An animal who is trained to be aggressive and uncontrolled by a human grip. This is not cruelty that we are training them to become deadly? If humans are getting injured we can provide facilities to them.But, What about these animals, if they can’t speak that doesn’t mean they do not get injured or harmed. Can’t we see that these too are getting equally harmed as us. But, It’s all humanity, which is getting lost somewhere beneath the heaps of money.
