    They should be tried and given a suspended sentence, suspended until the next hurricane when the fuckers would be chained to a tree and left on the beach.

    I don't understand how someone could leave their dog tied up to face certain death like that.
    Here's a story about a dumbass who shot a cat thru the head, and posted it on social media, only problem is she claims the cat was feral; well it wasn't.

    She's a vet, doesn't it take eight years to get your license? how stupid and how insensitive can you be?

    And her lawyer? she would have been "okay" if she hadn't posted it, so she's like the thief that isn't sorry she stole, but VERY SORRY she's going to jail.

    I swear, there's no class, nor humanity with some people.

    I could not imagine doing this to my babies. Our pets depend on us and we are their entire world. These people should be charged to the full extent.

    No, silly. The pets were abandoned.



    I suppose the prepositional phrase could also be seen as a modifier of "charges" but the diagram looked better this way.

    I always hated diagramming sentences. Learning that taught me nothing but how to diagram sentences.

Serial killers start with animals.
    Should horse owners be prosecuted by not evacuating their horse?

    If it's going to be a felony to abandon an animal during a natural disaster, looters should be lawfully shot on sight.

    I am surprised the looters were not shot...Florida has Stand Your Ground. I think stealing is already a felony.
