      What a barbaric, horribly painful way to solve a problem. Just this
      morning I saw a news video of local firemen actually giving mouth to
      mouth to some pets that were in a house fire and wouldn't respond with
      an oxygen mask (the pets are now fine). What a great group of human
      beings and what a difference in humanity. I only wish I could be a "fly
      on the wall" at the Pearly Gates when they try to come up with an excuse
      for their decision ("as you do unto the least of these, so you do unto
      me"--Jesus."). May they rot in hell.

      I couldn t help but cry when I read this story. It appalls me too, and I cannot believe that this kind of thing goes on anywhere in the world in 2011.

        I read the article at the link you sent, but couldn't find a link that leads
        to the site where you can sign the petition. If I perhaps overlooked it,
        could you please send it, as I'm sure I'm not the only one who would like to
        sign and share it with others.

        Thank you,
