How bad can humankind get? Read the following;

A man in Pretoria (South Africa) is currently in jail due to cruelty to animals. He was found to be pulling his dog on a leash behind the car back to his home.
When confronted by the public he said that he was teaching the dog a lesson for walking around in the streets. The cushions on all 4 paws were gone, she had patches of missing skin and hair all over her body as she was pulled on the tar.
The vet on call also said that you could see that the dog had a hitory of abuse due to old marks and scrapes.
The reporter said that the dof wagged her tail each time a person came near her - She even licked the vets hands as he was attending her obviously serious injuries.
According to witnesses the man was smiling while he was "punishing" the dog.

WHAT DO YOU THINK WILL BE A SUFFICIENT PUNISHMENT FOR THIS GUY?

They should drag the bastard behind the car thats taking him to jail for a long stretch (if their is any justice)

The same exact "punishment" he placed on the dog. He should be forced to run barefoot behind a moving car til his feet are the equivalent of hamburger meat.

wrapping him in bacon and locking him in a kennel with pitbulls? maybe a little harsh.

About a year ago I found one of my 4 cats with his eye hanging out and a broken jaw - obviously he was hit with something heavy.
Last year in Richardsbay (over christmas period) somebody left a puppy in a box in front of the vets house. The puppy was bitten by another dog (One eye had to be removed)
The guy was found and he said that he didn't want to pay the vet fees. The story appeared in the local newspaper and exactly 4376 offers for adoption for the puppy came in.
The guy was criminally charged and got a R5000-00 fine.

I read in Time magazine about a guy who had microwaved his cat for a minute. Someone had told him that animals were immune to microwaves. The cat suffered some internal organ damage and the skin got burned.

A trait common to serial killers is cruelty to animals...

This gruesome act just happened in my neck of the woods...

A couple of years ago, some college students here in Toronto videotaped themselves torturing and killing a cat. They did this to somehow show everyone else how hypocritical they were for eating meat. Story here.

How about this moron;

Zoo visitor's cruelty to rabbit

He is facing jail. Hopefully.

This makes me sick...and personally I think they should get the same as they gave to the animals and more! P***es me off!!!

I just wish that I can someday come upon somebody like this - I will beat the living hell out of this person - Sorry - not a violant person, but nothing upsets me more than cruelty to animals.
Not even cruelty to children and old people upsets me as much as cruelty to animals - People can still talk - animals can't - they suffer in silence.

For the ones who responded that an "eye for an eye" type punishment should be enacted upon these people...Do you feel the same way for humans? Instead of murderers getting to go to sleep (painlessly) and not waking up, they get what they gave?

YUP! Sure do. I think public hangings should be brought back, personally.
03/21/2006 05:52:40 PM · #15
Definately I feel the same way. Funny enough that in South Africa you will be in bigger trouble for shooting a Rhino than you would be for murder.
I still say - Abused people can talk - Animals can't talk. They must endure. They are cute when small, but they grow up and is neglected. I saw a BIG Gray Dane (These dogs are the size of small horses) being kept in a 2X2meter backyard in a flat. That is cruel.

I documented the recovery of this horse (& 4 more) for the local horse rescue that had JUST started up in my area.

1 day after being picked up by the rescue and taken to the vet: Don't let the winter hair fool you he's SKINNY! and he had a nervous system disease that made you wonder if he touched a pebble with his foot would he fall down. Very unstable. I don't know how much $$ in donated services the veternarian gave the rescue for this one horse. The other choice was euthanasia.

7 months later and adopted by a friend of mine.

Holy cow...this is awful. Just read the two stories linked above, and all I can say is that I just lost my appetite. The things people do are just sick. I stand by fotomann and the others; the people who do these things ought to have them done in return, instead of a slap on the wrist.

DITTO !!!!!!!!!!!! Criminals should be punished in the same manner that they treated their victims regardless of the crime. Of course humiliation, torture, and murder of people is the obvious one. They're a waste of air !
Well if I saw anyone being cruel to an animal, actions would speak louder than words....I'd probably end up on assault charges ! :-)

I absolutely cannot stand cruelty to animals. In Canada, the laws against it are a joke. Some guy filmed himself violently torturing and eventually killing a cat, calling it "art," and not only did he get away scot-free, he also ended up getting it shown at a film festival.

I'm a bit more extreme than most, but I think animal right should be right on par with human rights. Humans are, after all, members of the animal kingdom. We're no better than anything else. In fact, as people like the above prove, we're much much worse.

A friend of mine was picked up for shoplifting just after she turned 18, so she had to sit in the police office for hours while they were completely treating her like crap, while in the office next to her she overheard that the two 15 year old boys who were sitting in there were being joked around with and offered soda and chips by the cops. They were picked up for torturing and maiming a cat after school in the parking lot of a shopping mall.

-_-

Absolutely heartbreaking - I go back to my original message about the dag that was pulled behind the car - After all this cruelty and "punishment" and abuse - She still had it in her to wag her tail when somebody spoke to her - she even licked the vets hands as he was treating her wounds.
WHY HURT AN ANIMAL LIKE THIS????

Would you still be in favor of that punishment knowing that it has come to light that a few individuals executed by the state had been wrongly convicted?

Not that again - All we are saying is that these people that does these things to animals must get a bigger punishment than what they are getting now.

I worked with The Ontario Humaine Society for years and came face to face with some horror stories like this one and truely enough there is not enough punishment that these ignorant people recieve, I read most of your replys and i agreee with each one ( I really like the wrapped in bacon one) and I personally would like to see Justice FOR the helpless animals that endure the abuse and Justice DONE to the idiots who seem to think its OK to beat up on an animal. Animals Rights all the way!
