Really?

With all of the budget cuts in so many cities and this is how we use our resources?

I'm against animal abuse as much as the next person but I maintain this is a waste of tax dollars.

Settle down.

My point was merely I found it to be a bit much for the deputies to "transport" the freaking cats.

Man you people have some weird cat fetish thing going on.



No... some of us just care about animals, as kittens are defenseless to many forms of abuse that can be brought against them. They deserve care just as we as humans do. Abusing the weak and indefensible is disgusting in any form; the aid these kittens were given was well needed.

Like helpless animals.....or those who would champion their cause


Well said
Its what define us as persons
heck, its what define us as the human race

Kids that never learn to treat animals with respect and love end up by being a psycho that only cares for himself/herself if not a miracle should happen
Take a look at the background stories of serial killers and molesters, mostly, they have killed animals for fun as kids or tortured animals

Right I agree, the help was directly needed. And whats done is done. Atleast they where able to save 3 out of the 4 kittens.
They are helpless little creatures, and the "cute" factor is what helps them get through this time in their life when it comes to things bigger than them.
They where able to save the kittens due to the kind nature of the police officers. Sure it might not be their job to transport animals, but it goes to show than compassion and heart can trump the status quo.
Thanks for your thoughts Rubicant


I just do not understand why some people would want to complain about saving kittens. Makes no sense, when thinking of the world we live in. It does not compute. You do the right thing, and people still complain, bitch and moan. Its frustrating. Its what we call a catch 22.

This is very true. And its why that "cute" factor does not work on these types of people. There is something missing, and their brains are not working on the level of the rest of us people who feel empathy.

When people start to lose empathy, its leads them down a very dark path in life. They are in essence shut off from the rest of the world, and not able to feel others pain.
And yes, we are connected to the animals as well. We are all part of the same system here on Earth. Every living thing is connected.
And when I hear or see something like this, I can not help but feel the empathic energy.
I think most of us would agree with what you say.
Thanks for your thoughts.

Hmmm....why oh why do I feel that statement was directed at me?

I have said that I'm glad the kittens are okay. I've also said it was a waste of taxpayer dollars. I stand firm on both statements.

I found out some gruesome practices of breeding animals. Putting the ones that aren't "top quality" in the freezer to die is common. They also break their necks


I work at a grooming shop and my co worker has told me some of the horrible things they do. Even our owners who use to breed poodles did some of these things. If the weren't considered top quality they were put to death. It's so sad and all for people to have a pet! It really turns my stomach. I don't care how much that animal wasn't top quality to them it would have been top quality to someone but breeders only care about their reputation and well they can't have the "bad" ones getting out.

SOOOO SAD!

That is so sad!


Seems like rather than kill those animals that are not "top quality" they could give them away, sans papers.
There is no good reason for killing baby animals. Breeder's reputation- phooey!

Deputies transported the kittens to the Emergency Care Center At Tampa Bay Veterinary Specialist in Largo for further care. The SPCA responded to the scene and the kittens are currently in their custody.


Are my taxes paying for this baloney?

I don't want to see animals abused but every time I read one of these stories that's the first thing I wonder.


Saying they transported the kittens means they DROVE them to the vet in their car. The only cost to the public was the cost of gas.


Also, the kittens are now in the care of the SPCA, a PRIVATELY FUNDED charitable organization.


Who We Are

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) was the first humane society to be established in North America and is, today, one of the largest in the world. Our organization was founded by Henry Bergh in 1866 on the belief that animals are entitled to kind and respectful treatment at the hands of humans, and must be protected under the law. Headquartered in New York City, the ASPCA maintains a strong local presence, and with programs that extend our anti-cruelty mission across the country, we are recognized as a national animal welfare organization. We are a privately funded 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, and proud to boast more than 1 million supporters across the country.

ASPCA

The cost to the public was minimal. The police would have needed to go to these places to follow up on the case anyway.

If you think that is bad, you should see how they treat your steaks and chicken before it reaches your dinner table.

There are machines specifically made to kill these critters. Also check out how they live till they die. death is actually the most humane thing they do for them.

Just to add some perspective to this thread, kittens get eaten by other animals in the wild. If you think freezing to death is bad, wait until you encounter some predatory animal kills. I used to raise sheep. Of course, we had coyote problems, and at one time we lost almost half a dozen animals in one night. Not that the coyotes actually needed all of them--they just wanted to eat the good bits.

I think that senselessly killing and torturing kittens out of sheer cruelty is just that--senseless cruelty. But in perspective, it's not a big deal. I'm far more concerned with humans senselessly killing and torturing humans.

well it wasn't such a waste as calling the cops and complaining about loud neighbors.
which there was nothing much they could do.
at least the cop saved the kittens and a sicko is in jail here.

Really?? You read this story and the first thing that bunches your panties, is the thought of wasted tax dollars??
Where do you even get this? The cops arresting the obviously disturbed individual?
Animal shelters don't use your tax money, so I really don't understand what else you see is being a waste of anything...??

lol... some people I tell ya..

As your post is seething with sarcasm, do you feel that these cruel acts should go unpunished? I am sure If those that rescued these poor kittens were pestered enough, they would take the 4 bucks they spent in gas they may have billed the state for the rescue. Quite a small bill in comparison to many things our government wastes money on.
