    Trust me, I'm not trolling here or anything, not like I just made a fresh troll account or something. I know some people really like animals like cats and dogs. For some people it's to the point where it almost seems as if they value an animal's life over a human's. Well what I'm about to say may get you angry.

    I couldn't give two shits about animals. Don't know why some people like them so much. If a dog or cat was bleeding to death at my very feet, wailing, I wouldn't care. I would still sleep easy that night like nothing happened. I'm against animal abuse of course, not because of the animals' feelings (if they possess them) or wellbeing, but because logically speaking it is unnecessary and serves no useful purpose. Didn't care that Harambe died either, though this is old news, just using it as another example. I obviously sympathise when humans die, but not animals.

    Also, in case someone does this, I know a human is technically an animal too, but you when you think of animals you don't group humans with them do you?

    If you agree but afraid to say it publicly, go anonymous please.

    If I saw an animal suffering I would probably shoot it if I had the opportunity...

    If you honestly wouldn't feel anything then I'm sure you are in a very tiny minority at least in the UK anyway. I wouldn't say that there's something wrong with you, whatever that means.

    If you criticise those who do have empathy for animals then that may cause problems for you. I think it's important that you understand why the vast majority of us do have empathy for animals. If you don't already understand this then think about why you have empathy for humans and then why we extend this to animals.

    I like animals to an extend, I find them cute, I feel happy when I'm playing with a dog and although cats annoy the hell out of me I don't ever believe in hurting any animal...

    ...but I have always bloody hated it when people claim animals are better than humans. like go **** yourself, since when are they better? sure they might not discriminate and there might be some *****y humans out there but humans do way more for the world than animals do. When animals start building rockets, finding cures, throwing charities and learn how to become human-doctors only then will I believe the claim that they are better than humans. Until then, **** off anyone who says they are better!

    I hate to see animals suffering, I would always try to help an animal in pain whether that be tending to it or putting it down.

    Although leading on from that I am not opposed to hunting.

    You sound like a lovely, warm-hearted, caring and decent human being.

    I'm gutted you are not one of my friends.

    Not to be rude but statistics? Good points though.

    I hate trolls like this ****ging off animals all the time just because they are clueless about them and aren't fond of them. If you don't like animals then there's no need for you to talk badly of them. Just leave them be.

    I would still like to be friends with you as you sound like such a decent and lovely person.

    PM me if you would like to meet up.

    Maybe we can go for a drink and a meal after maybe a visit to a Zoo?

    I don't have any but I'm confident that if you collected statistics using the question

    "If a dog or cat was bleeding to death at your feet, would you care?"

    then a very large percentage would say yes.

    Why not add a poll to this thread to find out?
