    Why do some people like to torture small animals like cats or dogs?
    What is wrong with their mind and temperament that they like to do so?
    To inflict agony on animals?
    How to advise these people from not doing it?

    In Malaysia, the law is not strict on this offence.
    Basically nobody cares.
    I always heard the dog of my neighbour at the back bark in agony,
    I guess it was tortured, it is painful barking.
    What can I do?
    Go and investigate?
    I have no right to do so.


    Back to the question, Why people like to torture animals? What kind of psycho they have?

    Why? because they are gratified somehow at hurting something in their power.

    because they don't have the balls to torture lions and bears.
    probably the same thing that is wrong with a mind that wants to shit and piss on people.

    the same reason people hurt other people or are bullies.

    some like to do it just to control or overpower others or in some cases, take something from them.

    next time you hear it happen man up with a baseball bat and figure out whats going on and put justice into your own hands. Just don't forget to wear a mask.

    Primitive justice did a world of good in the wild west. If Malaysia's laws aren't up to date justice should be taken in the hands of the citizens.

    Justice is in the eyes of the beholder. It's a concept created by the human mind. Depending on the mentality of the "citizens," primitive justice can be anything but that. Ever heard of lynchings?

    In response to the original question, the mentality of these people is not easily pin pointed. Every brain processes things differently with different neural connections that make them think in certain ways.

    So fas as I know, no Law says man must die for torturing animals.
    Only compound is needed to pay for the wrong doing.

    Malaysia is an Islamic country, dog is not "halal" in Islam,
    so the muslims are cruel to dog,
    dogs found to not have license can be shot to death by personnel from Wild animal Department. :eek:

    You are absolutely right to be doubtful. Because if I was the victim I wouldn't take a neutral viewpoint on the issue. I would react according to what I thought would be appropriate coming from the victim viewpoint. Please make no mistake that I am not defending anybody for their actions.

    Not true, though men can not fight directly with Lions or Tiger, but we have other methods to subdue them, keep them in cage and starve them for 7 days without water and food. :D

    people will sue you to court.

    most malaysian muslims hate dog and kill dog,
    when I was small, I got an Indian neighbor, he kept a small breed dog,
    he did not register a license to keep the dog,
    the animal department people one day came and found his dog "illegal",
    and pulled the dog out of his door, he was begging but useless,
    the malay guy opened fire and shot the dog death in front of its master.

    Does that sound terrible.
    This incident happened 30 years ago when I was 6 years old, I always recall this incident when talking about dog.

    in poorer countries, animals are seen as an extra burden and nuisance. it's another mouth to feed when they can barely feed themselves or it's seen as food, unfortunately.

    In Malaysia, dog is not halal, cat is halal.

    You do not need license to keep cat, but you need one for dog.
    Do you think this is discrimination against dog?
    The reason given by our local government is basically dog can attack people, cat does not attack people, dog can bite people to death,
    so dog is a much more "dangerous animal" than cat.

    Therefore, dog has a lower status in Malaysia than cat.
