Animal cruelty

A horribly burned and disfigured young dog, Mambo, will have a rare opportunity to face his alleged tormentors in open court in December. Set on fire and left for dead on August 10 in a small French Pyrenees village, the dog suffered third-degree burns to 50 percent of his body.
A local police spokesman said: “Mambo was clearly looking for help when he went missing. He approached the pair because he is extremely friendly, but they showed him nothing but cruelty. He was held down by the woman, and then the man poured petrol over him, and set him alight. He was left for dead, but animal aid workers were alerted and managed to save him. He has made an amazing recovery.”
The 17-year-old man and 22-year-old woman who burned the small chocolate brown mixed-breed dog are charged with extreme animal cruelty. They face a prison sentence of up to six months in jail; fines up to $3,300 USD and a lifetime ban from keeping any animal.

I find I am lost for words to express the feelings I have for these two evil people. Not many things shock me these days but when I see such cruelty be it to Animal or Human, I despair of our world and what it is becoming.

This is an example of animal cruelty that should be given a total stop. Like people, dogs also have feelings. They can feel the pain that this kind of abusive behavior brings about. The heartless individuals that caused this to happen is not different from ruthless criminals that needs to be punished for their insensitive actions.
