Re: Animal Cruelty
People who abuse animals (specifically dogs, ala Mike Vick) are the lowest of the low. I hate anyone with a passion that abuses an innocent animal. I was hesitant to open the thread because I figured I would see a picture like that. It upsets me a lot to see that.
What kind of person can do that? Those are the people I just wish would die a slow painful death. A lot of these dogs that get abused do absolutely nothing to deserve any kind of punishment like that. You have to be a dog lover for this to really hit home. People like TheLoneShark just don't understand. Who cares if you got attacked by a few dogs? Your logic is idiotic. Dogs just hate you right? Do you hear dogs having conversations and say "Hey this guy looks vulnerable, let's bite him." I never got attacked by a dog. I've had a few run at me before, but I just stood there and they stopped. Never run from dogs, or provoke them. That's probably what you're doing.
You have to realize for the few bad dogs that are out there, there are many more good dogs. The reason there are bad dogs is because the owners abuse them, they get treated badly in general, or they get trained to be bad (usually ones in dogfighting rings). Dogs can change with the proper training, ever seen the Dog Whisperer? Anyway, just think about if someone did that to your dog (or animal) without you knowing. I'm a laid back guy, but if I ever seen someone abuse an animal in person I don't know what I would do.
It makes me sick to think about it.
