I think this is just a terrible thing to do an innocent animal. I hope when the police catch the person or parties doing this they put them behind bars & throw away the key. I mean really who would want to do something so cruel? I've read articles that have done studies on things like this and they grow up yo be serial killers

Many serial killers started out with cruelty to animals.

How many serial killers have you known? Do you hang around with these kind of people. I shoot a box of Kelloggs Corn Flakes you think that makes me a cereal killer.

Hardly the point. Cruelty to animals does not mean one will be a mass murderer of course, but many mass murderers have a strong antipathy to the value of life to begin with and start with animals and graduate to bigger things. As far as a cereal killer is concerned, you can't kill something that is already dead (LOL).

If a person shoots a vicious dog do you think it's cruelty? How about hunters or farmers that kill their beef, pigs or sheep for food? If my dog is old and it needs to be put down and I shoot it in the head do you think it's cruelty? Animal cruelty means different things to different people. If my dog is ran over and is suffering is it cruel to shoot him??

You are starting to get very technical. There is a big difference between killing dangerous animals, suffering animals, killing for meat or clothing vs. killing an animal just for the fun of it.

The poster means when a dog is cruelly abused for no good reason.Many times a man will kill a dog to get back at the wife/girlfriend.

I agree.What you said has been proven and i posted a link proving what i said.I have read too many stories where they get abused or killed out of retaliation towards someone else and many times that person does go on to abuse human beings.

I don't kill them for the joy of killing them or for the fun of it. I kill them to protect my cattle, pigs, chickens, deer, my pet dogs and cats. Keep your dog under control just as I do mine. I do not allow my dogs to run loose. It's not my job to control other peoples dogs but I will if they look to be of the vicious breed and come on my farm.

If the animal does provide a bona fide and not simply a paranoid imagined threat, you are withing your rights to use lethal force. I have a dog and three cats of my own, the cats are all 13 years old or older.

Someone took our 3 dogs and we could not get anything done. They say a dog is just another animal. I say they are family and should be treated as such. They have rights too.

People that do this is too afraid to face someone that can handle them.They have to pick on some poor animal.Yeah,they need the same treatment,only worse.I wish I could be the judge on this one!
