飼い主の責任
2012-09-11 09:49

My eyes are red and swollen from crying, as I am overwhelmed with sadness and resentfulness after I watched camera footage, which was videotaped in an animal shelter.
One of the last moments was especially disturbing as a Husky dog was being taken away to be euthanized. He looked very frail and sick, but he struggled to escape from the arms of the staff, as if he sensed that his life was in danger.
I heard that one of those people whose job it is to put the animals down, tweeted that he doesn't like his job, and he hates the owners who abandoned their pets.
I wonder why they can be so unfeeling? How can they be so cool?
Some people don't feel bad about letting their pets go hungry, and abuse them, or discard them. The remark I hate most was they took their pets to the pound just because they wanted to travel abroad with their children.
They said that they had asked their children which they preferred, to go on a one week trip or keep their pets. When their children answered that they wanted to go to a beach overseas, they decided to put them down.
However, one woman continued her interview by saying their children had learned a lot thanks to the pets, they became thoughtful to animals, and learned how to take care of them. That repulsed me.
I won't be able to forget the wistful expression on the dog`s face.
