My question has always been ‘how a human being, that was created with a mind and heart, can cause so much harm to a naturally harmful creature, like a dog or a cat’. Are humans so sadistic and evil that they get pleasure from beating a helpless and weaker animal? With great sadness I would say yes. I have witnessed an incident, where a guy was dragging a dog while driving in his truck. They poor thing was almost choked from its leash and its fur was almost excoriated. The saddest part is that after confronting the man, he didn’t seem to be ashamed the least bit and didn’t even care when I told him that I had his plate number and I would call the police.
