Another type of love that leads to harm is the love of animals. It is better than the love of things because an animal understands your passions as a human being and has the capability of returning love too. Nevertheless, this type of love is still not as great as the love of human beings. The dilemma of loving animals is that it is a one dimensional relationship. It is dictated by you and you define the creature because you love it so much you expect it to become human which in essence is inhumane because after all, an animal as an animal, it is not human. Matthias Bier talks about the treatment of animals in the book Violent God-image: An Introduction to the Work of Eugen Drewermann. (2004) Examples of inhumane treatment of animals not only have to do with animal testing or being non-vegetarian. Inhumanities upon animal consist of doing anything to an animal that tries to make it closer to a human being such as dressing it up like a human, giving it a bath with human shampoo, or giving your dog a pedicure. An animal’s true essence is to be in the wild or in whatever environment it comes from and any humanization that human beings impose on an animal ends up being torturous for the animal. Humans fail to realize that an animal might be tortured by being treated as a human. Your own conception of good is imposed on the animal whereas it might not be good for them. For example, although we might think it is nice to give our pets a shower in our bathtub the chemicals we use on our bodies might be harmful for them and cause allergic reactions.
