If Jacobi loves animals as she said she should thank Young for helping a cat in distress -left alone for two days. Inexcusable! The trapper should be severely penalized under DEC law says he cannot leave a trap unchecked for more than 12 hours. He left it for two days and is therefore in violation. I applaud Thomas Young for helping innocent victims of our throw-away society. His neighbors are selfish, cruel people who only think of themselves. What a despicable legacy for our youth. Way to go Thomas Young!

It seems to me that the underlying issue is the long standing bad feeling between the neighbors and a basic difference of philosophy. The Jacobis say they love animals, but their actions indicate otherwise. Mr. Young's actions prove that he actually does care about G-d's creatures.
Also it is mandated that wildlife traps are checked at least once a day and preferably twice a day to prevent this situation. Where is the love, Mrs. Jacobi? Will the Jacobis be arrested? Maybe they will have the kitten arrested for trespassing as well.
