Animal Abuse....need to get it off my chest
On the news this past week a 16 year old boy multilated 3 kittens in front of his 7 year old brother. What is wrong with our society? I wrote an article to our local newspaper (hopefully they will publish it). My article states that anyone who would abuse an animal is capable of committing murder or abuse to humans. These poor animals have no control over what happens to them. They arrest these people, they get out of jail and do it all over again. According to some information I found it stems from the parents and home surroundings. You never heard about these kinds of things when I was growing up. One of my cats was abused sometime during his life by someone and it has taken years for him to overcome fear of people. Animals feel pain just as us humans do and its just not right what happens to them. I get so upset with people. Hopefully I never see any abuse to an animal....not too sure what I would do.
Here is the article from the newspaper (It's so upsetting you may not want to read it)
