A bunch of animal stories in the news this week…
Man pleads guilty in deer’s death… In Asheville, NC, a man admitted to killing a deer that had been “adopted” by a herd of cattle. An officer wrote in a report of the incident: “Two men went into the cows and picked up a deer that was lying in the middle of the cows and were carrying it to the bank where we were standing… During which, all the cows followed the two men carrying the deer.”
Man should get maximum for torturing, killing cat on videotape… “During his trial, Power’s lawyer told court the art student and one-time vegetarian intended the video [of the torturing and killing of a cat] to be an art project showing that it was hypocritical for society to allow the killing of some animals for their meat but not others.”
And, finally, one with a happy ending: Curiosity saved the cat, a 13-year-old saved a cat being tortured by other teenagers and resucitated it with mouth-to-mouth.
