Most serial killers suffered child abuse and many experienced sexually stressful events in childhood. As children, they frequently wet the bed and are very cruel to animals. Animal cruelty is violating norms and rules of society. These norms and rules come from society.
This is because others feel the pleasure in hurting animals instead of taking care of them due to psychological disorders. For instance, Jeffrey Dahmer is one of the many notorious psychopathic serial killers who torture animals for satisfaction. Dahmer has collected animal roadkill, dissected the remains, and masturbated over the animals he had cut up (Griffiths, 2016). His desire to act on these deeds are due to his apathetic state. Since he lacks the means of making the effort to deploy the cognitive mode of empathy, he fails to develop identification with these creatures.
People say negative things on the media so if others see it, they believe it’s true and just believe what others think, but in reality it shouldn’t work like that. Humans say things poorly about pitbulls that give them a bad reputation, therefore these dogs end up in animal shelters. “Researchers found that potential pet owners were less likely to take home a dog if shelters called it a pit bull because the breed is negatively perceived and considered less friendly and more aggressive than other breeds,” (Source F). It takes pitbulls almost three times longer to be adopted from animal shelters. A lot of people just believe pits are mean and can hurt you based off of their past.
Many homicides are related to conflict or disputes between family members, friends and lovers. Thus, law enforcement officials are able to connect and link the victims to someone that they know. But in the case of serial killers, due to their aggressive and impulsive behavior, they usually do not have a set motive for their killings, so their victims can range from loved ones to complete strangers. Their constant drive for fulfillment and fantasy makes them even more susceptible to horrendous crimes against many different individuals. This makes it difficult for police to track serial killers and link them to the crimes.
Animal cruelty has been an unfortunate phenomenon for quite some time. The presence of serial killers among our societies have also been an unfortunate existence as well. Through current studies, researchers have been able to find the connection between serial killers or other violent offenders and it’s correlation to animal cruelty. In the past, the MacDonald triad was viewed as the most reliable avenue for determining who would become a violent offender. Today, more relevant and supported theories have been created.
As Albert Einstein once stated “The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.” Animal cruelty is the infliction of animals by humans. In other words animal cruelty is when humans disrespect animals in the act of hoarding, mills, dog fighting, slaughter, etc. Over the years Animal cruelty is similar in inflicts but different in laws , this is shown through the book Oliver twist (the Victorian era) compared to facts of now. The Similarities between the Victorian era and now include what people do to animals. For example in the Victorian era Sikes fought his dog “This resistance only infuriated Mr. Sikes the more; who, dropping on his knees, began to assail the animal most furiously.
People should not have wild animals as pets. According to “Killer Pets” by Blair Rainsford, “ In 2009, a pet chimp attacked his owner’s friend. He bit off most of the woman’s face. Hundreds of other wild pets have attacked or killed their owners”. This shows how wild pets are dangerous and can attack you at any moment.
Did you know that wild animals have been abused and have killed people as pets? Animals are abused and mistreated every day and deserve better treatment. They are usually trapped in cage with nowhere else to go, and feel depressed and miserable, but there are also good owners. Exotic animals are too amazing to be trapped in a cage and be someone's pet. These exotic animals can be really dangerous and harmful to people.
Should There be a Pet Offender Registry Many animals such as cats and dogs are abused almost everyday. Would a pet offender registry help prevent this abuse and cruelty of animals?The answer is simple, yes. The United States of America should make a pet offender registry because it will protect animals, pet abuse is illegal, and it helps identify violent people. A pet offender registry would help protect animals from those who would abuse them. A pet offender registry would alert shelters and pet adoption centers of those people who have abused animals in the past.
The shelters receive numerous companion animals many include pit bulls according to Animal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals “ an estimated 5,000 animal shelters operate in the United States and receive 5 million and 7 million companion animals annually” (ASPCA) Pit bull breeds are less likely to get adopted from a shelter. A dogs temperament is indicative of their owner and the care and training they are given. Pit bulls used to be considered the perfect nanny dogs, they are extremely friendly even with strangers because of that nature they were not considered to be good guard dogs. If a dog is not socialized properly they tend to be more aggressive this is not limited to Pit bulls alone. Often Pitbull owners use the dog in fighting matches which have increased the stigma among the breeds.
In the years between 1990 and 1994, hundreds of thousands of Rwandan refugees migrated and took camp near the edge of the Virunga National Park, in those four years, three silverback gorillas were killed causing mayhem and more deaths in multiple mountain gorilla social groups. In 2002 there were numerous incidents where poacher killed mountain gorilla; including a poaching situation in which six mountain gorillas were killed and three infants were stolen. In January 2003 three poachers were fined and even sentenced to four years in prison and also six others that found to be accomplices were fined and given up to two years in prison. With legal action finally taking place against poachers, we have begun to see less gorillas getting killed for sport. The mountain gorilla is a protected species in both National Parks, so enforcement of law is essential for the mountain gorilla survival, especially since the funds from the national is little to
This is hard to grasp because it is something that most people learn at a young age. People who have no guilt are called psychopaths. Psychopaths are not only associated with crazy serial killers. In fact, many psychopaths are living amongst the public in schools, workplaces, and businesses but are undetected. Most people only have that view of people with antisocial behavior as murderers though.
According to “peta.org” vet schools capture more than 1 million frogs in their natural habitats every year for dissection. In addition to the animals, mutilate in dissection, crude university-level biology and psychology demonstrations torment and kill more than 2 million of live mice, rabbits, rats, turtles, and other
Nuture isn’t the only thing that affects a serial killer. Many serial killers are affected by nature just like some are affected by nurture. Nature isn’t the most common effect, but it does play its part in creating a psychopath. Antisocial attitudes, values and beliefs, and negative family experiences and low levels of school or vocational achievement (Dawn Wissman, 2013). “It is also important to note that the "triad of evil" that has historically been used to identify social behavior typical of a serial killer is incorrect.” (Dawn Wissman, 2013).
As an example, Jeffrey Dahmer, also known as the cannibal killer, raped killed and dismembered seventeen men and boys between 1978 and 1991. Jeffrey was fascinated with animal corpses as a child. Jeffrey Dahmer parents are also note that he like to kill and torture animals, which started innocently enough with a bowl of tadpoles in the third
