  1. How dare someone torture a living being. What kind of monsters are being raised in my neighborhood? I am so tired of nasty teenagers that think they can do what ever they like. Leave the defenseless animals alone! To the Parents of these teenagers – Teach your children RESPECT! RESPECT for ALL THINGS, living or not! I cringe at the thought of what they may do next.
