    The people (or preosn) who did this should face a very harsh punishment! I'm in favor of sending people who abuse animals to prison for long stints and making them PAY for their crimes against animals. How about the same torture inflicted on them that they inflicted on the innocent animal? One of the Muslim countries in getting ready to cane a mother of two for drinking a beer how about we do something like that to animal abusers and then lock them up without medical care, food, or nice living conditions!
