It's been days now. Days of heartbreak for animal lovers everywhere. Days of anguish and disbelief.
Yes, I, too, find it hard to understand how anyone, any caring, loving person (the dentist is pictured with his family several times, in reports I've read) can openly, without thought of the pain and terror he is causing... kill a regal animal like Cecil.
The dentist is paying for this with the outrage of thousands. While I fully support the outrage, the calling him out in social media, the desire to see him prosecuted, I draw the line at some of the hateful name calling and other non-useful reactions. I do not wish him to... die the same death Cecil did. I do wish him to be legally tried and prosecuted.
Is this the straw that finally breaks the camel's back? Are we, as a society, here in the U.S., going to stand up and demand justice for animals everywhere? I would like to see this same outrage held against men and women who run dog fighting rings. I don't think any human who is responsible for dogs in a dog fighting ring should ever...ever...ever see freedom. They should be incarcerated for life. And, not get out to play football...you know who I mean.
