    I got Animal Planet with Animal Cops playing in the background, and I still can't believe that people can treat animals so coldly.

    If I was a cop and arrested a teen for torturing a cat, I would take my night-stick and bash his brains in. That's how I feel about the whole ugly matter. What do you think?

    I think its pathetic that such actions are punished with a fine and criminal record rather than a flogging with a barbed leather whip.
    But at the same time I have to accept that the examples on Animal Cops are extreme examples usually caused as a result of society ignoring people of questionable intellect and mentle well being.
    You have to ask, how does a horse get to the stage of starvation within plain site of a neighbours home and residence without someone noticing.

    I thank God every day that thus far, I have not caught anyone in the act
    of abusing an animal.

    I've cried watching Animal Cops a few time. Like this German Shepherd with 125+ ticks on him. Poor baby. He was adopted by the officer who found him, though, so a nice happy ending.

    Even if you are making it up, to go into such disturbing detailed description is sick. Some of us care about animals, those of us that dont find it amusing, what you wrote is disgusting.

    Consider this. Most people couldn't conjure that out of thin air if they tried. Scary, eh?

    I like your shirt.

    By that logic, Edgar Allan Poe and Stephen King are sick too. Which is quite interesting because it's actually pretty simple to depict a mildly twisted scene like that. I could never mimic those two.

    Then again, I could have depicted the time when one of my friends actually put a firecracker on a chicken's butt. Or when his brother put a chicken on a blender. These two stories are real, unlike the fictitious microwave one.

    Still, it's amusing to see such reactions. What's even more amusing is Pit's poetic wording. I, by no means, support animal cruelty, bear that in mind.

    As for Clam, I won't even bother with him anymore. Him calling me king of stupidity really goes to show how high his IQ really is.

    Actually, you just lack imagination.

    I don't see the correlation between fist fights and IQ's.

    They proberly stuck to writing it in their books, not on some thread about animal abuse, maybe post your 'short story' on the creative writing section.

    I've heard it said you can tell how civilized a country is by the way it treats it's animals.
