it really breaks my heart to hear stories about people abusing animals. i cant watch those sad commercials about saving animals because it makes me cry. i dont understand how a person can look at a cat or a dog or a horse and have a small enough heart to do something to harm them. god put pets on this earth to bring us joy and company. i think that the evil people who harm animals in any way shouldnt just get a fine, but they should have to endure the torture they put the animals through. they should have to go days with out food, or left outside in all the nasty weather with no protection, and beat up by someone much bigger and stronger than them. maybe then they would actually feel sorry for their horrible actions.
