The Inhumanity of Our Society

Many people who know me, know that I am an avid dog lover. I have 2 labs who are like my kids. One of my labs is 10, I’ve had him since he was just a few months old, he’s been with me through many, many changes in my life and I don’t know what I am going to do when he moves on. Just the thought of him not being here brings tears to my eyes. My other lab is a little over 2 years old.  I had forgotten  how crazy lab puppies were and he definitely fits the name we gave him, Cracker.  Labs don’t realize they are no longer puppies until they are about … ummmm … 10?

Picture from the Northeast Times, JENNY SWIGODA / TIMES STAFF PHOTOGRAPHER Gabriella and Moshe Ovadia hold a photo of their beloved Chico, a 3-year-old Siberian Husky who's remains were found in Somerton.

This is a completely non-real estate related blog post. I picked up my local newspaper this morning, The Northeast Times (read the article) and there on the first page was an article about a dog that was brutally murdered in my neighborhood not too long ago. When this story first broke, I, along with the entire Northeast community and quite possibly all of Philadelphia, found it to be extremely disturbing. As new details of the gruesome nature of this dog’s death come out, it’s even more disturbing. I found myself in tears this morning once again over this animal that I’ve never met.  Not just a few tears, I was sobbing.

The thought that someone, who I won’t dare call a human being, actually found it amusing to take a 3 year old defenseless animal, tie it to train tracks and find sport in watching this animal squirm to release itself, only to end up being cut in half by a train, all at the hands of a warped mind with no soul.

The animal’s remains were then removed from the railroad tracks and dumped on someone’s back patio deck where they were found by the homeowner the next morning.

I am sick to my stomach at the thought of the world in which my child is growing up in, what is wrong with people today, can anyone answer that? I know the economy sucks, but that’s no excuse for such brutality, only a very sick, demented inhuman would do such a thing.

Our laws are lenient when it comes to animal abusers, I would think because our jails are already so filled with inhumans who abuse and/or murder defenseless humans. Our penalties need to be stiffer for the criminals that harm other humans as well as defenseless animals, maybe then such brutality will end.
