If you can’t love an animal, you are incapable of fully loving a human

My mom always said this, and I see it to be true. I think it is different to not like cats or dogs or not want them, but I am talking about physically abusing an animal. If you wouldn’t do it to a child, don’t do it to an animal, and if you do it to either the consequences should be ear the same.

My family has rescued over 60 animals in my lifetime, most of which members of my family has adopted. They are amazing animals. Even the cats that were deemed “ferral” and unable to ever be tame we managed to make loveable.

@lia22  That’s disgusting. I don’t know how anyone could hurt an animal and it makes me feel sick to my stomach. Seriously, stories like this outrage me and I can’t believe that animal cruelty doesn’t get a harsher punishment. You’d have to be a psychopath to do something like that, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it escalated.

@Sweet_Tea  If someone does do something bad to that guy, I’ll gladly contribute to their legal defense fund.

So so so angering and sad, I just cried reading this. That poor innocent animal, I just don’t understand our world sometimes.

Animal abuse laws need stricter consequences. Its sickening and sad. I hope he lives in fear, in fact, I would cheer if someone did the same to him.

Far be it from me to defend an animal abuser, because what he did is sickening and makes me want to cry, but…people generally don’t seem to have a good understanding of insanity pleas. Insanity itself is more a legal term than a psychological one, so when you’re talking about insanity they usually mean a psychotic disorder like schizoprehnia, where you can suffer a serious break from reality. 

Saying “people who are insane dont know it” is just blatantly BS. People with schizoprehnia can still have considerable insight into their condition when they’re stabilized. Unfortunately it takes a lifetime of medication in the right dosages and therapy to manage the symptoms, and most will experience psychotic breaks. It’s very possible, if this man is truly suffering from paranoid schizophrenia, that he could have seen the animal as a real danger. They see, hear and believe things that are absurd to the rest of us during these episodes. 

Besides which, insanity pleas don’t happen (successfully) nearly as often as most people think. It takes a lot more than just saying “oh hey I was crazy when I killed that guy, sorry.” 

 

this story made me sick to my stomach and I hate that so many beautiful, loving animals are hurt. But I also feel like people need a better education on the prevalence and treatment mental illness in this country.

So.. I am NOT reading the article… I have very little faith in humanity as it is… but does anyone know what happened to the dog? Is he alive? Is he doing ok?
