some of us struggle to keep our precious pets alive & other creeps ....well, are CREEPS
I've got no problem with the death penalty for them, "thin the herd".
Actually, I thought a year was a bit harsh. This was a first offense.
I don't know why everyone is so upset about this. I have learned a few things over the years, and perhaps I can share that knowlege with everyone.
Starvation is a good way to go. It's painless. Just ask Terri Schiavo.
Killing animals is good. Just ask PETA.
Perhaps if this family was a member of PETA, they would not only have avoided jail time but maybe even earned a medal.
I knew it would only be a matter of time before certain FReepers would arrive on this thread to somehow attempt to draw comparisons to human abortion. This discussion is about the crime of animal abuse and hopefully how it can be reduced. There are plenty of other threads that deal directly with the topic of abortion.

OK now is a good time to ask all kind hearted freepers to support your local rescue groups, especially the ones that take all breeds. These people are often financed only through adoption fees and have large out of pocket expenses. Please give whatever you can, money for vet care, food, bedding, cat litter, often office supplies. Please put it where your heart is.
What you do to the least of these, you do unto me.
