I am very well aware and educated in this area and I can't even begin to express how angry this makes me feel especially since I have seen video footage of this before on TV so it really hits home for me. I have never heard and seen such barbaric behavior come from any other fellow human beings and I can not grasp an understanding of how these things can continue on without conscientiousness. But I do believe such individuals will pay for their actions in some way.

FINALLY! a discussion about this. I tried once before but no one was interested.

This is supposed to be an above intelligence country techno-wise so what happened to common sense in Asia?

Sars- bird flu now this! it is a crime against nature!! :rant: :rant: :rant:

:( I'm not going to look, I'll assume it's horrible and gruesome and heart rending. I'm going to play with my puppies now.

JM, smart decision....I made the mistake of watching and bawled my eyes out, it was horrifying to actually see something like that. I've read about things like this but wasn't prepared for what I saw.

FWIW, here is a petition you can sign:

Thanks I did sign it- Everyone needs to- And "whoever" you may not want to know the specifics but that is the problem - everyone refusing to get involved- or "I don't want to know"-- at least sign the petition!

Complacency will not help these animals!!

I signed the petition, I hope it helps.

I heard the cry, I woke in tears. Pain in my heart, death and destruction is all around, fear and despair. The loss so great on so many levels. Human and animal alike, I can not stop the tears...

Help the helpless...Please...Help!

Wolfpak, the fact that I CHOOSE not to view a horrid display of cruelty doesn't not mean that I am part of the problem. It simply means that I don't need that visual to move me to action. I don't feel it implies that I am not involved or I don't want to know. How does me not looking at the link evolve into EVERYONE REFUSING TO GET INVOLVED? I am very aware of the suffering of animals world wide. I am concentrating my energy and resources on some blessed little beings closer to home. I am fostering four puppies until I find them safe, loving homes where they will be spayed and neutered and cared for, for the rest of their lives. Me, complacent? I think not. Back off.

I cannot stand to watch footage of animal abuse, either. All of the animal cop shows, stories on the news about torture, physically sicken and haunt me. And I am not a weak stomached person; blood and guts do not bother me. But seeing graphic images of the results of unthinkable torture of any helpless living being does much more than just bring tears to my eyes. Images like these never leave my memory. It's the stuff my nightmares are made of.

So I donate money and time, I try to help educate, I sign and pass along petitions -- I actively help, but please just do not ask me to look at it, or hear the graphic details!
