It's a nice video, but if I can be a bit critical... The song (If Everyone Cared) is overused a lot. A little over half the video seemed to have nothing to do with animal abuse, as you were just flashing random images of animals who may or may not have been abused. And I don't understand the significance of the picture at the beginning of the sign that says if you tag your pet it'll be returned to you. What does that have to do with animal abuse?
Other than that, it was a nice beginner's video.

Animal abuse is bad and all that, but there are a lot more important things to work on. Like poverty, AIDS, cancer, abuse to other human beings, etc. In my opinion, we need to work on the problems other human beings are dealing with, before we worry our head with animal abuse. After all, what have animals done for society? What CAN animals do for society? Nothing.
That's cruel. There's absolutely no way any human being should have to go through that.

As for what have animals done for society, man's domestication of animals pretty much made our society possible. Some of them get a pretty decent deal, others not so much, but we wouldn't be where we are without the exploitation of animals and as they are members of our society without a vote, I think we are morally obligated to act on their behalf in a thoughtful way.
Pramrider said:You're right, Maverick. Let me retract that statement. Instead of the cage, dump the animal's owner in the middle of nowhere to fend for themself for days on end after always having their food and other needs provided. That would be more fitting since it's basically what owners are doing by dumping unwanted animals out on deserted country roads. Only difference is the owner would have enough sense to stay out of the path of cars and trucks, not necessarily so with the abandoned animals.
And btw, revenge doesn't solve anything. It only makes things worse.
Maverick said:I too believe we should stop animal abuse and imprison the animal abusers.
There's ABSOLUTELY no REASON an animal should have to be staved, beatin, burned and abuse. If they are 'big enuf" to beat on an animal they a "big enuf" to take the beatin.That's cruel. There's absolutely no way any human being should have to go through that.
