to document dates and times when you reached out to the animal cruelty authority involved for more detailed investigations.
If you discover places where sports involving animal cruelty are done, document the dates and time, and report to the appropriate authorities and organizations to address the situation.
You can go further to discourage such sports as dog fighting, cockfighting, bullfighting, fox hunting, etc., on social media and in your family and social gatherings.
There are cases where the abused dog loses its life.
You may request your veterinarian to perform an autopsy on the animal.
The examinations carried out by vets provide information that is important to support the evidence you have about the abuse and the cause of death.
Animal abusers are more likely to cause harm and be violent with humans too.
This is why the issue of animal cruelty should be taken seriously.
People often overlook these occurrences when it’s a red flag to more disastrous violence.
Whenever you encounter viciousness, report to the authorities and take as much evidence as you can.
