While I agree with what you are saying, as I strongly oppose the violence we are seeing here as well, I do disagree that a dogs life has little worth.
I'm more of a cat person myself, but regardless of what the animal is, it is a life. I love my pets like children, and I baby them as such. If
someone were to decapatate my pet, I would hold a strong hatred for them. I would not condone their death, but I do believe it should come with a
hefty prison sentence. If it is not appropriate to treat fellow humans like that, it should not be appropriate to treat animals like that. I take
animal cruelty very serious.
If it came down to saving the life of a domesticated pet or a human life, I would always save the human life. But the life of a pet has plenty of
worth, in my opinion.
Stinky, smelly, dirty, etc., yeah they are. But they also provide the most selfless friendship a man can ask for. They trust us to do them no harm.
When that trust is broken, it can be fairly upsetting for both of us.
So, I disagree with the "just a dog" statement.
