    Default Man shoots horse with crossbow then films it dying

    A man in Australia has shot a horse with a crossbow, then filmed it dying. He was reported by someone who viewed the video on the man's cellphone.

    I have attached the article. It's painful to read. Man Shoots Horse

    The man is appearing in court on Oct 21 The penalty for animal cruelty ranges from a minimum fine of $2000 and a maximum of $50,000 and five years imprisonment.

    RSPCA spokesman Richard Barry said details of the case would "shock the whole of Australia".

    Equestrians shoot idiot with his own bow.
    First in each knee, then in "privates", then in throat. Tie him out in desert. Too classy to film him dying.
    Sorry, I have no patience for that kind of subhuman behavior.

    WTF?!!!

    And this time I do not mean 'Where's the fruitbat?'

    I'm not a violent person, but by God, this monster needs a little of the Old Testament 'an eye for an eye' doctrine!

    I stand by my original viewpoint: any organs that can be donated should be, the rest used for biomedical research. Small restitution, but something is better than nothing.

    I won't even touch the link because I could not watch, and I don't think anything they ever do to him will be close to what he deserves to get

    Personally, I think you are being way too kind here!

    I didn't used to have violent tendencies or thoughts but when I read about animal abuse and some of the things that humans do to undeserving creatures, I really do have the urge to maim and kill.

    What a friggin' psychopath. I can't get in the link to read the article. Guess that's a good thing.

    No, I don't want death for this person--I want him to live a long and miserable life. Preferably maimed in some way.

    We have got to stop calling people "animal abusers" They are psychopaths. Wonder how we got away from using this word. That's what people who do these things are. Abnormal and defective in EVERY way.

    Political Correctness gave us new terminology for all sorts of conditions and diseases. Thankfully that attitude is dying and we will return to calling someone who mains or kills humans or animals without remorse a psychopath!

    But his filming the death will make the prosecution easier. So much cruelty goes undetected. This video will help show that he meant to kill, that he enjoyed watching the horse die, and that he needs to have his ass put in jail and hopefully some big friendly guy will make him his bride.

    I hope so. People like that don't deserve to be called polite names.

    I like the organ donation idea. As long as the first few incisions are made without anesthesia.....

    What about the horse's owner? Did they walk out to the field and find it dead? Sick, sick. I like the idea of organ donation, it's a win-win situation. The psycho is dead and many people live on due his donation.

    Default Only if the harvesting is done while he is concious

    The organ donating thing only works for me if the guy is alive and concious during the harvesting process.
