9. Can demons enter animals? In other words, can animals be demon-possessed?




Yes, demons can enter also into animals, for in the Bible it is written that when the evil spirits which were in the body of the demon-possessed man in the region of the Gadarenes met Jesus and Jesus commanded them to come out of that man, they begged Jesus saying: “Send us to the swine, that we may enter them. And at once Jesus gave them permission. Then the unclean spirits went out and entered the swine (there were about two thousand); and the herd ran violently down the steep place into the sea, and drowned in the sea” (Mark 5:12-13 – NKJV).

Nowadays there are many dogs, horses and other animals suddenly going mad and many times they injure themselves or people (this sudden rush of violence indicates the presence of an evil spirit). Sometimes they become man-killers and must be destroyed.
