Not sure if this has been posted about on the Bee yet, but I just wanted to bring attention to this widely publicized story of a puppy in the Boston area who was tortured so badly she had to be euthanized by veterinarians after bring brought into their clinic.
Here is a link with more information:
This makes me hurt so badly. I can’t imagine ever treating an animal this way. Tears instantly start flowing when I think about her. And then I think of my pup, and how much I love him, and it makes me want to go home and give him the biggest hug ever. I feel so bad after I give him a small smack on the butt for being a bad boy. I just can’t imagine what this poor girl was thinking or feeling.
Having the psychology background that I do, I can tell you that whoever did this is seriously mentally ill. Animal abuse of this nature is characteristic of sadistic, murderous, sociopaths. Jeffrey Dahmer tortured and killed animals for pleasure when he was a child.. The person who did this to Puppy Doe needs serious psychological intervention.
This case of abuse has also brought about many petitions, and possible legislation, to end the sale/adoption of animals through Craigslist by anyone but certified adoption agencies. I can’t say I disagree with this idea.
