I try to stay in touch with every dog related trend, both good and bad. One of the bad trends I’ve been seeing lately is someone throwing a dog in the garbage to die.
You have to wonder at what kind of a depraved mindset someone must have if they are throwing a dog in the garbage. In some cases, these people are pure evil. In others, the people are mentally deranged and need professional help in a medical facility.
I saw a news video today of 3 young men throwing a dog in the garbage. Three older teen punks. One running ahead to the dumpster, the other acting as the lookout, and the third carrying the mixed bred pit bull and then tossing it in. Fortunately, the dog was rescued and apparently the dog is a sweetie pie. These punks deserve about 10 years in prison. They knew what they were doing was wrong, and they did it anyways. No excuses. This kind of rot needs to be put away so they don’t breed more rot. A lost generation of young men.
Then there was the woman who, throwing a dog in the garbage chute a year or so ago, was caught and prosecuted. But, my hunch, reading between the lines, was that she was mentally unstable. Even so, no excuse. The law needs to become involved, and the person either put away and treated, or locked up so they don’t do more harm.
Too often, animal abusers are let off the hook. You see this too often in the British newspapers. There, you can do some pretty horrible things and get off with a warning. That’s not justice, and that isn’t going to stop these types of crimes.
Throwing a dog in the garbage is cruel, and it is criminal. And it should be treated as such by the law.
