The difference being, is that the predators are doing what nature designed them to do, be predators. As oppossed to a human killing wastefully and maliciously, for no good reason.

And cats aren't wild animals. A mountain lion kitten, lynx, or tiger, is, but not a house cat.


Oh, sorry...I thought I'd made it clear in my post that wild animals kill wastefully. Because they do. It's in their nature. And I'm curious as to why you don't think it is part of human nature to kill things wastefully and maliciously--because humans, all throughout history, excel at this.

As far as cat not being wild animals...that doesn't (IMHO) make them more susceptible to pain, or of greater worth on a cosmic level (sure, they're of greater worth to their owner--nothing wrong with that.)

Good post. I'm an avid (if unlucky) hunter who's spent some time butchering chickens and turkeys-it's a pretty interesting summer job.
I also occasionally take time to rescue some unfortunate eight-legged critter who's gotten himself stuck indoors. I don't think there's anything wrong with being annoyed about the senseless waste of animal life, but how many spiders have we stepped on today?

Feeling a bit sorry for calvalryscout now haha. Lots of flame headed your way!

I guess the police thought since it was part of a cruelty case, it was their duty to transfer the animals into safe custody. Sometimes animal rescue services aren't always immediately available, and it would be quicker to just take the cats straight there.
To me, the whole situation is win-win. The kittens got taken care of, and the d-bag is in jail. It was only a few extra minutes of police time that they would otherwise be spending doing something more mundane. Like tazering blind people, or shooting at unarmed crowds

Thanks but with the 'haha' added I question if you really are feeling sorry for me.

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

I have sympathy to the kittens but they have found out that there is someone out there that loves them and will be kind. As for the man i pity him for the hatred he contains. Hatred, anger and vengefulness are emotions that work to destroy those that entertain them. They are like acid which can destroy the contain that holds it.

Before you comment please copy and paste and see what love can do to a ferocious wild lion, then comment.

Isa 11:6 The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
7 And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy
Gal 5:14 neighbour as thyself.
15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.

Br. Ben

Some people do indeed make me sick as well. Imagine if we actually had punishments here in the U.S. that were more like India... crime would be a lot lower in my opinion. You steal, we cut your hand off. You do something like this, we put you in a freezer so you can see how horrible this is. I think it would be interesting indeed.


I had a friend from Laos. There have laws like that over there. When I asked him about crime, he laughed and said there is no crime! You'd rather starve to death then steal food. Talk about being kept in line...

You can bet that the coward will get what he deserves if he goes to jail (if he does go to jail), and someone in there recognizes him from the photo. Unfortunately there just aren't laws or punishments strong enough to deter these sickos from inflicting on defensless animals whatever cruelties lie within their evil minds! The next victim could easily be a child!

"Mankind's true moral test, its fundamental test (which lies deeply buried from view), consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals." ~Milan Kundera

Do not blame our emergency workers for their action towards saving victims. Blame the troubled man who stuck them in the freezer.

What if this happened…

The officer is transporting the kittens to the animal shelter the kittens are in a box on the back seat of the patrol car. Suddenly over the radio there’s an emergency call that the local bank is being robbed.

The officer decides to do his job and responds to the bank robbery. After he parks his car the kittens escape through the back window which the officer left cracked for fresh air. After the escape one kitten proceeds to climb up the leg of the officer’s pants scratching him in the process. While the officer is distracted by the cute little kitten he is shot and killed by one of the bad guys.

It could have happened.

Then what? As long as the kittens are okay, right?

Why? Why are you so upset about this?

I feel like you're just being argumentative about this, and enjoying yourself greatly while doing so.

We get it. You think its a waste of money. Fine.

Move on.....

I'm curious as to why he specifically told her to get beer that wasn't in the freezer, then after she looked, he had to tell her that there was actually kittens in there. What an odd story.

And, why, if he was going to kill the kittens, didn't he just do it in a quick painless way?

What if after picking up the cats the officer is driving and swerves to avoid a pedestrian that ran out into the middle of the road causing him to crash into a tree. The officer is fine but the car it totaled. Now it just so happens the officer crashed near the bank the robbery was happening. Due to the time he took getting the cats, he was right on time for the robbery and was able to prevent it and potentially save lives.

It could have happened...

Okay, bad joke aside, the guy tortured an animal, and that's morally wrong.

But have you ever killed a snake and then found out it was a harmless species?

Have you ever killed a mouse in one of those glue traps and listened to it screech
while it died?

How about that poor spider you squashed underfoot without a thought?

Oh, I know....those are PESTS aren't they. And isn't it convenient that YOU get to decide
what is a pest and what is not a pest....

Maybe, you could help me out a little bit...a stray cat's litter of kittens have grown into
small cats. They are tearing up my window-screens and keep crawling into my truck at
night and sleeping on my seats causing me allergies.....can I consider them as pests and kill them?

Or is there like a form or something I have to fill out to make sure they are really pests and
not a member of the "cute and cuddly" protected list?

Agreed! I can understand the people in this thread are compassionate towards the kittens, and understandably so. In my opinion it sounds like many of the responses in this thread are from people sheltered to real life.

I'm not going to stand up for what the freezer guy did -- what sounded like bragging about killing the kittens. However, freezing is a pretty good way to die compared to being a street kitten left to fend against the world (I have seen kittens dying in many different ways on the streets on Manila and elsewhere. Police will not come rescue them even if there are any animal shelters to take them to.)

So for anyone who has eaten meat in their life, what is a humane way to kill animals?

Here is something to "chew" on, what happens to male calves born in dairy farms?

Also, people here eat dog. It's part of the culture. How do you think they are slaughtered?

I don't agree. I wouldn't say that for a human so I won't say it for a cat. It's like saying we shouldn't bring babies into the world because the world is cruel and difficult. Death sucks. Dying in a freezer sucks too.

For those that eat meat. Getting your meat from a real farm and not a factory farm is certainly at least more humane. Give them a natural life prior to killing them.

I am a tree hugging vegetarian though so my method is that much more humane.

Glad to know that this is coming from a vegetarian. Do you eat any processed foods or animal products (dairy, dyes, etc.)? Just wondering how deep your conviction runs =D

And while eating free range food is probably more healthy than commercial farm raised food, you still didn't answer the question: what is a humane way to kill animals?
