This jerk needs to be shot himself.

What an ass. He'd better do time for that.

I cant read these stories anymore, I am starting to get so upset by the animal cruelty in the world. Why? I just dont understand why? I cherish my animals almost more than I do people.

This story is outrageous, my heart goes out to that family effected by this tragedy

That guy should be duct-taped to a chair and have rocks thrown at him.

Imagine how he is with people. This person is seriously disturbed. Hope they keep future cats inside. Sounds like the kitten almost got ran over.
(okay, that was me being level-headed. I truly believe this sadistic fool needs to be tossed in a pit to rot)

I can't bear to read it; after many years as an animal activist and social justice activist, I still can't bear these atrocities. Shooting would be far too good for this monster.

I agree. But what to do with people like this? No punishment we could give, no matter how heinous, could teach empathy. It seems to be something that is taught young, comes naturally or never really learned.

Unfortunately that is true. I am sure he sees the cat as some disposable creature and will probably never change.

In instances like these, I agree 100% and since this is a good site which prohibits some kinds of talk, I can't say what I would do to monsters like this given my druthers, except to say that the ancient Egyptians had the right idea.

But as for teaching compassion, I will say that there are apparently many instances of people becoming compassionate who were not so before, when they are given access to compassionate people and attitudes, and exposed to life in close relation to animals in a compassionate and caring setting. By that, I mean the work of sanctuaries such as Best Friends and Green Chimneys -- each has programs that team at-risk youth with supervisors and provide exposure to animals in a good setting. Generally, those who "hate" animals actually don't have any real experience with animals (except as victims) and their attitudes, like prejudices and intolerance of all kinds, are inculcated and reinforced by parents, grandparents, clergy, peers, and/or others close to them. The media plays a huge role now as well, and we all know how the domestic media is poisoned with images of cruelty and gratuitous violence, apathy, even callous and sick"humor" involving violence to animals. Remove all that and expose people -- especially children and teenagers and young adults -- to a society where people actively care for an and nurture animals and that is the norm and the thing to do, and many of these former troubled people can and do change. We can't kill 'em all, so we need to change 'em.

Very very sad.

I hope that he gets caught and is fully prosecuted to the extent of the law. There is no reason for that to have occurred.
post #13 of 21
I wonder if he injured the cat by accident, then shot it to kill it? If he had broken its back or something, he might have wanted to put it out of its misery.

Still evil--I mean, the family should've been there to say goodbye, if the kitten was really dying--but at least there'd be an explanation, if that's what happened.

OH!! come on!! be real!!stop making excuses for sick b*********

I was in the vet clinic tonight and There was a woman (on the phone) who... while trying to seperate two dogs that were fighting and she couldnt she went in the kitchen and got a knife and stabbed the dogThen stuffed it in a cupboardthen called the vet because it wasnt dead

Some people think pets are just flesh and meat but thats not surprising when we live in a society that thinks its ok to butcher cows and sheep but not dogs and catsThere is no difference to me
post #16 of 21
That is very sad.

I do agree that this man appears to be very disturbed at the very least because I don't believe anybody in their right mind would do something like this.
post #17 of 21

come home! You were so Big and Bad shooting that poor lil' baby! Why ya scared now? asshole!
Can't even imagine what that kind of mind thinks when it clicks like that?

I guess I'm just innocent. I've always seen things in the best possible light... always been disappointed. That's just me.

There were witnesses to the shooting, including the young child the cat belonged to. He just did it out of anger or something, no injury. As of Saturday the man hadn't gone home yet, but I haven't heard an update since then. He WILL be charged when they find him.
post #21 of 21
Charged, huh? Well, I personally hope for something a little stronger than that. But this is a nice site, so I won't say WHAT.
