This statement from the article makes me hope she is relocated and adopted out elsewhere.

The dynamics of taking a creature that trusts you, somehow immobilize them, and then shoot them and then leave them to suffer and probably die is highly disturbing.

Is it having total control or power over something? Is it injuring or killing something that trusts? Is it being fixated by watching something struggle or suffer?

We would be better off without such creatures -- the animals that commit these atrocities.

This is so sad...seems to be an epidemic of stupid going around.

I had started a thread of an animal abuser sent through facebook in chile. Instead of the thread being about the actions of the abuser, it turned to opinions that the reactions of people who took offence to the abusers were the ones who were a problem.

Interesting to see where your thread goes

I noticed that, and I really don't care. There is nothing wrong with people being angry and wanting justice when something that requires our attention, care, protection is heinously violated. It does not make us murders or freaks or crazies to want them to suffer pain or to be killed in order that they cannot do the same to others.

Generally I would not want a human being to be killed for killing a canine or other animal. But killing is one thing, even if they do it while committing a crime like selling drugs, or even deliberately to get rid of a drug dog. I know that is awful. I think those people should go to prison for a good long time, but I just don't see it as the same as people who will torture to death a live thing to watch it suffer. Those people are just getting started, and I have no problem with the idea of snuffing such a one out before the graduate to human being, babies or children or women. It will never happen of course, but I just don't see any place for such evil ones. And yes evil is a strong word.

I'm sure this will not be a popular comment, but I think that anyone who is capable of doing something like this to any other living creature, should have their life taken from them. They will never be anything more than a burden and a danger to society. Cruelty of this caliber makes it clear that this was not this persons first time doing something cruel and its highly unlikely it will be their last.

Its a miracle this dog survived, I hope she finds her forever home, bless her heart.

I agree with this. They say serial killers start this way. I say just find them, get rid of them before the next victim is a child or person. At the very least do the same thing to them as they did to this poor dog, maybe they will survive the shot to the head and maybe they won't.

If you have a mad dog, you shoot it to put it out of its pain, and protect society.

Can't see why you wouldn't do the same for a person that is clearly a danger to society. I wouldn't torture the person, just put him down.

I do not think everyone who is disturbed, mentally not right, should be dealt with like this, but if their mental instability includes torturing and cruelty, then I just don't see the point of keeping them around to injure or kill more.

So sad, that poor dog. I just don't understand how people can do this to animals let alone eachother...just punishment for the person who did this to the dog is deserved.

Didn't Jeffrey Dahmer start by doing awful things to animals?
