Anyone capable of this kind of cruelty poses a serious risk, not just to animals, but to fellow human beings as well. Communities should be concerned when animal abusers are found in their midst. Research in psychology and criminology reveals a consistent pattern of cruelty to animals among perpetrators of violence toward humans.
The first duty of life is to be as artificial as possible. What the second duty is no one as yet discovered.
~ Oscar Wilde (October 16, 1854 - November 30, 1900)
