Animal Abuse 2 Animal abuse from starvation is happening all around us and could be helped by taking the time to call and report the situation. Starvation is a very cruel form of torture that is being done to animals that are kept on chains and in fences all over the world. It is a long and painful death. Not only humans have feelings and emotions, but so do our pets as well. There are ways we can help this matter. Animal cruelty can be either deliberate abuse or simply the failure to take care of an animal. Either way, and whether the animal is a pet, a farm animal, or wildlife, the victim can suffer terribly. Don’t despair, though—anyone can take steps against cruelty (Humane Society 2010). How does it feel to starve to death?

When a person is starved to death they suffer a lot of pain. They have bad stomache pains, bad headaches, their arms and legs cramp from not eating, and they try to cry out from the pain but they can't shed any tears because there is no fluid in their body. A person can live 10 to 14 days without food and water. Eventually they will go in to a comma right before death. Their kidneys will shut down and then from there own everything in the body starts shutting down (Health and Wellness, Jasmine Starr, 2006). So if a person feels the pain and suffering from starvation an animal will feel the same pain but cannot tell anyone what they are feeling. Animals have emotions just like we do.

It is probably safe to say that we have all noticed emotions from our pets.
