She's evil.

Recently near me, 3 teenagers stamped a new-born deer to death: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/dorset/8096176.stm.

For some people there's just no hope.

I don't know why it is...cruelty to animals really affects me in ways cruelty to humans doesn't...mostly. I don't know why that is.

Obviously, reading about a drug dealer gunned down, or something like that - well, that falls under the whole "karma" umbrella, I guess. And, I suppose when I read that an animal had to be put down because it was violent or attacking -- that doesn't affect me as much.

But, in general, when I read about cruelty to an innocent human, it rarely, rarely affects me as much as cruelty to an animal.

Here's another gem from humanity, today:

Same here, and I'd guess with a lot of other people too.

Maybe because with human cruelty, the victim has more chance than an animal to do something about it, be that avoiding it in the first place, defending themselves, reporting it afterwards and so on.

An animal really does not have any chance against cruelty, be it active (deliberately hurting an animal) or passive (not caring for pets adequately).
