I love animals and do all I can to protect them. I have four dogs and eight cats myself, all rescues. This article is much more than disturbing to me. So many kids do not respect anything or anyone and in turn take their anger out on the helpless and defenseless. To me anyway, any kid, or adult (and there are plenty of them too), who can do this is a criminal and should be treated as such with jail time followed up, under supervision of course, with a program where they work with animals; to care for them, get to know them as individuals, form bonds with them, and then to hopefully speak out to other youth in schools, etc. about how wrong the abuse of animals is. People seem to get into more trouble from vandalizing inanimate objects than they do for torturing and murdering animals. Animals are not "just animals," something you hear people saying all the time; they are intelligent, emotional beings who give all they have for those they love and who love them, once their trust is won. I am so so sick of people saying that animal abuse needs to be stopped because it leads to people abuse. This may be true in some cases but animal abuse needs to be stopped simply for the sake of the innocent and helpless animals because they deserve it and to abuse them is wrong and sick, period! I may be in the minority in saying this but the violent movies, violent video games, and the disrespect for nearly everything is playing a large part in the rise of animal abuse. Even on regular TV the hurting and killing of animals or the suggestion of it is made out to be an accepted form of entertainment!! And whether people want to hear this or not the proof is there that when God is forced out, satan enters.
