       a. These people are considered innocent who act in harsh ways unintentional.
2. Animal abusers do it on purpose, but they don't mistreat for a long period of time.
       a. They can be peer pressured to show off.
       b. They might have anger issues.
3. Animal abusers hurt animals intentionally because they enjoy seeing them suffer, thus in return, they feel powerful.
       a. They act cruelly because animals can't speak for themselves, whereas people can.
       b. They feel powerfulif their animal is killing another animal.
