Hurting an animal is one of the most disgusting things a human being can possibly do... I just can't fathom how someone can hurt a powerless creature for WHATEVER reason. I don't think animal abusers are punished harsh enough, people that don't give a sh*t about taking care of their pets and let them starve or get sick are awful and should rot in jail... but sickos that torture and mutilate animals should be tortured and killed. There is absolutely no point in sadistic f*cks walking around making the world an even sicker place then it is. And people that say "Oh, it's just an animal" or "It's not that big of a deal", go **** yourselves. It's a life, animals can feel just as much pain a human can.
