I saw this on a forum I belong to
http://www.iheartpaws.com//forums/showthread.php?t=963

As you can see one of the members said it could be fake.

Does anyone know the truth?

While I can't testify as to the veracity of the article, I can say that such cruelty does happen. A couple of years ago in the Denver area a young man stole puppies from a shelter, taped them up, put them in carriers, and set them on fire. Apparently he liked the sound of their screams. [Mad]

Here is more info on that story.

Sad but true. I work for the VA Dept of Agriculture and I see the cruelty cases brought in by animal control officers for necropsy (same as autopsy.) It's horrific what some people will do.

Oh I know people are disgusting... I read plenty of animal abuse website so I can sign petitions to put these sickos away.

I just wanted to know what the deal with that one story was... it happened in Canada apparently. It's hard to get information unless it's via the internet from over here!!!

You might want to try getting active in your community instead since petitions pretty much do a whole lot of nothing.

I work for several rescues- so trust me, I am active in my community! Do you do rescue work? Or should I assume you don't do anything as well?

PetLover, I don't believe Thrillho was trying to be snarky; instead, I think she was referring to the ineffectiveness of online petitions as a means of bringing about change.

See here for more info.

I hope so but for someone who DOES a lot of work in their community that wasn't an easy read. I apologize if I jumped the gun thinking Thrillho was being snarky.

I read your link- I will have to share that! Thank you!

I've seen that artical somewhere else, so I would think that is is correct. And sadly, I've seen the real thing to. Sick people.

If Animal Planet's police shows are any indication, there are plenty of sick people out there.

I wondered why the Frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.
What does "Bookachow", "YOMANK!" and other lingo mean?

Ariadne- what about petitions from HSUS and other large organizations that are "signed" online. Are these uneffective as well? Because I always get emails saying "You've made a difference! We won for animals!". So I'm confused.
