NEWS/VIEWS – ONTARIO, CALIFORNIA: The video is interesting and not hard to watch. I don’t want to dwell on the ins and outs of this story too much as it is too sad. I dislike seeing cats in this situation. But I’ll cover some basic points.
The cats were left inside the car without water and food and the car become very hot. Twenty-four cats inside a car is a hell of a lot of cats. The cats I saw in the video didn’t look too distressed and they were all recovered. They must have been distressed though.
The car was smelling. It was parked outside the Quality Inn Ontario Convention Centre, Ontario, near Los Angeles. The car owner was a guest at the hotel. They were charged with 24 animal welfare crimes. The cats were assessed by a vet. They are okay it seems and will be adopted out from the Inland Valley Humane Society & S.P.C.A.
COMMENT: The big issue is why the person did it. I’d love to question this person. I’d do it politely but we need to get inside the head of these people. What are they thinking when they do something so obviously cruel? Do they know they are being cruel to cats? In other words are they cruel people or blind to their actions and therefore mentally ill?
Should they be punished of treated? Or punished and treated? They should be punished but their psychological state needs to be assessed.
