More animal abuse in Florida...

I can't take it anymore. What is wrong with people??? I really believe certain people should NOT under any circumstance be allowed to be around animals AT ALL, not to work with them, not to have as pets, because they don't see them as living creatures that require care, compassion and understanding.

I was sitting here in the production hall listening to the news on the TV while marking my show. The 5 o'clock show was on and they did a story on the latest animal abuse case. It was so hard to listen to ... a teenager, 19 years old, got into a dispute with his girlfriend. He then proceeded to take out his anger on her 6-week-old puppy. He picked it up and threw it into the air "as high as he could" ... after the puppy landed he proceeded to "kick" and "stomp" the puppy "as hard as he could" not once, not twice, but three times. He also choked the puppy - 6 weeks old!!! He also threatened his girlfriend that he would "cut her dog up with a machete" (I'm quoting from the police report).


This precious little animal arrived at the veterinarian with 2 dislocated knees and internal bleeding. Miraculously, the little guy made it through the night.

According to the police report - that barbarian admitted that he did "all of the above" at least 6 times to the puppy.

I've already sat through that package once. Now, I have to sit through it again, not to mention what I had to read to write it here.

This is one of those days I truly, truly hate my job.

Oh my goodness, that is just horrible! I almost couldn't bear to read that. How can people be so heartless? I don't get it. I really, really don't. Taking revenge for absolutely no reason on a poor, defenseless animal that means no harm is the worst kind of crime in my book.

I don't get it either, and it is also the worst crime in my book too. That act of violence is unacceptable. Luckily the guy that did it is rotting in jail right now, but that is only a temporary measure. Everybody is expecting he'll be free as a bird soon because these crimes were not committed against a human being. I had to sit through that story 4 times by the time my shift ended, and I couldn't cry because I was directing, I had to hold my composure.

On a related note, My friend Jen, aka rawgreendragon and I were talking last night about going pescatarian. She had watched a video on the internet about abuse going on at beef and poultry farms, and it's just unspeakable!!! It's so disturbing, and you're watching these people taking part in it and you wonder why they don't do something to stop it!!!
