Tyler, Texas (KETK) — Nothing breaks my heart more than stories like this.
An innocent dog in Gregg County was found with 28 pellet shots.
Many, to its head.
From what I hear at the time I wrote this commentary, it will lose an eye.
Who in the world would do such a thing?
It has been scientifically proven that a lot of humans who hurt and kill other human beings started off being cruel to animals.
I cannot fathom anyone who can look at one of God's creatures, something which is basically helpless, and harm it.
We don't know the entire story here but this looks as if someone just decided to take target practice on a dog.
There is one thing if a dog is mad or is causing problems and has to be put down.
I'm not crazy.
But, our area is filled with people dumping off animals and not taking responsibility.
This has got to stop.
First of all, if this is animal cruelty, and how can it not be, this person or persons who did this need to be prosecuted until it hurts.
Just not a light sentence.
This is not a human being, but it does have feelings.
I read a book in The Bible, which says, “Man has dominion over animals.”
This means we are to watch them and care for them, and yes, as far as I am concerned to some, eat them.
But, not be cruel.
If you know someone who is cruel to animals and sees nothing wrong with it or has no problem with it, I'd leave that person alone, they are ill.
That's my point of view ,what’s yours?
