I have never been able to explain it... But I feel the exact same way. I can't pin point exactly why.. But it grabs my heart and bothers me to the
core. I am a serious animal lover.. I think I might look at them as helpless.. Kind of like a child.. They have to rely on humans for protection.
I was 18 years old ... I was a passenger in my buddies truck. We were going fishing on a stream in Clarkston Michigan... We were going down this dirt
road, and had just come over a hill .. there was a vehicle in front of us with its brake lights lit up.. he tossed a black garbage bag out the window,
then sped off!.. We were like 200 yards behind him.. by the time we got to the bag ...a severely injured puppy had crawled out of the bag....
Instead of stopping we were determined we were going to catch this guy and make him stop until the cops showed up... We chased him for roughly 10
miles down back roads..reaching 90+ mph... Finally he trapped himself on a dead end.. So he did exactly the opposite of what we expected.. He jumped
out, ran to his trunk and grabbed a ball bat...and started taunting us.. Well in the back of the truck we still had our golf clubs from the day
Needless to say this was my first "run in" with the law... $5k later and 5 years probation and a felony charge of Aggravated assault.... .We thought
we would be able to claim self defense, because he pulled out the bat first. So we called the cops after beating him within an inch of his life..
Because we chased him, he was able to claim self defense. He already had a long wrap sheet at 35yrs old... Since 4 puppies died he ended up getting
nearly 10 years in jail and his 3rd DUI !
I would do the same thing over again... Except for calling the cops.. We should have left him to die!
I have a another story similar to this from my Junior year Prom, if anyone is interested.
