How can they even contemplate such cruelty, and sleep at night, I wish I had a shot gun, no that's too good for them, drag them behind a car over the roughest ground to be found. Heartbreaking.

There's tougher sentences for those who attack police animals surely this should go for all animals! Someone who is capable of this is capable of anything!
