This thread is largely for research purposes as I'm writing large (roughly 16 page) paper on the subject of animal cruelty. This survey is only a small part of the paper but the more I get from it the easier the rest of my paper will be. I needed to expand my sample size and gather answers from many different demographics and this community is the greatest place for me to do that
Please if you answer at all, try to be as honest as possible. The more you write the better but all answers are GREATLY appreciated!
Thanks to all who participate in this short survey:
Will we be receiving study results if we put our e-mail? (took the survey) Curious to see the statistics.
Everyone who submitted their e-mail will be sent the final copy of the essay if I get enough interest in this thread.
Thanks to everyone who is contributing, if you can share it with your friends/family that would be amazing
Oh also the reason I put the e-mail field in there is because if I'm intrigued by some of the answers of certain people I'd love to contact them with further questions regarding their comfortableness with being cited directly in the paper and possibly even an extended interview. Some of the people who have answered my survey have been very thorough with their answering of questions.(ty so much for that)
As far as statistical data, the questions are very open-ended so sorting through it will take a long time. (I have the entire semester to finish this paper) When I have a sufficient sample I'll gladly share my findings.
I've worked at shelters before and seen some pretty gruesome things. I do hope that the rigidity of animal cruelty laws increases, after all, abusing animals is 1 of the first signs of a budding psychopathic mind.
