During the start of the 00's the BC courts reconded that home invation was 1 step down from attepted murder but above rape on the traumatisation scale. A person minding their own business, sitting at home with their family gets their home invaded and that traumatises them severely.
This cat this has put all that trauma to the side and taken over the whole incident. Think not only of the trauma to the cat but the owner of the cat, and the community. You now know that people in your community are willing to kick in your front doors and kill your pets in front of you. What's next your children.
I can not believe they are getting away with a slap on the wrist like this. They used to hand that type of discripline out for petty crime.
