Unlike you, I refuse to stoop to the immature and childish name calling. "Amused Crack-Head..." Funny! Did that take you a few hours to think up? Probably.I am amazed at the heartless comments from the low-life community. "Amused Crack-Head" knows the "pain" of having cats in his flower bed?? You won't know what pain is until you mess with MY family, and my pets are included. Put your f-ing garbage in a can, for chrissake! Put some mothballs in your flowerbed! Why on earth would anyone do something that sick, because they're annoyed? Do you have any idea of the prolonged, extreme agony these creatures suffered? Would you want someone to do that to you, your family, YOUR pets? You couldn't think of a better solution? Are you that stupid? Or just born without conscience. Five years is not enough. I'd LOVE to see at least five years stick, maybe word would get around that it's not a good idea to take out your frustrations on innocent creatures. Yeah, they are innocent. That's what cats do. And dogs. They don't go to school to learn how to think like humans. It would be nice to have pets kept indoors but that don't happen in the real world. Wild animals get into trash too. Because they smell it, they're attracted to it, they have no idea what mean, SICK humans are capable of.****, Snyder.
The bottom line for this story is that if people want to own a pet, then they need to be RESPONSIBLE pet owners. Letting your cat out at night to roam the neighborhood to make a mess in other people's yards, urinate on their vehicles or yard is NOT responsible. I don't see a bunch of dogs out at night to roam free, so why are cats different? Don't even go with that territorial and "wild instinct" argument. Dogs are descendants of wild animals, so it won't hold water.
If you want to keep those filthy felines alive, and IF you love them as you say, then you won't let them outside at night. To let them roam the streets free like that is equal to animal cruelty in my book, which is what this man is being charged with.
