    Lost Connection

    We mistreat them so much. We destroy their habitats more and more and put them in prisons or kill them. So it's never a surprise to me when I see an animal attacking someone. Of course I would never support an animal attacking a child or someone who hasn't done anything wrong...

    ...

    unlike us, they rarely attack to inflate egos, show strength (in attacking people, not other animals), to prove a point, to make themselves look good, out of jealousy, or for the sake of it. They do it because they feel scared, threatened, or angry at how they have been treated...

    I Always Do

    I do feel bad for a young child that gets attacked or bit by a dog but still i do not blame the dog, I blame the parent of the child. people need to have some respect for all animals wild and domesticated. do not keep wild animals as pets, teach your children to not run up to...

    Am I Really a Tiger...?

    I think that a lot of people forget that we are living on Planet Earth.  I think that to many people grow up in cities and don't realize that there is wild life out there.  I love animals, but I know that I can't go and cuddle with a Polar Bear.  And I am sorry but...

    Usually

     animals attack for very good reasons. Bear attacks are rare, even when they do occur, ita uaually because people were getting too close to a pair of cubs. Think about it, you see someone apporaching your brood, what would you do when you can't communicate otherwise?  ...

    Give Them An Award

    Without question I almost always side with animals when they attack people. The reason is simple - animals come with instincts, humans come with self awareness even though we don't exercise that nearly enough. Therefore I assume that if you are willing to get into a ring with a...

    I Always

    I will always side with the animal befire the human. The animal does not know better or that the human did something to provoke the animal. I hate people. :( but I kinda think it's funny how many people joined this group.

    People Are Dumb

    It's pretty rare that an animal will attack someone on a whim. You typically have to be in their space or teasing them before they bother to attack you. And I just hate it when some jerk does something stupid and gets attacked, then the animal has to be killed because it has a...

    People Are The Monsters

    People bring wild animals out of the wild and put them in shows, zoos, and sometimes to turn them into pets. How many times do you think you can whip a tiger without getting hurt? Wild animals didn't ask to get put on display to entertain humans. They aren't the ones getting a...

    People Provoke

    Animals very rarely attack humans unless frightened or provoked. I can't remember ever being bitten by a dog, scratched by a cat, or attacked by other critters large or small when in the wilderness. Most "bad animals" are the result of bad owners or campers...

    It Just Isn't Fair to Them!

      My main problem with the way that we treat animals is our reaction. When there are too many of them, we go along and kill them off but too many people, we just expand. Whenever they do something and it's a human's fault, blame the animal then kill it if you can...

    well, when the animal attacks, its for their protection!!! They attack because you scare them, or you did something stipid. why else would they attack? because they want to? thats not what they adapt to do. they adapt to survive

    That is usually how come animals do things to harm people. Some are just touchy others are looking to survive. It is just nature. We kill animals why is it so wrong for animals to have the want to kill us?

    It's a great affront to me, when animals are put down after an attack on a human being.  The human being, is almost always in the wrong - and even when not - an animal is an animal, and should NOT pay with its life, for behaving as such. Humans so often point out their...
