    Re: 18-year old charged in Florida cat mutilations

    Yeah this is a highly disturbing story... if someone did something like this to my cat or dog.. man.. I don't know what I would do but it wouldn't be good for that person.

    But I have to say, as a child I did used to pour salt on snails. My Dad told me the snails were bad cause they ate his plants, so i used to go around pouring salt on them, or sometimes i would take apart their shells that they were in and like squish them. I guess that's not different than a kid with a magnifying glass on an ant hill. Do you think that kids who use magnifying glasses or salt on snails have something wrong? I mean i'm perfectly normal college student party party chicks etc, so I know i'm not a serial but u know kids do that stuff ?

    I don't think there is a correlation between cats and snails tho... I love my cat

    What you did is not nice but completely different. It is a gruesome game to pour salt on snails, but they do not react like vertebrates, it is not that kind of sadistic behaviour. It is a childish kind of curiosity, you do not enjoy to experience the pain you induce, you do not enjoy the blood and you do not automatically lack the normal kind of empathy we have with creatures that cry, suffer or die.

    I do not say that it is normal to torture insects but it is a huge gap between that and ripping vertebrates in the degree of degeneration. It has a reason that there are laws that protect animals that oftentimes protects vertebrates and endotherms only and leave out insects.

    Killing tasty animals = good

    Killing non-tasty animals = not good

    There are ways to make many animals taste good.

    But does this mean I shouldn't be killing insects? Cause...**** mosquitoes.

    Good point. Let me alter my statement:

    Killing naturally tasty animals = good

    Killing vermin = good

    Killing non-naturally tasty and non-vermin animals = not good.

    That better?

    Are you qualifying non-naturally tasty animals as cats and dogs? Some cultures eat them the same as we eat beef and chicken.

    No. Just personal preference of tasty vs. non tasty. If a dude killed a cat and then ate it, he could say on the witness stand "It was soooooo tasty!" and I'd vote to acquit him of any charges if I were on the jury.

    Even if the cat belonged to someone else?

    I should say that I would acquit him of any animal cruelty charges that would go along with it. Property damage is another thing entirely.

    If it was his cat that he ate, I'd acquit. If he didn't eat it, I wouldn't.

    Would you acquit if he tortured the animal (his cat) for days before killing it?
