  1. Laws that purport to prevent and punish animal cruelty will never be sufficient until animals are no longer viewed as “property” in the eyes of the law. As long as animals are viewed as property (just as certain groups of people once were viewed as property,” no laws enacted will thwart animal abuse or subsequently punish the abuser. People will never be held accountable because in the eyes of the law, property can be dispensed of at will. The long held view of animals as “property” must change if we are to see any change in consequences for those who brutally abuse and neglect animals. Until this happens, abusers will continue to get off with a slap on the wrist.

  2. I’m glad King the cat got a home! But the people that do this kind of thing, will just try again because they got away with it the first time (actually he has a criminal record already). What’s the point of laws? If they get broken by the likes of this heartless douche!!! Maybe the judicial system needs to start cracking down on these low life scum bags. Sure…it may be an animal the person hurt (but…hey…that’s how serial killers start out)… the next time: what? a child, an elderly person? When is enough cruelty enough???

  3. Ofcourse, the bastard will get just a slap on the wrists.
    But, let’s not forget the wonderful outcome for King.
    He’s been adopted by gentle giant “hunka-hunka” Chris Sorda and gets to sleep with him every night.
