* in the ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' games, you can display the fish, bugs, and sea creatures that you can catch in your homes as decoration. The tanks are far too small for the fish to even move around (unless they happen to be tiny species). Goldfish are also displayed in goldfish bowls and the bird cage item also contains an absurdly tiny cage. Of course, the games aren't supposed to be realistic.

* In ''VideoGame/TheMagicSchoolBus Explores the World of Animals'', one mini-game about the food chain has a toucan eating an avocado. Avocados are very toxic to birds.

* Animal Planet's ''Series/CallOfTheWildman'' centered around show star Ernie "Turtleman" Brown Jr. catching and removing wild animals with his bare hands instead of using the kinds of tools that most professional animal control services use, like poles, snake hooks, or live traps. This put both him ''and'' the animals he was catching at unnecessary risk.

This put both him ''and'' the animals he was catching at unnecessary risk. One of the prime examples was an episode where he grabbed a coyote by the tail and lifted it off the ground. Like all mammals, an adult coyote is too heavy to be safely lifted in this manner, doing so meant that it was at massive risk of a spinal injury.

* In ''Manga/GingaNagareboshiGin'', [[BadassGrandpa Gohei Takeda]] trains the protagonist, Gin, to be a bearhound by beating him with a piece of wood, feeding him only raw bear meat (which is mentioned to stink so terrible that even ''adult dogs'' cower at the smell of it) and forcing him to get pieces of aforementioned meat from the bottom of a large basin filled with water. Did we mention that this TrainingFromHell started when Gin was still supposed to be ''nursed by his mother''? While he did grow up into a through-and-through badass, making a puppy go through stuff like that in real life would definitely not end half as well.

* ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'' contains many examples of unrealistic (or bad!) treatments of animals. Granted, though Jon provides some of what Garfield eats (and Jon often tries to serve cat food), he often does the obtaining food on his own, but with all the lasagna, ice cream, cake, candy, etc he eats, it's amazing he's alive.

On the other hand, [[DoesNotLikeSpam his hatred of raisins]] is helpful given it causes kidney failures in cats.

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': The family tree published at the end of Chapter 12 shows a couple of cats from the JustBeforeTheEnd prologue with lines coming out from their portraits, suggesting that they had kittens and possibly have very distant descendants in the main story's era. Both of those cats belonged to people living in urban areas of nothern Europe in NextSundayAD, in other words in a place and time where spaying cats was a highly recommended procedure.

* ''Literature/TheresAHairInMyDirt'' (by ''ComicBook/TheFarSide'' author Gary Larson) follows a woman who thinks herself a FriendToAllLivingThings... and could not be further from the truth. Among others, she tosses a "turtle" into a pond (actually a tortoise, so she just condemned it to drown), returning a baby bird to its nest (where it gets tossed out-again- by its sibling), and rescuing a mouse from a snake causes her to catch the virus the mouse was carrying, killing her.

* The Animal Planet series ''My Big Fat Pet Makeover'' is basically ''Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition'' [[RecycledInSpace for pets]]. Usually, the root of a pet's problems in any given episode boils down to [[Viewers Are Morons basic things people should know]], like the importance of not overfeeding said pet.
