Italian military officer court-martialed for saving a cat’s life — 17 Comments

      • I’ve already read about this and signed the petition a while ago- what a stupid bunch of a**hole*. I often read about similar things in the US military where the commanding officer won’t let the soldiers help any animals. What is it with these f*ckt*rds anyway? Is it just that they get off on power and enforcing stupid rules?

        That’s what I think.

          • Sorry for being so rude but hearing yet another story of insubordination of army people because they want to love or care for an animal is downright depressing and in just about every case I hear about there is no tactical reason for it – it’s just a principled or non principled power trip – or so it seems.

            • Here’s another such story involving military personel in the wonderful animal heaven that is Romania. They save the dogs in the end so it’s all ok. Short read. Why do the US have bases everywhere man? In Okinawa they have been protesting the crime, pollution and noise of a huge US base there for years. They finally are going to try and move the base away from where people live. There’s huge bases in Germany, England, Poland, Korea – just about every country they invaded throughout history they basically never left. That’s how it goes. At least they didn’t invade England – yet.

  1. It’s not just her immediate superiors that are mad. It’s all the people involved in allowing the charges to escalate up to a court martial. Not only do they display an ignorance of the regulations pertaining to this case but show a lack of common sense and wisdom. The Italian military has lost an important medical officer. I am sure she won’t be doing any more volunteering any time soon. Hopefully the dire consequences of this stupidity will be seen by the MoD and those lunatics removed. Evidently the selection process for officers is defective. Loonies slip through. This is a hard knock for morale and recruiting.

  2. Madness, surely she should have been commended for doing what she did, she obviously has a heart and hearts must not be allowed in a military machine! She’s best out of there, she’s a brave, kind and good woman. I’d sign a petition to support her.

  3. This lady should be rewarded not court martialed, what is wrong with the miltary that she will be punished for being humane. I wonder if there is a petition supporting her.

    • It appears that some non-military people are seeing some sense. She may get off. I think I read somewhere that she had quit the military as a reservist as a consequence of this experience.
