Ernest Bornemann (1990, cited by Rosenbauer 1997) coined the term zoosadism for those who derive pleasure from inflicting pain on an animal, sometimes with a sexual component. Some extreme examples of zoosadism include necrozoophilia (a portmanteau between necrophilia and zoophilia), the sexual enjoyment of killing animals, similar to "lust murder" in humans, sexual penetration of birds such as hens (which is fatal to the hen) and strangling at orgasm, mutilation, sexual assault with objects (including screwdrivers and knives), interspecies rape, fire or burning, and sexual assault on immature animals such as puppies.

Acts of zoosadism are often a precursor to the abuse of humans.
