Sometimes people are just plain mean.
This past week we learned that puppies at an animal rescue in Scottsboro, Alabama, were poisoned with antifreeze after someone scaled two fences, one of which was 6 feet high, and put antifreeze in their water bowl. At present, one of the puppies is still hanging on.
Also, someone shot an emu at Rikki’s Refuge in Virgina. Bullet went into Mary’s thigh, breaking the bone and causing massive bleeding. Mary died within minutes.
In each case, there’s a reward for information leading to an arrest of the person or persons responsible.
Harming or killing animals is not funny. It’s not cute. It’s cruel. People who harm animals in this way will soon have no qualms about doing the same to a human.
If you have knowledge of any person who willfully harms an animal, report it to your local law enforcement officials. And if they don’t do anything, call the news media.
