I've just written some sentences and it seems to me that the usage of "it" is kinda strange or even wrong in them. Are they wrong? How can I say it in a correct way?
I assumed it were the humans that had wounded him before.
"I realized that it was Hazen, the killer brutal animal that had made her suffer and had taken dad from us.
Please note that before this sentence, I've used the pronoun "he" for Hazen although he is an animal. So mentioning Hazen as "it" doesn't look good enough. Is it correct to say so even though we know that Hazen is a "he"?
