Animal protection law: necessary for the sake of humanity
Cruelty, inhumanity is a very ancient phenomenon, there are lots of stories since the beginning of human history. We all are used to encounter various forms of inhuman acts, from mild to severe range during our lifetime. But, after the invention of the internet following technological development, brutality has taken a new form which is more dangerous and alarming. People are not only engaging in cruel activates, they are recording it and circulating in social medias, such as Facebook. All social media users are experiencing those almost each and every day.
On 7th April, the whole day long, an event of a vicious murder were exposed on Facebook. It was too shocking for any sensible person to watch it even for 30 seconds. A cat has been pulled, hanged then killed in front of public. The predators were very young in age, all were enjoying and laughing as if they were attending a festival. They justified their act as they are giving it a punishment because of killing a pigeon. Hunting a bird is so natural for a cat; but is it natural to lose humanity for a human being?
Now a day’s cruel acts towards animal have become an issue to be a concern. Stray cats and dogs are being the object of victim more often, those acts are being recorded and exposed in social medias later. Which is another layer of the crime. My distress is for various reasons here.
When someone intentionally exposes their own sadistic acts in public, it is to get extra enjoyment out of their acts, to achieve further pervert pleasure, which is more intense. They know well sensible people would feel helpless, distress while watching this. Thus the predators feel more powerful by playing with public emotions. It is an indication of severe disease in humanity with transmittable effects, should be treated as early as possible.
Because, they are not only destroying the innocent nonhuman creature, they are inflicting severe devastating impacts for the society. The young viewers would learn to be brutal, enjoy inhumanity rather than possess compassion for other. People who are killing a cat today could easily kill a human tomorrow, without having any conscience.
The only way to stop brutality against an animal is to form an animal protection law and strong implementation of the law.
It would sound ridiculous while a human being isn’t getting enough protection, how far it is necessary for the animal?
In my opinion, there isn’t any contradiction between two situations. Because, protecting those creatures shall protect our humanity; so, the soon the better.
