Unknown person kills cats by targeting them with a water pistol loaded with antifreeze — 8 Comments

  1. its sad. people do this like THIS cuz they are able to get away with it. if there were laws about THIS sort of behavior it would, at the very least, diminish. its funny, in a not-so-funny way though, cuz there are clear indicators that THIS behavior is common among juvenile offenders as well as those that have more serious behavioral issues(violence, etc). if people appoached their gov’ts about it from THAT angle i THINK it would be easier for them to write/re-write laws to protect pets, etc as it would, in the long run, protect US as well. cuz, lets be honest, its not THAT far of a leap for some people to go from poisoning pets to poisoning people. there are some sick f@#$’s out there.

    • I think you are right, Ed, that this sort of behaviour is more common among juvenile offenders. What you’re saying is that we should target this section of society and I agree with you there. There are laws, as you know, which protect animals both in the USA and the UK and in many other countries. The problem, by and large, is that law enforcement does not treat animal abuse seriously enough and does not put enough resources into tackling animal cruelty and abuse.

  2. I see a lot of cat cruelty stories coming from the UK. If that country cannot get its people in line, I will never visit it again, nor will I buy products from there.

    This is probably the work of someone who hates cats in general, is a bird watcher, or is a bored child. Pathetic is what it is regardless. I’d wish the same fate on them, but I doubt this person will be caught. Whatever happens, this person will have to face what they’ve done after they die. This is some very bad karma on their part.

    • Yes, Jennifer. I agree that there is too much cat cruelty in the UK. One reason is that Brits almost always let their cats roam outside so they are very vulnerable. And there are more nasty people in the UK these days.

    • To have read so many accounts lately of abuse in the UK is shocking and saddens me. Is it our fault that our next generation (US included) have no respect for life? I can’t get a grip on who to blame, ie. parents, schools, government?
      I know that, as a youngster, I would have never dared to harm any animal. My parent’s punishment would have been corporal indeed. Beatings weren’t called abuse then.
      Perhaps, lawmakers should keep their noses out of parenting and redefine what may constitute real child abuse.

    • Me too. If I could get away with it I’d turn the water pistol on his open mouth and squeeze for a very long time.
