This type of senseless cruelty does not surprise me. You live what you learn and many people have lived a life of cruelty so they take their frustrations out on a helpless animal.
I love my pet as do many people in this community, but there is an underlying anger here that needs to be addressed and until the causes of that anger are addressed, and ways to deal with it, then these types of violent acts against animals and children will only get worse. Instead of merely quoting the Bible people need to take a strong look at themselves to see if they are merely saying something and doing something entirely different.
