Animal abuse

With so many animal lovers on DC (myself being one as many of you well know) this story broke in our local (Omaha) paper today

Man Beats Dog To Death With Golf Club - Omaha News Story - KETV Omaha

I know I promised to keep my threads light for awhile, but this one makes my blood boil!! We accept pets into our lives, like our spouses and SO's for better or worse.

Personally, I would like to beat this with a golf club. You know, I would have, as I know many of you would, taken this little pup into my home in a second!!

What the is wrong with people. I hope he feels like a "big man" now. I also hope theres a special place in for people like him.

Admins-If this is too strong, feel free to remove it and I sincerely apologize. Needlessly hurting a defensless animal that doesn't know any better is a hot button issue with me!!!!

I feel for you smoke and side with you, but won't click on that link.
There's far too much abuse going on everywhere with anything to read about every case. Too depressing to know the details....

Pacanis, I completely understand. If I hadn't already heard the story on the evening news, I wouldn't click on it either.

Not to sound "weak" or "soft", but this stuff absolutely breaks my heart.

I too am one who can't always handle all the horrifying details. Especailly when it comes to animals and children. My one cat was abused and she has the scars to show for it. She has trust issues and I'm the third and final person to adopt her. I must be doing something right because her and I are inseparable. She follows me from one end of the house to the other. Whenever I sit down she won't climb up on my lap or let me hold her, but she lays right up against me. She has to be touching me whenever possible.

That's horrible. Just because it was barking too, wow. If someone doesn't like barking, they shouldn't get a dog, especially a small yappy one. It says he only hit it once and that it wasn't awake after that, so I'd like to think it didn't suffer.

I won't click on the link. It upsets me too much to even think of rotten people who hurt animals.
