The Bad, the Good and then the Ugly — 10 Comments

  1. This is terribly sad. I think it was kids just out having a laugh. They really should be thrown in jail for good. I don’t think one should offer any kind of forgiveness for this. Even if the perpitrator(s) show remorse its clearly just an act to escape punishment. It’s clearly the act of sociopathic people born of zsociopathic parents. Its heart breaking. I hope they are caught and shot.

    • I wonder whether it was kids. Are you sure? If it was kids it is indicative of the sort of culture generated by some parents and environments that is so out step with what is decent and fine. It is terribly sad and not good as a generally indicator of the wellbeing of a country.

      • I think it was a bunch of idiot drunk teenagers out with daddy’s guns. Poor education is the underlying cause of this sort of thing, especially when it’s adults who do it.

        • dw please tell me more. I think I agree. I think there are millions of fine cat caretakers in America. You know far more than me about the culture of different groups of people from different parts of America. Is the south more basic than the more refined northeast or is that heresy? I do disagree with the gun laws though. Without easy access to guns would this crime have happened?

          • Sure there are millions. I hope Liz will write on this. She is more articulate and would educate us all on the subject. There are so many cultural differences in our country, it is as if some are from other planets all together.

            • California is more like Europe. We are closer in mentality to Californians. I am not sure why. The people in the south seems to be more culturally backward in relation to their attitude to wildlife. Although I am guessing somewhat. It may help people understand how to improve animal welfare and our relationship with the wild cats if people could tell explain why California is more progressive than say Kansas.

  2. Hi Michael,

    Not the kind of story I want to take in due to it’s tragic nature. But it’s newsworthy, it should help create awareness, and it merits a discussion.

    First question is what sort of person would dump a couple dozen domesticated cats on a property and why?

    A person who has no reverence for the life of animals might do that. I can’t imagine any justification for it. Obviously that person must have known that many in the group of 25 wouldn’t live long.

    It makes me wonder why this person didn’t try to adopt them out.

    Second question is what are the motives and what sort of person would shoot or harm a cat?

    Answer may be young people who haven’t been raised to respect animals. Could be a hunting crew that likes to kill any sort of animal. Could be a group of drunks. Could be someone that hates cats.

    It’s been my experience that in the U.S.A so many people respect dogs but so few respect or even like cats.

    Could it be that the later don’t understand cats? Do they not understand their personalities? Is it because they are smaller, more independent, and less gregarious than dogs?

    Where I grew up and where ever I have moved I’ve noticed that relatively few people like cats.

    If people understood cats better, would they care about them or like them better?

    Thanx for bringing this issue to light,

      • Hi Michael,

        As sad as the story may be, I’m glad you wrote it. It’s an important issue that needed to be brought to the attention of the public.
