Recently in my home of Newfoundland, Canada, there has been an epidemic of incidences where people have neglected animals, left them to die, or been otherwise viciously cruel to them. In the most recent incident, someone left two dogs tethered in his kitchen, and along with a cat, abandoned them for weeks. When they were found, one of the dogs and the cat were dead. The area where the dogs were tethered was rancid with urine and feces, and to top it all off, there was a bucket of food left in the bathroom, on the other side of the house, where of course they could not get to it.
My belief, and the belief of many who live in my area, is that the reason that we have these despicable incidents is that the punishments for such crimes amount to a slap on the wrist.
If any of my MTF friends would like to join my group, I would be eternally grateful. Some international members would definitely add clout to our cause. The link to the Facebook group is here: http://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#!/...6013755&ref=nf
