After reading the thread it seems I have something to say about nearly every reply...
First, killing to eat or control varmints is one thing......this was premeditated torture
Second, if humans have souls, so do animals, and insects, and plants...just put the damned
1000 year old books down and back away...life either has an unknown pervasive force behind
it with all life included (which I believe) or it doesn't....it's just too damned egocentric to think that
humans are that damn *special*
Third, to the poster who said the entire scene seemed fishy...You're damn right it's fishy.
The perp who did this would have needed to capture a cat, wait for the right window of opportunity-
somewhere between when the owner's construction was halted and the concrete inside
the pole was still soft enough to allow the cat to sink (and having been a concrete man
for many years, I can tell you that the viscosity or surface tension of the concrete inside that
pole would have been higher that normal, and even in normal circumstances with a flat pad
of very wet concrete it would be difficult to impossible to sink a lightweight kitten without forcing
it down....requiring even MORE TOOLS and preparation) This stinks like a BS and anchovy pizza
with extra BS.
Fourth...I find it strange, how with everything going on around us to create threads about and comment
on, I have such a boiling anger about something as simple and probably inconsequential as this,
as to type this many words about it....it kinda reminds me of something the guy who flew his plane into
the IRS building said, "...nothing in this country ever gets done without a body count."
