most people have known for years that antifreeze is sweet-tasting and can kill animals. some even accidently. so sun-sentinel hasn't reported anything new you dopes. as for feral cats, i don't understand how people can't neuter their OWN animals. they let their male cats wander the neighborhoods at night resulting in god-knows-how many kittens. i have seen it myself. they don't care, its not like their male cat is going to bring home these kittens. just lazy and sad. trapping feral cats and fixing them is the only answer. and as for this guy that poisoned these poor cats, you are a sick sick person.

And if you REALLY love your cat, keep him indoors always. Anyone that lets his/her pets roam around outside doesn't love them.

DON'T STOP NOW, YOU HUNGRY-FOR-A-STORY DEGENERATES ARE JUST GETTING WARMED UP. THIS WILL LEAD TO MORE POISONINGS. I HOPE YOU ARE HAPPY.
I am glad to read that you are looking out for the safety of cats. Re: what the paper wrote, in terms of the form of poison, it is common knowledge (or at least it should be) that anti-freeze is a hazardous substance to cats, dogs, and even children, because of the sweet taste that it has. If it is not already the case, the manufacturers of anti-freeze MUST change the taste to make it offensive. The problem is, though, that sick people, like the one(s) responsible for this vicious crime, will us some other means. I pray that these psychopathic killers are found and serve severe justice for murdering cats; while the judge keeps in mind that dogs and children could potentially ingest the poison as well.

This is a clear warning to the citizens of Palm Beach Gardens. You need to pressure the police to find this animal killer. Experts in the field of criminal behavior have proven that people who exhibit violent tendencies toward animals eventually will exhibit the same tendencies toward humans. There is a serious problem here, and it should not be laughed off.

I can't imagine that the golf course where these cats are being poisoned doesn't have cameras. If so look at the films. Why would you fine anyone who feeds these strays? Your SPCA shelters are so full now where can you put them? I agree that taking them to a shelter is much better then what this person did. I think they should be caught and punished to the hardes extent of the law. Feeding starving cats should not be a crime. Whoever poisons innocent cats are just too lazy to take them to a shelter so they take the easy way out.

Why does being caring, compassionate, and just a good "humane" being, with a want for justice for all creatures, mutually exclude (in your small mind) the same for a human. So now if a child happen to get a hold of the poison that was left for these poor cats, and if the child drank the poison, that would be news worthy? And worthy that the criminal serve justice for their crime? Do you even have the capacity to comprehend what I am getting at here?

Please let me find those who did this- I have something for them.
Did you catch the article from this past weekend...about the low-lives who stole a dog and ate him? If you want to see the article/postings, they should still be listed on this paper... if you click on "Believe It or Not." I have been very upset and disturbed over it.

CORRECTION: I am sorry. The article/posts from this weekend re: the poor dog who was stolen and then eaten (by disgusting psychopathic killer sickos!)is under the section of this paper called "Strange But True."

"Whoever committed the crime faces nine counts of animal cruelty, a felony that carries a jail term of up to five years and up to a $10,000 fine for each count."

followed by:

"Walesky said there no longer is a cat problem in the community. There are also few leads into the investigation."

and:

"Walesky said. "We're looking for someone to come forward.""

Right now, there is some neighbor of this old man that hates cats, reading this article and laughing. They accomplished all they wanted, hurt an old man's heart, and you think they will turn themselves in for a five year sentence and 10,000 fine? They will lie low, and giggle in their own home. Their only punishment will come in the afterlife.

I am so very glad to see so many people posting on here that are taking this sick crime so very seriously. But I didn't see this reaction over the weekend re: the sick and disgusting low-lives who stole a dog and ate him. While reading the posts to that article, from people who were so uncaring, insensitive, and making sick comments to the whole issue; I was highly offended and hurt over the whole thing.
