Good Mourning “Sea Kittens,”
I read an article about a young girl who got world-wide web attention for tossing six newborn puppies in a flood swollen (get back JJ I know how the word affects you) river. This simple act of humanity is now going to draw out the usual suspects; Al Sharpton, Bob Barker, Barbara Streisand, and the rest of Hollywood’s ‘do-gooders’ followed by PETA all expressing their righteous indignation! All this fuss about a brave young 12 year old girl putting puppies out of their misery. We’ve now got Michael Bay (Director of Transformer series) putting up $10,000 reward for her successful prosecution which as everyone knows is a euphemism for one’s head on a platter.
Once again the media seizes on an apparent evil deed without first doing their homework. This usually means asking questions and checking facts to put the story in its proper context. Facebook, Twitter, blogging, chat rooms, and simple web surfing has provided a way for anyone to present anything as fact. In some ways this benefits me, but if the two or three of you reading this foregone conclusion continue to follow this story, what will be revealed is a young girls heart being broken at the loss of her beloved Beagle named “Patches” giving birth to six puppies. This tragic event was out of her hands; there was no way to feed them as milk is still unavailable over there. The little pups were dying.
The pups growing weaker each passing hour, the little girl made what I would call a mature and sensible decision. She decided to mercifully end their suffering and drown them. This act of humanity has been stripped from her, and has twisted the facts turning her into a monster!
For God’s sake it’s not like Michael Vick’s crime where dogs were tortured prior to killing them. Got a slap on the wrist and is again making millions of dollars. Where’s Sharpton? Where’s Hollywood? Where’s Bob Barker? That’s right all of them have nothing to say including PETA! This little girl hasn’t a chance! With no way to defend herself against the lying hordes, she will be at the mercy of assholes with press secretaries!
