In the Cat-Skinning case.

One of them got 10 months time served, and is free.
The other got 90 days, to be served on weekends.

WTF is up with that?

Fucking slap on the wrist.

Cats just don't get respect in the world. Most animals don't. It's probably because they're not cognitive enough to write tests.

I'm not cognitive enough to write posts.

however that logic is a bit like killing someone to protest the death penalty.....still....pigs are smarter than cats....

you're all forgetting that we live in a country where you get a longer sentence for tax evasion than man slaughter

besides......in some countries people eat cats :p

I once knew a girl who lived in Manitoba that said she de-feathered and gutted her own chickens so that her family could eat them for dinner.

I don't really see a strict dichotomy between the two......

^^^ on that note I would also like to add that I think the killing of animals is very wrong

Unless its commercialised killing that results in me having chicken wings for dinner.

I think killing animals for consumption is alright, but animal cruelty is different. Skining a cat live if the most horrible thing to do. I agree that they should be punished, but 10 months in jail? That's a little too much I think. It's only a cat.

I agree that animals should have rights, but where do we draw distinctions. When I was younger I used to break off the wings of flies and put them on a hot stove. Is that animal cruelty then? Should I be put into a jail cell for that? Or do we place sentences according to the cognitive abilities of the animals? Higher cognition = more jail time? If we do serve sentences for animal cruelty I think it should all be the same. We're all animals, and a cat is just as an animal as a human being is, therefore one should get the same sentence for cat cruelty as if it was a person.

we used to raise and slaughter our own chickens. thats different though. we raised them and killed them (HUMANELY) to eat them. not for shock value. and there was absolutley no torture involved whatsoever.

Do a search and find a story that describes what they did. . . it was horrible. The intent was not to kill, it was to slowly torture in the most brutal method possible. Their object was not the cat's death per se but to cause it as much pain as possible while killing it.

There's a huge difference.

I would post the details myself, but I can't even think about it without getting really angry and I just don't feel like going there right now.

Edited because I can't seem to write in complete sentences.

I find it absolutely disgusting what those guys did.
Horrible all around.

But.. it's just a cat still.

And as much as my response of emotional disgust is compelling,
"my" morals are not enough to put someone behind bars when his actions caused no harm to another human.

so...

Just a cat - that's fucked of you to say that!! For someone to do that you have to have a lot of evil motives inside you, no morals and no respect for living creatures. I don't want anyone like that walking free. Do you not know that there is a link between people who kill and torcher animals and then later become murderers.:(
